Tomorrow heralds the start of the working year for most people and the stark reality of facing instant coffee in the office is just too much for some to handle

What method do you use to make coffee at work?

Are you planning on taking in a French Press, V60, Kalita Wave or Aeropress?

Or will your boss allow an espresso machine to make an appearance?

Good old Mr. Coffee machine. Don’t have time for those fancy gizmos, and don’t like that over priced, overrated “More Bux” burnt beans stuff….

Coffee ran through one of those pod machines with plenty of sugar and creamer. I hate black coffee but I’m cheap so I don’t venture out past creamer and sugar

Not a very good bot though, no links taking you to dodgy sites.

Damn and I’ve already put in 8 months this year. Is your company hiring?

We have a Black & Decker coffee pot in the office but no one makes the coffee strong enough for my tastes. I have an AeroPress, plus a supply of home-ground dark roast.

To get the best brew out of an AeroPress, I start by pouring in the water and stirring vigorously, then putting the plunger in place and waiting about 30 seconds. Then, I press down slowly (another 30 seconds is just about perfect).

The AeroPress is the bomb. It’s like a French press done right.

I doubt if the OP is going to return, but I do want to point out to those who asked why someone would post a question about coffee on here…

Well, it’s the Coffee Lounge forum. Made sense to me.

I worked at a steel mill for 40+ years and saw a lot of interesting methods.

In one rolling mill, they sheared off the back and front ends of material they were rolling. The pieces were about 5” across and 18” long and about 1800 F. They would let them cool a bit and put an old fashioned percolator on the hot steel. Let it perk a bit and ready to drink. It was also great to heat up lunch.

This is what I keep in my office for my brew. A hand cranked burr grinder and Chemex pot. It’s served me well for almost 15 years now and I still haven’t broken it! :-)

Don’t think about the boss opinion. There are a lot of decent espresso machines under $100(like mine) and beans for a reasonable price. I’m happy with it
