I have a Bodum Vacuum Coffee Maker, both the electric and stove top models.
I have found that the vacuum brewer makes the best coffee.
I do not use it every day, Bodum discontinued the electric version, so when it goes, its gone.
The stove top model only comes out on weekends, as it takes some time. And does not make that much.
I also have French Press, and a Capresso pour through drip, makes decent not great coffee.
For espresso, I have a Bialetti Moka pot, that is the most popular espresso maker in Italy.
The wife uses a K cup machine. The K cup coffee sucks, I grind my own beans and use the K cup adapters.
A decent cup when I am pressed for time.
I use a Capresso Burr Grinder
I buy some beans locally, but Coffee Wholesale in Houston roasts the beans a little darker than most.
My go to is Tanzanian Peaberry, I buy a 5 pound bag at a time, and seal the coffee up in Mason jars with a vacuum sealer.

Dude a vacuum pot is one of the brewing apparatuses I want. That and probably manual pour over chemex I guess. Got any pics of the vacuum pots? How fine of a grind does it take? How long is the total time to make?

I get starbucks house blend or coffee bean french roast because that's the only coffee I can get around me. I have to drive 40 miles to get decent coffee in la. That's me.

Syndcatenova try the Aeropress usually around $25 on Amazon and comes with like 200+ paper filters. Can technically use any grind and you just need boiled water. makes a top 5 cup no doubt.
