The Ingenious Amazon Find That’ll Create Storage for Your K-Cups Out of Thin Air
K-cups and coffee pods certainly changed the game when it comes to making coffee at home. But as with every great invention, this technology has its pitfalls — like where to store all those darn pods! We went looking for a solution on Amazon, and after scoping out all the options, we found our hands-down favorite. Meet the Coffeekeepers Under-Cabinet Coffee K-Cup Holder. This organizational find keeps your K-cups out of the way yet within easy reach. How? It attaches to the underside of your cabinets, taking advantage of a few inches of space that would otherwise go unused (we love products that create space out of thin air!).
Crafted from commercial-grade steel, this K-pod rack is sturdy and well made yet requires zero drilling (renters, I’m looking at you). To install it, simply use the pre-applied adhesive strips and included screws to attach the two arms to the underside of your cabinet or shelf, and you’re done! A swinging mechanism lets you store the tray virtually out of sight when you don’t need it yet keep it easily accessible for whenever you need your caffeine fix. “This coffee pod holder is awesome!” shares one user. “It fits all brands. I buy the Costco Keurig coffee pods and they fit perfectly. This also folds up very discreetly under the cabinet. You would have to bend over to see it. It’s very nice and unobtrusive.”
So it’s definitely a space saver, but does it really help keep counters clear? According to several satisfied customers, absolutely! “I don’t like to have a lot of kitchen counter clutter so I was so happy to find this product,” comments one. “I love this thing so much that I bought a second one so both my husband and I can have our own coffees in our own holders. The design is sleek and I love being able to have a bunch of different flavored coffees right by my Keurig without having a pile of different boxes on the counter.” Each rack is designed to hold up to 24 pods — and that goes for way more than just coffee. From hot cocoa to mulled cider, if it comes in a pod, you can store it here.
“After using the product for over three years, I can definitely say that though pricey for what it is, it holds up very well,” comments one long-time user. (Bonus — it’s on major sale right now on Amazon.) “There’s literally no complaint from me; just make sure you install properly.” And that’s the word of caution that lots of reviewers agree on: Since the adhesive is very strong, make sure you know exactly where you want to put it before you stick it on. “Be careful when mounting under a cabinet. The mounting tapes provided are extremely sticky and don’t allow any re-positioning once pressed into place, even with light pressure… Can’t blame the product for my lack of planning. Had I done it right initially, I wouldn’t have needed tools as the tape is very strong.” And as with any adhesive, be sure to clean the area with rubbing alcohol before you place anything — you can bet there’s some residual grease on there somewhere that might inhibit stickiness.
Bottom line: If you are among the many frustrated coffee drinkers in need of a discreet, space-saving, easy-to-install K-cup organization solution, add this clever find to your cart ASAP.
