Coffee challenge

On Sunday the 12th after hours of collaboration, I submitted my entry, Coffee Orange Coffee Cake, to the Coffee Challenge; and the notes said that it would take a business day for it to be reviewed prior to actually being posted.  Yesterday I patiently waited; and first thing this morning I checked for its appearance in the Challenge; however, it was not there, and I don't want to miss out on the action.  Could you please check the status of my entry.  Other people helped me to put it together, and I really wouldn't want to disappoint them especially in view of all the hard work that was undertaken on my behalf. Please let me know. Best regards, Chef Sea

Coffee substitutes

I wonder if anyone, with experience, can make Instructables explaining how to make coffee substitutes. I understand that coffee substitutes have been made from different sources: chicory, dandelion roots, coffeeweeds, garbanzo beans and, grains. Cassia occidentalis is known as Coffeeweed in some parts of the United States and as Hedionda in Puerto Rico. The Cassia occidentalis and Senna occidentalis produce a very aromatic brew. It was used once during a coffee shortage.

Coffee Filter Dispenser

Awhile back I bought a box of basket coffee filters that the top had a tab with some kind of sticky tape on it that when you pushed it against the filters it would pull one filter out at a time.  Cannot find these boxed filters anymore and mine has worn out.  Anyone have an idea on how to make one of these or something like it. Thanks

Folding coffee table?

Hi instructable community. I am currently graduating, and I own a 484sq. feet (45m^2) apartment. I have the basics and am quite grateful for what I have. however, I belive that a coffee table is almost a necessity. The problem is that if the table isn't wide enough, it won't be of much use, and if it's too wide, it will occupy too much space and will be in the way. That's (hopefully) where you brilliant minded people come in. I was thinking about a folding coffee table that will be thin, and when I have company over, I pull on it or something and it widens up so it can comfortably hold a few glasses and maybe a book or too. I have added a few images of the area that the table will go. The couch is 2m in length (6.56167979 feet) so you can get a generall image of the room. The couch is on a slight angle, so the small plant can fit behind it (it's on a chair so it can get sunlight),  so I can move the couch around a little for a bit more room. Please keep in mind that I do not have many tools, but I know how to work with raw materials, It will just take a little more time (instead of an electrical saw, I have a hand saw. Same job, takes longer). Also I don't have alot of spare money and I can't find "special" items (for example, ball bearings, and pivot and swirlly stuff are out of the picture). I know it sounds quite bizzare but I would like some help. It doesn't HAVE to be a foldable table, but I would prefer it to be, because the couch is also a bed, so if someone comes over for a couple days, I need to be able to "hide" the table to open up some space.  Worst case scenario, I'll make a small(ish) chest that will double as the table. Thank you for your time reading this message. I will be glad to hear from any of you!

Uses for coffee "cans"

As my depression era ancestors would say, those plastic containers that coffee comes in are "just too good to throw away." Other than the obvious uses as a bailing bucket or a scoop, does anybody have a really inventive application? Maybe this could be an "ible" contest.

re-usable coffee filter

Men's socks (the  long black ones they wear to the office) make good reusable coffee filters and a good cup of coffee. Just be sure to wash them in plain water or something that isn't made with detergent or soap.

Has anyone tried making a centrifuge coffee maker?

Has anyone tried making a centrifuge coffee maker?  Coffee from a French Press is some of the finest you can brew, but it takes too long for the grounds to settle out.  A coffee centrifuge would (in principle) give you the French Press taste, with the clarity and smoothness of a filter machine.  It's just a question of how you'd go about making one!?

Does anyone know where I can find plans for a vacuum coffee pot? Answered

I'm looking for a modern design that can be used for camping or working on a site away from a shop. It cannot be made from glass nor have exotic metals. I'm looking for something that can be easily made for low cost. I had thought about modifying a percolator type coffee pot but I'm not sure if it were to work. If anyone has a instructable or a link, that would be great. I've already done a ton of internet searching but it always sends me to the 18th/19th century stuff or out- of -stock models made 20 years ago.

Coffee tables can really bring a room together, especially if they're high-tech and provide their own entertainment.

Of course, as with any coffee table, you'll need to have a coffee table book about coffee tables.Link via Neatorama

Advice on building a coffee table?

I am in the process of building a coffee table out of Tassie oak wood and I am wondering if I will need to put the table top through a thicknesser after I biscuit  join the top together. The only problem the max width the thicknesser can handle is 600mm wide and I want to make the top wider but then I won't be able to put it through the thicknesser so can I just sand the top to make it nice and even since it is hardwood or thickenesser it in two sections . Open for suggestions thanks for your help.

Automatic Coffee Cup Warmer

I was given a coffee cup warmer many years ago. What made it so great was that it only turns on when there is a cup sitting on the plate; remove the cup and the warmer turns off. The other great feature about it, is that it has a higher temperature than any I have purchased since. There is no name thereon so cannot check to see if they exist anymore - no luck with Google so far.   What I would like to do is either be able to safely adjust a current model so it is somewhat hotter or, preferably, also make it automatic. Making it hotter is the first priority. jackew@earthlink.net

Looking for Seville Orange Flavoured Coffee or the receipe?

I used to buy this coffee at Rafal's in Detroit (Leading spice importer) but it closed down and none of the local specialty grocery stores sell the coffee, Amazon lists the coffee but it is unobtainable at this time. I tried adding Kroger orange essence to generic run 'o' the mill coffee but it was weak (Even after adding the entire little bottle) and it had a "Candy" like flavour that was actually slightly sweet and not like the coffee which is slightly bitter. I have my trusty Ronco dehydrator and have considered looking for tart Florida oranges to dry and cut for use in the mix. I came up empty on a Yahoo and Google search and so hopefully someone has the smarts and knowledge to replicate the coffee. I prefer to make things myself over buying them but desperation is setting in and I will break down and buy coffee if I need to.

UK hacked car takes speed record off Americans.

Just over a year ago, the BBC had a coffee-powered car built, along the lines of this popular instructable. Now, that same car has been used to set a new speed record for a gasification-powered car, previously set at 47mph by Beaver Energy, using a car run on gasified wood-chips. With his car running coffee grounds, engineer Martin Bacon and his team from County Durham. pushed the record up to 65mph, an official Guinness Record, although it falls short of the team's goal of 80mph. The BBC article is here, but if you're outside the UK, and can't watch the video, the same video is below, but lacks the voices.

BBC runs Instructable-powered car?

Some of you will have seen the Honda that runs on trash. Jimmason built a gasification plant into the back end of the Honda, and ran the car on the gas produced. A classic Make, which the BBC have recreated, in the form of a car that runs on used coffee grounds. The video is here (click and scroll down to the second video) - it won't embed from the BBC. No sign of a credit for the source, but I do know that the chap in the video knows this site exists, since I tried to persuade him to join. What do you reckon - coincidence or plagiarism?

Currently, the Keurig B60 can only make up to a 10oz cup, which is actually 9.5oz. I would like to know if there is anyway to tamper with the settings etc, and increase that amount. I realize that you can simply set it to run again by selecting another cycle, but I would like to avoid that.

Some things to do with pressure sensors

Two projects I'm thinking of will use pressure sensors. The first is a device that would sit under coffee air pots.  There have been countless times when I've gone to get coffee at a self-serve place and there are five pots, but no one tells the counter person they are running dry and I then I have to wait for them to brew.  A pressure plate under the pots would control set of red/yellow/green LEDs to indicate how full the pots are. The second is to use a pressure plate outside the door where your pet comes in and out of the house.  It would trigger a doorbell when your pet wants in before it gets a chance to start scratching up the woodwork.
