Ah, thus speaketh a man who takes his running h & c for granted.  Sagacity
in our case dictates  the much simpler method of putting boiling water and
ground coffee into a (glazed  porcelain) beaker, stirring and waiting for
the grounds to settle (chivvied along by a little judicious spoon work)
before dispensing into cups. Makes both better coffee and for much less
washing up.

He could be making his grounds rounds even without a pistol.
