I use a Keurig as well and drink a cup every morning.

I recently bought a french press so will be trying that out soon.

Just received a Clever Full Immersion Coffee Dripper for X-mas with some coffe from a local roaster, and I must say I am enjoying this method. You can really get the full flavor of the coffee, and since it still uses a paper filter you don't get the grittiness like you do in a french press. Anybody else using a Clever Coffee Dripper?

Clever's are awesome. It's a great improvement to the old Melitta cone filter. I don't use one, though, I just brew it dirty, and enjoy.

Dirty - dump grounds in cup, pour 195 degree water, stir, let settle, enjoy. ;)

I use a Nespresso machine at home. I'm much more of a fan of straight up shots of espresso, than I am of big cups of watered down coffee, so it's perfect for me. The coffee varieties they offer are great, but I kind of want to upgrade to an actual espresso machine, so I could have even more choices...

I also wouldn't mind getting the equipment needed to make Turkish coffee...

The problem with pod-type machines is 1) you're generally locked in to the pod choices provided, and 2) pods are stale coffee. Because they are stale, you'll never get to try the really good beans, as pod makers aren't stupid, and won't put $50/lb Cup of Excellence beans in a pod, only for it to go stale.

Buying a real espresso machine, be it semi-auto (you grind/dose/brew, like a barista), or a super-auto (you push a button), will allow you to buy the best beans, freshly roasted, and enjoy flavors you didn't even know existed in coffee. Between a super-auto or semi-auto, there's no contest: a machine can never compete with a decently skilled human. ;)

If you need machine recommendations, I can help. Keep in mind if you buy a semi-auto, you'll need another $250-800 for a grinder.

As for Turkish, you can do it in a small pot on the stove with coffee from your local Arab/Persian/ME market. It's easy. I like it with cardamom.

My husband and I just bought a super-auto machine and love it. Now we just have to play around with different types of coffees to see which kind we like better.

Can't live without my coffee. Rarely go a day without it. Tried a lot of different coffee but Sisters Coffee Company | Sisters Oregon seems to always be the best that I've had. Small roasting company just on the other side of the mtn range from me so sometimes it's fun to take a drive through the mountains and grab some good coffee on the other side.

Recently got a Mr. Coffee espresso machine just to try it out. On sale for $30 so I was like eh, what the hell I'll try it. It's decent but gets the job done. Like to see the difference between that and a really good espresso machine.
