Coffee Fans: How do you make it at home?

I recently got into doing more "in the home" coffee making. I used to just buy whatever I could get at the gas station, and then go enjoy a Starbucks every once and a while.

I got an Espresso machine as a gift, and I fell in love with making all sorts of drinks, and using different flavors, etc, etc, etc... While my setup is far from perfect (or ideal) I am enjoying the learning process on the crap machine, before investing in a good one. I run a Mr. Coffee Espresso Machine (manual... No brew and steam at the same time), ad the matching Mr. Coffee 12 cup coffee maker. I only really use the espresso machine anymore. Soon I want to get a good Semi-Auto machine that allows to brew and steam, get a good grinder and all the tools of the trade.

So I guess the question is... What is your setup at home? What do you make? any good recipes to share?

Post up your coffee setups...

I just use my keurig. It's great. Buy a bunch of different flavors online. Easy to make. It'd just my wife and I at home and we don't drink at the same time due to work hours so it works perfect.

Go to nasioc.com (subaru forum) and search their OT. There is an incredible coffee thread there. You will not be disappoint.

^This man speaks the truth, The coffee thread over there is great. The user, Poison, roasts some of the best coffee I've had.

My daily setup:

Rancilio Rocky doserless grinder (I use setting 6-7 for espresso and 35 for drip)
Gaggia Classic Espresso Machine
I typically purchase locally roasted coffee (Or Poison's)

Senseo. Not as excited about it as I used to be. I think I'll dig up my drip machine just so I can alternate.

That is the most nonsensical post I've seen in a long time. If you make a thread about what everyone's favorite cake is, I'll direct you to the Nike Forum, because they have an extensive thread about cakes.

If at least you had linked to a specific post or something.

Old style stove top espresso maker...Lavazza...Illy less often (at $18/can!)

I'll add this to a short cup of milk with more sugar than I should have...a quick cappuccino without all the time/cleaning involved!

I used to use one for years and years. Fresh ground coffee; two min for water in microwave, perc for 3 mins, and enjoy with 1/2/1/2 and sugar. Labor intensive!

Stove top espresso...water...pack in medium firm...set it and get on fanatics in a.m.! After one post, espresso is done...capo is a few secs. later!

Then, of course, I read from Bentley in my little shrine. I'm on 'removing rear axle carrier' for the third time. It's so deep.

I really need to invest in a press. When I have time, I have a Breville espresso machine that I use, iced latte is the way to fly.

I forgot about my press. I have one too. Mostly for my few limited edition Starbucks beans (Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc) I mostly use a dark coffee (Komodo Dragon, Sumatra) but I have been hooked on Espresso and making lattes lately, I have not had a regular cup of coffee in months.

I'll probably take to ordering some beans online soon, but looking forward to a better machine, some Monin Syrups and some better technique.
