The world of coffee is expansive, and it can be expensive even if you stick to a home coffee maker instead of going to a coffee shop. But, is that expensive coffee you’re either making or buying better than a cheap cup that just gets the job done?

There are a lot of different ways to make coffee, including grinding your own beans, using a hot water drip, and using a quick one cup and brew package. The only way to actually know which one you like the best, though, is by tasting every method of coffee making. This does have to be a blind test, though, otherwise, your inherent biases are going to become involved.
