I'm talking about making your standard, drinkable-around-the-clock coffee. I just use a cone-filter coffeemaker with paper filters for ease. Is there a noticeable difference between paper & gold plate or whatever else is out there? What about the French press method? I've tried this but I really don't like the sediment on the bottom of the cup and the cleaning part sucks too. And the percolator method? How do you make your coffee?
