"No coffee filters!?"
"Could we do it in a cup without filters?"

Put a heaping teaspoon of ground coffee in a round cup.
coffee in a cup 2. Pour in boiling water near inside edge of cup so the water swirls in a circular motion. Stop pouring about 4/5th full.
coffee in a cup 3. The result should be steam rising through a floating mass of ground coffee beans.
coffee in a cup 4. Allow the ground coffee to steam for at least two minutes.
coffee in a cup 5. Now pour hot boiling water over the floating coffee beans in a slow back and forth motion, left to right, right to left, across the entire surface of the coffee. You should be only using a trickle of hot water to do this.

Most of the coffee grains will sink to the bottom of the cup at this stage.
coffee in a cup 6. The result should be froth and bubbles covering the surface of the coffee.

Let sit for a minute.
coffee in a cup 7. Now pour in your favourite dairy (or cold water if you like it black)

Pour it in on one side of the cup until you see it rise to the surface on the other side of the cup then STOP pouring in.
coffee in a cup 8. The result of adding your favourite dairy.

More of the coffee grains will start to sink to the bottom of the cup, but not all, not yet.
coffee in a cup 9. Here you can see the last of the stubborn coffee grains floating on the surface.
Wait and watch as they begin to swirl around and slowly sink out of sight.
coffee in a cup 10. The difference in temperature between the coffee and the dairy you added will cause movement in the cup and you can see the grains disappearing below the surface. . . patience. . .
coffee in a cup 11. Compare this picture to no. 9 and you can see what's happening. . . patience. . .
coffee in a cup 12. Still swirling. . . patience. . .
coffee in a cup 13. All the grains have sunk to the bottom of the cup.
coffee in a cup 14. Take a sip of your coffee and see if you notice any coffee grains in your mouth. You shouldn't.

How's the taste? Good eh?

Note: remember there is a teaspoon full of coffee grains at the bottom of your cup so don't try to take a last big gulp at the end. You'll get used to the grains being there eventually.

The grains will rinse down the drain when you clean your cup.

Here's some of the other one's I had fun with:

One of a kind 5 ft. high bed frame
One of a kind storage tank for toilet water
One of a kind motorbicycle
One of a kind patio bench
Rackcycle Bag Carrier for Bicycles
"Twopopson" Bicycle hand shield
Upgrading Bicycle lubrication point

"An ability to create "what hasn't been done before" or enhancing the "already in use". "
