yes

a french press is a big jar plus some mesh on a stick. the beans/water temperature/steeping time have a lot more effect on the coffee quality than anything that different presses could change

the A team:
a kitchen aid burr grinder, a breville espresso machine, a bona vita drip coffee maker, some kind of vacuum can for beans

the B team:
3? french presses, an aeropress i've never used, a vacuum pot coffee maker, several ancient/antique percolators, one or two broken/bad drip coffee makers, probably more in storage. i think the only kind of coffee maker i dont have is a moka pot, and my wife plans on buying that for me for a birthday present probably

percolators are real bad unless you're camping or something.

it's not really espresso

it's just called that colloquially due to the fact that it is much denser and smaller quantity than drip coffee, it is brewed at pressure yes but nowhere close to true espresso

it's very, very good though. Frankly, I prefer it to true espresso if i'm just sipping a cup of pure black coffee. True espresso is more suited for a latte or americano or w/e, or desert drink served with biscotti after eating out at an italian place w/e

moka pot coffee is just really good dense coffee

yeah they don't make real espresso because the pressure that builds up is much lower. it's a different coffee but imo also perfectly enjoyable
