    One-Cup Drip Coffee

    - Take the coffee filter and put it inside the coffee filter cone. You can use a funnel instead of the cone as well. However, make sure the funnel you are using can withstand the heat of boiling water. It is also better to have a cone-shaped coffee filter but you can use the other ones and improvise them to fit the funnel as well.

    - Place the funnel over the top of the coffee mug and measure some ground coffee into the filter. The quantity of grounded coffee will depend upon your taste; add more coffee for a stronger taste and use smaller quantity of ground coffee for a weaker taste.

    - Put some water in a kettle and boil it properly. Now slowly pour the boiling water into the funnel and onto the coffee grounds, letting it filter into the mug.
