I have come full circle.

Green beans, homemade roaster, burr grinders, etc.   The whole 11 yards.  (9 + 2 more)

Using trial and error, I have settled on a very inexpensive, zero effort, coffee recipe that costs less than a pound of green beans.

I have been using the same MacMaster polyester filter for 5 years in the inverted Aeropress method.

This filter idea came from board member rasqual  (Thanks Scott).

Try this recipe:

I scoop  (2 Tbl) + a little more of Walmart decaf coffee.  No fooling.  $3.49 for 11 oz. can.

(BJ's decaf comes in at $4.00 per pound and I find it slightly better.)

Up to 3 tsp Splenda, depending on taste.

Lighten with Walmart Original non dairy creamer from the refer section; not powder.  $1.63 per quart.  No substitute, I tried other brands.

7.5 oz of good water in a Pyrex pour/drink cup.  (Or any 8 oz. cup)

(Remember the photo that I posted a few years back?)

Microwave water for 90 seconds, boiling or just below, doesn't matter.

Pour into inverted Aeropress plunger set at the digit 3 onto coffee.  Use funnel if pour cup not available.

Stir with spoon, wait 15 seconds.

While waiting, add 3 tsp of Splenda to water remaining in cup, stir.

Screw on filter with the rougher side of polyester to coffee.

Press until oils appear outside filter holder.

Revert and place on Pyrex cup.

Press down a bit, stop, pull back, and complete press.

Add Walmart creamer to just below pour spout  (8 oz total), stir.

Microwave for 30 seconds to heat up.

Delicious.

I can make this recipe many guests in just a few minutes, if I have a kettle of hot water ready.


Worth a try.

Do you own A LOT of shares in Walmart? This sounds vile, and despite how 'cheap' it would be to make, I am not going to waste that money on it.

I've had a look through your other posts, and they all seem to follow this ethos of "Everyone on here is deluded in thinking that coffee requires effort and/or knowledge; I'll show them!" and it's just silly.
Please stop?

 
As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.

The other option which is really much easier is a teaspoon of Nestle Nescafe instant coffee, some just off the boil water and fresh milk.

It's a mystery to me why you would go to so much effort using poor ingredients like Splenda and non dairy creamer.

Oh dear, I suspect I can't interest you in my Nescafe, Marvel and aspartame recipe then?

Way too complicated.

Try this:

- A couple of spoonfuls of almost any instant coffee
- A cup of hot water
- Any brand of instant hot cocoa mix

The cocoa mix with the little marshmallows adds an elegant touch.

Posted April 8, 2013 link

Yeah, but don't the marshmallows clog up your portafilter?

Great idea! My mother in law goes through at least a pot of my fresh roasted Guatamala Antigua every time she comes over, which has now become at least 2-3 times a week! One of these and she may never drink my coffee again!
