Classification: UNCLASSIFIED Does anyone know off hand if Sweet Marias will send to an FPO/APO... I have deciced to go the French Press route, my access to a coffee pot has been sporadic at best - and I am going nuts. Thinking about the stainless steel version they sell, I can get a hot water pot here that runs on 220 and toss that when I leave, but the Press will be good for future deployments AND at home...

I was about to reply if any "vendor" would go the extra step and fill out the custom form for military PO mailing it'd be Tom & Maria when you answered yourself!

Classification: UNCLASSIFIED The SwissGold One Cup Coffee Brewer KF-300 Actually - this little guy seems perfect for my needs here - does anyone have experience with it? Maj. Sean M.

It's a winner.
Classification: UNCLASSIFIED Ordered - now I wait... Mail gets here quicker then Fallujah, my old digs, no helos involved and I am right next to BIAP - Baghdad International. At this time, I am AWASH in coffee (via the Marsch's 500lb package!), my lack of being able to brew here, as well as being new at this command and working as a "JOCass" on the Joint Ops Center floor have limited my potential for distro (and I work at night - so most of the folks are pleasantly sleeping while I toil away making Power Point presentations...) I have two packages enroute from Fallujah, and my buddy there said one was from Illinois and smelled like coffee...so I guess I will have more soon! I am still in the tent, no storage or place to spread out, so I will ask that packages not be sent. I will figure out a distro here, I sit in front of the PAO folks, and they are good at that sort of thing! Thanks again all! Sean Maj. Sean M.

Yes. I use it a lot to make decaf for my wife. Two things I do to improve performance. (1) I stuck a wooden coffee stirrer under the lip of the plastic insert so it sits higher above the swissgold filter. That way if you have ultrafresh coffee and it blooms the holes won't get clogged. (2) Wet the grinds in the swissgold filter with a few drops of water first before putting the plastic insert in place and filling with water. That also ensures that there won't be clogging. It's a little easier to clean than a french press, but a little harder to clean than a melitta type pourover with paper filter. Most of us here go for taste rather than convenience so I use a french press. Of course you can get one of each type to see which you prefer or just to alternate for different moods. MichaekB

It keeps the heat inside really well (maybe you don't want that in Bahdad ;) ) and it makes a really clean cup of coffee. I think it makes a better cup of coffee than a French Press or a paper filter and is easier to clean to boot. I've been raving about it so much I've convinced three friends to buy one. Cheers, -Paul

I use mine at least 2-3 times a day at work to keep a supply of delicious decaf available in between phone calls. It's so easy. Just wipe it out with a paper towel. Just find the best grind time and taste-wise. It's works so well. Take care, Ann
Sean: I like it so much I keep a couple on hand to give away. When someone says "I love coffee, but only drink a cup or two a day...." I tell them there are two things to keep in mind: 1. the coffee may blume causing the holes in the insert to plug up. If you notice the water level is not going down, lift the insert about an eighth of an inch and the water will start to flow again. 2. if you forget to put the insert in, the coffee will run down the outside of the cup....don't ask how I know that.
