French press is my favorite (though I am by no means a well seasoned expert). It is pretty much a pitcher and a plunger so you cam make any amount of coffee as long as it fits just know your preferred ratio. I like 1:16 or 1:17.
As for a grinder most people here say plan to spend about $100 for a good one. I was looking at the hario skerton but found this one that looks pretty close to identical, it comes with the added upgrade stabilizer and it is just over $20. I figured I'd save my money to get a really good one later. I would also recommend a scale to weigh your coffee and water.

Been using my Gaggia classic for about 2 months now, took a while to get it down but I love it now that I have my grinder dialed in.
Speaking of grinders, I never realized they were just as expensive as the brewers. I'm using a hand grinder my friend recommended years ago when I got my first french press, it seems to work really well for espresso. Eventually I'll be able to buy a real grinder.
Edit: Found my grinder on my amazon history. It has a few shortcomings (grind size is awkward to adjust because of the way the screw is set) but it works pretty consistently after dialing it in as I said above.
Yep ! Or get one of these grinders

I plan on putting my dried Reapers in an old empty sea salt grinder however.
Amazon is full of them. here is the one I bought.
Is this the 25 skerton you're referring to?
I just ask because this is the one that I've been mostly seeing.
What's the difference? Is the $15 worth the extra?
