Introduction: Portable Coffee Filtering Straw for Outdoors or Coffee Addicts
Have you ever been outdoors camping, hiking, or away from a coffee machine? don't you wish you could have a nice cup of joe to give you a nice pick me up?
Well i have.. is miserable.. and those caffeine headaches are horrible..
As many of you might know in the old days people used to boil water with coffee grinds and that's how they used to make coffee.. it was the only way to get it done..
the filtering part was always the hard and messy part.. i seen cases where people used paper towels, pieces of cloth, once i even saw a picture of someone using a bra to filter his coffee..
anyways thanks to technology we have these useful things called reusable coffee filters for keurig machines. and french presses..
french presses are great but still bulky.. also they don't provide the most filtered coffee.. sometimes you get coffee grinds that sneak in..
so i'm not gonna lie.. i got part of this idea from andrewaxley who used a similar system to filter water using a water filter..
So what can be perfectly portable and uses a suction system to provide fresh coffee when you don't have a coffee machine
a coffee filtering straw!!
So this is what you need
a 1/2 OD x 3/8 ID vinyl hose.. i use clear because is easy to clean and care for
Step 1: Assemble It, Boil Some Coffee, and Sip on Some Hot Joe
Assemble the keurig coffee filter... just don't put anything in it..
attach vinyl hose to coffee filter.. you can heat up in microwave for very short amount of time to make it soft
get your boiling water with coffee (wait till it cools)
get your straw out and have the freshes filtered coffee you will ever have outdoors without a coffee machine

Step 2: Watch It in Action Video Youtube Video
Please note that you don't need that large of straw.. i just did it that way because it was easier to show that there is not coffee grinds in the straw..
