We use a coffeemaker hard, we make a full 12-cup pot of drip coffee every morning, and very often make a pot of green or mint tea in the afternoon to drink the rest of the evening. We got this economical one from The Webstaurant Store's ebay shop and are very pleased with the coffee. We use this method but we don't grind our own beans, we just use the same old Folger's Hazelnut we like. Pretty fast, really easy and the coffeemaker is always clean, unlike our old drip pot.
It makes great tea, too. We like to make green tea, or our 'Doublemint Tea', one measure each of dried Spearmint and Peppermint leaves we buy by the pound from San Francisco Herb Company.
