For pure convenience I do love my Nespresso. I'm not sure I would buy one again but it does make amazing coffee.

If you want a coffee unlike any other, you must buy Aeropress. It's the real deal but not for people that use cream and sugar- good coffee is always had black

Cheap Walmart drip - frenchpress , whatever, I’ll use any of them other than any k-cup machine- they just don’t make a half decent cup of coffee! I used to purchase expensive coffees and grind fresh but for me, there just wasn’t that big of a difference! We just recently went back to Folgers , I didn’t tell my wife and she commented on how good it was lol. I’ll drink it fresh hot, Luke warm , cold ( none of that iced coffee stuff) . I’ll drink it after it’s been in the pot all day.

Best coffee maker?? Me, with a simple receipe and a little effort. Distilled water, freshly ground (quality) beans, good french press and a some patiences. I used to drive 16 miles round trip 5 or 6 days a week for a decent cup of coffee. But, now, l've learned how to roll my own and I can make better coffee at the house than I could get at Jittery Joe's. Like most things, quality ingredients and patiences are the key.

Good luck,
Ed

I never drank a full cup of coffee in all my years. I didn't like the taste. It always seemed to be bitter and taste kind of funky. I have tried them all because my wife loves coffee. I got her a new coffee maker and decided to get her a bunch of Black Rifle Coffee to try. She loved it over her favorites.
It smelled so good brewing that I gave it a try. I now drink coffee, but only BRCC. I only bought it for her because I liked the company and the things they do. Ended up becoming a coffee drinker.

Ninja 10 cup brewer and we grind our own beans.The Cusinart Grind and Brew is a good one as well. Once you grind your own, you will never go back to that bagged stuff at the store. Our favorite place to order from is in Tyler, called Coffee City Coffee. They roast them right before they are shipped. Their website offers dozens of choices. We are partial to the ones in their “flavored” category.

Coffee is inexhaustible, and you can easily have long chats about the minutiae of things like the seasonality of fat contents in our local dairy supply. However, it has decreasing returns; the further you go, the less improvement you get for your work, and the truth remains that it is "only a cup of coffee". Every individual must determine how much they want to work for their coffee, as well as their particular choice.
Coffee beans are alive, fighting oxidation to death. By modifying the surface area of a coffee bean, you can drastically alter its oxidation rate.
The simplest method, which I usually use, is to buy locally roasted coffee, which eliminates weeks or months of supply chain and distribution delays. The bag should have a roasted date on it and should be purchased within a few days of roasting.
Then, within my budget, I purchased a good quality espresso coffee maker which has a grinder attached to it, allowing me to grind whenever I want. This is how I've felt.

I like several of Black Rifle coffee. I get how better coffee and water can make a difference in the taste.
But as to how, I have used multiple mr coffee style machines and prefer the simpler the better. I use a peculator when tent camping but someone is going to have to show me the difference between drip, pour over, french press.
Seems like the chemical transfer would be the same.

Here's another for nespresso. If you drink lots of coffee, go for something else cause it gets expensive at a dollar a cup. But if money isn't a concern it is the absolute most consistent coffee I've had. Stormio is an amazing coffee.
