Hey, you gotta use water to clean out the coffee grounds. At least, I do. And I try to conserve and manage my water as much as possible.

I guess I need to clarify. My coffee pot is a stovetop percolater, so no filtration other than the basket. It takes a bit of cleaning to get the grounds out of everything. Too much hassle for me, so I'll stick to instant.

I have a little 4 cup drip machine, but it's way up north. And my inverter's not big enough to run it. And since quiet time here is from 10PM to 6AM, I'm just not going to wait until 6 to go out, start the genny, and make some coffee. When I get up, I want coffee NOW!, regardless of the time.

I did this mod. Just a note for others, be careful when you drill the holes. My suggestion is to drill a small pilot hole and not let the bit go in more than what is nessessary to drill the hole. Then stick one of the screws in the hole and wiggle it around to see if there is a wiring harness running in the path of where the drill bit will go to drill the other hole. If so gently wiggle the screw to move the harness out of the way. Then drill the other hole. Wrap the screw with black tape to help prevent chafing during the final install. Knowing this before you start may help you. It worked for me because on hole #3 on my x23b I discovered a large harness running over the sink cabinet which I would have drilled right thru.

Just put a coffee filter inside the basket before adding grounds. This will keep most of the grounds contained.

Yeah, I guess I could poke a hole through the middle of the filter to run the percolation tube through. Make it small and tight enough and it shouldn't leak many of the grounds. I'll try that!

We do that, but the last cup has a slurry full of grounds. We're currently using the small filters and thinking that the grounds are floating over the top of filter. I'm going to try the next size up to see if that larger overhang will keep more grounds out. Plus, I do use alot of grounds hoping for stronger coffee.
