Positive Product Points

Hey you slap a melitta single cup filter in, measure your coffee and pour the boiling water. Presto; one cup of coffee. I lkie to fill it one third full with boiling water to get all the grinds wet, then fill the filter all the way up with more boiling water for a medium sized cup of coffee. When it's done dripping, take the paper filter out and throw it away.

Negative Product Points

When full with hot boiling water the plastic filter holder can be top heavy and tip over causing a mess. The Melitta one cup paper filter are a little expensive

Detailed Commentary

You can make a custom cup of coffee every time.  My wife doesn't like using the expensive melitta filters so she uses the cheaper Mr Coffee filters. I don't like them because you have to fold them to fit the plastic holder. One slip and you have grinds in your coffee and on the counter as well. I like annoying my wife and using the more expensive filters.

I drink my coffee from a medium sized cup all the time for a consistent brew. I also use the same measuring scoop every time. If my nighbor comes over, He likes a large mug for his coffee so I add a little more grinds for his cup.

After using it just remove the filter and grinds and rinse the filter holder out and make your next cup or don't rinse it if you prefer the character. Needless to say my wife doesn't prefer the character.

My kids like to buy fruit and herbal flavored coffee and I can smell and taste their coffee in mine which I don't like so I bought a blue filter holder for everyone elses coffee, mine's black. DO NOT TOUCH!

Melitta makes different size filters and filter holders for 2, 4, 6 and 8 cups plus different size pots and kits.

My first plastic filterholder lasted 20 years and still worked even though it was cracked and chipped from the usual abuse until our dog captured it and didn't use it for making coffee.

Buying Experience

Just order at www.melitta.com or shop them at your local supermarket. I ordered my last set at Malitta. It was is always good buying experience.

Three Month Followup

I've been using this product for the last 30 years with Columbian fresh ground Aribica beans. I prefer it above all coffees. I can Make one, two or ten cups with the different size Melitta Filter sets. I prefer pot boiled water from the stove rather than the coil heated (from the Mr Coffee type machines) water that leaves a funny taste in my mouth. It's quick, simple and makes a great cup of coffee.
Thanks Melitta!
