Topic: new Folgers commercial (3 msgs / 73 lines)
1) From: Kris Bhatti
I just saw a new Folgers commercial that actually shows something interesting, though I doubt the typical Folgers customer would pick up on it.  The commercial starts by showing a U.S. aid worker in Romania.  It looks like he's in a rural area, living in a farmhouse with locals.  A package from America arrives - hurray!  A big tub of Folgers!  Of course these simple people don't have a Mr. Coffee, so Mr. Aid Worker has to improvise.  He looks around the house and sees some cheesecloth, with actual cheese hanging in it of course.  He cuts off a piece of the cloth from the top, lines a funnel with it, puts the funnel over a glass pitcher and adds the ground coffee and water.  I'm guessing the implication is that making coffee with this crude method is a big step down from an auto-drip machine, but this is most likely the best Folgers he'll ever have.  I had never thought of using a funnel as a filter cone before, but why not?  Too bad I passed up that
 lovely glass funnel at the thrift store recently - I'm always up for a new coffee contraption.

Hmm...I'm sure the cheesy overtones will mesh nicely with the other flavors  
native to Folgers.  I'll stick with my laborious method  or HG/DG home 
roasting, resting, grinding, and brewing in my FP.  However, I believe this cheese 
cloth man is on to something if you are a  Folgers drinker....

We actually bought a set of plastic funnels to use to hold filters on a
backpacking trip a few years ago. I'd forgotten to pack the melita cone
holders. Duh. We eventually found another "official" holder, but I'm sure
the funnels would have worked.
