Coffee your way
Those coffee pod machines are pretty slick. They let you make coffee easily at home, which according to smarmy personal finance people means you can save enough money each week to pay off your house and retire at 50, provided you also buy an avocado toast machine.
And while you may have been diligently making coffee at home for months (and using the extra savings to pay down your student loans—riiight?), the hot weather brings a whole new temptation: iced coffee.
Coffee + ice really doesn’t seem like too complicated a formula, but it’s surprisingly difficult to get right. The coffee melts the ice and the ice waters down the coffee and then you try to save it by adding more ice or adding more coffee and suddenly it’s clear why we were willing to pay four bucks for this stuff at the drive-through in the first place.
Well, it doesn’t have to be that way. Today’s deal gives you options. The hot/cold pods will let you brew hot coffee in your pod machine, or just dump the room temperature concentrate into your cup for instant goodness that won’t melt your ice. You can also choose the six-pack of bottled cold concentrate, which will make up to eight cups per bottle. Tell THAT to your financial advisor.
While you’re at it, keep in mind that paid off mortgages and early retirement are so 2010. The real choice for sophisticated investors looking to park their coffee savings is right here.
