I'm a dark roast kind of guy. Give me the dark roast beans from Costco, freshly ground on a burr grinder and then just brewed in my little cuisinart drip machine. Does the trick.
To my taste, the freshly ground part is the key to the whole thing.
But since I pretty much trust Ryan's judgement on all things brewing, I'm going to have to give his technique a try.
