Okay /ck/, post your favourite methods of making coffee in order of preference.
For me it's:
1. Greek/Turkish coffee
2. Cold Brew
4. Moka pot
Keep in mind that I've never brewed or had pour over so it is not listed. I've only had one straight espresso shot from a meh cafe.

You gotta balance flavour with ease of use. Espresso is the way to go for me. Easy and delicious. I also have an ibrik, Vietnamese coffee maker (do these have a name?), percolator and aeropress. I would never bother using any of this shit in my mornings though. Espresso is the king of morning coffee, when it's most important.
I guess if I were to rate these by how much I enjoy making coffee with them I'd rate it like this:
But for flavour:
Don't even talk to me about drip. I find it conceivable that good drip exists, but I'm done trying drip.
I run it through a pot washed with titanium blades.
Then i pour it into a mug of painstakingly-surrounded farmhouse friends.
I add some high fructose corn milk, and my day begins...
1:14 ratio for coffee:water
1. It's a tie between the arab/turkish approach and a moka pot.
I might treat myself to a decent espresso machine one day, as that's my favorite way to drink coffee, and there isn't anything that can replace the end product.
Inverted aeropress technique.
Set kettle to 195F.
Grind locally roasted beans in hand cranked burr grinder while water is heating up.
Put grounds in inverted aeropress, pour some water stir for ten seconds vigorously, let bloom for thirty seconds. Brew for total of 1m30s. Press for thirty seconds into a pre-warmed hand painted locally glazed and fired ceramic mug.
