How to make a perfect cup of coffee.

You will need:

  • A Senseo coffee brewer.
  • A coffee grinder.  I use a Melitta grinder with 18 grind settings.
  • Coffee filters for 8-cup brewers.  (Yes, I know the Senseo is a one-cup brewer.  Get them anyway.)
  • A 63 mm. diameter measuring cup.  I use a 1/4-cup metal you can get from any supermarket or discount store.
  • A plastic vitamin bottle that will fit just inside the measuring cup.  I use a 120-count Schiff vegetarian vitamin bottle.
  • A coffee measure.

  1. Grind your coffee at the finest setting.  It should be as fine as espresso.  If your coffee is already ground but not espresso, regrind it.
  2. Lay a filter over the 63 mm. measuring cup and push it down inside with the vitamin bottle so that it lines the cup.
  3. Fill the filter with two level coffee measures of coffee.
  4. Fold the edges of the filter down over the coffee and press it with the vitamin bottle.  You have just made a coffee pod.
  5. Carefully remove the pod from the measuring cup and put it in the 2-pod holder.  Brew as you would  2 Senseo pods.
  6. Add cream or sugar to taste.  Enjoy!
