Subject: single-cup, personal coffee maker for the office
Someone stole my little Melita filter cone at my office. For regular
coffee (as opposed to espresso), I prefer press pot anyway, and was
thinking of the 8-oz Bodum travel press. But I thought I'd check here
first. Anyone have any other ideas? My requirements: it needs to be
simple to use, simple to clean, small enough to tuck in my cabinet,
and cheap enough I don't need to worry about it getting stolen.

And if you can still find one, a Zassenhaus Turkish grinder. That's
been my standard office setup for a long time now, and I can't think
of a better in terms of taste, cost, and ease of cleanup.

Best,
David

Well SOMEONE has to mention the Aeropress. ;-)

Seriously, I can't think of a better fit for your criteria.

Use a one cup Pyrex tea pot (like this one on Ebay #270096257082), a micro
mesh strainer and a mug. Add the grinds to the pot, steep, pour into mug at
your desk. Cleanup is just rinsing the teapot and strainer and putting them
back in your desk together. Makes coffee similar to a press pot without all
the cleanup.

*$ and a few other stores have a single serve pressmug thingy.
I imagine it would work fine providing you don't let it sit for
long and overextract.

I use a thai coffee maker at the office. But you have to be patient
it's not for your first cuppa.
