After seeing the recent Ben's Lens about Vietnamese coffee makers I decided to get one. I like coffee a lot so seeing a weird different way to make it gets me interested, and since my fiancee doesn't like coffee a single serve maker is right up my street. I asked Jan about it on Twitter and he advised me to get either a 6oz or 8oz maker, which is just the right size for my TNG cups.
I've only had one brew out of it as of this writing, but so far I'm very pleased. Strong and sweet. Next time I think I'll use a little less coffee for a slightly weaker batch, but I think this thing is a winner. I like the Cafe Du Monde coffee on its own so this also gave me an excuse to splurge for better coffee than I usually buy.
I'm curious about what you folks make your coffee with and what kind of coffee you buy. I usually tend to use a reusable K-Cup filled with store-brand 100% Colombian coffee because I can't really afford to be a snob. When I have places to go I will sometimes use a travel press which I like quite a bit. Now that I have this fun metal contraption though I might use it as my usual brewer for a while and see how it goes. I've also been thinking about getting one of those pour-over reusable metal filters. Thoughts?
