Full Answer

Once the homemade coffee filter is ready, add the preferred amount of coffee beans and water. For best results, choose a strong paper towel with no decorative embossed patterns as these can make the coffee filter too porous. A homemade coffee filter such as this works for a regular pot of coffee. Results may vary if attempting to make a larger amount of coffee.
