Filled Coffee Filters

To save time making coffee in the morning, I rely on this handy trick I learned as a waitress. I measure out the correct amount of ground coffee into a coffee filter. Then I put another filter on top of that and measure coffee into that one, too. I continue to stack and fill coffee filters until I have a pile that I can store in an empty coffee can with a resealable lid. In the morning, all I have to do is place one of these filled filters and some water in my coffee machine. —Deborah Schueler, Old Forge, New York
