I boil water in a kettle and pour the hot water to the fill line in the bottom piece.
That is correct right?

No. Pour room temp water into the bottom piece until it reaches right below the pressure valve. Then place coffee grounds and top and place on stovetop on low-med heat.

We brew coffee right on the stove with this pot, simple but still great, bought it in Turkey)

The only thing is everybody is telling to buy a manual grinder, and I have no idea which one is better. If you have any experience with these ones, I'd appreciate that!

Very cool. I’m always intrigued by coffee brewing methods from around the world.

Can you guys recommend a good burr grinder that won’t break the bank. Also, some good coffee to try? I’m very interested in trying this as an alternative to my standard coffee pot when I don’t need to make a cup quickly.

I have the Bodum Bistro grinder. Has served me well for quite a few years.

I go through cycles where I am hot for new grinder and start checking craigs list for fancier grinders. The fancier Rancilio and Mazer go for a nice discount used. The good grinders are truly life time machines. I have had my Rancilio Rocky 25 years and still works like a trooper. Burrs easy to clean and take apart. Only reason I am looking at a Mazer Major is that'll be quicker to grind the coffee.

I bet more grinders will be for sale unfortunately due to business closures and general hardship, but you get a grinder and they get some needed cash...
