4 Simple Coffee Hacks To Free Up Your Mornings

For most Americans, coffee is an integral part of the morning but it can sometimes take more time than we’d like. Cleaning up after brewing a pot or standing in line at the coffee shop can slow us down on busy mornings. To get your day started off right, it’s important to have a smooth and efficient routine. These 4 easy hacks will simplify your morning coffee routine so you can focus on getting started on the rest of your day.

1. Use an electric kettle to boil water

If you’re boiling water to brew coffee, electric kettles are by far the fastest way and are very convenient and affordable. Traditional stove-top tea kettles may look nice, however, tests have found that using an electric kettle can cut boiling time in half. To save even more time, make sure to only boil the amount of water you need. Less water = less time to boil. Go on and invest in one! You’ll be amazed at how useful it is to have hot water at the push of a button. Here’s a glass kettle from Amazon that we absolutely love. It’s BPA-free and will look amazing on your counter!

2. Minimize clean-up

The least fun part of any task in the kitchen is always the clean-up. For example, brewing coffee with the French press or traditional drip coffee machines, leaves you with having to clean the filters and coffee pots after use. Pod-based systems are convenient but actually require regular cleaning and de-scaling — many people aren’t even aware of how much bacteria is harbored in their water receptacles. A new and alternative way to brew is One Fresh Cup, created especially with simplicity in mind. They’re unique single-serve ready-packed filters that you brew straight into your cup, and toss when you’re done. There’s literally no clean up which means less time in the kitchen and more time to get started with your day.

3. Make it ahead of time

While a hot fresh cup of joe is the most common way to start the day, drinking a refreshing iced coffee in the morning is also a delicious way to get your dose of caffeine. As part of your nightly routine, make a whole pot or even a single cup, pour it straight into a portable mug and put it in the fridge overnight. In the morning, simply grab and go! Even better, if you seal the brewed coffee properly, it can stay fresh in the fridge for up to a week.

4. Coffee ice cubes

This is such a fun and useful coffee hack, everyone should try it at least once. Brew some really strong coffee or even some cold brew (which is typically a concentrate) and fill up a couple of ice cube trays with the brew. Once frozen, that’s when the magic begins! Pop these little coffee cubes into hot water or even hot milk for an instant cup of joe. Genius right? Or put a few in your iced coffee to keep your morning brew cold and strong for longer.

The Simple Way to Brew

As our days have become increasingly busy, and everything seems to get more and more complicated, wouldn’t it be nice to simplify life just a little bit? Even if it was just one thing… Like coffee, for example.

“Simplifying life” was our motivation behind creating One Fresh Cup. Our mission was to distill the traditionally complicated pour over brewing method to something that can be done quickly and easily. Our filters are single serve and pre-packed so all you really need to do is pour over hot water. One Fresh Cup is perfect for the times you’re at home alone, at the office or out camping with no coffee machine, or when you just don’t feel like going to the coffee shop. It’s the quality of a pour over, the ease of a drip machine and the convenience of Keurig. Yet there are no machines, no pods, no pots and literally nothing to clean up. This sounds very much like a brewing revolution!

Having sold over 200 million packs in Asia and Europe since 2005, we are so excited to share One Fresh Cup with you in North America. Check out our store where you can choose from 7 coffee blends and 2 teas, and there are even more exciting products on the way. There’s also free shipping to the 48 contiguous United States, so why not try One Fresh Cup today!
