Something for the coffee snobs.

Post by Bearbonesnorm » Wed Oct 09, 2019 6:23 pm

Mike started his email by saying that he wanted something light to hold a coffee filter while he waxed his beard and platted his man-bun. Then he followed up by adding 'and it needs to fit inside my mug'.

It sounded dead easy, so I said 'yeah'. Turns out, it's actually slightly more tricky than I imagined. Anyway, I've arrived at the working prototype stage. It's light (9g) and completely flexible so hard to break even for Mike. I'll keep you posted on progress. Sorry for the poor pictures.

Does the araldite go in the top, or wait until you're brewed up and add with the sugar?

But you need to pack filters though right?

I have the gsi ultralight java drip, cracking bit of kit, you just add ground coffee to it, only problem is I have to pack it separately. If you could mirror that but make it smaller and more packable then sign me up!

Speaking as a coffe snob I'd just like to object to being called a coffee snob. [-X
