Handy Tip #4

I'm a coffee lover.  I have a coffeemaker with a timer on it so that my java is ready in the morning as soon as I step into my kitchen.  Believe me, no one wants to be around me before that cup or two is in me.

For those of you who don't own a coffeemaker with a timer....well, all I can say have my sympathy.  Maybe this tip will help you to get that first cup a little bit quicker.

This is what I keep my coffee in.  It fits into the drawer that sits below my coffeemaker.

Don't let the emptiness fool you.  I have plenty more in the can down in the cabinet.

Take as many filters loose as you have room for in your container.  I like to do seven because that means I only have to do this once a week.

Go ahead and put the right amount of coffee into each of the filters.  Tamp or shake each of them down to roughly even out the bottoms.

Stack each of them together and put into your container.

Now, all you have to do is take one out and insert it into your coffeemaker.  This is especially convenient when you have to continually make more pots of coffee, like unexpected gatherings.

I guarantee that if you start doing this, it will become a habit that you can't live without doing it.
