'Better coffee' is very subjective. One person prefers McDonald's coffee over Starbucks, another prefers coffee with a higher sediment content, anther prefers coffee made from beans that have been through the digestive tract of an animal.

Well stated, it can get very time consuming and expensive the deeper in the hole you go. The quest for "the best coffee" should really just be finding what you like.AncientWords wrote: ↑Aug 11th, 2018 5:41 pm'Better coffee' is very subjective.

This type of system tends to give you a much cleaner coffee taste than one where your hot water is touching plastic and paper. The brewing process itself also tends to extract less of the 'unpleasant' tastes you might get from from the coffee itself during a drip brew cycle. Some people prefer those tastes.
Personally I like to put 6oz of water through a double shot portafilter to start getting the bitter tastes from the espresso grounds, then top it up with hot water to fill a 20oz Zojirushi. It's very much a personal taste, and if you're new to customizing coffee to your preferences, you might be better off trying out different brews at cafes or friends houses before you drop money on what can be an expensive hobby.
Before you know it you'll have a freezer full of wet-process fair trade organic beans from a dozen countries and a counter that looks like it might belong in a science lab when you find out that all you really wanted was an aeropress and beans from Costco - but you bought into the hype before you knew what you liked.
