One Cup at a Time

Post by johnplctech » Sun Jan 21, 2007 8:57 am

Anyone brew one cup of coffee at a time?

My MIL does that with a cheap drip machine. It's about to die... I was looking at some filter holders that go on top of your cup and you just pour 195F water in and wait a few minutes and you have a cup of coffee...

Anyone use them?

This may or may not help. but I am going to buy something very similar to the link below at target for just one cup (the travel mug one) so I can still get the quality of pressing on the go

The beer is probably enjoyed by less people than actually like it. -Me

She would only use a 1 cup press if she did...

Hey Roger the one cup filter cone came in the other day and the MIL loved it and told me to thank you for telling me about it.

We've been using single cup Melita funnels for 27 years now. My wife and I love coffee but we generally only drink one cup in the morning and maybe another at lunch so it's by far the best way for us. Also she like almost 2 tablespoons of coffee per cup, way more than I can handle. But then she ruins it with milk and sugar.
