The enthusiasm this product inspires never ceases to amaze me. "You can't find these ANYWHERE" is the comment we hear all the time. Just sit the coffee cone on top of your mug, add a #2 filter and a coupla spoonfuls of coffee and you are ready. Pour hot water in a steady stream to make a fresh cup of coffee. It's quick and easy. Sometimes we have red and sometimes they are black so we'll just send you what's in stock. Okay?
