they are easy and quick.... Nuke some water put the coffee in then pour the hot water in then the press top. let the coffee brew a bit then the press part pushes the grounds down to the bottom.
But really how ever you like to brew it ..... doesnt matter. the press takes up about the same space as a coffee mug in the cupboard. thats why I like them.
I actually like Starbucks ... but I just get their espresso. I am in the city right now for the time being so I get four shots of Espresso at a local shop not Starbucks. Line is shorter and they know me...
