Brew really good coffee at home?

For my money, the only way to brew really good coffee is to use a coffee press (see photo), sometimes called a French press. It’s simplicity in itself.  Be sure to use regular grind — not drip grind.  I normally put two-three scoops for every cup of coffee.  Heat clean water and once it boils, pour smoothly into the coffee press.  Stir with about 30 strokes (I use a whisk).  Then, insert the press but do not press immediately.  Let the coffee steep for about half a minute before pressing and then pouring.  My wife and I normally take coffee with muscovado, which is raw brown sugar.
