Your ideal cup...
I'll answer both...

I use an Aeropress most of the time (I'm the only coffee drinker in the house) which I find gives good results and gives ultimate control over all the variables while introducing some of it's own. (If you can't tell by now, I'm a bit scientific about this and I like to keep notes of my tasting and how I brewed that cup. I label all my jarred roasts so I can refer back to roasting notes while tasting.)

I have an 8 cup vacuum pot for crowds or times when I want more than a few cups or when I want to try a roast a different way.

I have a Handpresso, which I haven't been too successful with, it was a gift and I got the intense portafilter myself, but I think I grind too fine when using it because my draw is REALLY slow no matter which portafilter I use, but when I grind any coarser it draws really fast and thin.

I have not tried my home roasted coffee through my drip machine that I used to brew store bought coffee.

Side note, another gift, the Zassenhaus Turkish mill works great for my frequent travel. I take the Aeropress and the the mill and a jar of beans in a little bag and I just have to find hot water. If I bring a bottle of water I just need a microwave. It beats pre-grinding or drinking bought coffee. :I'm spoiled now:

I don't have a photo, but my favorite cup is very new, my wife just bought me a mug with a photo of our son and a picture of the two of them togethe on it. It's white, so I can see the color of the coffee (our regular mugs are brown inside blue outside) It's 15 oz.
I don't have a fav. Technivorm is the daily brew. But pour-over is the best. Chemex 6-cup and Hario for single mug. I have been doing very well with a Bialetti, 3 different sizes, and I have been experimenting with percolators. The La Pavoni lever machine comes out once in a while.

Of note, a 1910 Manning-Bowman alcohol chafing dish stove and a matching 64 oz 1910 Manning-Bowman percolator made an excellent cup on the camping trip. About 10 coffee drinkers shared Royal Coffee Company Ethiopian gotten recently from the bulk buy notice. The alcohol stove could simmer well enough to slowly brew a fine elixir, once I got the amount and grind right.

Like I said, I don't have a fav, just the one in front of me.
