When machinery lets you down, ingenuity picks you up.

Step 1: Plunger Broke at the Critical Moment?

I like coffee. I REALLY like coffee. so when this happened, and no instant in the house, What To Do?

Step 2: Filter

Coffee Filters are also made of paper, EH? But where to find paper in a kitchen?

Step 3:

Wet paper, and mould to top of vessel. Make sure the paper clings to the side of the jug or it'll fall in. You can do this straight into the cup, but I was making 2 cups.

Step 4:

Add coffee, to taste.
be gentle

Step 5:

Add water, Gently!

Step 6: Take Time to Appreciate What You've Done

Step 7: Dispose of Waste

Step 8: Pour and Enjoy

What does the comment mean that appears when the mouse is over the picture: "just like a woman, if you go to (too) hard...?" Sexist?

I think its more tongue-in-cheek than sexist really.

step seven looks like a diper thats been on for awhile

aw, no crema from drip coffee. :P no fun!

This is great. Coffee is my life and this is the newest part of it. I've been meaning to buy a french press for a long time because, well, it's a very pure way to make a nice fresh cup. This inspires me to simply make my own. I never thought of it as simply as a carafe and a filter. Ta-da! thanks so very much.

Drip coffee is very different from french press coffee in taste and composition. The extraction is not quite the same. Be aware that paper towels can retain acids or bleach compounds or inks that may not be good to put in the body especially every morning and may affect the way the coffee tastes. Buy a new plunger or french press!
