Great coffee at home [moved from San Francisco board]

zin1953 | May 8, 2011 12:54 PM

I love espresso . . . I love pourover (drip) coffee . . . I love siphon coffee . . .

The difference, to me at least, is simply the method of preparation -- all can be *great* or, conversely each can *suck* big time!

I admit I went a little overboard, and I have a commercial espresso machine (Elektra "Sixties" T1, FWIW) plumbed into the water supply in my kitchen, as well as a commercial grinder (Mahlkönig K30 Vario). But I also have an 8-cup Chemex for brewing "by the pot," a Clever Coffee Dripper (CCD) for making one cup of pourover at a time, a 3-cup Hario siphon pot, and a small French press at home . . . which I use all depends upon mood.
