When was I last writing about my coffee pots being on the fritz? I'm at it again, the decision to buy a new coffee maker or not. I'm trying to decalcify the Keurig, but so far, not having any luck. It might truly be the tubing inside is shot. Not wanting to spend any unnecessary money right now, I'll limp along with the slow big coffee maker or for my daily cup of Joe, this little pour over hack. Pour over filter coffee, made one cup at a time is the new thing in some coffee shops and at a premium price. I have filters; I have coffee; I can hear water in the tea kettle. I decided to give it a try. Here is my simple hack of using a 12 ounce jelly jar, with the lid to secure the filter from slipping. It did the job.
I know I could go out an buy a $15 to $20 coffee maker, or buy a French press for about the same. I want to make sure though I'm not just throwing money without getting what I really want. I keep the coffee makers on my counter, so aesthetically, I want to like how it looks. I have a couple gift cards, one for Kohl's and a VISA gift card. Once I decide I can put them to use, but layered with other perks and savings. Until then, this will do for my morning cup. It is tasty.
