    We have two of those simple
    Percolators that we use for camping. One big for a group one small for just the wife and I.
    Wellllll they started out being for camping but he coffee taste so good when made in one that we now routinely use it on the stove top. Love it!!

    My office uses one of those Nespresso machines. I don't drink coffee but they seem to like it. It is kind of loud though.

    It seems like half of the exotic varieties out there smell like an ash tray. Maybe they get spit out by a volcano. I don't understand the attraction. I drink Folgers Classic Roast black, but I'll drink any caffeinated coffee in a pinch because that's what I drink it for, the caffeine.

    I've been swilling Chock Full o' Nuts New York dark roast. Now if I don't get dark roast I can't taste it.

    I use a moka pot. I tried a French press once and got too many grounds in it. Plus I preferred the moka pot taste and consistency. Maybe it’s just what I’m used to... and maybe it was user error on the French press. One thing I don’t do is make drip coffee at home. I’ll drink it no prob if that’s what’s available, but I don’t make it.

    I’ll tell you what, though... when I lived in Germany I had a Senseo machine. That made some of the best home coffee I ever had to this day. I can’t believe that Kuerig became the standard machine over the Senseo. Keurig is horrible.

    Hate Kuerig. I'm staying with my folks until my apartment becomes available and it's what they have. I just can't get it dialed in right.
