    Do you have a special brew basket? I tried googling but nothing came up that helped. Please post your details. I am so interested in this.

    Yes, this is what I use. I don't use my big coffeemaker either, only drink one a day.

    Just google "finum brewing basket" and it will give you a link to Amazon. Or just use that name in the search box at Amazon. That's where I bought mine about 2 years go. The picture shows the basket sitting on the lid. I let the coffee steep for 7 minutes, but you can check to see what works best for you. It hangs onto the top of your mug and you cover it with the lid after pouring in the boiling water over the grounds. The basket is too tall to use in a standard cup, so I use a mug.

    I buy just straight coffee and not just one kind, I switch off. I have two big cups a day. Just straight, no sugar, no cream.

    I have just discovered Gevalia. It has a wonderful flavor and is not bitter.
    If you wouldn't write it and sign it, don't say it.

    I forgot to mention, I have the medium size brew basket. There is a way to choose size when ordering.

    I don't know if you have Aldi Stores where you live, but we have them here. I buy the Aldi Brand Coffee, the big can for $5.99 and it is wonderful. My sister and I like it better than Folgers.

    Thank you for getting back to me. I am going to go searching now that I know what to look for. Great idea by the way. I drink one cup a day, but it is a large mug.

    I have a regular full (12) coffee maker, a 4 cup maker, and retired both
    of them to the bottom shelf of the pantry.

    We use the Keurig hubs ONLY likes the Starbuck's Sumatra coffee, and
    I like most medium to dark coffees. I like to change it around so I don't
    get bored with the coffee. Plus at home I usually only drink 1 cup.

    Keurig is perfect for us.

    America's Test Kitchen just did a testing on this. The top of the list was Peet's coffee. Alot of coffee makers add beans that are still green to the bag which causes it to be bitter tasting, up to 14 which I guess is a big deal. Peet's only had one in their bag. I don't drink it because I like mellow coffee, I normally use Folgers breakfast blend or one that says mild or med roast. I have the gold metal basket in mine but put a paper filter in it so that I don't get the sediment at the bottom of the cup that you get from the metal basket. This way it double filters it. The paper goes in first then the metal goes in it, this way I can use the paper a couple of times if I make more than a pot in one day.

My husband drinks coffee by the gallon and since I started roasting my own beans he doesn't have the heartburn that he used to get drinking coffee.
