So would making bad coffee be grounds for divorce? #-o

I have a keurig coffee maker. My husband loves it. We have the stainless cup that takes our own coffee. I have never been a real coffee drinker. I am the latte kind, lots of milk with my coffee. But since learning it is good for you, I try and have a cup a day or at least every other day.

FYI paper filters retain some of the oils which give coffee it's flavor, gold or stainless steel is better.

I was in Germany last fall and stayed at the German equivalent of Hilton. There I saw an amazing little machine--my first Keurig coffee maker. These things blow any other method of making coffee out of the water.

Image

A sealed K-Cup is placed in the machine and punctured top and bottom. Superheated water is forced though the cup at pressure, then hot air blows through the cup, drying it. You are left with a PERFECT (precisely measured and precisely delivered) cup of coffee with absolutely no mess.


I want the old red perk. I loves it.

Image


Never seen anything that well done for making coffee. Made what Americans use in hotel (foil pouches with filter bags) look like 1950's percolators.

Image

I had to get one. I love it. One at work and one at home.

But it wasn't long until the cost started to get to me. At about 50 cents a cup it adds up!

I gave some thought to re-using the cups.

They sell a reusable cup for about $20, but it is reputed to make weak coffee due to a small coffee capacity.

I decided to hack the existing cups for free.

Take a used cup:

Image

If you just peel off the top foil...

Image

you reveal the used coffee.

Dump it, rinse the cup and let it dry.

Image

Image

When you want some coffee get a scoop of Yuban...

Image

get some Tin Foil (the good stuff)

Image

wrap the top tightly.

Stick it in and brew!

Ready to use over and over again.

Image

The coffee maker is going to punch a hole each time and I have cups with about 5 holes in them... I don't think its a problem, but recently realized that all I have to do is put the recycled K-cup in with the existing hole at the 12 o'clock position and it neatly its in place so as to use the same hole each time.
:lol:

Drops that perfect cup of coffee from 50 cents to 10 cents. 8)

Enjoy.
