Easy to brew and super consistent, the French Press is very reliable. Its classic and well-engineered design hasn't changed much since its invention in 1929, and it's perfect for making multiple cups of heavy-bodied coffee in 4 minutes.
The ritual of the pour over is like a meditation: There's no machine in your way, no flashing green lights, no electric power cords. Just you and a few simple tools. The final cup is reminiscent of one from a drip coffeemaker, but noticeably more delicate and complex.
Brewing great espresso may take a little practice to master, and will definitely take some experimentation, which is all part of the fun. Grind, weight and time are key factors when brewing espresso, and most likely you'll have to adjust one or more of these elements several times to get your shot dialed in.
