Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
I prefer a 1950's era percolator. I think as the coffee washes over the grounds, is reduces the acid or something. Very smooth coffee.... I can even taste the cigareeets of the previous owner some mornings!! ;)
You left off step #7, clean it.
A lot of time and work for a cup of coffee. I'll just put a pod in my Keurig and sip then coffee in about 30 seconds.
"Instant joe" ??
Aerobee AeroPress for three years now, and still happy. Only downside is that it's inconvenient for large batches.
My wife liked coffee in a french press, but I prefer the drip filter. The press coffee always had coffee grounds in it; people tell me it doesn't, or that I'd get used to them; it does and I didn't.
