2gifts: but they don't mind not buying the fancy coffee and make theirs at home instead.

For those wanting to cut their coffee expense while getting a SUPERIOR java:

Tim Ferriss describes the perfect cup of coffee:

The Aerobie Aeropress coffee press is $26 at Bed Bath and Beyond. And I use my old blade grinder (Ferriss recommends a burr grinder), to grind it 'fine'. This method REQUIRES one to be actively involved in making the cup of coffee.

If one just HAS to have push-button coffee... this aint it.

But it IS consistently GREAT coffee, using HEB $7/lb beans.

this page shows $9/lb... but, HEB OFTEN has sales.

I also buy coffee that is already ground and 're-grind' it to get fine ground.

FWIW: the Aeropress is not absolutely necessary... heating the grounds for 30 seconds, then passing them through a sieve, adding cardamon produces 'Turkish' coffee. There will be some fine grounds in the bottom of the cup.
