So many instructables about making pasta that I had to do my own that did not require Ramen noodles. The great thing about this one is you can keep the ingredients in a sealed container in the trunk for a short trip or in a closet for a college student. Actually I will be doing eggless pasta which is safer for our purposes. Eggless pasta is sometimes known as trenette.
Make sure the coffee maker is clean of any coffee grinds. It might take several water only cycles to clean. or have a spare one. They are cheap.

Step 1: Tools and ingredients.
Coffee maker that does at least 4 or more cups.
Soup bowl for mixing and eating.
Fork with a flat back end.
Base pasta ingredients:
1/2 -3/4 cup flour + some for dusting.
1/6 to 1/4 cup water for dough.
10-12 cups water for coffee maker.
Dried cheese such as Parmesan.
Step 2: Make the dough.
Mix flour and water in the bowl and stir with the fork or use you floured hands till you get a good ball and nothing is left on the sides of the bowl. If there is a little bit left just wash it out. Then let the dough rest for a bit.
Step 3: Coffee maker time.
Add the 10 -12 cups of water to the coffee maker. Turn on the coffeemaker, let percolate till all I mean all the water has gone into the carafe.
Step 4: Pasta strips.
Put down some flour on the foil. put dough down on top of that and press down with your hand so it becomes like a pancake. Then take the glass and spread the dough out even farther as you can but not paper thin. Then dust well with flour so there are no wet sticky spots.
Step 5: Roll it
With the pasta not sticky, roll it up like a cinnamon roll. All the way though.
