CoffeeStack Review

Organization is key in my house. Since I live in a small apartment, I really try to keep everything in a certain place and together to optimize the space. When I recently received a Keurig I was thrilled. I was not so thrilled that the K-cup boxes took up so much room in my pantry. I knew that I had to find a solution for better organization of the coffee. When CoffeeStack entered my life, it was a match made in heaven.

CoffeeStack is a sleek, efficient solution for coffee pod clutter. It's a K-Cup holder designed specifically for the kitchen cabinet so the consumer can free up space on the counter top and stay organized, said Lauren Greenwood, vice president of sales and marketing for YouCopia Product, Inc., maker of CoffeeStack.

This product measures just over 5 inches wide and fits in all standard kitchen cabinets. Four drawers hold a total of 40 K-Cups, making CoffeeStack the highest-capacity K-Cup organizer of its size on the market. It's easy to use too. Simply pull the drawer out until it's extended and lower it to a resting position at eye-level. Since all of the K-Cups labels face out, it's easy to select the coffee of choice. Refill with new K-Cups as needed by dropping each pod into an empty older. The black and silver colors of this unit match the most popular coffee machine models. No assembly is necessary. Non-skid rubber feet hold Coffeestack securely in place in the cabinet and units can be stacked.

This unit is beyond perfect for me. I have a sick K-cup obsession at the moment. I have 11 boxes in my house and my boyfriend has banned me from buying anymore until we go through a majority of them. I'm sorry but how can I resist flavors like cinnamon bun, gingerbread, and chocolate glazed donut? I can't! As you can imagine, those boxes take up a lot of space in my cabinets. I love that the unit fits directly inside my kitchen cabinet with no issues at all. It doesn't take up a lot of space at all. I love the attractive silver and black design of it too. It's very modern. Anybody who has stainless steel appliances will love that the unit matches.

I had no problem putting the K-cups in the holders in each drawer. Each K-cup fit perfectly and the drawer closed with ease after I was done filling it. I pulled the drawer open and closed and it did not get stuck at all. The drawers slide down with ease when you want a K-cup that's in the back of the drawer too. I have tea in the first drawer, hot chocolate in the second drawer, and coffee K-cups in the last two drawers. I love that it's organized this way. It makes my life so much easier to open a drawer and select the cup I want, rather than rifling through all of the boxes and making my cabinets messy when I'm looking for the K-cup I want. Just refill the holders after you take a coffee and you'll be good to go! I truly love this product. This first unit does not hold irregular shaped K-cups properly. Luckily I didn't have any irregular shaped ones and all of mine fit properly. This is a design flaw that has been corrected in the newer models. This unit would make a fabulous gift for anyone with a Keurig or for someone you know who's planning on buying a Keurig. This will make their life so much easier and they will wonder how they ever lived without it.

You can buy the CoffeeStack on their website or at Bed Bath & Beyond.
