    I love this, Carrie! I’m a coffee freak, but recently switched from a stove-top percolator back to my regular ole drip machine, due to convenience. It would be nice to find something other than the machine, especially that pitcher. I can’t wait to hear your final verdict πŸ™‚

  2. I cannot wait to hear what you thought about all of these different makers! I need my coffee every single morning the moment my eyes open! It’s the first thing I do! I use a drip maker, but I’ve always wanted a press…can’t wait to see how you liked that one!

    • I think it’s more about the ritual for me than anything else, but I’ve also noticed recently that I’m enjoying my coffee more when I drink it now. Or at least wanting to enjoy it. I stopped putting sugar in about a month ago, and last week I stopped adding cream. I figure if I’m going to drink it, I may as well taste it. πŸ™‚

  3. I LOVE coffee! My husband and I make it every morning and use a French press, I’ve used a press for over 20 years and have never looked back. It makes the most delicious coffee I’ve ever tasted. As far as the Keurig, wasteful, do we really need more plastic pods floating in the ocean?, and expensive! I listened to the Colin McEnroe show on NPR about the Keurig and when you add up how much you spend on a pound of coffee it comes to over $50.00!!! I don’t understand the Keurig craze at all, the coffee tasted lousy, maybe I’m a coffee snob! But listen, there are times I want a single cup and I have a single cup French press and you know those presses even look nice sitting on the counter πŸ˜‰
    I look forward to your reviews…

    • It was very easy to reason originally that I was saving money with the Keurig because I wasn’t stopping to buy coffee–therefore, it was cheaper and, in some ways, less wasteful (no cups being thrown out). But I’ve realized it was more of a rationalization to make myself feel better about using it. Bye, bye! I’m ready for the good stuff now!

  4. i am really looking forward to this series! We sound very similar – I didn’t start enjoying coffee until kids, but now, I take it very seriously! I currently use a keurig, but am interested to see how how this turns out πŸ™‚

    I actually drink FAR TOO MUCH COFFEE (so much I sometimes type in capital letters πŸ™‚ ) Really, though, I drink about 6 to 7 cups per day. That’s a big reason that I’m very interested in your coffee series to see what you find out!!

    • So a one-cup maker would help reduce your intake? πŸ˜‰ The biggest thing I’ve taken away from this journey is that there is no excuse for drinking bad coffee–and it doesn’t have to cost you a small fortune to have the better stuff!
