Coffee to Go: Ingenious Packet is Self-Stirring Caffeine Fix

Carrying little packets of instant coffee everywhere you go is the best way to make sure you’re never without a caffeine fix. But when you’re on the go, you might find yourself with a cup and hot water – but no way to stir your cuppa.

The Spoonin Instant Coffee Stick is a concept that could save your tail the next time you get stranded without a spoon. It’s a packet of instant coffee that, once empty, converts into an impromptu stirrer.

The top part of the packet tears off to expose the coffee crystals inside, then the back seam of the package sort of unfolds to create a rigid stirring stick.

In order to make this concept clean and not totally disgusting, you would probably want to keep a handful of the coffee sticks in a plastic baggie inside your bag or pocket – otherwise you might end up with a steaming hot cup of pocket lint.
