This is so easy!!
Have you seen the new coffeemakers that brew single-servings of coffee using a little pod?
I like them–BUT the coffee pods are so pricey–that’s the main reason I haven’t purchased one!!
Another reason I’ve not made the plunge is because I get mixed reviews on them. It seems people like the convenience, BUT say that they don’t like all the flavors in the pre-made coffee pods.
We also tried a French Press and we like it, but since we live in the country and have a septic tank I don’t feel comfortable rinsing the grinds down the sink. If the grounds cannot be rinsed down the sink, I think it’s a bit of a pain to clean.
I’ve found a solution for making a single-serving of coffee for at home or away from home and it’s very easy!!
To make these, you’ll need the regular coffee making supplies–plus dental floss or upholstery thread.
To make the single-serving bag:
- Put one coffee filter (I use the small ones) into the bottom of a small measuring cup.
- Add 1-2 tablespoons of your favorite fresh coffee grounds to the filter.
- Use dental floss or upholstery thread to tie up the paper filter and tie the string into a knot.
- If the filter is large, trim the filter down to about an inch past the tie.
- If you make several of these, they can be stored in a canning jar or if you want them to be portable, put them in a small zipper-seal bag.
To make a single-serving of coffee:
- Place one in a coffee cup and cover with boiling water; brew for several minutes.
- Remove the coffee bag before serving.
Easy peasy! Just like brewing a cup of tea!!
Perfect for camping or traveling!!
