I dont care how much better it tastes, thats too much hassle for a cup of coffee.  I'll stick with the french press

I haven't had french press in a while, but I will say that in my opinion the taste of the coffee that comes from a french press versus coffee from a pour over does not even compare.

Anytime I visit my LCS (local coffee shop, obviously) if I am not going for espresso (americano or a straight double (or rarely a latte)) I go for coffee.. and usually a pour over. Both LCSs do pour overs and it takes about 5 minutes, but is worth it. My LCS is Topeca - http://www.topecacoffee.com/

At home I use the AeroPress. Again, somewhat time-consuming and labor-intensive compared to a drip machine or french press.. but I manage.

Wow, maybe I'm too American, but I am not spending 7min 21sec to brew a single cup of coffee.  I get impatient when my Keurig is not fast enough (probably 30sec/cup). 
 
I don't doubt that it tastes better;  I just don't care all that much.


We have a keurig at work. I can't find any k-cups that are good. There are a few that are alright, but not any that i'd go out of my way for.
Do you think we're gonna make it? / I don't know unless we try / you could sit here scared to move / or we could take them by surprise

Ha!  I didn't notice it before but we have one too.  Got it as a wedding present eight years ago.

The coffee in that cup, by the way, is Paul DeLima Classic roast. Their roasting operation is not too far from here.

Give Caribou Coffees a try.  They aren't too bad.

I'm working from home full time starting Tuesday, so I figured I'd up my coffee game.  Bought a Bodum Bistro grinder (~$100) and an Aeropress last weekend.  That makes some damn good coffee.  Even my girlfriend was convinced, and she ruins her coffee with all sorts of milk and sweeters:).

My wife does the same thing, but she prefers to make coffee [that she will soon destroy w/ creamer and stuff] using the Aeropress.
