The French Press - Strong Coffee Lover
French presses are a simple way to make coffee hot. All you have to do is steep the coffee in hot water.

AeroPress - A Versatile Espresso Maker
AeroPress is lightweight, portable and looks great on your kitchen counter. It brews rich, smooth cups in a flash. You can make it stronger if you wish. Just use the AeroPress original paper filters instead.
Attach the filter to your press's bottom cap and screw it onto the brewing cylinder. Place the AeroPress in your favorite mug. Add finely ground coffee to the mug and then insert the plunger into the brewing chamber. After letting the coffee steep for a while, pour the hot water over it and plunge it into your cup. This rapid process of total immersion results in a smooth, full-bodied brew that is low in acidity and bitterness.
