I came home from spinning class yesterday to the news from Charlie that “something really sad had happened.”  I tensed up anxiously but luckily was relieved to discover that it was nothing too serious — only that our french press unfortunately cracked all the way from top to bottom, rendering it useless at the worst possible time, 4 days before exams, a time when coffee is one of Charlie’s highest priorities.  I was a little worried for his sanity/caffeine withdrawal/energy level since you can’t just go out and pick up a new coffee maker around here.

Well, it just so happens that the very next afternoon and was perusing through some blogs I hadn’t checked out in awhile,  and what do you know, I read a post that solved our problem: how to make individual coffee bags.  I learned that using coffee filters, thread/dental floss, and ground coffee, I can get a little crafty and make individual coffee bags which can be used like tea bags to brew individual cups of coffee.  Genius, perfect timing, and life saving!!!!  Problem solved!!! Phew.

  1. Clare, that’s genius. But if it doesn’t work out, you can always buy some VIA from Mark at Island Thrift. He charges about $1 US per packet 🙂
