Dear interwebs (specifically +Jesse Alexander Eunoia Wolfe
and +Darshan-Josiah Barber
I need a new coffee-making device, please help!
I've been mostly happy with the Keurig, but the song and dance I have to perform to get a decent cup out of the reusable cups is tiresome and the pump in our machine is starting to sound like it's going to be going out soon. Without "hacking" the newish 2.0 models appear to only accept the DRMed K-Cups and I refuse to do that... they've doubled in price since I bought the machine and the amount of waste is......
I've owned a few french presses and generally like them, but the grinders at the store aren't capable of producing a consistent-enough grind to not leave a noticable amount of silt and I don't really want to invest a few hundred $ into a good home grinder.
The interwebs seem to think that the Aeropress is a pretty good thing, but as far as I can tell it's just a less convenient drip- device.
Can you guys offer any advice or recommendations?
