Single serve coffee. Seems like everyone has ‘that’ machine. Which uses ‘those’ coffee pods. The coffee pods that cost a fortune. You all know what I’m talking about!
One day, I remembered how my Mom used to make herself a cup of coffee. Now, I won’t lie to you. I did have to make a purchase from Amazon. But it wasn’t expensive! And, I’m glad I did. (Update – Now they are everywhere! You can even find these coffee drippers at coffee stores).
I have a ton of my favorite coffee. Like about 3 large tins worth. And, really didn’t want to keep two coffee makers on the counter. But, sometimes, I just have a craving for a cup of my favorite coffee.

All I needed to do was buy a coffee dripper. Yup, that’s what it’s called, a coffee dripper!! And you only need to buy it once. You do need coffee filters, but they are just the regular #2 size. You can pretty much get them in any store. But not, my beloved coffee dripper!
To make an awesome cup of coffee, just put the filter in the coffee dripper. I put a slightly heaping tablespoon of regular coffee. You will have to play with the amount for your perfect personal preference. But if you like coffee with lots of flavor but not super strong, that’s the amount : ).
Add some boiling water.
Check your cup once in a while to see if you have enough. If you have to add some more water to your coffee dripper, to fill your cup, go for it!
A perfect cup of single serve coffee! And, you can compost your coffee filter and grounds. And be super environmentally friendly (or not). The coffee dripper goes in the dishwasher. And you are good to go!
Oh, if you make a lot of tea or make coffee like this, you may want to invest in an electric kettle. LOVE mine. I saw them in London, England a couple of years ago. I came home and had to have one. Take a peek here to see my electric kettle. Oh, and if you want the coffee dripper, this one is very similar to the one I have.
Ummm, I’ve got to go now. I have an awesome cup of coffee I want to enjoy : ).
Here are some super easy recipes. To enjoy with your coffee, of course!
