I’m just going to say it. I have a Keurig coffee maker, and it’s one of my favorite kitchen appliances. My husband has an erratic schedule, and I was always drinking reheated, burnt coffee. He also doesn’t like coconut, so one of my favorite coffee flavors was out. But with my new single-serve buddy, I can have a fresh cup of whatever flavor of coffee I want, whenever I want it. Given my addiction to my morning cup of joe, that’s a big deal.
The only issue I have with it is the waste. Each of those single serve coffees leaves us with a little empty cup to throw away. I knew there had to be something that could be done with them, and thanks to some creative crafters, I have some new ideas to try out.
