    Everclear ... it's multi-purpose.
    - it's an alcohol stove fuel
    - it's a disinfectant
    - it's a beverage (maybe debatable )

    You know, I think those little Folgers singles show promise. The idea is a champ, if only Folgers weren't such bloody awful coffee.

    Actually it's my fuel of choice for my alky stoves ... expensive but after reading the additives in the other options ... it's worth it to me not to breath them.

    Beverage though ... nawh ... last time I used it for that was college and a party that made PJ and I don't remember much after getting there!
    Oh and I graduated college back in 77!

    I have experimented with them extensively, and can report that the best procedure is:

    1. wet the bag with piping hot water before pouring
    2. make sure you pour piping hot water into the cup, right from the boiling pot
    3. do not allow it to sit for more than 2 minutes; I remove the bag after 1 minute


    Then, you will be pleasantly surprised at that cup of Folgers coffee.

    I hear you. But I'm more a junkie than a coffee snob. I buy whatever dark roast is on sale. Folgers 'Black Silk' at the moment.

    I did the cowboy coffee thing one morning when I awoke to a power outage. My daughter loved it, and that was with Folgers.

    I heard of one approach that I believe was attributed to the Mexican community -- you use cotton cloth (a sock?) to make the equivalent of a reusable teabag. Now that I think of it, I may give that a try after I finish this present cup.

    For me ...... Medaglia D'oro instant espresso. We call it "poop coffee" cause after a cup ...... well ...... off ye' go. Black, dark and strong ... the coffee that is.
    I put a strong dose in a baggie with twist tie and I have my super-strong serving ready to go. Cannot go without it!

    I'm off to town, in a bit. I'll pick some up, and try your method.

    Frawg, I'm not sure if I'm a snob...certainly my Scotch-Irish blood doesn't allow for $2/cup coffee. What I do like is coffee and chicory from the Cafe du Monde in NOLA. I order it by the case, ~$5/can.

    I've been pleased with Don Pablo from Cosco.

    I use a single serving plastic yogurt cup as a drip coffee maker. Punch small hole in bottom, put cut down filter in, grounds, set on top of two sticks on top of cup. Light, reliable, and free.
