How To Make Good Coffee

My fluff post for the week, but also a serious question. I used to think that dumping the coffee grounds into boiling water and then waiting a while made the best coffee. My grandmother made her coffee like that.

Now I think it's the whatever-it-is-called which presses the water through the beans. In any case, I've had it with the machines which use filters, because every single one is incontinent around the pouring beak and I have a kitchen covered with coffee stains now. It doesn't matter how expensive a machine I buy; it still leaks. Neither do they keep the coffee hot.

So how do you make coffee if you do?
