Been using this for years. Love it, especially when camping. Nothing like a perfect coffee if in Banff mountains, Manitoba Whitesell or Ontario parks.

Makes delicious coffee! I would highly recommend for anyone making only 1-2 cups of coffee in the morning. The package also comes with a 4 compatible coffee filters for your first few brews. I purchased a reusable coffee filter on amazon for $10 for a reusable/ low waste option.

If you like your coffee fuller and faster (what she said), use an Aeropress but it's $39, not this $1 killer price. I take a Go and grinder camping.

Thanks. Finally got one after looking at this option for a while for use at work. Bought 100 Melitta #2 filters for $4.17 (lowest CCC price) to go with it.

I looked at the Aeropress too before buying this cone and the biggest thing that turned me off were the reviews that said the seal on the plunger wearing out eventually

Ultimate guide to QUALITY coffee taste on the ultimate budget. Especially if you're the type to grab a timmies or mcdonalds coffee on the way to work. I now hate the taste of Tims and McDonald's after this discovery and probably save a few hundred dollars a year on coffee.

1. Melitta pour over coffee maker
2. 100 pack #2 coffee filters for $2-4$ average
3. Cheapest mini coffee grinder you can find at walmart ie. Hamilton beach for aprox $12
4. Zavida whole bean Colombian medium roast coffee from costco (when on sale in store aprox $10 for 907 grams) or if not wanting to brave costco, costco online 2x5lb bags for $65 delivered.
5. Large portable mug of your choice (I splurged here since I'm saving so much from not buying coffee out anymore and don't regret it for a moment) Yeti Rambler 887ml (can honestly keep your coffee warm until noon at minimum if you remember to close the magnetic lid.) (Must have decent sized cupholder)
6. Save a ton of money on coffee yearly

I'd stay away from plastic or similar items for brewing/infusing as possible release of harmful odors/chemicals under boiled water.

We got David's Tea stainless steel infuser (or any trusted brand stainless steel infusers) for single coffee/tea brewing over the cup/mug/porcelain kettle for years and happy with it. You do not need cone filters, just wait brewing to your taste and recycle the coffee grounds :)

This is almost my exact setup Smiling Face With Open Mouth And Smiling Eyes

Went from being too lazy to make my own coffee and just went to Tims or McDonalds... to getting a french press and then switching to pour over.

if you buy your coffee on a daily basis - $2/day - $700+/year just on coffee

down to $10-15/month on beans since a 2lb bag lasts me a little over a month. You'd save almost $500/year if you're someone who buys their coffee elsewhere instead of making it yourself. Crazy to think about if you previously thought "well, it's just $2 a day".

I fill up a 20oz travel mug to take to work. I use about 30g of coffee. Could probably use more tbh. There are some people who use a scale and all that but nah.. I do a rough estimate and it's good enough for me

Hario has been my go to but the filters are pricey and hard to find, might try this.

I roughly aim to fill my mini grinder with beans to the rim, grind them fully and then estimate using 1/3 of the contents per cup of coffee. It isn't an exact science for me, but you just trial and error until you find the strength you most prefer. You will quickly learn to eyeball it consistently when you can see how full your filter is.

Fyi for the "wasteful" aspect, the coffee filter and used coffee grounds can just be placed directly into your green bin/ compost. Or if camping/ cottaging right into the firepit.

Couldn't you just fold most #2 filters to fit a Hario?

Exactly! I also always thought bahhh Tims and Mcdonalds is decent enough coffee, ordered with 2 milk and a sugar. Then I tried buying some ground coffee PC brand and a few others and thought it was half decent. The first time I ground the Zavida Colombian whole bean coffee and made coffee I was stunned. By the 10th time I only put a small splash of milk in because it actually tastes GOOD.

Not that this exactly correlates, but I 've been drinking coffee this way for the past 5 years. Just prior to the pandemic I went on a two week trip to Colombia with the girlfriend and went on a coffee tour in Salento. I had a chance to taste the freshest, best coffee Colombia had to offer. This trip was approximately $1800 staying in pretty nice accommodations, different towns and cities every 2nd day, and doing some kind of exploration adventure EVERY DAY. This trip was basically free from the 3 years of money I saved making coffee this way.

Let that sink in!

They can be used, but they don't give the same results as the V60 filters.

Pour overs like Melitta give more clarity and less body while french presses give more body and less clarity. Aeropress and siphon methods fall somewhere in the middle. Balanced taste is what I'm after so I'm fine replacing the plunger or just getting a new AP after a few years. And as a bonus takes <1min to make a great cup.

For us Ontarians, are these with the coffee makers (off limits) or in with the beans on one of those display hangers? Would like to go get one but I think they're prohibited. Lol.
