So I am quite pleased with new Melitta ‘Pour over’ coffee maker. You take your ground coffee and put it into the cone-shaped holder along with a paper filt. Then you pour boiling water into the cone. It then drips quickly down into your coffee mug. I find I am able to make a nicer cup of coffee than in my Keurig machine. Except yesterday during lunch I poured the cone full of boiling water and then accidently bumped the whole contraption with the kettle. Darn! There was coffee and boiling water all over the countertop, the stove top and then then down into the space between the stove and the wall. Arrrgh! What a mess. But … it still makes an excellent cup of coffee.
