Brewing a perfect mug of single serve coffee
couldn't be easier.
You don't need a big expensive machine
and those costly coffee pods.
Those pod machines are like a microwave,
big space hogs that may be quick and
convenient but ultimately not giving you
the best coffee.
The ritual of slowly brewing fresh coffee
is a great way to start your morning.
No hitting a button on a machine.
In just a few minutes you can brew
a mug of rich, flavorful coffee.
The "pour-over" method is incredibly easy
giving you one great cup of coffee.
Anytime you want.
a cone coffee dripper
(less than $4)
your favorite coffee
(Of course grinding your own is best)
All you need to do is grab your favorite mug.
I rotate my mugs seasonally. It's a cheery,
fun welcome to the day.
Bring water to a boil. I love my electric
water kettle, but you could also micro
2 C of water.
Place the coffee filter in
the cone and put on top of your mug. Pour
a little of the hot water into the empty
filter to saturate the paper. This also
warms the mug which is nice. Swirl the
hot water in the mug and pour it out.
Don't forget that.
Add 2 level scoops of coffee to the filter.
Another plus with this method is you can
adjust the coffee to your liking.
Slowly pour a little
water over the grounds to moisten.
Then slowly pour the water into
Let drip through and add more water
if needed. Slowly pouring into the center
until your mug is filled to your liking.
I fill mine about ¾ full
so there's room to add frothed milk.
It's environmentally friendly too,
just toss the used filter and
rinse the cone or put it in the DW.
This is great for travel.
I bring the plastic cone, filters, and
coffee on road trips. It's also good when
I'm visiting non coffee drinkers. I can easily
make a cup of single serve coffee myself.
The clear Melitta cone at the top pictures
is one I've had for probably over 30 years.
I just bought the new brown one for travel.
