I love coffee.
Until recently, I had only had a few great cups of coffee in my entire life. Starbucks? I don't think so. Then I went to Europe to visit my oldest little brother. The heavens parted and the worst cup I had there were better than the best here.
I went searching to duplicate it. Having had some of the best vendors out there, I already knew I did not like them. K-Cups, the little flat pack thingies... etc. Then I found the Senseo. This makes a great cup of coffee. Not the perfect but great.
I had been wanting to get a FRENCH PRESS for years. This past christmas, my wife gave me one and I can say, it is the best gift a man can get ( other than shoes for running across the US 3 times ).
I found the perfect coffee for me. Decaf ( so I can drink more of it ) Carmel Toffee from Millstone. While not the cheapest, it is not expensive either. Just let it steep for 5 full minutes and you are ready to go. Since it uses only about 1/3 as much coffee as a drip system, it works out to be LESS EXPENSIVE than cheap coffee.
