Saw another youtube where a guy just wets the handle of a teaspoon, gives the beans a stir for a couple of seconds and no static in the end.  That works well here, I'm happy to report.

I added a few drops of water to my Trader Joe's French Roast Decaf and it worked well.  I will try this spoon option next time.  Thanks.

Resurrection of a useful thread:

Big Lots has a fake Bialetti Moka Pot for sale right now for 4$.

Works like the real thing.

Been using a Japanese style pour-over (mesh cone directly over pot) for the past couple years and can't go back to anything else. Allows a very robust flavor without the grit you get with a French press. The downside is, you have to manually pour water over it a few times. It's been worth it for the wife and I though.

My son is also a pour over convert. He uses that thing that looks like it belongs in a chemistry lab. Even named that way. The Chemex

Ha ha. Yea, when my wife asked for one I thought to myself, "Great, more junk to clutter up the counter-tops....". But, it's really something. I can't believe I spend the time to do it, but I really like the result.

How is it different from the old Melitta system? I used one for years but I guess I got tired of the rigmarole and occasionally knocking it over and making a huge mess. Good coffee though. I think I bought an electric Melitta maker and came to the conclusion that, kept clean, it pretty much did the same thing with less fuss.

That looks like the same thing, in function. But, the metal filter does something interesting in that it lets oils (which normally get stopped by a fabric filter) through. This can be good or bad, depending on the quality of the coffee and how acidic it is.

I never used to drink coffee because it would just bomb my stomach. But, I've found some types that don't bother me so I've been a daily drinker for the past 5 years or so.

I am partial to espresso (made with medium dark, not espresso roasted beans). Two double shots in the morning😱.

Now everything else tastes weak.

But I think the real key to good coffee, regardless of how you prefer to brew it two fold.
1. Use high quality, recently roasted and fresh ground beans of a type and roast you like.
2. Dial in your process, whichever it is, and do it right.

I don’t like espresso from coffee shops, they don’t make it the way I like it. When I get coffee out, I either just deal with their regular drip, or if I am lingering, French Press because then I am really just making the coffee myself.

God, I used to make coffee for my dad when I was just a little kid. Percolator. Before I started drinking it, I'd then make toast with raspberry jam and dunk it and then pour the coffee out. When I was a younger man, I'd drink coffee morning to night. Black and strong. Some people say, "I can't  sleep when I drink coffee." I used to say, "I can't drink coffee when I sleep!" Ba dum pum!
Although now I rarely drink it past noon, I've been using the evil black liquid daily for almost 65 years. I think I might die without it.

Ha ha. bigrin My best friend was like that. Unaffected by the caffeine. Every time we'd be up late partying, he'd fall asleep with a half-empty coffee or Monster energy in his hand.
I take a few sips in the morning, and a few sips in the afternoon. I only drink about half a cup in a day and it still wires me. My wife on the other hand, drinks the other 3 and a half cups from the pot and still feels tired.
