My morning ritual usually starts with Nespresso drip coffee, it’s quick, easy and really a no brainer. This weekend we got a little fancy and made a cappucino, I think we found our not so lazy Sunday caffine kick!

I prefer a siphon brewer a.k.a. vacuum pot, it produces the best tasting coffee, but usually use a Keurig because I don't have enough time for anything else. I would love to get a professional espresso machine and coffee roaster, though.

The Chemex Coffeemaker, made from non-porous glass and fastened with a wood collar and tie, is like a giant pour-over mechanism and is designed to brew coffee without imparting any flavors of its own. A great way to produce a more intense, rich cup than what comes out of your automatic cappuccino coffee machine, the french press is an excellent first step. Cappuccino is an espresso-based drink, of Italian origin, with 1/3 espresso, 1/3 steamed milk, and 1/3 wet foamed milk. The difference between a latte and a cappuccino is the milk content. Latte has a lot of milk, whereas cappuccino is a strong coffee.

My ritual is french press. Kudos to a kitchen conundrums youtube video and some trial-and-error, this is my setup right now.
  1. Bring 12 oz+1 tbsp water to boil. Get the coffee maker in place meanwhile.
  2. Just when the water comes to boil, take it off the heat. Pour a little water in coffee maker, swirl and throw water away.
  3. After 20 seconds, pour in 4 tbsp grounds in coffee maker, then just enough water to cover the grounds.
  4. Wait 10 seconds, pour rest of water in and give a stir with a spoon. Brew for 4 mins for a medium roast, 3.50 for a light roast. Not a second more or less.
  5. Pour immediately and (finally) enjoy!

I've come to love my Nespresso, it's just so easy and makes a consistently enjoyable cup.

I make a pour-over at home with a Kalita Wave. Usually around a 1:15 brew ratio. Bonavita's 1 L gooseneck kettle is great for holding temperature where you want it and maybe once a month or so I'll order 3rd Wave Water and just add it to gallons of distilled water from the grocery store. Ialmost prefer making coffee at home as I have yet to find shops I like that are conveniently located in my new city. I don't want to take that foray into home roasting yet, I feel like I'd sacrifice a ton on quality over a roaster I respect for the simple fact that I'd take on far more uncontrolled variables, same with espresso tbh.

ha! I love your comment-- "more uncontrolled variables"! You must run statistically designed experiments for a living. Good one.

I started out with a LaPavoni manual machine, and later I had one of those $2K monster espresso machines. These days I live in a smaller space, and my favorite is Aeropress, and I am now trying out Cafflano. If I need an authentic espresso, I go to an Illy cafe. Still the best. Starbucks really does not cut it, but it'll do if I have to travel too far for Illy.

It would be useful to us novices(like strong coffee but still just grind beans from the store and use a simple coffee maker) if you could offer some specifics: -- what makes espresso so much better tasting than strong coffee. Is it possible to verbally describe the taste difference and details why you must have this instead of regular strong coffee? -- If I was to move up to an expresso maker and did not want to spend over, say, $300, could you recommend something close? -- details about why you like Aeropress and Cafflano? thanks!

I thumb my nose at purists! Was considering a Jura E8, but at the last minute decided on this one. Won't arrive for another three days...

Buy the way, ultimately, all machines are "one-button" machines, as in: "add to cart"
