Re: How do you make coffee?

Do you like iced coffee? My sister just turned me on to the Pioneer womans iced coffee and she said it is amazing! I can't help you with the grounds because I grind whole beans for mine every morning.

I have a senseo and I love it, but the pads are kinda expensive. Probably not cheaper than what your doing already. I like the french press idea

Re: How do you make coffee?

we use a french press or an espresso maker. Its really the only way to make coffee if you ask me.

wyldcat- get one now, they are really inexpensive and make such a good cup of coffee. I love mine for when I want a coffee and my hubby isn't home. That way I can make just the right amount.
I can second that the pioneer woman iced coffee is AMAZING.

French press here.
4 tablespoons of coffee, fill to top with almost boiling water (boiling if I'm too busy to pay attention), wait just a bit (if I have time), swish it all around (if I feel like it), press the thing down. DONE!
Don't think I'll ever go back to a machine. I can taste the difference! Press is smoother and more flavorful! GREAT Combination!

Good luck!

Re: How do you make coffee?

I have a 12 cup Rival coffee maker and I use 1/3 cup of grounds per pot, which makes a great pot of "medium" coffee. My Mom always made her coffee that way and I am not going to fix what isn't broken. LOL I have a small plastic measuring cup that I leave in the coffee can just for that purpose.
