How do you brew coffee?

I found a thread but it's the old one
Coffee ... How Do You Drink It?
I am asking about the ways of brewing. As for me, I got used to my Turkish coffee brewing pot, and that's my morning ritual. Nut my friends advised me to try one of these https://www.coffee-statistics.com/best-moka-pot
So I'd like to know. How the process of brewing affects the taste? If that's just a cup of coffee for you, does the fact that you made it manually makes it more tasteful? It is probably a strange question, but still...

We have two coffee makers. A cuisinart drip and a Keuring. We use the drip most days and I brew enough for two cups each for my SO and me. The Keurig is for quick cups of coffee/tea/hot water when brewing a whole pot is impractical.

We use dark roast coffees.

I use either a Mueller French Press or make pour-over with a Kalita Wave.

We are on our 3rd Keurig coffee machine since they first came out. We each drink two cups every morning and I like mine with light fresh cream. I actually like French pressed coffee the best, but I don't want to mess with it when I'm hardly awake.

That is a really pretty French press. Also, it's not made of glass. I have broken quite a few French presses.

Those are moka pots. They won't make Turkish coffee. They can make very good coffee that is similar to espresso. I like both types of coffee. I think the moka pot is easier to use, but I have never made Turkish coffee. I have watched a friend make it, many times.

My go to coffee is made with my Italian espresso machine. I drink it over ice or allongé. I don't bother getting the hot water to elongate my espresso from the machine, I use an electric kettle.

When the power goes out, I use my Bialetti moka pot. It makes excellent coffee, but takes more watching than the espresso machine.

I also have Melitta cones to make pour over coffee. I have a French press from Bodum. We also have a 10 pot coffee maker that uses a basket to hold the ground coffee. We used to have an electric percolator, but I'm not fond of the coffee those make, so we donated it.

I was once invited to supper on a Polish ship. The coffee was surprisingly good and made by a very simple method. Course grounds were put in each cup and then hot water was added. You add any cream and sugar and then wait for the grounds to settle.

We also use the Mueller French Press. We have 3 sizes depending on the occasion, from a singe cup version to a large sized press which yields at least 7 or 8 cups, I think... The single cup version is very cute, according to my wife.

I use a simple pour over after years of complicated and expensive pots. Cheap, easy, nothing to break - makes great coffee.

Souschef gave me a Sunday surprise, by making me French pressed coffee this morning. I didn't even know he had read this thread. He found the pot in the garage, and went to Starbucks to get some advice along with a pound of fresh ground coffee. When he brought me my first cup, I knew right away that it was French pressed. Oh my...I'm spoiled rotten.

I have an espresso maker (you can buy one from Amazon for 60 bucks) and I have it set to make Caffè Americanos. After that, regular coffee out of a coffeemaker tastes lousy.

When making it at home, on the rare occasions we do, French Press. Most of those occasions are for Irish Coffee.

We just use a regular Cuisinart coffeemaker. I wanted to take this opportunity to let Kayelle know that I copied her idea of using his & hers Polish pottery coffee cups on Sunday morning. Our last name ends with -ski, so it's perfect

I've gone retro, plain old instant coffee made in the microwave one cup at a time.
