i need something VERY easy while sitting at my desk.. and am really tired of crappy office coffee (its either brown water drip pots, or keurig cups). anything that requires cleaning of glass, containers, etc is out, so i cant bring my french press in. :( is there anything really simple, like maybe just throwing a gold tone filter on top of a cup and pouring water over it? then i can dump the filter of the grinds, and rinse or wipe the mess with a wet paper towel till im home to clean it. the filter over a cup thing seems sort of archaic, but would it work? is there anything else that can make coffee 'on the go'? a little travel mug with a grinds chamber up top would be an awesome idea, if it doesnt exist.. you can shake it or push them through, and the grinds stay in a chamber and can be removed and dumped, so all you have to rinse is a travel mug type thing. much easier in my work environment.. any ideas everyone? thanks!
I use a swiss gold one cup pour over at work. We have a hot water tap on some of our drinking fountains as well as the Bunn coffee makers. The Bunns tend to not be hot enough. I simply take my filter into the bathroom and rinse the grounds out and down the drain. There isn't enough grinds to cause plumbing problems. Wes On 8/14/06, Leo Zick wrote: <Snip>

I use a Melitta #2 drip cone directly into my coffee cup with a paper filter in it. I know many of you disparage the use of paper filters, it does make cleanup incredibly simple in a non-water environment. The paper and grounds can go directly in the trash can, and the cone is ready for re-use. When I worked in an office I also had a $10 hot water pot. It could get me boiling water in about 2-3 minutes. This setup coupled with a cheap grinder worked very well in my office, and generated a steady stream of co-workers stopping by to see what that wonderful smell was. Dave McCracken
