These guys are good

If you're just getting into freshly ground/filter stuff, I can really recommend the Hario V60 coffee dripper system.

Options for every budget, foolproof, and great if you're just making one cup.

My preferred instant is L'Or Classique.

Honestly though, using one of those V60s is no more of a ballache than making an instant.

Coaltown are excellent - we use their main blend (Black Gold #3) at the B&B. I love it

But pretty much every town will have a decent local roaster, if you're lucky they won't be too far up their own arses :)

Not seen these V60s before. Might get one, cheers.

For a fairly cheap supermarket ground coffee for a cafetiere I quite like Angry Mule

Me too. Used to have that in the old espresso maker. I’ve gone all philistine since and moved to a Nespresso Vertuo.

Ordered the v60 yesterday after the recommendation on here ready to try next week when I finish fasting.

Just need to find a decent ground coffee now.

So how do they work - do you need filter papers as well? Can you "drip" straight into a mug or cup or do you drip into a pot first? How long does it take?

Cheers in advance.

Yes, filter papers. They're about £6 for 100 on Amazon.

Drip straight into mug or cup, takes about 90 seconds. Possibly more depending on the grind of the coffee e.g. my wife's on decaff at the moment and that takes noticeably longer than usual for some reason.

OK cheers for that.

Noticeable improvement in taste from a cafetiere would you say?

My palate is not that refined. We've only got a massive 6 cup cafetiere so this stops me wasting/drinking too much coffee.
