O.K. So I am back from Anaheim. I found some pretty cool things and I also saw some things I wasn't to sure about. There is a new company that is selling lids for disposable paper cups. These lids have a filter built into them. You use it just like a french press except its disposable. I am going to post pics below. I think the only flaw is that after you brew a french press you are supposed to transfer it to a carafe. Sort of defeats the purpose of the disposable cup...so I waited till I could drink the coffee and it had been sitting/cooling in the grounds...over extraction?? Oh well....will post more on what I found later.

I did a demo for a co-worker....they pointed out something I didn't think of. What if you drink your coffee with stuff in it. It's hard to pour milk, sugar or whiskey through that wee little drinking hole :eek:

Fascinating! Goes against the "green" no plastic/no garbage movement but very innovative.

Must also add a heck of a $ to a cup of Java, no?

I could be wrong but I think they said something like $.32 per cup...I still do not like the fact that the coffee keeps extracting as you drink it....
