Best but simple coffee

I have had a filter coffee machine, a Senseo pod machine, a Moka pot, a Modo Mio, a Bodrum French Press and Bodrum one cup filter/pour over. What's the current and best product for great coffee and convenience?

I had an Aeropress Latte at my local coffee shop, it was the first coffee I didn't need to add sugar to! I have seen the pour overs, but I don't want the hassle of a special kettle.

At present I am quite content with Nestle Azera, apart from the need to add sugar.

Aeropress for ease of use, convenience, portability, cost and flavour.
My expensive "bean to cup" machine sits sulking in its box somewhere.
But don't listen to me - I think my manual grinder is convenient. :D

I have a morphy Richards coffee machine for espresso and filter but I love my Moka Pots, one small and one large, in the kitchen or over a camp fire perfect coffee every time . You can't take most of these coffee makers into the wilds but the Moka pot is ideal for the job. :) P.

I use a cafetiere at home and an cafetiere mug at work:

Not the best, but a millt times better than drinking instant coffee.


Dumb question - how do the mokka pots work?
The water is boiled in the bottom section and then forced up under pressure through a tube up through the coffee grounds, the coffee is then forced up under pressure through another tube into the top of the pot. Bobs your uncle! :) P.

Our Nespresso does well for our needs.

Only bugbear is Nespresso compatible pods. I’ve purchased some online which were ok, coffee wasn’t brilliant. I’ve purchased original Nespresso online and in a “boutique”.

I’ve also purchased Taylor’s compatibles. A word for anyone with a Nespresso machine, don’t purchase Taylor’s. After buying two packs I found they don’t pierce well resulting in poor to no flow. I emailed Taylor’s and got a reply which was basically “I use them everyday with out any problems”. Also looking at the problem being my machine. My machine is around six months old and Nespresso originals work great. Even Aldi compatibles work without any issues.

Taylor’s sent me three complimentary boxes. After opening and trying still the same issues. A google search reveals many have issues with Taylors pods.
