With Ducati branded on the thing, you think it would specialize in performance and value? Prolly just overpriced and makes flavored water.

+1 for French Press, it's the best way to have coffee if you have the time.

Take it from me, it's okay...I'm a former Starbucks employee

+1 on the french press. Best brew method I've had, and I love coffee. I got mine at Ikea for about $13

Add ground coffee in bottom of container, top with near boiling water. Replace top and allow to brew to desired strength. Slowly press the plunger down, the screen filters out the grounds. Enjoy yummy pure tasting coffee.

this is what i have. you put the beans in the little box on the top, it grinds them and shoots them down to where the filter is, and it brews freshly ground beans of your choice into coffee. it also has a timer thingy, so you can scare the shit out of your roommates when the thing takes off like a helicopter stuck in gravel at 730am.

ive had mr. coffee, normal coffee pots, and self grinidng coffee machines, only coffee ill drink at home is french press. i like my coffee tasting like coffee not water.

now that said i dont drink coffee at home i go to work and drink it.....gotta love discounted starbucks

Everyone needs a healthy way to relax, mine Church, and two wheels, a stretch of winding road, and a pipe loud enough to give me headaches and make squirrels explode. (Fixed curtousey of PWRMAD)

Nothing is impossible the second we say ill try your already admiting you can be defeated, and the second you say i cant or its to hard youve already failed.

French press is good, I have one and love it. But sometimes only espresso or that European style with lots of foam on top will do.
