And wow -- what an awesome cup of joe I got from it using Illy medium roast -- piping hot and delicious. Couldn't have been easier, just put in a #2 filter, scoop in grounds, then pour hot water over. To clean up, just toss the filter and give the cone a quick rinse (it is also dishwasher safe). I seem to recall from way back that the difficulty I had with it was being able to judge how much hot water to use, but now it has a cutout on the base so you can see the water level in the mug, plus, since I can use a microwave to heat the water, it is easy enough to pre-measure the water.
People are always discussing methods of brewing your own in a keurig or pod brewer, but it seems to me that this would be a great option -- use the machine when you are brewing a k-up or pod, use the cone for ground coffee. It is cheap, easy, pretty much indestructable, and would travel very nicely.
