I would like to see budget options for presses/devices/tools to brew the best coffee. Perhaps in tiers like "brew the best best coffee for $20" - "$30" - "$50" etc.

Plan on $20 for the roasting gear, $25 for the french press. So a total of $45 U.S. Then of course there's coffee beans - they go about $6 per pound for green dried coffee beans.

Nah, you can get a decent french press from TJ Maxx for less than $10. For someone on a budget, you'd want to shop the sales and whatnot.

Oh interesting. I got mine off of Amazon - at the time it was $14.99 but now it's up to $24.99. Apparently people are learning about French Press coffee - it's not the French Press of yesteryear I'll tell you that.

I got a really good French Press at my Chinatown for $8. Comparable to a $25 one my sister bought at Target. Let's exclude the coffee beans. I did mention budget options for "presses/devices/tools" after all.

TJ Maxx reco is the best. Can also do Ross or Marshalls if one doesn't live near a TJs.

If you're buying ground coffee then my list would be as follows... ~$10-15 French press ~$30 aeropress ~$40 Chemex pourover
If you want to buy whole beans and get much better coffee, then... ~$35 Javapresse grinder on amazon WITH a French press ~$50 aeropress with same budget grinder ~$60 chewed with same budget grinder
And if you want to start drinking really great coffee you can roast your own coffee at home. I have an air popper I got from sweetmarias.com for $20 and 4 pounds of beans from a variety of locations for $10. So roasting machine and 4 pounds of coffee for $30! It's really simple to do and creates some pretty great coffee! It has an initial investment, sure, but over time you save so much money by not buying your coffee already roasted.
