Nespresso! It’s not super cheap, but the coffee is way better than a Keurig and the best part for me is that the pods are recycleable!

We have a Keurig that we use on “normal” days when we want quick and easy coffee/tea/cocoa and a french press that we use when we want strong tasty deliciousness.

Definitely buy whole beans and grind them at home, it improves the flavor so much.

My mom has a Capresso Impressa. I’m pretty sure my husband would marry it if he could. He’d love one of our own but they run about 2-5 grand. We have the Capresso Expresso and Cappucino machine, it’s much smaller and simpler (and cheaper!) but still good! We’re pretty serious about our coffee lol.

ETA: We also have a french press. You can’t go wrong with some fresh ground beans and a french press.

Your coffee problem could be both your coffee maker AND the beans you’re using (case and point: I can buy awesome beans from a local shop and use them with my POS 4 cup automatic drip coffee maker and they taste mediocre).  I agree with buying whole beans to grind at home when you want to use them.

And for bang for your buck, French press.  A really quality small kitchen appliance coffee maker can/will run you $250-$300.  Ouch.

As a former barista, my 2 cents. Fresh, whole beans that you grind (preferably daily) and a french press are the way to go. Whole beans can be open (but in a sealed container) and stay fresh for a month. DO NOT FREEZE THE BEANS. Or I will come haunt you 😉 Freezing ruins the oils in the beans and oils are very important.
