I consider myself a morning person. I’m cheerful about 30 minutes after I get up 😉 . I can eat “breakfast foods” for breakfast lunch and dinner and be completely content with it.
One of the best parts of my morning is coffee. Every day I have one cup. I savor it. For my wedding shower, I got a Keurig coffeemaker. I love it! A perfectly proportioned, piping hot cup of coffee with the touch of a button. The only thing I didn’t like about it is how much the K-Cups cost. At $12 per box of 18 K-Cups (each K-Cup gives you 1 cup of coffee), it wasn’t exactly a bargain. I know it’s less thank buying a coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts or Starbucks, but c’mon! That’s a lot of cash over time.
I was in Bed Bath and Beyond a few weeks ago and purchase this bad boy.
What is this contraption you ask? It’s a mini coffee filter in the shape of a K-Cup. Yes mom, I know you’ve been using one of these things for years, but I just bought one recently. You were right.
I picked up a bag of ground delicious beans and spooned it into this “Solo Cup”, popped it into the coffeemaker, and poof! Perfection in my thermos 🙂
I used to do this with my regular coffee pot…
1 scoop of coffee grounds
about 3/4 teaspoon of cocoa powder (bakers cocoa)
Put them into the filter & make your coffee as usual.
It’s like 1/2 hot chocolate, 1/2 coffee A.K.A. the bomb.com
What small invention makes your day just a little sweeter (or cheaper)?
