A stove top percolator for us - all the time. You will get more flavor extracted from the coffee bean when you know how to cook your coffee.
My wife and I can always find a happy medium in how strong the coffee can be with a percolator. She likes strong coffee but ruins it with cream, sugar, etc..... I like straight black coffee - the only way to drink it - I like to actually taste the coffee, not the additives.

The glass vacuum coffee percolater is called a Cory.
Here's a you tube video of it in action.

Anyway, I tried to post it. Here's the link

For x-mas a friend of mine gave what has to be one of the best presents I have received, a Handpresso handheld espresso maker. This little thing is ingenious and makes amazing espresso. Very easy to make lattes in the AS even without power.



Handpresso Wild Hybrid Coffee Machine

The Handpresso uses the ESE espresso packs which are environmentally friendly, very easy to use and affordable. I buy them in bulk from Amazon 150 packs for $59. Caffe Borbone- Espresso Pods - ESE Espresso Pods - (150 PACK)

We use an Aeropress. Being full-time we want our coffee but with little real estate taken up. We usually make two cups at a time with it. Perfect for our usage.

We get our coffee shipped up from "Nawlens" ! The wife is a "24 karat coon-ass" ! A coon-ass is a Cajun, for all you northern folk.

Either cowboy coffee, grounds in pot, or French press. But I also use my espresso machine for my cappuccino, one or two, at a minimum, each morning. In my photos showing modifications to my Serenity, you can see the "espresso table" with grinder, brewer side by side.

I cut my "coffee tooth" on chicory coffee when I lived in the Big Easy in the 80's. Community Brand coffee and beignets, though I never did get use to that first bite out of a hot beignets. I'd always end up breathing in a nose full of powdered sugar on the first bite, then sneezing my head off.

Thank you all for your comments. Looks like the French press is the preferred method. Have never used one but looks straight forward. Years ago I discovered that the instant coffee packs found in C-rations is not the best coffee in the world (good enough at the time though)😁 .
Scooter-- awaiting our new AS also and studying to try and get it as right as possible. We should have ours in about five weeks.
Thank you all again.
Dave

If you have never had French Press coffee, might try it somewhere before buying one.

It has a different taste than brewed or perked, and not everyone likes it.

We never did......it's what you are served in primarily tea-drinking countries, England and Ireland.

(Bayfield, WI, is a beautiful town.)

Much depends on how you take your coffee. Those who take it black can notice bitterness more than those who take it with milk/cream and sugar. The casein in dairy neutralises bitterness. Sugar masks it.
As Mme Melitta discovered a long time ago, filter paper absorbs the oils that cause bitterness and allows for a finer grind. The finer grind results in more flavor from less coffee. Espresso systems avoid bitterness by speeding up the process so that less oils are extracted. The French press is the leader for bitterness, followed by perc, cowboy, espresso and filter.
Another consideration is shelf life. Coffee oxidises and after an hour is unfit for consumption. It tastes burnt. Making more than the immediate requirement is senseless. This begs the question, how much capacity do you really need, and makes a strong case for single serving systems like the Keurig et al.
For myself I use a 6 cup espresso pot and a Melitta #2 filter that sits on top of a mug. The 6 cups are actually espresso cups and result in a travel mug full of very strong coffee. It can be diluted for sharing. The filter system serves for a milder cup of joe.
I dislike the single serving machines as they take up too much space and produce too much non recyclable waste.
