I have a small, inexpensive Bodum French Press that I sometimes use to brew a richer cup for myself, but most of my non-coffeegeek friends don't care for the grounds/sediment that ends up in the mug. I know that the French Press is a proven method, and I intend to offer a small selection in my shop, but I am wondering about any other simple, less-muddy home-brewing methods to recommend to my customers. More specifically, I am curious about the Aeropress and the Bialetti-style moka pot. I understand the Bialetti Brikka will almost make espresso, while the other moka pots make what amounts to Turkish. Which do you prefer? How do they compare, flavor-sediment-crema-wise? Which is the simplest? Which is cost-effective to stock in a store? Favorite models and online shopping suggestions would also be appreciated.
