Ghetto Drip/Pour Over

Inspired by a conversation with prolific blogger, Luca, and a forum poll started by yours truly, I have decided put out a challenge to the four or so people who read this blog, to see who can create the best (or maybe worst) ghetto drip station.

So here are the rules. Who can find the best/funniest/cheapest/most ingenious piece or pieces of crap to either
A) Chuck Norris (read, brake beat or crush) or
B) McGuyver (read, manipulate or engineer in some way) into a Drip station.

Single drip is okay, bonus points awarded for multiple cup drip/pour-over station, as well as practicality or sheer impracticality.

Now for those of you who don't know what this is (particularly those living in the espresso dominated market of Australia) here's one example of a finnished product.

So basically it's a fairly simple device that holds a filter (usually paper, metal or cloth) in place above another vessel designed to catch the brewed coffee, ground coffee and hot water go in the top, simple.

So get your thinking caps on, and just to help get you started here's my first design.

Or check out Koffee Kosmo's fantastic (and far more practical) effort here.
