My daughter's outlaws are really into the coffee brewing business by grinding cup by cup....and I admit when I'm in San Francisco I feel positively spoiled as Peet's is their favorite.........sigh.......I wish they were here now............:(

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.

Thanks everyone..
We don't have those individual containers here.
So the Keurig will not work.

Having tried various methods of making a single cup of coffee I have come down on the side of a individual "plunger" coffee pot. The knack is not to use absolutely boiling water - give it a few seconds to come off the boil as boiling water effectively burns the coffee and spoils the flavour (effectively this is what various drip methods do).

I have the shape of electric kettle that will work with just one mugful of water so not wasteful.

The plunger method produces less waste than methods which involve pre-packed capsules. I can put my loose coffee grounds in the compost bin but the capsules have to go in landfill or be burned - neither of which are good for the environment.

Don’t look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.
