Coffee maker question

Does anyone use the drip coffee filter baskets like this?

If so, do they work well?
They are okay, you need a fairly fine grind so the water goes through a bit slower so it has a chance to extract more coffee out of the grind. You have to play with the grind level also so it just doesn't turn to mud and the water doesn't go through at all.
@Ontheroad I've had that one as well. It was good, but drop it and it breaks

@come2gether good point!
@Ontheroad I ended up buying a Breville Barista Touch after years of trying to make the best coffee I could make one cup at a time. Sure, you'll drop $800, but you'll enjoy it right away if you like having options for what kind of a coffee you want, one cup at a time.

I'm not a fan, because too many grounds get through. It brothers me when I see coffee grounds on the bottom of the coffee pot. If that doesn't bother you, I really don't see any other difference. I will use it if I run out of filters but I put paper towel in it, that seems to help a little.

Makes the richest tasting coffee next to French press! I like them. Yum.

I love my coffee (no milk, no sugar) and I've been happily using a cafetiere for over 20 years. Simple job: heat the pot by swilling it out with boiling water, add your ground coffee (I usually use 2 heaped teaspoons, depending on strength) bring the kettle back to the boil and pour it over the coffee. After about 3 minutes depress the plunger and pour. The used grounds make good fertiliser.....

I don’t care for it. It allows too many coffee grounds to get through

They work well. If the filters are thin I double up and use two.

Yes. I've been using that type for 30 years. They work fine.
Quite slow .

I added to your other post with greater detail - but i use this

Its like a pour coffee filter (its for tea actually), but you can steep the grounds if you want, or just pour over.

@OogieBoogie I ended up ordering one similar to yours and a metal double-walled metal French Press like @AntisocialTroll suggested. We'll see which I end up liking best, but I'm going to get rid of the Keurig.
