How do you make your coffee?

I don't use a machine, I just put a cone with coffee on top of the mug and pour the water through it. I pour a small amount of water through 1 or 2 times before pouring most of it, unless it's very finely ground coffee.

I love coffee therefore this is a great thread for me
Ever since I started drinking coffee I used what you call Ibrik. This is also the same method they use when they make the coffee slowly on hot sand >>mm yum, stronger and more flavor{aka À la Turque (as Turquish people do )}. IbriC(with a 'c') is also the Romanian word for that specific coffee pot. We borrowed it from our Turquish invadors.
I also use the percolator and the coffee machine. I voted for the latter since I have used that a lot more lately. Either method is fine with me as long as the result is strong black coffee .
Because I have done it for so long I will always have an affinity with the Ibrik method however.
One more thing - not only do I love the taste of coffee but also the smell. It is very inspiring to me to have a cup of coffee, a book ..preferable in French this time around...and I don't despise the smell of a burning cigarette meating the coffee's at all. I could read like that all day. You could call me a bookworm .

explore, doubt and discover for yourself what is the truth.

I am a semi-reformed coffee addict! I used to drink more than a pot a day. Then I had to change to decaf, and lo and behold, I was not lying awake until 5 a.m. as often! I drink coffee black with sugar when I drink it, but now those times are rare. However, I recently discovered that cafe' au lait is excellent. I use dry creamer instead of milk. Mmmmm, creamy. I haven't had a cup in months, but I'm going to go do that now!

I depends what I fancy, I have a perculator and instant.
With instant I have a lot of coffee, but also a lot of milk, with perculator I have strength3 (which is nice with cream)

I've been through it all with home brewing, drips, espresso machines, gravity fed cosmo inductive bottom poured magnetic resonance percolator, etc. You name it, I've tried it.

now- bottled water+microwave+folgers instant= mmmmmmahhhh!


...and I've never been happier, and the dentist says my teeth are far less stained than they normally are

Poor, misguided Sam! There is only one way (besides iced!) to drink tea, black, with a half teaspoon of sugar and a slice of lemon! Of course, iced tea is better.
