  1. Instant coffee would be the simplest and quickest, especially if you don’t care about taste or method. You can have a cup as quickly as it takes you to heat the water to your preferred drinking temperature.
    Non-instant? A Keurig or equivalent capsule machine makes coffee very quickly.

  2. Take a cup of last night’s coffee and nuke it for 45 seconds, more or less depending on your microwave. It will even taste at least 1/2 decent, as long as it was 3/4 decent last night.
    If that’s not good enough or you don’t have leftover coffee, get an automatic coffee pot, set it up before you go to bed and have it timed to brew just before you plan to get up. 0 wait time at all if you get it right.
    Final thought – if you do not care what it tastes like, have you thought of instant?

  3. Honestly I think the quickest is manual drip. Get the smallest Melitta pot you can find. Two to 4 tablespoons of coffee, dump boiling water in, and wait about 40 seconds for a cup to drip through. The longest part of the operation is boiling the water.
    If you buy a GOOD countertop espresso machine, and leave it on at night, it should give you an espresso in about 30 seconds.
    An Aeropress is probably as quick as a drip or an espresso. Again the longest time is boiling the water.

  4. Since you didn’t say cheap, this would be as easy as it gets – and probably still cheaper than a Keurig since you don’t have to pay $30/lb for K cups.

    To brew coffee
    1. Push the button on the grinder for a few seconds.
    2. Dump the grounds into the filter and set it on your cup
    3. Pour hot water over the grounds into the cup
    Dump the grounds in the trash and swish under water and you’re ready to go again. Depending on the beans you buy this could also be one of the tastiest cups of coffee you can brew.

  5. Cold brew.
    Infusing your ground coffee beans with a particular ratio of water (1 part coffee, 4 parts water) overnight (you can batch a week’s worth), then you filter the coffee through paper filters or non-reactive fine strainers and store in a sealable container.
    When you need coffee, you pour an amount of the concentrate into a mug, and fill the rest with hot water.
    This way you’ve still controlled extraction, but cut out the process of brewing to order. Cold brew is great as you get longer infusion times, while restricting bitter flavours from entering the brew, as there is no heat, which can help to to over-extract. Water justs acts as a solvent and infuses the coffee oils to water.
    How to make Cold Brew Coffee | Mike Cooper
    I recommend sourcing your beans (filter roast) from a reputable (and ethical) supplier and have them pre-ground on their grinder (assuming its good). Then you can use the whole bag right away. Also use a blended coffee, not a single origin. This will give you a greater variety of flavour, and will perform better in this method. Use the best water you can- cleanest tasting.
    If this is not your scene check out French Press.
    You can brew it while you’re getting ready in the morning. Also take a insulated canister (preheated with leftover hot water) to drink the rest on the go. Just get a kitchen Timer to prompt you to press once its brewed. And instead of weighing on a scale (if that’s to fussy) just get a small vessel that fits in roughly the amount you need and you can scoop the same amount of pre-ground coffee each time for consistent results.

    If also to fussy I reccomend Tea. The flavour will be better than a rushed coffee. But I know you can achieve a good cup with a quick method!

  6. As much as it hurts my coffee-loving soul to write this…
    Buy a jar of Taster’s Choice French Roast. Run the hot water in your sink until it is hot as you can get it…probably 130–140 degrees if your house or apartment is like most places.
    Fill a mug or cup with the water, put in one or two tablespoons of the coffee crystals, stir and drink.
    That is all you have to do. The temperature of the coffee will be about r…

  7. Get a cheap blade grinder, something like Cuisinart DCG-20N Coffee Bar Coffee Grinder, White . And a single cup coffee dripper: HIC Coffee Filter Cone, Black, Number 2-Size Filter, Brews 2 to 6-Cups plus a few #2 paper filters (can find them everywhere, Trader Joe’s is the cheapest. Or get one of these, no paper filter needed Pour Over Coffee Dripper, Stainless Steel Reusable Permanent Drip Coffee Filter for Chemex Carafe or Single Cup: Kitchen & Dining (I like the paper filters, less messy to clean up)
    In the morning, put a spoonful of fresh coffee beans in the grinder, a quick 5–10 seconds whiz to pulverize them (you can change the flavor a bit by changing how coarse/fine the coffee is), pour the ground coffee in the filter, put the filter on top of a mug, and add hot/boiling water. 1 minute later you have a great cup of coffee. Cheap (unlike proprietary systems like Keurig), and with no plastic to dispose of. The paper filter and ground coffee can go into the compost (or your garbage), quick rinse and you are done. Doesn’t take up a lot of space like a coffee machine. Can take it with you if you travel (as long as you pre-grind enough coffee, even if ground coffee loses flavor fast)
    By buying different fresh beans you can also change flavor.
    The best part? if you buy decent beans, you will actually have a gourmet coffee, even if that’s not your goal 🙂 And you’ll have a wonderful taste (even if you try not to), as long as your beans are not total garbage (if you really insist on non-gourmet, poorly tasting coffee, buy the crappiest, oldest beans you can find and grind them a week ahead of using them… you should get a pretty bad cup that way)
