How You Will Make Your Coffee

The first thing you need to ask yourself is what kind of coffee you like and how much time you’d prefer to devote to making it. You can choose to have a fully automatic coffee machine or a stovetop espresso maker, for example.

If you’re looking to get that full-blown espresso taste minus the cost of buying a fancy machine, Moka pots are the perfect option for you. These coffee makers are also a favorite item for campers who need their caffeine fix everywhere — and happen to have a camping stove.

4. French Press

This is a manual press that uses a mesh metal filter that allows the coffee oils to “land” in your cup, which makes for a flavorful treat instead of them getting trapped in a paper filter.

No matter what type of coffee making option you choose, you will also need a couple of other accessories to make your at-home coffee experience absolutely sublime.
