What is your favorite method of making coffee for yourself?


We have the old-fashion percolator pot on the stove. An electric coffee maker. A one cup drip method. A French press. Which do you prefer and why? There is also what my family call "Cowboy Coffee" , which is a coffee pot with no innards, just fill it with water, toss in the coffee grounds, and set it over a camp fire.

    A lot of people sure like the Keurig. That cowboy coffee recipe is great, Will. Thanks for sharing that.

    Dee, I was going to say in my op that not everyone wants to run out and build a campfire just for a cup of coffee, hahaha -- I threw that in for when we are camping. Instant is good, I like Tasters Choice.

    Good idea, Patsy. My mother also used Mr. Coffee then poured the rest in a thermos she had heated first with hot water. It stayed hot and good all day.

    Hi M. T. I really like my one cup French press coffee. It does take a few minutes and I have to make sure I pre-heat the little pot and my cup with hot water while waiting for the tea kettle water to get boil -- but, it is worth it.

    Dr Bll, I like brewed coffee black. In the evenings I like a hot mocha with ice cream or whipped cream.
