One washer, two dryers if you count the clothes line (which gets far more use than the electric one).  Two hoovers but really should get rid of the crappy one. The only roombas are the Dalmatians.

This thread got me thinking about how many different ways I have to make coffee at home:

  • A couple of never used espresso machines.
  • Somewhere between 2 and 4 Melitta manual pour over systems (haven't check the count in the camping supplies)
  • A Bialetti type stove-top thing
  • An Aeropress with paper and metallic filters
  • A french press which gets used for cold press
  • A home-rigged cold drip system but the water carafe has been hijacked to make kombucha
Not bad considering I always go support my many coffee dudes instead

We recently bought a new drip machine to replace one that died. We also have a French press as a backup.

I was going to suggest an Aeropress since you are a landlubber now. But on the rare occasions I make hot coffee at home, I just use a manual Melitta pour-over and a kettle.


That didn't fix the sleepiness, or general lack of coordination.

I have on old version of one of those but it has a more analog aesthetic. Haven't used it in about 8 years but it still has a prominent place on the coffee cart.
Now I use a great looking black stainless steel French press, hand powered ceramic burr grinder and a airtight coffee bean bin. It's a great system except for
a bit of work when grinding the beaners - but it's about the only exercise I get these days.

first time having coffee made from a bialetti over the weekend at a friends house & it was delicious, best coffee i've had in a while. i might ask for one for xmas.

at home i mainly use the aeropress because i'm the only coffee drinker in the house. i also occasionally use the esspresso maker or french press, but using a paper filter removes some artery clogging oils

We've had this one for a few years.  The OXO 9 cup maker (apparently 8 was just too small, and 10 too large?).   .
OXO Brew 9 Cup Coffee Maker. View a larger version of this product image.

I like a carafe, so I can drink it slowly over the course of the morning.  It was a gift when there was one coffee drinker in the house (me), and is now working OT with 3 at home.  We end up making 2 pots in the morning now.  After almost 3 years (~1,000 pots), it's showing signs that the end is coming.  There is a small drip coming from the section that holds the basket/grounds.  It's not a big deal, but I'm guessing one of the rubber pieces is beginning to fail.   All in all, it's been good.  Coffee starts and stays hot for a few hours.
