Can you use a paper towel? Or even Kleenex?

Any suggestions?

If you lived a little further south you could come over and borrow some!

Don't use Kleenex, it will shred. :earseek:

I would try a single piece of paper towel and see if that works. But don't walk away from the pot :goodvibes

I had a friend who used paper towels when his wife didn't get to the store - which seemed to be fairly often. :rolleyes: It will work, but be careful!

You're only supposed to use all white paper towels to do it.
Cut off the excess at the top - not only is it a tough fit otherwise, but the hot water will drip down the outside of the pot.

Good luck!

OK - I'll 'fess up. :blush: I forgot about those brown ones. They're okay too. What you're supposed to avoid are those printed ones people use at home...because of the dyes. I should have said that. The all brown ones are probably even better than the white because they aren't bleached.

How'd you make about Agotta? Did you get drinkable coffee yet?

It turned out ok. I found out I didn't have sugar and had to use splenda and then it was too sweet. I guess in a pinch the papertowels worked out. Better than nothing!!
