Because I am single I do not own a large coffee pot. I used to but once I moved to my apartment with my little walk through kitchen—well space is at a premium. If I am at home I can drink up to 4 cups or more a day. Years ago my Mom bought me a Melitta one cup plastic cone. I use it all time but----you have to make sure you have number 2 cone filters. (Number four cone filters will work in a pinch but you have to be really careful or the boiling liquid will end up burning you-I know!!) Then you have to wait until the water boils. You then stick the filter into the cone-some ground coffee into the filter-place over your cup-pour in the boiling water and wait for the water to drip through. I generally rinse off the plastic cone immediately. That does not mean to say that I haven’t been looking at those new machines that make coffee with virtually no clean up by the cup. Most work places have them now—but they have always been too large for my kitchen!
One of my friends who loves a good cup of Latte with frothed milk sprinkled with cinnamon bought a home espresso maker with an extra froth attachment. She loves it—and I have to admit—that coffee was good. But again—it was too large. I do need some room to prep my dinners!! I also like a variety of different coffees and these models have all different flavors. I also like different types of coffee depending on my mood—I can live without the froth attachment although I probably would use it. So began my internet search for a slim model or at least one that didn’t take the entire counter space!!
Companies are finally coming out with slim models!! I know Macy’s has lots of coffee makers as does Sears and several other stores near me—I think I will now go shopping and see if I can find one on sale (I will be keeping my eye on the internet as well, but call me old fashioned, when it comes to electronics of any kind, I want to see it and feel it before I buy it—until then—I will have to continue to use my one cup plastic cone!
