Great product for solo or fussy coffee drinkers who don't want an entire pot.

There are times when you don't want to make a whole pot of coffee, or just want a quick cup or mug of coffee on the run. This is absolutely ideal for precisely that purpose. Easy to keep clean, efficient and with a quick transfer between water, coffee grounds and cup or mug. Half full this will fill an ordinary coffee cup, or completely full for a mug. You can make the coffee as strong as you want with one spoon for average tastes and more if you like it stronger. So, paper filter, ground coffee and boiling water. It's almost like instant coffee, but it tastes a hell of a lot better. My mother always had one of these in her kitchen when I was younger, but it met an untimely and unfortunate demise under the foot of a builder. It's taken years before we found another one here on Amazon - none of the stores on our rock stock them for some reason. It's perfect for a quick good tasting coffee whether at home alone, or in the office - and the best thing is that every cup you make is fresh. No going stale on the hotplate of the machine, no manky flavour from sitting around for half a day, just good hot fresh coffee every time - and it fits in a decent sized lunch box too so ideal for the office as well as home. Now that we have one again, we won't be relying on instant coffee for a quickie ever again.
