Three Boys & an Old Lady

This blogging mama loves finding new things and spreading the word about fab finds

We’ve all seen those fancy-schmancy coffeemakers that make coffee by the cup.  I’ll be the first to admit, I love the idea of brewing a cup of coffee one cup at a time, but what a waste of electricity for a single cup of coffee…gimme a break.  Or better yet, what about those times when you want regular and someone else wants decaf or even a flavored coffee?  Melitta has the perfect solution…Ready Set Joe.

Ready Set Joe is the perfect, one-cup of coffee solution.  It’s easy to use, economical, totally portable, perfect for making a single cup of coffee whenever…wherever and it’s from Melitta.  Melitta is an innovator when it comes to coffee and makes some fine coffee makers. 
The Ready Set Joe is very innovative in that it requires no electricity.  Simply place a cone filter in the unit, fill with the coffee of your liking and pour hot water into the filter and Ready Set Joe does the rest.

The Melitta Ready Set Joe comes in a coffee mug and travel mug variety.  I received the coffee mug along with an assortment of Melitta Café Selection ground coffees.  

The directions are simple, fill the brewer with filter, add coffee, pour hot water and wait.  Fortunately, we have a water cooler that dispenses both hot and cold water so I didn’t have to heat the water.  I placed a scoop of coffee into the filter, poured my hot water into the unit and waited about a minute and voila I had a steaming, cup of freshly brewed coffee.  Over the course of the next week I had the opportunity to brew several cups of coffee using the Ready Set Joe and am happy to report the unit delivered every time.

Besides it’s ease of use and consistency to produce a great cup of coffee every time I used it, my fave feature of the Melitta Ready Set Joe is the cost.  The coffee mug retails for $5.99  and the travel mug for $8.99.  Even at $8.99, the travel size is still a bargain.
