Although they have been around for a couple of years, the Aeropress has only become available here quite recently. They have had the best reviews, and though I resent the high UK price compared to the US, I suppose I will have to have one, as I am a sucker for any new coffee machine. It's part of the search for that holy Grail for every caffein addict, the perfect coffee machine. Someone somewhere will someday make the machine that can capture the most intoxicating of smells, that of fresh roasting coffee, in a cup.

What makes the best coffee for you?

I prefer atmosphere with my coffee. The smoothest cup of coffee tastes bitter if you are drinking in preparation for a 12 hour midnight to noon shift. Brewed coffee tastes good on a warm spring afternoon sitting in a sidewalk café in an old city in France.

___________________ Many of you know that my father was an engineer, In fact the senior engineer at the factory he worked at. That said the engineers offices and the skilled trades department were seporated by the metalergy lab so it was decided that the met lab would house the best coffee pot that they could build. Huge taste and odor filters on the incoming water, Auto Ph detection and photometers to check on the brew. While storing coffee if too much water evaporated more was added to bring Ph and or color back to where it should be. If the circuits detected that the brew was too far out of wack it was dumped and a new brew commenced, it may not have been the best coffee, but it was the most consistant.

The best coffee I ever had was after coming off Dartmoor from a force 7 blizzard after being made to stand still for around an hour so we could be "rescued" rather than walking back to camp. It was hot, wet and sweet.

After half the cup had gone I realised that the coffee was actually the worst I'd ever had, so there you go. Enjoy 2 days of hardship before every cup, but only drink half!

I've actually never been one for coffee machines. For religious reasons I object to anyone having to spend large sums of money on a machine just to have a decent cup of coffee.

And it remains the fact that the best coffee I've ever drunk was an espresso, the first I ever ordered solely in pidgin Italian, in a tiny Italian cafe.

It was brewed in a stovetop espresso maker, of the kind I consequently picked up for €5 (that's about $5) in the supermarket a couple of days later.

once in Italy (Perugia) I ordered a coffee drink that was 50% coffe and 50% balsalmic vinegar, just to taste it because I couldn't believe soeone would drink coffe with vinegar in it.

It was pretty good. Not the best coffee I have ever had, but good enough to write home about.

We JUST got an espresso maker imported directly from Italy. Made by Jolly Cafe. Best damn 2500$ CAD we ever spent. Now when i am doing a ram upgrade fro a customer... we make them an espresso or a cappuccino! The added bonus here... I NO LONGER BUY OR DRINK TARFUX COFFEE!
