#4  French press

This is a low-tech, portable brewing method, and it’s extremely popular, based on the variety of available brands. Simply pour hot water over coarse-ground coffee and let it steep for three to four minutes before pressing down the filter and serving.


Pros: Easy to make; suitable for large groups; you control the brew time, and hence the taste.

Cons: You need to monitor the time; you can end up with sludge in the cup.
