Coffee Obsession Leads to New Product

I'm a bit obsessed with my coffee. I buy organic green beans and roast them myself in my i-Roaster. I used to use a french coffee press to make my coffee, but after breaking two of the glass containers for the press, I gave up and started making "cowboy coffee," brewing in a metal stove pot and pouring through a metal sieve. But I'm always left with mud on the bottom of my cup, and my last sip of coffee is often spat back into the cup. I have a big electric drip coffee maker, but it's too big for just one person. So, I finally made a coffee carafe out of clay and ordered some Chemex filters, the kind used in those glass carafes where you pour the boiling water manually into the top of the carafe. I brewed my first cup this morning, and it worked like a charm, making a wonderful cup of coffee.

I'll be selling these in my shop.
