    Mokka pots and a tin of red illy coffee for me. Gotta watch urself with coffee tho... all to easy to ramp it up and drink far too much to live a healthy life. I know an Italian chap, my old spanner in fact, did over 15 expressos a day.

    Unless anyone is going Columbia, then I can put an order in for some special stuff...

    Absolutely... I have a mild addiction and used to drink a lot more but now limit myself to 3 a day MAX... it is more often just 1 or 2 though and NEVER indulge after 2-3pm.

    Not much of a coffee snob here. Dolche gusto machine at work, 48 americano pods for £10, two minutes, done, back to work.
    No sympathy for the devil; keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride...

    Aeropress is AWESOME!.

    At home I have my Gaggia Classic machine that I make proper espresso on (not one of these pod machines) and it is awesome too. Fantastic coffee, great milk steamer on it. Makes a fantastic latté.

    In work, I have my Aeropress and my god that thing makes SMOOTH tasty coffee.. No shite in the bottom, not bitter. In fact, I'd run out of good coffee and was given some by a colleague. It was cheap nasty shite from home/bargain and the Aeropress actually made it taste much better. Put a good quality coffee in it and it's heaven.

    Thanks to dpSparhawk

    Another vote for Aeropress here. It does make really good coffee, and as said above simple to clean by popping the whole lot straight into the bin, residue and filter in one pop.

    On the advice of the DF massive, I got an aeropress about 18 months ago and its provided me with my coffee fix daily since. I use the paper filter and like malt, I ain't no peasant, 1 filter 1 coffee.

    As someone else mentioned there are reusable metal filters, I picked up a knockoff one for a few quid but I find the paper filtered coffee is a bit smoother, although I have heard some purists talk about preferring the metal filters as they let certain oils through...or some shit.

    I dunno about in blighty but you can get clones of the aeropress here for about 9quid with all the spoons and shit. I got the real deal for about 20 but after seeing my mates clone, apart from lacking the 1980's smoked coffee table colouring, it's exactly the same.

    I went a bit nuts on french dark roasted coffee but that shit was so strong I was finding it was taking over my nervous system. I literally had to go cold turkey for a few weeks and now I just have a cup of italian roast in the morning to flush out my bowels and the occasional latte from a shop near my work in the afternoon.

    There's an annual aeropress competition and you can find the winning brewing methods online, I went a bit zen and followed last years winner for a while, which was a japanese guy so everything was to exact weights and temperatures. Have to admit the coffee produced from that was off the scale, but it was too much fucking about for me.
