When Rob and I lived in Charlottesville, we could walk everywhere and it was magical. We could walk to lunch, walk to class, walk to work, walk to get drinks, and I could always walk somewhere to have coffee.

Now that I am back in Roanoke, and about a twenty-five minute drive from downtown, I find myself making coffee at home a lot more. It's an easy time-saver that makes me happy. But how to make it at home? We don't even have a traditional drip coffee maker anymore, and I don't really intend to ever get another one.

I'm partial to my French press for regular coffee, which I find to be much better than a regular drip coffee maker. Our stovetop percolator makes wonderful espresso when I'm in the mood for that, but both the French press and the percolator are really particular and it's easy to mess up measurements and it's hard to clean, especially if you're in a hurry.

I am convinced that no one actually drinks instant coffee unless they are made to, but this article that says that 80% of total coffee drunk in the UK is instant suggests otherwise. But it's made from dehydrating a concentrated liquid solution that was at one time real coffee, and that's gross.

Perfect for the modern coffee-hound. It’s quick, it’s easy, and it’s that sometimes-forgotten characteristic, good.

What's your go-to coffee order? How do you make it at home?
