I think we can all agree that coffee is fantastic, right? Well, here’s something that will definitely be on my Christmas list this year.
The masterminds at ThinkGeek are selling a “Grow Your Own Coffee” kit – complete with coffee bean seeds, a miniature greenhouse for your windowsill, and planting mixture that you’ll need to get started. While your attempts might not be Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts-level amazing, it’ll still be nice to drink something you (kind of) created.
The product boasts that you should be able to see your coffee sprouting in about a month, which isn’t too shabby. Plus, it’s a good way to boast in front of friends. Imagine the situation: You invite a friend over for some coffee. He or she comments on the brand. You say, with your paws around a classy mug, “Oh. This is my own brand. I grew the beans myself.” They’re in shock and awe, and curse the tomato plants* that make them so normal. Totally could happen!
Even better, this little quirky project is currently available for $9.99 over at ThinkGeek’s website. You can’t say no to that.
* No offense to the tomato plant gardeners. I haven’t been able to grow a tomato plant in years, and this little jab was just a product of my jealousy.
