Get yourself a one-cup stove-top espresso pot or a caffetiere and some proper grounds
Does it bring the beans to life?
You really don't need to get as poncy as some of the posters above are suggesting.
Don't get cheap instant, it's properly grim. But you don't need to be hand grinding your home-grown beans and mixing them in a fairtrade mung bean and knitted yoghurt Aga top pot.
If you want really easy then get some posh instant stuff (Nescafe Azera is nice) and drink it with a lot of sugar in it. Then try with less sugar. No milk though, coffee with milk is horrible!
Or just get a cafetiere and some ground coffee from a supermarket. Sainsbury's do some nice ones, I think their 'breakfast' one is one that (I thought) was surprisingly delicious.
If you end up loving it then sure, get all fancy, but you don't need all that just to have a cup of coffee.
Same as your tea, you probably just put a PG tips bag in some water, chuck in a bit of milk and drink it. If you use organic, hand reared, loose leaf tea and strain it through an artisan Mongolian tea strainer then you might want all the fancy coffee kit too, but it's really not necessary.
