Years ago, I used to have a coffee maker at work. I made coffee. Then cappuccino and latte became popular so I got a basic machine and made myself latte’s at work.Fast forward a few years and I’m too busy to make coffee so I used instant. I found that I really liked ginseng coffe, like this one:
Then, last year I sort of re-discovered pressed coffee, and honestly the coffee seems just as good as any other way. It’s far easier to make, doesn’t require me to keep watch on it, is cheap (no expensive equipment required!), and easy to clean up.
Mine is similar to this one and it really works great and makes that quick cup of coffee easy.
Oh, and for hot water? I absolutely LOVE my zojurishi. It’s better than under the counter instant hot water on demand heaters. We went through a number of those an invariably, cheap or expensive, the under the counter type all failed in a year or two. The Zojirushi has been going strong for years and is very easy to deal with.
