Shawn Blanc turned me on to the AeroPress for making the best cup of coffee in the world. It’s a pretty cheap method for brewing coffee — costing about $25. It’s drop dead simple to use and brews coffee like an inverted French Press.
Adam Lisagor also likes the AeroPress and made a short love letter/spec video of his ritual for brewing a cup of coffee. Coincidentally, this also serves as the perfect commercial for AeroPress. If you drink coffee, you should really pick one of these guys up. I use mine of the weekends to brew a rich pot of coffee right into a thermal carafe.
