Play a Collaboration Game? Answered

Oh my... Coffee beans!

.

Let's try this again! .

.

Challenge: Oh my! I lost my precious special coffee beans! I need to travel around the world searching for them. Will you help me stay awake for that? I will need loooots of coffee for my mission ;)

Design a new coffee filter! Collaborate and innovate together - find a new way to filter coffee. Do not use anything expensive and try not to create too much waste ;) Let's go!

.

.

.

How does this game work:

1) First collect ideas for a coffee filter here under this thread until Monday, March 04th midnight PST - write down what you think would work, freely. (Add in to the already collected ideas - challenge yourself!)

2) Look at and discuss others' ideas here, while they are being collected.

3) Select one idea that you like, and form teams - prototype together, form an Instructable, make it Collaborative. Or alternatively, just add in your existing Instructable and make it Collaborative. Innovate together! A very rough prototype that shows the principle is sufficient. The time limit for this step is to be announced - not more than several days.

4) Collect the 'ibles here under this thread (or I could make a collection of 'ibles if possible)

5) Let's vote and see which new coffee filter is the best! Try to win the most votes and be on the 'podium'!

.

.

.

I will always be around here - you could ask me anything and also give feedback :)

I was thinking what about a mug like an hour glass?
Put coffee in between, put water to the top and wait for hot water dip
the other side. When it is on your desktop and when you watch it, it'll
have a soothing effect on you:) even before you drink it.

Very interesting - what could be the filtering agent in between?

A funnel + paper towels works but it's a waste of towels again (not so much ecological I guess)

Yes, maybe something that does not perish?

Evdeki ince çoraplar kullanılabilir. Hem de kaçırmadan kullanılırsa uzun süre gider. Belki :))

Thank you - my account has been unlocked, thanks to support.

So, again, translation for the other players: you are suggesting using sheer socks that we already have at home. You also state that if used without running / making holes in the sock, it could last a long time.

Eski kagit filtreyi kalorifer peteginde kurutup tekrar kullanmaktan ileri gidemedim :)))

Thank you (this is me, merictaylan again - the system has somehow blocked me and I had to create this new account - that could be resolved Monday).

So just as a translation for the other players, you are suggesting drying used paper filter on a radiator and reusing.
