Best method for brewing coffee at home?

rebeccact | Feb 19, 2013 05:10 AM

Hi all,

I am looking for advice on the best method to brew fresh, delicious coffee at home in a not-too-labor-intensive way (for two people). Right now, I have a standard drip coffee maker, and I have been buying pre-ground coffee (but would like to switch to grinding at home). I am wondering what the best method would be that would not take too long or cost too much to implement.

I am thinking about:
1) a French press and grinder
2) a Chemex and grinder or
3) a really good drip machine-- possibly the Bonavita with Thermal Carafe (

I would LOVE to get any advice/thoughts on these three methods and particular models/devices that people would recommend/discourage.

Thanks so much!
