There are many ways to make a coffee however which, in your opinion, is the best method in terms of taste, convenience, price and skill?

Some of the larger coffee machines produce appealing results with their multitude of functions but contain a large number of moving internal parts that must be serviced properly to avoid breakdowns.

Other coffee machines such as moka pots can last a lifetime with only seal replacement required. That's providing that the unit is stainless steel.

Depending on the coffee making method, a separate milk frother may be beneficial to complete the final taste.

My best cups of coffee have been with a 2 cup moka pot and a conical grinder - both totally affordable. I grind Macro organic coffee beans *coarse for moka pot* with my conical grinder and then fill the filter basket with grounds leaving a little gap from the top. Not all the way to the top. Same with the water. The water should never pass the valve.
I add sugar and milk as desired with a taste test along the way.

Did you like your conical grinder? I have a noise imposing Breville. Sooner or later every Breville appliance in my ownership has broken, even when barely used and cared for.

Never had success with coarse grounds. The granules get into in my coffee.

I think the taste of coffee depends more on the type of coffee beans and the way they were roasted and grinded.
Recently, I decided to do everything on the way to the perfect cup of coffee myself. I mean, I had a popcorn popper and now I use it regularly for roasting good coffee beans, grind them myself and make my perfect morning coffee using my lovely coffee machine(which isn't professional or extra expensive).

Do you grow your own beans or do you buy them fresh from somewhere? How does the taste compare to store bought beans? Very interested in trying this.

Breville, really. o_O They'e price is haha up there.

I never thought I needed a conical grinder *true skeptic then* until my best friend's brother gave me a demo - to the nonbeliever I was. He made two cups of coffee (with the same beans) grounded in a conical then flat burr grinder. From cup to cup (same proportions) the flavour change was huge - I could taste all the notes. So that's how I got myself one and yes, I recommend a conical grinder to every coffee connoisseur.

Great poster, I'll use it for my coffee.

But I'll have to get a coffee grinder, because I use already ground beans.
