Stupid K-Cups and a neat DIY way to solve my conundrum.
Tuesday, July 09, 2013
Just a random blurb for those of you who have one of those thingies. I purchased a couple of refillable coffee cups to be environmentally friendly and most importantly, I was able to keep up on my passion for Peets Coffee.
See, last year there was no such thing as Peets Coffee in a K-Cup single use package, and I simply would not be denied my daily fix. Of course they finally released Peets in K-Cup form last week in my tiny grocery store (doh!).
Alas, I am still able to give big green love to the environment by not using loads of unnecessary plastic, right?
Oh yeah, the drama. Those refillable K-Cup thingies don't stand upright. They just don't! So they roll around the counter, sprinkling Peets Coffee scented goodness all over. And that stuff ain't cheap (Gah!).
My solution? Shot glasses! Everyone seems to have a pair of these, and (hopefully) isn't using them often. At least I hope not. I mean, us Spark peeps try to keep it healthy... (!). Anyway, I pre-filled my K-cup thingie and plopped it in a shot glass so that it would be ready the next morning when I waddle to the machine and star to bang at it like a cave woman, complete with grunts and wild hair.
Umm...yay shot glasses? Maybe not, but you know what I mean. Yay for DIY coffee perch-like devices? Sure! Hope this is helpful to someone.
Mmmm coffee. Nom nom nom : )
