Tired of finding coffee grounds in the bottom of your pot? Here's a tip to keep them in the basket, where they belong!
When you set up your grounds basket, instead of using just the one filter under the grounds, add another to cover the grounds.
The top filter will help to keep the grounds from splashing over the edges of the bottom filter and into your pot of coffee.
You don't have to use two of the exact type filters, if you have a coffee maker that requires use of the cone shape - which are more expensive. Just use a cheaper ruffled filter to cover the grounds. Nest it around the mound of coffee grounds and press against the side of the basket.
You will be enjoying pot after pot of grounds-free coffee. Enjoy!

It's so good to find somebody who agrees with me on this! I have done it for years and have tried to pass the tidbit on to others only to be told it was a waste of the second filter! I say, for the cost of the filters, it is a very inexpensive, not to say easy, way to avoid those awful tasting grounds!
