I am so grateful for you choosing to spend a few moments of your precious time at my site! This video shows you how to use
a single cup pourover coffee brewer called the “Ready Set Joe” that is a great way to brew a single coffee cup of decent ‘joe’ 🙂 This method is simply a plastic cone that fits above your coffee mug and holds a number 2 cone paper coffee filter. I recommend using either a gold plated permanent filter, or a natural paper filter (brown). The natural paper doesn’t contain chlorine, which replaces good flavor notes with bad. This method uses gravity to pull the hot water through the grounds and into the mug below. It takes all of about 30 seconds to brew a cup, and it is very economical at about $5. I would add this to the list of hotel coffee brewing methods, as well as how to make coffee while camping lists.
This week I ordered and received some coffee from Coffees of Hawaii. I had tried one of their coffees a few weeks back, and I liked it very much. One thing that I found interesting was that the coffee, from crop to cup, was %100 American made. There aren’t very many coffees that are grown, processed, packed, and shipped all in the USA! Coffees of Hawaii is based on the small Hawaiian island of Molokai.
The variety that I chose was the Peaberry bean Muleskinner. This is their signature coffee that is naturally dried. The term ‘Naturally Dried’ refers to the processing of the beans after the cherrys are picked from the coffee plants. Instead of the ‘washed’ method (separating the fruit from the bean prior to drying), the natural method is when the fruit is removed by naturally drying the beans in the sun. Using this method allows the flavors of the fruit to influence the final flavor of the coffee. In the case of the Muleskinner, it’s a definite winner. I liked the rich dark roast (not burnt), it held a deep semi-sweet chocolate essence along with notes of black cherry. As another indicator of the quality, my wife drank almost the entire bag in 3 days! When I began to prepare for this video, I found that I only had enough coffee to brew a single cup…thus the accompanying review of the Melitta 🙂
