Back in August I got a Mr. Coffee timer pot that makes one cup of coffee. I also got a 24oz cup to go with it (that's the one cup).

I have one of those reusable filters and buy my coffee from a local roaster.

I promise it's worth the trouble.

thank you, 40, verrry interesting. somehow, i managed to miss this great chemex thread of yours the first time around--but it has been updated today. when i got my keurig coffee machine, i threw away all concerns and concepts related to coffee filters, messy coffee grounds, and such, yess!

but 40, i have added this experiment of yours onto my bucket list. i think i can do it if i play and follow andy's intelligentcia link, pretend it's beer i'm brewing....

My granddaughter's favorite breakfast. To this day she still has it every morning. And so do her three kids.
