Grounds in Coffee Almost Ruined my Morning…Almost

Has this ever happened to you? A foggy-headed morning, you shuffle into the kitchen, set the coffee filter perfectly into the coffee pot, despite being groggy, and you press start. A few agonizing minutes coupled with the glorious smell of a strong, dark brew, and it’s ready. Finally.

You stir in your whatever- additives: cream, milk, sugar, sweetener. And then, those pesky little grounds rise to the surface, taunting you.

Boy, did they make me mad this morning! I fumbled for another coffee filter, opened the canister to make another cup, and the coffee-fix-it gods descended upon me. A filter! A fine sieve.

Coffee hack 101: when you get unwanted grounds in your coffee, find a sieve. Save the coffee!

See. Who needs coffee for brilliant morning ideas? It was the threat of not having the cup I wanted that inspired me, I guess.

Happy morning coffee drinker, my favorite Shakespearean Insults mug, pre make-up and all!
