Described as a cross between a filter dripmaker and a French press, this Grower’s Cup coffeemaker provides a portable, disposable option that makes a cup of coffee that much easier to obtain:
The waterproof polyethylene-coated paper bag comes with 25 grams of ground coffee inside (available in different flavors) and to brew a single cup you simply open the bag from the top, pour in half a liter of boiling water, and then pour out your dose of caffeine through a spout on the side. Because of where the filter and coffee are positioned, the brew doesn’t touch the grounds while it’s ‘percolating’ so it doesn’t have the chance to get bitter. And the specially designed filter supposedly works like a French Press to preserve the coffee’s oils, flavor, and aroma.
The pouches are currently selling in Europe for under $4. Whether they will make it to the States remains to be seen.
