They can be as inexpensive as $15. I dig 'em.
The older I get, the more I appreciate things like less waste and saving grinds for my compost. French Press checks both of these boxes.

Just a heads-up...cleanup time is slightly longer than other coffee making methods.

Aeropress is my go-to for a quick single cup. Get a tea kettle rolling on the stovetop, grind a couple scoops of beans. It brews right into whatever cup you're using. Total brew time is less than 2 minutes and cleanup is a breeze. I will just rinse in hot water most times, and only really clean after several uses.

A little finer than drip. I use it inverted, 23g of coffee, water at probably 200-205 (I get it boiling then let it sit for a couple min). Fill to the top with water and stir for like 10sec, let it sit for a minute and stir one more time, then flip onto my cup and slowly press. There are tons of recipes out there, this one just seems to work well without too much fuss.

I love, but hate this forum. From reading reviews, I now want an aeropress, which then means I need a grinder too.

You dont need a grinder, you can still buy ground coffee. You just usually get a better tasting and better quality coffee when you buy whole bean and grind it yourself.

i love whole bean... so much fresher and more versatile (sorry)

Burr grinders are the way to go if you have a choice.

I think the wife called me pretentious.
"I was reading about that new disc golf company's coffee. Now I think I want a press and a grinder"
"So K-cups aren't good enough for you now"

Horsman, I figure if I'm trying something new for better flavor, might as well grind it fresh too.

When I first started playing disc golf, everything “went left”. I did some research and found out that a Stingray is supposed to “go right”. So I bought a DX Stingray, threw it, and watched it go left. I was disappointed that I had just wasted $7.

The problem was I didn’t really know how to throw a golf disc. Now that I know how to throw, all molds are much more fun and I can enjoy the nuances between each.

I would caution anyone’s first foray into boutique coffee making methods. If you don’t understand the basics of coffee-making or if you don’t have a very refined palette, then you might not pick up the nuances that freshly ground beans have to offer. If you have both of these intact, then you can unlock a world of fun and experimenting.

I have to admit before reading this thread, I thought grinding your own coffee was a bit pretentious. But after reading this, I may have to dish out for a grinder and some whole beans. For fresher taste and also purity.
