The other one cup coffee maker – an inexpensive Manual Drip Coffee Filter Cone.

Of course, the “other one cup coffee maker” has been around for a long time and costs just a few dollars.

It’s a simple cone made from plastic or glass, and fits snuggly over the top of a single mug, or a glass carafe.

You put the cone on the mug, place a filter in the cone, add the ground coffee and then pour hot water over the coffee.

It’s a system that’s almost ridiculously simple, and effective. One wonders why there is a need for some fancy, high-tech pod brewer when this five-dollar cone will do the same job.

You can buy cones that take paper filters or, if you prefer, a cone with a metal filter. The metal filter cone does just the same job, and is a little more expensive, but you don’t have to buy and throw away the paper filters.

And THIS one cup coffee maker actually makes a better cup of coffee!

Here’s why:

When you pour the hot water over the coffee in a cone, you can see what you are doing and make sure that all the grinds are thoroughly soaked.

Also, you can stir the grinds and water. This not only means that you get the full brew and flavor from the grinds, but it also results in a much richer, stronger mug of coffee.

With electric drip brewers you can’t do that, as you have no access to the coffee during the brewing process.

There’s one other important advantage to using a filter cone instead of a an electronic one cup coffee maker...

With a filter cone you can go out and buy any coffee beans you want. With a K-Cup or Pod brewer, you are confined to the choice of beans and blends that are available for use with that particular brand.

You have choices when it comes to a one cup copy maker...

1. You can use all-new, hi-tech K-Cup or Pod brewer.

2. You can use a French Press.

3. Or you can use a filter cone drip brewer. (External link to Amazon.com)

The choice is yours. But it’s good to be informed about what you really need and want. And then make a choice you won’t regret.
