To me, nothing beats fresh coffee brewed from freshly roasted beans. I've been slacking lately, drinking Cubita... so I decided I needed to order some more green beans to try out. I have some Kenyans, Sumatrans, Ethiopians, Costa Rican, Bolivian, and Blue Mtn on the way.
Right now, my preferred brewing method is by French Press. I've been thinking about one of those vacuum brewers, but I've heard some negative comments about the water sitting on the grounds too long. I've also been thinking about trying out a stovetop Moka pot for something a little stronger. I'd like to get a espresso machine, but can't exactly drop 300-400 on a really good machine for a while.
