There are times when you need a quick coffee fix with no coffee machine available. Instead of resorting to instant coffee, here’s a quick Nespresso hack that will give you the flavour and texture you crave.
This ingeniously simple coffee hack comes from a Lifehacker reader called Cam. We’ll let him take it from here:
I just thought I’d share with you a small coffee hack I came up with. I went away over Easter, and I wanted a way to still have decent-tasting coffee without too much fuss.
I had the idea of taking a box of Aldi coffee pods, and a plunger. It worked perfectly! You have to be careful cutting open the pod, but inside is exactly the right amount of ground coffee for a one-cup coffee plunger. It tasted no different than making it in the machine.
So that’s my idea: take a box of Aldi coffee pods camping for quick, single-serving measures of coffee for my plunger.
Thanks Cam! We’ll definitely be employing this hack the next time we’re staying at a hotel with crappy coffee facilities. Naturally, the same principle should also work with other single-serve coffee pods so just pick your brand of choice.
