Gave up coffee 4 years ago in favor of tea. I was spending lots of time in India and you just can't get good coffee in India.

At any rate i just have a simple tea pot for boiling water. I never realized how complicated good coffee was until I gave it up.

Never learned to drink regular coffee. Son insisted I try pure Kona coffee one time in Hawaii. Was smooth, amazingly tasty, and didnít have the acid in it that I suspect upsets my system. Unfortunately, the stuff is so expensive I canít afford to drink it often.

Went back to tea, but buy very good stuff and enjoy it. Tea, if you let it, can be quite complicated as well.

As a buddy of mine once pointed out, ďlifeís too short to eat bad food, drink cheap beer, or skip dessert. ď

We also switched to tea many years ago, for which there are a lot of choices and one only needs a small kettle on the stove.
However, I do appreciate a daily espresso with some cookies. After much experimentation, I concluded Nespresso is by far the best choice. I have one at home and their smallest version on the trailer. I also have a Wacaco Nanopress, which is the backpackers version of an espresso maker. For that, you just add boiling water and use the built in hand pump. You have a choice of your own espresso grind or a Nespresso capsule. Small footprint, about the size of your hand.
