So, you’ve finally got your Keurig coffee maker, but now how are you going to store all of those Keurig K cups?
There are a wide variety of ways to do this. Sure, you can be frugal and just keep the K cups in their box and store that box in the pantry. I keep my overflow in there, but maybe that’s just one more step you’d rather not have to take…
Some people opt for the spinning carousel. It keeps 24 cups neatly stacked right next to the machine. This is a good option if you have one of the smaller Keurig coffee maker machines.
If I was still working in an office, I would have the small bright yellow machine in my cube along with the carousel of coffees. It would be fun to spin the thing around while pretending to listen in on a webinar while unknowingly annoying my coworkers. Then again, I might be too distracted by the possibility of good coffee in my future to get any work done.
K Cups: One Weird Trick
At home I have a bigger Keurig coffee maker, and of course counter space is at a premium, so I opted for the drawer under the Keurig. I like this because the drawer can hold a large quantity of K cups. I did find a way to squeeze a few more in there. The trick? Flip half of the cups over. I was always annoyed because there was about half a K cup length of space leftover. Seems like a waste! I’m not sure what inspired me to flip the K cups over, but I tried it and voila! No more wasted space.
Of course, I only do this when the entire column is the same type of coffee. It would very disappointing, on groggy morning, to think I’m making a delicious cup of Peet’s Major Dickinson dark roast only to realize I made iced tea…without the ice.
