The list author says: "So you have the coffee bug. You aren't satisfied with the free office brew and have the sense that there is something better than Starbucks out there. Read on.
I'm suggesting the Aeropress as the easiest, least fuss brew method for great coffee in an office. For brewing instructions, take a look at the excellent brewmethods.com. Experiment with different coffees, proportion of coffee to water, grind size and brew time.
Only brew fresh coffee and grind it just before brewing. Experiment with different coffees and see what you like."
"You will need hot water, just below boiling, somewhere between 195 F and 205 F. If your office coffee machine dispenses appropriately hot water, excellent. Otherwise, consider a kettle like this. Heats quickly. Made of glass to avoid plastic flavors and for easy cleaning."
"Always use a glass or glazed ceramic mug. Unglazed ceramic, plastic, paper or stainless steel all impart a taste, either because of an inherent taste, or because the rough surface is difficult to fully clean.
These Bodum mugs are double-walled glass to keep the coffee hot and for easy clean up.
Always pre-heat your mug to avoid over-cooling your fresh-brewed coffee."
