Most times instant coffee just won’t cut it, and what you really need is a filtered brew.
And now coffee fans can get their filtered caffeine fix on the go thanks to the world’s first disposable coffee machine.
The product works like a teabag for coffee and promises to brew a quality cup just by adding hot water to the bag.

'Our coffee bag is to coffee what the wine bottle is to wine,' claims Danish designer Ulrik Rasmussen
Danish designer Ulrik Rasmussen came up with the idea after studying teabags after running out of coffee filters for his home coffee machine.
He has spent the last nine years developing the product, which has just launched in Britain, and says it could revolutionise the way we drink coffee.

Mr Rasmussen, 46, from Middelfart in Denmark, said: 'It all started one morning when I went to make myself a cup of coffee and realised I had run out of filters for my machine.
'I needed my coffee fix and I was getting annoyed that it was so difficult to make a decent cup of coffee.
'I cut up a few tea bags and put coffee grounds inside them and found there was some potential for a similar product so I started doing research into it.
