DIY Hacked-up mod drip coffee maker to get hot water and make some good and tasty loose leaf tea

UPDATE: this doesnt really work due to the following:

… you still get coffee taste in the cup because the
1. coffee vapors condensate on the cover drip back into the water chamber and dry around there…
2. people use the dirty caraffe to refill the water back in the machine.

😦 oh well.

victim of the day, awaits patiently for customers…

remove coffee parts. fill your cup with water and drop it in the tank. don’t turn it on yet.

easy choice #1= stick the cup under the hole (pressing it upwards so water does not drip around). requiring some muscle you got to hold the cup there until all the hot water gets dripp’ed into your cup. *complications: 1. the filter holder can have some residual coffee dried up , so you could get coffee tasting water… and 2: burning of the hand by the hot water, or even breaking the machine or shorting out your entire office or building, requiring the electric company to come and fix the breakers.

easier lazy choice #2= turn the drip head and stick your cup inside the machine. turn the drip back above your cup, turn on the machine, and your clean hot water is done, no muscle required. *complications: fracture/break of the drip head (you’ll have to replace the coffee maker, or just play it like you dont know how it got broken).
