This morning. I rarely WANT a cup of coffee in the mornings. I do enjoy it often enough to keep a 4 cup coffee pot on the counter top. So I wake up this morning with that Joe urge and low and behold...no filters.:smiley5:

Wound up carefully taking apart a family sized tea bag, emptying the contents, filling with good ol' Folgers, Pleating, folding and reinserting the original staple.

Now fellas, I was unable to find this in the handbook, so just make a mental note. :wiggle:This has got to be the best damn cup o joe I've ever had

It always tastes better when you work for it. Nice job

However, in the morning I rarely feel like working.....so I keep the 750 pack of fiters in the cabinet and make up for it with good beans.

use a paper towel lined in the filter cup of the coffee maker. Nothing keeps me from my joe let me tell you. I NEED IT TO SURVIVE. AsI sit here sipping on a fresh cup of Dunkin Doughnuts coffee.... Yum

You didn't think of putting the coffee inside one of your SO's stockings which was inside a pure cotton sock?

I have been camping with the wrong people!!!!!

goober, when I have that problem I first chew up the gounds, (its actually better if they are whole bean) and then pour boiling hot water down my throat to finish that coffee pleasure.....sometimes I do it even when I have filters.....good to the last drop!

Divingchef, I think that you may enjoy the following note I recently found:

NOTICE OF REVOCATION OF INDEPENDENCE TO THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

In light of your failure to make the correct decision in electing your President, thus showing you to be unfit to govern yourselves, we hereby give you notice of the revocation of your independence effective as of Monday, 3rd November 2008.

Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths and other territories. Except Utah, which she doesn't much fancy.

Your new Prime Minister, the Rt. Hon. Gordon Brown M.P., for the 97.85% of you unaware of the outside world, will appoint a Minister for America without the need for further elections. Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire will be circulated in twelve months time to determine if any of you noticed.

To aid your transition into a British Crown Dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:

All citizens are to look up "revocation" in the Oxford English Dictionary. While there, check the pronunciation guide for "aluminium" - this may be surprising for you. Generally attempt to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels. Look up "vocabulary". Using the same 27 words interspersed with "like" and "you know" is an unacceptable form of communication. Look up "interspersed".
There is no such thing as "U.S. English". We will let Microsoft know on your behalf.
Learn to distinguish British and Australian accents. It is not difficult.
Hollywood will henceforth be required to occasionally cast Englishmen as good guys.
Re-learn your original anthem, "God Save the Queen". Please ensure that you have complied with the first law before attempting this.
Stop playing American "football". There is only one kind of "football". What you refer to as "football" is not a very good game. The 2.15% of you aware of a world outside of your borders may have noticed that no one else plays it. Play proper football instead; to start with get the girls to help you - it is a difficult game. Those of you brave enough will, eventually, be allowed to play rugby, which is similar to American "football", but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full Kevlar body armour like nancies.
Declare war on Quebec and France, using nukes if they give you any merde. The 97.85% of you unaware of the outside world should count yourselves lucky - the Russians have never really been bad guys. (BTW - "Merde” is French for "sh*t".)
4th July is no longer a public holiday. 2nd November will be the new national holiday.
American cars are hereby banned. They are crap; and it is for your own good. When we show you German cars you'll understand.
Please tell us who killed JFK. Its been driving us crazy.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CO-OPERATION.

Ok, first off: MacGyver.

(man, that's been driving me nuts!)

Second, paper towel for the win. Does the job without folding or pleating. Less work is the REAL man way to do it. ;)

Less work is to reuse the last filter. I can't believe nobody had posted this yet.

As I see it takes very little to drive you nuts.

You would have lost. Paper towels where not an option. None where available. Seems to me that would have been obvious when one went to such great lengths as to disassemble a tea bag. I'm sure it is my fault for not giving every little detail.

Now, is all of my spelling and grammar correct in this one?

Some people love the thrill of the build, so the suggestion was applicable, absent more info.

I could care less about your spelling and grammar in general, but don't mess with my favorite TV shows! ;)

Same here, resorted to paper towels. Made at least 2 cups if grounds made it past filter into coffee so i would just drink 1 and 1/2 cups.
