Put coffee in bottom of a small pot, fill with water.


Boil till it's coffee, strain off the grounds.

Mix coffee with boiling water, use a tea strainer & pour into your cup. I have done this when camping.



eta: but a better idea is to run to the store & buy a new one.

Yeah, morning coffee is too important nit to have a decent way to make dependably good coffee.

If I had to do without a coffee maker, I’d buy a good brand of instant and use that, and I would pay attention to water temp. And I’d make the coffee stronger than instructions recommended.

Yes, that’s cowboy coffee, sometimes they skip the strainer and just let the pot settle a bit between pours. Gets interesting towards the end of the batch.

I male tea using loose leaves and was pouring it this morning while I was on a conference call. Apparently I can't talk and pour tea at the same time because I forgot to use the strainer and didn't even notice until I had a mouthful of leaves and spluttering to explain. Yes, "interesting"!

You could use a coffee filter, tie off the filter and brew it like you were brewing tea.
Never done this but sounds pretty self explanatory,right?

You could use a very fine mesh strainer and cheesecloth or even a coffee filter!
Proceed the same as the pour over method!
Or you could go to the store and buy coffee bags. They're just like tea bags but with (Duh, kygman!) coffee. My wife started using them on camping trips and started keeping some around the house after the power went out during the ice storm 11 years ago.

Just put it in the cup of hot water and let it set till it's the right "darkness" as my wife says. She doesn't like hers real strong so she can get two cups of coffee from one bag. I know Maxwell House and Folgers have them.

Pour over for me either coldbrew of hot water.
Cold brew. Its not as bitter or acid. You can heat coffee after the cold brew.
I use a coffee funnel and filter paper for either hot or cold brew. I always use a measuring scoop and my coffee cup for brew uniformity.

You can boil it. A senior citizen friend of mine swears by boiled coffee.

You can use the pour-over method (I use a Chemex pot; others are Melitta, Bodum, etc.). A tea strainer would work for a single cup, too.

You can cold brew it.

You can make your own "coffee bag" as described above, using a tea ball and adding your own coffee.

I haven't used an electric coffee maker for ages.

This is what I choose to use every morning and I’m a true coffee lover, a French Press and it cost all of $13❗️

I only had an electric coffee maker for a few years in my entire life. A one cup coffee maker.

Ever since then, I've used a simple Melitta. I have one ceramic and one plastic in case one of them is dirty.

Put melitta over cup, insert paper filter, add ground coffee, pour boiling water. It drips through quite nicely.

Fast, simple, minimum of cleaning (you throw the filter away or compost it) takes up no space on countertop and is just plain simple. There's a good example of it on the previous page.
