Gift cards are how I keep track of how much I spend on books a month. If I added $20 to my gift card, once that balance is gone, I am done buying books for the month.

I have the hardest time with figuring out how much coffee I need. I get up in the morning, make a full pot of coffee. Some days I drink it all, some days I drink 2 cups throwing away a lot of coffee. I waste a lot.
I wanted to try a one cup coffee maker and Melitta offered to let me try one from their Ready Set Joe line. It is a line of non-electric coffee makers. I thought why not?
That is the one I received yesterday.
Now, I’ll admit, I had my doubts. How could just pouring hot water over my coffee make a good cup of coffee? When I analyzed it some more while waiting for it to arrive I thought about how my coffee maker works. It’s hot water going over coffee. This should work!
That is what I received: the Ready Set Joe Single Cup Coffee Brewer and Melitta Classique Supreme coffee from their Cafe Collection. The coffee brewer came with some no. 2 cone filters that just made me giggle. They’re so much cuter than my big huge ones that go in my pot. I’m silly I know.
I got me some hot water (I actually put my water in the microwave for 2 minutes, but hot tap water would work as well – I think that would be a great way to be green with this, saving on electricity!) and got ready to make my coffee.
I like my coffee strong and the amount I used was just perfect I found.
Making the coffee
The end result
Now came the big test. Would this coffee taste just as good as what came out of my coffee pot every morning?
It did. In fact, it tasted better. I think that’s a result of the taste of the Melitta Classique Supreme coffee. It was really really good. So much so that I ended up making a second cup. I’m not one who drinks coffee in the afternoon. I have it first thing in the morning and I usually want one late at night (I know, perfect time to be drinking coffee, right before bed). I could have drank coffee all afternoon yesterday, mighty impressed I was.
I don’t think I’ll get rid of my coffee pot just yet because there are times that I drink a whole pot in the morning (I think I’m going to switch to the Melitta Classique Supreme coffee though.) This is perfect for me at night when I just want one cup.
I showed it to Pato last night and he was all for it. There was some pointing at my coffee pot and grumbling about how much coffee I waste every day.
I had to test the filter cone while I was playing with it on one of my travel mugs. It sat right on top of it. That gave me ideas for when I have to leave early in the morning, don’t have time to drink a pot of coffee, and usually stop at the gas station to get a cup of their icky stuff. I can just quickly brew some using the Ready Set Joe Single Cup Coffee Brewer and be out the door without wasting a pot of coffee that I didn’t measure out correctly.
Guess how much this convenience costs? You’re not going to believe me when I tell you. Seriously, try to guess, I’ll wait.
You can get the Ready Set Joe Single Cup Coffee Brewer on Melitta’s website for $5.99 for the cup and the filter cone! Let me say that again. $5.99! Can you believe that?
Want the travel mug? You can get the Ready Set Joe Travel Mug & Cone for $8.99.
For real! I couldn’t believe the price either.
They even have big coffee pots.
The Gourmet 6 Cup Manual Coffeemaker is a whole $9.99.
And that wonderful tasting coffee I mentioned above? The Melitta Classique Supreme coffee can be bought for $6.99. I spend more than that on my coffee that comes in a big ol’ tub at the store. It’s good, but not as good as their coffee.
Melitta Benz had it right when she first punctured the bottom of a brass pot and lined it with blotting paper taken from the notebook of her oldest son to make a cup of filtered coffee back in 1908 changing the history of coffee as we know it. I must say I’m grateful because the way they used to make coffee just doesn’t sound as pleasant as what we make today.
