I use the pour over cone for one cup...$12 with filters. Just make 2 cups and you are good...
no issue moving either.

Why can't you fill the pot with boiling water, then put the insert in and let it steep? Or at least fill the pot partially, then put the insert in and continue filling.

You can buy a 12 cup electric coffee maker on Amazon Prime for $29. I sure as heck would do that.
Or go to WalMart, or even most hardwares, and get a Black and Decker or Proctor Silex one for $24.99. Both of those have timers so the coffee's ready when you get up. Yeah, the OP's setup is alright if you have time to wait, not so much if you don't.

I also use a french press, they make good coffee, & you can take it with you, when you leave. The other point in its favor, is that it will work anywhere in the world.
Coffee makers at a local market, will be wired to local electricity, which varies around the world, making it maybe unusable in other countries.

Yep, I went to Walmart and bought my Mr Coffee for about $30. That one pictured is really strange.

I make one cup of coffee at a time, using the Melitta #2 cone and filters. But Melitta offers other options.

It looks more like an infuser. I've seen somethimg very similiar used to make tea from huge dried flower blossoms. And then the tea was chilled & served over ice.

You should easily be able to buy a copper water boiling pot with a long very narrow spout. You use it to slowly pour boiling water over the ground coffee. It is the original drip method. Just like pouring water over the single cup Melitta filter gizmo.

Or look into using Amazon & paying the import fees for a coffee maker.

The region has French influences, so stove top one cup expresso makers are likely available or entire machines. I prefer making coffee with an expresso machine, but I consider coffee to be a food group.

agree that it looks more like a tea infuser.

I found this which should point you in the right direction

https://www.reddit.com/r/Thailand/co..._availability/

It included this link with many options to choose from
