EDC coffee? Okay, not exactly EDC. Yes, I have a Thermos of coffee that I take to work every weekday, but in this case I'm referring to 3oz. single-serve coffee bags (like tea bags) I like to have on hand. I keep a few on hand at home and some more in a food bag in the vehicle. At home, I keep a few in the freezer for those times when I get up in the morning and find that there's a power outage (there is NO life before coffee). Doesn't happen that often, but when it does, it's such a relief to put the kettle on the gas stove for some hot water, dig out the coffee bags, and have a couple cups of coffee while figuring out what other improvisations I'm going to have to make to get on with the daily routine. (BTW, I find "instant" or "freeze-dried" coffee to be just outright nasty.) In the vehicle, the food bag has some items (oatmeal, dried soup, hot chocolate, etc.) that, worst case, can be prepared with the aid of my JetBoil just in case I should find myself somewhere I had not expected to be for a day or two. Anyway, I went to update my supply of consumables and when I looked for "Maxwell House Coffee Singles, 3oz, 19/Box" I discovered that they had been discontinued (thanks, once again, Kraft Foods!). When I checked my local grocery store, there was shelf after shelf of K-cups, which I found disturbing. Those convenient, little plastic cups are neither recyclable nor bio-degradeable. Apparently, millions of those plastic cups are being sold each year and they ain't goin' nowhere for next thousand years or so, and we're finding that when plastics do break down, they just become tinier and more pervasive. With the coffee bags, those who compost can just toss them on the pile, not really a problem. The rest of us can toss them out in the trash without a lot guilt. https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2015/03/the-abominable-k-cup-coffee-pod-environment-problem/386501/ Yes, I know there are "re-usable" K-cup baskets for use with your favorite brew, but that's not a lot different from a conventional drip coffee maker and personally I prefer to brew up a whole pot (though I know others prefer smaller portions). Still have the problem of what to do when there is no power. So what's your take on the K-cup phenomenon?
