Okay, I discovered this li'l beauty over at TOP. But I thought it was time to open up a discussion here about the neatest coffee invention since, well, coffee! Now, sure, there are nicer, more expensive, and "sexier" coffee makers, presses, etc. But for the price, convenience and well, fun, of this thing, it just can't be beat. If you don't have one of these, and you enjoy good coffee, you really need to get one!* Anybody else wants to chime in here, feel free. Ideas about how you use yours (do you use a kettle? microwave your water?** have a slightly different approach to the balance of water and coffee than what the instructions call for?), post 'em here! *Not a paid endorsement, nor do I personally know the inventor nor have any stake in the sales or promotion of this product! **Yeah, I know...they "say" not to microwave liquids, but many of us do it anyway.
