One of the nice things about having these kinds of coffee makers is that everyone can have the coffee that they want. Or the tea. Or the hot cocoa. Anyhow, it seems to work for us.
Hubby got one of these shelve things to hold the coffee/tea/cocoa and I love it. It doesn't take up any more space than the coffeemaker and I don't have a lot of counter space so that is important to me. It also holds a lot.
See, it holds a total of 30 cups. One of the bad things that I don't like about these coffee makers is the cost per cup. The coffee and tea is pretty strong and cost per cup can be as much as $.70 per cup. Hubby looks for sales and gets that cost down to $.50 per cup. Still, that is a lot for this Scottish lady.
It's a large measuring cup and fits just right, then I press the largest cup possible and brew that. Then I press the same cup size again and brew it again. And to make sure I get all the coffee possible out each K-cup I then press the smallest size last. All the coffee is blended together, I add my cream and sweetener and I get 2 full travel cups plus a little to have right away. None of it is too strong, none of it is too weak, it's all "Just Right!"
I figure this way that $.70 per cup coffee is down to between $.23-$.24 each.
Now that makes my morning coffee worth it.
With the cost of everything going up - How do you save on everyday items?
