Preferably, a heat seal filter paper is used and the pleats are adhered by the heat to retain shape. The receptacle is inserted into an adapter and brewing material is placed into the receptacle. The cover is folded over the rim and an adapter lid is attached to the adapter. The adapter lid and body sandwich the cover and receptacle rim to hold the filter paper cup against the lid to pack the brewing material against the lid and facilitate injection of hot water into the brewing material.
