I have a bone to pick with coffee filters.

I would prefer to buy the non-bleached filters because I do believe you end up getting trace amounts of the bleaching agent in your coffee.

But the unbleached filters are atleast 3x higher priced... shouldnt they be less expensive since not bleaching them would make production cheaper? They dont have to use bleach and they dont have to take the extra step in production.

I guess it's the same logic as organic vs non organic? Maybe its harder to make correctly.

I've only been to Springfield a couple times but I enjoyed both visits. Would visit again.

And my life would suck without coffee filters.

My guess has always been that they know most people wanting to make the healthier choice will pay more for the healthier product.

But the price is so out of whack that I'll just go ahead and drink my bleach water.

Pretty darn well laid out city in my opinion. Easy to get around and lots of diversity in the businesses. It was a rival turned love affair for me.


I hadn't thought about the unbleached Easy6, have to be worth more due to lower volume maby (badgirl spellin)?

I had a great time at one of them. Would host again.

Got a new coffee maker and some Peaberry (because they keep you going) Kona coffee beans for Christmas. I now make the finest cup of coffee this side of Kansas Expressway.

Coffee filters are so universally useful.

You can use them to make coffee, clean water in a survival situation, filter meth, prove you are Jewish as a head piece and hold an Amish woman's hair in place.

I have a couple that came with our coffee pots, but I never use them. The minimal improvement in the brewed coffee (if any) isn't enough to offset the PITA factor of cleaning it. Unbleached Melitta filters work just fine for my needs.

Quick rinse does mine. Probably an additional 15 seconds over paper. And it never collapses and fills the decanter with grinds.

I spend less time on it than I do when I rinse the decanter. Plus I never run out of filters and have to go buy only filters.

A $2 package of filters lasts me about a year and if you get the container seated correctly, it never fills the pot with grinds for me. To be fair though, my wife won't even make it anymore because she can't seem to get it right.

She uses a Keurig.

Get a French press and do away with altogether. I call it a freedom press.

I have been to that hardware store and agree. We learned a lot about alternative heat sources from them before we made our purchase.

I think Springfield is just right for our big quarterly shopping trip to Sam's. We hit multiple stops when we go and it is very easy to get around.

The health care area was also a very nice surprise when we were there last week.

One thing I have learned after living in Southern Missouri for a while now is that you are in good shape if you are dealing with the natives, it is the transplants like us that can be the problem.

Bleached or unbleached, both work well during the meth manufacturing process.

Seriously? They are used in that process? I am surprised they are so easy to get then.

One of our son in laws needed some sinus relief a few years ago, he is from Texas, and it was a major deal to acquire some of that type of medicine. It was an all day deal since we were pretty new down here.

Springfield and Nixa are just about the same city. Republic too. It's all part of our Metroplex. LOL

I use my French press every weekend and it's awesome. During the week I use my Keurig style maker with the refillable filters because I don't have enough time in the morning to do the French press.

Springfield is a poorer, Missouri version of Overland Park.

That being said, I wasn't unhappy living there for the better part of a decade. If Classic Rock Coffee and Hudson Hawk could open up KC locations I'd be thrilled.

Couldn't wait to get the hell out of there. Bunch of conservative backwater rednecks. Just like my family was.

It's a lot different now than when I grew up. Many more pockets of non-rednecks. It still doesn't have a damn thing that distinguishes it from any other city.

Amazing economy in that area. It has stayed in reasonably good shape during the downturns, lots of old old money mixed with the new younger affluence. Plus its a really neat grounded area.

The economy in Springfield is one of the things I am impressed with. It seems to be well diversified with significant national chains home based there. Bass Pro and Oreilly's being two of them.

We really liked the Gourmet Taco Company that has now moved and changed their name to Great American Taco Company due to their plan to franchise nationally.
