So this morning, in the midst of making my coffee all bleary eyed, I suddenly have a sobering moment and realize that I am out of coffee filters. Oh Crap.. Not good… I MUST have my morning coffee.
So I’m sharing this valuable little coffee secret I learned in college, if you’re ever caught without them..
All you need is 1 paper towel sheet and a pair of scissors..
Fold it in half
Fold it in half again..
eyeball or measure with your finger the depth of your filter basket
Apply the same length on the paper towel
And cut like so, to make a circle
And ta-da! Instant coffee filter.
Put it in your basket and fill with ground coffee. Crisis averted!
