I french press my coffee. Takes 4-5 minutes once the water is boiling and I pour it over the coffee.

Also, Keurig, marginally longer, since I use a refillable K Cup and my own coffee blends. I get superior coffee, that way too, for a lot less.

Today, I'm drinking Parry Estate Blue Mountain Coffee, grown in Kona rather than Jamaica. The Volcanic soil actually makes the Blue Mountain beans taste better.......something I didn't think was possible.

That sounds bombastic... I wasn't aware those machines could use self filled cartridges I may need to look into that. Mmm coffee to distract me while the temp goes up a couple degrees before my ride!
