There are many reasons why I love Thailand (and Japan). Some of them come in interesting products that we don’t have (or that I have not seen) in the West. For example this drip coffee set.
Each of the 12 bags is sealed to keep the ground coffee fresh and up to standard.
Once out of the box and the bag, you pull the paper sides away from the teabag like package that holds the coffee. You rip open the top and a wonderful coffee smell is going to fill your kitchen.
In the meantime you set the water to boil.
Once the thing is set up in the cup, it looks like a mini coffee maker with papier mache on the side. Exciting…
Finally, you pour the water in the bag and wait for it to drip through. On the first text I used this rather wide and broad cup, but I think subsequently a narrower, taller cup is probably going to work better.
Also, 1.4 deciliter is not that much water and probably should be measured (dahhh!), otherwise it is a pretty lame, see-through coffee.
But it smelled good and was a great little experiment for a Sunday afternoon.
