The excessive coffee caught up with me so switched to tea...whoa, the pain.  :-X So, try to only have coffee 1 or 2 days a week.

The Mrs. has tried to complicate coffee. It's a simple thing with zen-like qualities when kept at a basic level. First it was a K-cup machine--that ended up clogged, giving me 1/3 cup. She cleaned it, etc. blah blah--ended up sailing off the 2nd story balcony.

The next was a machine that "will do it all...". Place the beans in it with water and it will auto grind, shoot the coffee into a filterless contraption. Ended up clogging the grindings and overflowing and/or a pot full of grounds. It too sailed off the deck one early morning.  (can I even explain how much joy this gave me!)?  :D

Simplicity is where it's at for me in the matter: ground coffee, put scoops into personal size french press, let sit a few minutes, push handle down, pour--great taste, no BS, works EVERY single time. First experienced this at Egg Restaurant in Brooklyn...simple kinda place with great/wholesome food!

I still prefer my percolator and a stove top percolator even more than the electric. The stove top over a camp fire is another step ahead of that.

A french press is without a doubt my favorite, my 1 qt (single serving  ;D) press is a good friend indeed.  Also agree on ditching all the fancy machines.  Now the next trick is getting light roasted African beans into it.   I've got a good supplier of Kenyan AA and for the price it is a *DanG good wake up.  I have to stop about noon though and it is hard to find good decaf. 

Counter Culture (for all you coffee snobs) is the best I've had but at $18 for 12 oz it is an expensive cup.  I am not a fan of Columbian or Brazil but the CC East African coffees are the best ever and after 25 years of being a coffee fanatic I think I'm confident with that statement.

More often than not, 1 24 oz cup in the morning. I make it black, but if somebody comes in with a small one that has some milk or cream, I don't turn it down. I make the large one decaf. DanGdest thing, the caffeine does something with the medicine I take, and I don't feel right. Later in the day I can swing a hi-test or two

K-cup coffee maker...When it gets stingy and makes 1/2 cup or less per brew,and the recommended de-scaling does no good,  here's a gotcha...pull the removable filter from the water container..Underneath is a round knob with 3 stainless phillips head screws. remove them and pull out the plastic knob. Inside that is a fine wire mesh filter, can't clean it without removing the assembly. Mine was badly clogged. Made a world of difference.

Starbucks medium roast is good but I cannot handle the dark. I need to get another percolator, basket went missing from the last one. Karen wouldn't drink perc but it is still my favorite.

With this weather coming through today I just brewed me a cup and will feed the fire.  Matter of fact, later this morning I may very well brew me another cup.   :)

Tea for me with breakfast just  touch of sugar (our tea makes most folks coffee look weak) then black coffee at the office. Two 20 oz mugs a day.

Years ago, I read a report that people who drink 8 or more cups of coffee a day have a longer, stronger, and more satisfying sex life than other groups of coffee drinkers. I can attest to the validity of the claim.  :)
Fall 2013 purchased Stihl MS 660 and an Alaskan 36" mill, am happy with the setup, hobbyist not a volume producer, have milled oak, hickory, yellow pine, and power poles.
