So I’m a coffee achiever. I’ve gotta have it. And I don’t take any chances when I travel.
If we travel by car, I have a small Mr. Coffee pot that I take, along with coffee and filters.
A few years ago, hotels started putting pod coffee makers in their rooms. I’m not a cup at a time gal and this did present a challenge to me since when you fly in the US, it’s a little harder to take the 4 cup pot and most rooms don’t have kettles for hot water.
So Macgyvering was born.
And it’s been mostly successful.
Here’s how you do it.
You’ll need to bring your filters and your coffee.
Take the filter and tear it so it will fit into the pod space.
Hopefully, you’ll get a nice, delicious cup of coffee instead of nasty hotel pod coffee.
Now, I must caution you. The rectangular pod makers are easier for me to use since I like strong coffee. This was my first experience with a round pod and it just didn’t let me use as much coffee as I would have liked. Still it was a better cup of coffee.
If you overfill the coffee in this maker, you could be surprised early morning style by an explosion that will send you pushing your chair backwards but laughing nonetheless.
So there you have it. How to have great coffee while staying in a hotel. Macgyver it.
