All of my coffee-loving friends and family are obsessed with this little gizmo, called an AeroPress. Last year my husband and I gave them as stocking stuffers to no less than 8 people, and several of those converts now refuse to travel without their coffee maker in tow. This contraption is brilliant on several fronts: it makes delicious coffee in less than 2 minutes, you can brew by the cup, it's completely analog (nothing to plug in), it's inexpensive ($25) and entirely portable (camping trips, etc). Also, you can make your coffee as strong as you like by adding more or less grounds. The low-tech mechanism is even popping up at coffee bars that take their brewing very seriously. Here's a step-by-step of how it works and some links to more information on the AeroPress and places to order.
