I use Folgers coffee bags. Not great but infinitely better than instant, which I simply cannot get down.  For shabbos I make do with this (I'm not a posek but no reason these should differ from tea bags). For Y"T I percolate using a melitta plastic cone (approved for Y"T by my LOR).
Rombouts singles are also good for Y"T.  Not as good as fresh percolated but pretty decent and less of a hassle.  I've seen them in many kosher supermarkets.

It doesn't quite have the same satisfaction as a hot cup of coffee when you wake up.
You can make a concentrated version and mix it with hot water. The flavor is much better than any other hot beverage you can make on Shabbos, IMO.

There's a coffee shop in lakewood, forgot the name, that makes bottles of highly concentrated coffee. Really good stuff.

The French Press. Mentioned upthread. That's what I'm talking about.
Very easy to make yourself.

They have a very intricate machine that they use.

Not all hold this way. Coffee is also a bit different in that it has already been roasted.
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

Which is completely unnecessary for making it at home.
All you need is a mason jar.

I used to drink that concentrate straight up before second seder.
You can get it over ice with heavy cream, it's called a dark night.

I didn't say all hold.
Wouldn't roasting be tzli and this would be bishul?

and then you use it like a tea essence? If not, how do you drink it hot?
