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

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

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
