Ready Set Joe

Updated on November 13, 2013

Melitta Ready Set Joe Single Cup Coffee Brewer

Every morning I make my coffee in a Melitta Ready Set Joe Single Cup Coffee Brewer. It is the simplest way to make coffee, with no chance of getting it wrong.

It seems like about once a week I see on Facebook that someone's coffee maker has stopped working. My coffee maker will never break or quit working!

I love the Ready Set Joe! It makes the best coffee I have ever tasted! This little gadget has changed my morning routine and made my coffee ritual one of the favorite parts of my day.

After the jump I will give you my review of this Melitta single cup coffee brewer. I'll tell you why I love it so much, and there are many reasons. I give you the drawbacks, as I see them.

I will also show you how to make a great cup of coffee with the Ready Set Joe. It's really fun! You are going to love it!

How to Make a Cup of Coffee Using the Melitta Ready Set Joe Single Cup Brewer - Get Ready for a Great Cup of Coffee!!

I was going to make a video demonstrating my method for making a delicious cup of coffee using the Melitta Ready Set Joe Single Cup Brewer. Then I realized there was already a video with this demonstration!

This video shows you everything you need to know to make a great cup of coffee. The only thing I would change is that I use a larger size filter.

Get ready to make the perfect cup of coffee!!

My Favorite Coffee to Make in My Ready Set Joe!!

You can use any ground coffee in your Melitta Ready Set Joe, but this is my favorite so far.

Everyone has different tastes in coffee. I happen to enjoy this one the most of any I have tried so far. It has a very smooth taste and is never bitter. It has an excellent flavor when brewed in the Melitta Ready Set Joe Single Cup brewer.


The Filters I Use with my Melitta Ready Set Joe Single Cup Coffee Brewer

The #2 coffee filters are sized to fit perfectly in a single cup coffee brewer. They work fine. One day I accidently brought home the wrong size filters. I used them out of desperation and discovered to my delight that they worked better than the smaller ones!

I recommend using the #4 coffee filters in your Ready Set Joe. If you have had trouble with the filter slipping and allowing grounds to fall into your cup, the larger filter eliminates this problem. I have never had an issue with the #4 collapsing and making a mess like the smaller filter sometimes does.

Give it a try and see what you think!

These filters are unbleached, which is better for you and for the environment. As an added environmental benefit, the company plants four trees for each one they use producing these filters. Yay!

Red Ready Set Joe - Melitta Coffee Filter Cone

The Ready Set Joe comes in red! It adds the perfect snazzy touch to any kitchen!

Click through and read all the wonderful reviews! This seems almost too simple to work well, but it is the best way to make one or two cups of coffee hands down.


Another Coffee Cone With Great Reviews - Clever Coffee Dripper

If you like French Press coffee, but don't care for the mess it makes, give the Clever Coffee Dripper a try!

I think I would like to try this one. The difference between this coffee maker and the Ready Set Joe is that there is a valve at the bottom to hold the brewing liquid in the cone. You put in a filter, add the coffee and your almost boiling water. Then you let it brew for 3 or 4 minutes.

When ready, open the valve and allow the coffee to drip into your mug. When your cup is full, remove the cone. The valve will automatically stop the flow of coffee.

What is your favorite way to make coffee? Have you used the Ready Set Joe? What did you think of it?

      I'm not a coffee drinker, but I can see how this would be great for the office.

      Now that is definitely a kitchen gadget that I could use. If I make a large pot of coffee then I have a bad tendency to drink it. I would much rather be able to make a quick single cup of coffee as I want it. Handy.

      This simple system does let you adjust the strength easily too.

      Looks good - but I use a single cup permanent filter - when I drink coffee, I'm really a tea girl.
