For years, I've been a big supporter of french press coffee as my home brewing method; espresso machines are too expensive and bulky, so it seemed like the next best thing. And I still think it is.
But lately, I've gotten tired of the rigmarole involved, especially cleaning the pot afterward. So I broke down and bought a drip machine. It sure is fast, and, I have to admit, pretty easy, though the coffee isn't the same, I think it's likely that I'll use it more often, and I guess that's important.
