I've used those Monmouth beans as well, very nice they are too

I love Look Mum No Hands but there coffee is good but not that good. I am a big fan of Flat White and Kaffiene though as well.

As for 'proper' coffee we have a filter machine and I am partial to a cup of Douwe Egberts but there's no room for it in the kitchen so back to jars of crap.
Also, I'll never forget when on my mates stag weekend I went to Costa (couldn't find a 'Bucks) and ordered a double ristretto. I was awake for a couple of days after that.
All coffee should be served black, no sugar.

However I would advise getting yourself a really good hand grinder too. It doesn't matter how good your coffee kit is if the grind is crap.
I'd recommend the Hario Ceramic grinder.
