I have a Salton Iced Tea and Coffee Maker - this one:<br><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=motheringhud-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fgp%2Fproduct%2FB00004R93X%2Fqid%3D1142409409%2Fsr%3D1-1%2Fref%3Dpd_bbs_1%2F102-5659604-6970539%3F_encoding%3DUTF8%26s%3Dkitchen%26v%3Dglance%26n%3D284507" target="_blank">http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...lance&n=284507</a><br><br>
Anyway, I've made iced tea in it but never coffee. I'd like to try it out. Do any of you have this product or a similar one? How does one go about this? I have never made coffee of any description, just happily given my money to the fancy coffee makers. I'd like to keep more of my money. Here are my questions:<br><br>
1. What kind of filters?<br>
2. What kind of coffee?<br>
3. Sweeteners/creamers/chocolate syrups/etc - what do you use?<br>
4. How much of a learning curve can I expect as a newbie? Will I waste a pound of coffee or a cup on the way to coffee nirvana?<br><br>
Thanks for any tips you can provide!

Hmmm, does this mean I'm going to be a pioneer?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> OK I'll try it and update. I do realize the thing is a bit gadget-y, but since it was a wedding present 100 years ago and we're still using it (though so far only for tea) I figure I'll keep getting as much use out of it as possible. If anyone else checks this thread and has some insights or experience let me know!
