I don’t drink a lot of coffee, so maybe I don’t fully appreciate this coffee brewing hack, but since I love DIY solutions to problems, I wanted to show an awesome hack James from survivalpunk.com thought of in order to brew coffee using nothing but a glass carafe, a filter, and a cut off top of a soda bottle.
If you cut the bottom off of a 20 ounce soda bottle you can insert it into the top of a glass carafe (or bottle with a large neck). Put a coffee filter into the top of the soda bottle and fill with he appropriate amount of coffee and you can pour water into the filter and have coffee drip into your glass.
I am more of a tea drinker so I am more likely to do this with loose tea, but the idea is the same.
Hope this is useful to you.
After this post went live, I had a lot of requests to review french presses for coffee making. I don’t know why because I said I don’t drink coffee, but I did get one. I used it to make tea. It did a good job and I liked it, but it took too long for something I drink by the gallon.
