This is great. I use it most week days for a single cup, because it's quick and easy and can make a great cup of coffee if you do a little homework and trial and error. We make a big pot in our coffee press on weekends, but that is too time consuming for days I have to get to work. You can brew this right in your travel mug too, so very convenient. I've been using it over a year now, and it is not showing any signs of wear. I gently hand wash it mostly, but run it through the dishwasher a couple times a month. This has a wide rim, so will fit your big, oversized mugs too. My typical brew: add grounds (med-fine) to filter, bring water to a boil then let it cool for 45 seconds, pour over coffee slowly until you are at the desired water level in your cup, let steep 3 & 1/2 min, using last 30 sec to gently give the grounds in the filter a stir and lift to sift water through a few times. Then remove filter and enjoy. Play with your grind level to see how fine you like it. I wouldn't go to the finest level, as you will get a thicker layer of silt, but it can handle a fairly fine grind like a champ.
Love this! I picked one up before going on a three week trip to New Zealand that included a number of nights in camping huts and hostels. I usually use a french press but tried the Brew Buddy in order to save weight and space. It is just so easy to use, clean and makes a great cup of coffee. I used both as described by putting it over the cup I would drink out of but also used it by steeping the coffee in a separate container then using the Brew Buddy to filter out the grounds into a coffee mug. Many of the hostels had instant hot water in their kitchens which meant a hot cup of coffee in under five minutes.I now often use this at home when I want just a single cup/mug of coffee. You will need to experiment a bit to figure out the best mix of amount of grounds and time to match your tastes but that's the same with any coffee maker.A few things to be aware of, none of which reduce the rating in my opinion: You need to fill your cup/mug all the way up with hot water. If you have a twelve ounce mug, you can't make just eight ounces since the filter bag won't hang down into the water. Also if you want to make a large amount - say 16 to 20+ ounces, using a wide & short container like a pyrex measuring glass works better than a tall & thin travel mug. Finally, a clear cup/mug makes pouring the right amount of water easier to see but it was really no problem to fill the water in several pours and check the level between each one.And these are so inexpensive I had bought two of them. That ended up being a smart move since I left one behind at a hut on the way to Milford Sound. I hope whoever picked it up realized how useful it is for the rest of their hike.
Bought one for myself and one for my sister. I have only recently started drinking coffee, and as I'm really only a one-cup-of-coffee-a-day kind of person, having a coffee machine doesn't make any sense. This single-serve brew filter is amazing! It's so much easier than using a regular paper filter. My sister has been a pour-over brewer for years, using paper filters, and when I gave her this filter, she told me it has "revolutionized her life." Yeah, my sister is a little dramatic, but needless to say, she loves this thing, too. Easy to hand wash, and fits almost any cup. This is well worth the little money you have to pay for a dramatically easier and faster pour-over brewing experience.
So my husband and I don’t drink coffee, but my parents and brother love coffee. We never wanted to get a coffee maker for one or two times a year. We got a French Press at first, and everyone likes the coffee it makes. Now last year they came and we used the French Press and they liked it, but I noticed it seemed like a pretty tedious process for just two people wanting coffee. I got online and started looking for alternative ideas. I found these little gems and thought, at the price, how could I go wrong. My parents came over for Thanksgiving this last week, and they loved these! My mom kept making more coffee for herself. She went on and on about how good the coffee was with them. She even got two for my brother and his wife this year for Christmas! All in all a great purchase and totally worth it.
I absolutely love the ease of use of this product. You just can't go wrong for the price. This will make the most simple cup of pour over coffee you will ever have. Easy clean up. I keep one at my work desk; one in the kitchen; one in the camper (actually I think there are two in the camper); one in my car; I've given 3 away as gifts to friends who admire them; I have one in my travel bag; one in my emergency bag; and a couple spares in case more friends express admiration. NOT ONE has failed as of yet. All the netting is still in tact and I've used most of mine for over 2 years - every single day. I got rid of my Keurig once I was convinced these would work.
I have a Hamilton Beach single serve coffee maker that I've never quite gotten to make a dark brew (just use it for making hot water now since I have no microwave). Got this to see if I could get a darker cup and it works for that purpose. It takes a few minutes with my coffee maker water to get there and it's a bit harder to get powder creamer to dissolve because of that (again, I have no microwave). I'm sure I could solve that by using actual boiling stove-heated water, but just haven't tried it out yet. Will update if I do and it doesn't work.Other than that, no grounds in the coffee afterwards and this fits my wide variety of cups. Used it about a dozen times so far and it seems to be holding up well.
