Easy to make good coffee anywhere.,
This review is from: SwissGold Coffee Filter - one cup, reusable - KF300
It is such a simple product yet I did have some fun working out how to get the best from it. I use a finely ground coffee (to be honest, I haven't tried anything else yet). My theory is that the finer the grind the better as there will be more surface area for the water to make contact with, therefore more flavour will be released. I have no scientific evidence for this, it is just a theory I have come up with.
I use the plastic lid from an instant coffee jar to compress the coffee in the filter before I start to pour the water through. It is kind of ironic that something from instant coffee helps the flavour of my 'real' coffee. By compressing the coffee the water filters through much slower. I believe that this makes for a better flavour. I pour the water in about an inch at a time. I find this works better than filling the filter in one go. Once again, I have no scientific evidence for this, it just feels right. I find it quite therapeutic to spend just a couple of minutes thinking of nothing else but how to make the best coffee I can. The only thing that tops that is drinking the results!
Washing up is stupidly simple. Once you have mastered this filter you will never want to drink an instant coffee again.
