The next time you're traveling, make and bring along your own single-serve coffee so you can enjoy your favorite cup of joe no matter where you are. These are easy to put together and travel well, packed in a plastic zip-top bag. And this works fantastically with loose tea, too.
It's as simple as filling a coffee filter with two to three tablespoons of coffee grounds. You can even add a dash of cinnamon or drop of vanilla to flavor your coffee.
Secure with a length of cotton string, and you're set for making coffee. Simply drop this single-serve coffee satchel in a mug, cover with hot water, let steep for a few minutes, then remove. Follow the same directions for making homemade tea bags, and you can enjoy your favorite drink anywhere.
