I've become a great fan of the process of starting with roasted coffee beans and ending up with a glorious cup of coffee, and I have at least three methods I regularly use to make brew up. Much as I enjoy the coffee itself, the ritual of making it is part of the jy. It takes me away from whatever I'm working on a gives me a break as I focus on the moment. In this fast-moving, hyper-connected, screen-based lifestyle, that's a valuable few minutes.
This video captures the ritual beautifully:
I strongly recommend an AeroPress – they make great coffee.
