Tiny one-cup coffeemakers
I love my coffee but kind of in the way of someone who loves wine but will buy it from a plastic jug in the drugstore: it's about the high, not the bean for me. I don't mind if it's chocolate-kiwi flavored, freeze dried, or some coffee conneisseur's nightmare blended with ice, whipped cream and candy shavings. But I am trying to self-improve and de-sugar my addiction, so I'm looking into these one-cup coffee makers to keep it straight, and not caffeinate to the point of the shakes. The Ready, Set, Joe One-Cup is non-electric so it can be used as long as you have access to hot water. You just need a cone filter and ground coffee and your cup or travel mug (it comes with one or the other) will be ready to go with fresh coffee in under a minute.
If you're a fan of coffee pods, Melitta also makes a one-cup system for POD-system coffees or teas. You use your own mug so you don't have to waste the time pouring. Drip, drip, drink.
