Seattle's Best. I also still have a huge container of Ecuadorian coffee that my exchange student brought me two years ago. It's way too strong for me to finish it I've been mixing it in with other stuff.

I usually buy whatever is seasonal at Intelligentsia and make it in a medium-sized french press. I prefer African and Southeast Asian varietals.

I make cold press and french press with Intelligentsia beans now that there's a shop right next to me that sells them. Best beans I've ever had.

I use an air press when I have time, keurig when I don't.

I buy whatever is cheap for beans.

For budget constraints, we've been doing Trader Joe's French beans that we grind. I make coffee every morning with an Aeropress which is truly fantastic. Image. Every now and then we buy Blue Bottle beans at the roastery in Jack London Square area.

I've mentioned it a hundred times, but the Aeropress makes some of the best cups of coffee I've ever had and is cheaper/cleaner than most other non-drip options. I recc it very highly if you just brew yourself like one/two cups a day.

At home, beans from Costco (we rotate through a few of the different varieties they have), Aeropress.

At work, the Zappia Family Espresso from Drew's Brews (local roaster), through one of these:

Typically with hot water added though occasionally at work I will steam some milk for a cappuccino.

i would also recommend buying whole beans, storing in an airtight jar, and picking up a grinder.

i typically buy beans from local roasters, but i will buy starbucks if i forget to pick up from a cafe and am feeling lazy.

Yes, this

Probably the easiest, cleanest, most economical method

i also use the method shown in port's picture, but i don't have an official strainer and place the filter in a metal martini shaker lid. I wonder if the heat absorption of the metal improves or diminishes the quality of the brewing.
