Coffee Filter Alternative Travel Tip

I believe you can buy ground coffee in every country; however, you may need to have coffee filters sent from home. Here is another way to make coffee, for when you are desperate.

1. Boil water with a one-cup hot water cooker.
2. Put in from 1-3 spoons full of ground coffee.
3. Stir, maybe let sit for a few minutes.
4. Slowly pour through a clean scratch pad.

You can purchase these scouring pads in easier than you can find coffee filters.

I gave up coffee, then the Ethiopia Coffee ceremony caused me to slip.
