Le coffee pots
(zebra and cow coffee pots by Gary Rith)
A student of mine asked last night about coffee pots. We were making tea pots, and he described his melitta coffee pot at home: the type with the cone filter used either atop a specially made pot, or a cone filter intended for use atop a mug. I said I had two kicking around, and would post them. Bonjour TOM!
The first coffee pots I made had the cone filter sitting atop the pot. The wife asked if they could be made to sit inside the rim neatly, which is what you see here. So, there are 3 items: the pot itself, you pour hot water into the cone filter, then when finished, replace the cone with the lid.
A customer on Saturday looked at these and thought the hole was quite big. That is what I have found works best.
