As stated in past posts I started drinking coffee in my mid to late 30s because of simultaneous management of small children, school and work. I’ve gradually developed into a fusspot about coffee and I like learning about other techniques. Previously I used a French press and recently I started using a Chemex. Burr grinder has been my preferred method of bean-grinding for years. My reason for going French press or Chemex is the cost. Cheap and controlled. I had earlier worked up to a $150 Cuisinart and had purchased a $200 espresso machine(what a mess).
