I’ve been debating on how I will make my morning java. Formerly i used a hamilton Beach Single Serving Elec . coffee maker. Simple setup, but won’t be using elec anymore. I figure on heating water on the butane stove or in a 12v travel mug.
I also have been trying to think of some way to filter water, while on the road. I am figuring to use melted ice cube water….storing it in large containers in the ice chest. Getting water from all different sources is like asking for ‘problems’. I am not one to waste my money on buying bottled water…..only actually buy it that way if I need one in my purse to enjoy in a movie, and it needs to be sealed.
Decision made…..I must find something suitable to fit in my containers and filter things.
I found this 3″ tall 2.5 ” wide filter thingy…sitting inside a single serve glass coffee pot in a thrift store today. It also has a button to press in case your grounds get clogged…but I will be using a paper filter.
I will either find a water filter cartridge to fit or make an activated charcoal filter out of charcoal and two coffee filters, tied with a good twisty tie. Easy Peezy!
I also found a cute blue metal cream pitcher, that will double as a single serve coffee pot….as well as a pitcher that can be used to get water out of sinks not large enough to put a larger container in. Nice spout and nice handle…unbreakable, and small enough to stick in my beach bag satchel.
Cost…$2.99 for both at the thrift store
