How do you prefer to make your coffee?

I really prefer my French press.  It's hands down the most flavorful way to make my coffee.  I have a Keurig which I do use but I still prefer to buy my coffee beans and grind them myself and use my French press.  No electricity needed for the press, except to boil the water.  I grind my coffee beans with a hand grinder which I find better than the electric ones.

I actually have a Keurig brewer that I like to use and as well as a Hamilton Beach Coffee Maker! So I like my coffee using either of those machines.

French press coffee IS amazing though, I wish I had more time to make it in the morning though, I always feel so rushed.

French Press on Apr 14, 2015 @ 09:58 am

I actually don't find using a French press takes much time at all. I have a coffee maker as well and by the time I put in the filter, add the water and grind the beans and the time to brew I could have made my coffee in the press. You just have to experiment with the strength in coffee amounts that you prefer. So now I know how much coffee to put for what I like which took a few trials. You just put the coffee in, pour the boiling water to about 1 inch below the top rim and place the plunger on top but don't press it down. Wait about 2 minutes and plunge and enjoy. So instead of turning on a coffee maker, I turn on the kettle instead and then I just continue to do my morning things.

That's great! on Apr 14, 2015 @ 12:42 pm

Well whatever works best for you right? But I really do love the flavour and aroma of french press coffee, I don't actually own a french press. Maybe I should look into getting one.

You're absolutely right Kylee it's all about what works, plain and simple :) But hey as long as the coffee tastes good I'm good to go :) All are good methods.

I just grind my coffee beans in an electric grinder and throw them in a regular coffee maker. The Keurig type makers are such a waste of money in my opinion; I've known people that have had multiples break in under a year and the pods, unless you do the ones you can refill, are an environmental waste. I think we have a French press but I've never used it, though I wouldn't be opposed to it. My husband had it and I've never seen him use it, so it's stored in a cupboard that I can't easily reach, so I tend to forget about it. Maybe I'll give it a shot one of these days! :)

During the week when we are more crunched for time I use already ground coffee (from a local roaster :)) in our Keurig with the reusable pod. The next appliance on my list is a coffee grinder, because I LOVE freshly ground coffee.

On weekends - french press all the way. You don't need to spend a ton of money on them either - and the flavour is so amazing.

I like my Keurig. I mostly use the refillable pods, but some of the flavoured coffees I stll get the pods.

French press or espresso machine on Apr 23, 2015 @ 12:24 pm

I really adore French press coffee, but also use my Saeco Intellia quite often.

Reuseable kcup or French Press on Apr 24, 2015 @ 07:47 am

I have a keurig, but feel so bad about how much waste it creates. I actually have reuseable kcup style pods that I use, but I also really prefer the taste of coffee from the French Press. It's really nice that you can basically make your coffee as strong as you want based on how long you let it brew.
I actually just restarted using a french press because I got one to review from a place on Amazon. I had totally forgotten about it.

I'll have to use my French press based on all of your reviews. I use a coffee grinder for coffee beans, depends on the beans on how good the coffee is. I was excited about the pod coffee machine, but soon lost interest, the coffee is just ok, use because it's quick.
