Out of the Blue

Okay, here's my response to xXBatmanXx's homework assignment from the forum yesterday. A perfect cup of coffee is easy to accomplish. Start with clean, filtered water and fresh (whole) beans roasted to taste. Grind the beans in a burr grinder (not one of those cheapie blade choppers). The generally accepted formula is a tablespoon of grounds per cup, but this is a matter of taste, as is how coarsely you grind the coffee (I make incredibly strong coffee myself, so I use a lot of French roast beans and a fine grind). Boil the water, and make the coffee in a simple Melitta cone (give the water a couple of seconds to come off the boil before pouring), which has all the functionality of a coffee maker with none of the dirt, calcium, and bacteria traps. Transfer the outcome to a thermal carafe, and it will be hot and fresh for several hours. Enjoy your coffee.

So you make your coffee by hand????
Do you have a device that holds the cone (not directly over the cup). What do you use so that it isn't a huge mess?

Well, I pour the water by hand, yes. Here's what I use:
