Have you seen my bagel?

Some might call me a caffeine addict, I prefer coffee achiever. I drink strong black coffee and plenty of it. I can't indulge in the truly gourmet coffee and still afford to keep a roof over my head, and I'm not about to drink the swill they sell pre-ground at the grocery store. Trader Joe's French Roast beans fall right in the middle, and comes in these cool cans:


John Starr came up with a nifty idea that solves two of our breakfast-related dilemmas: how best to store bagels, and what to do with the empty coffee cans:

And make your own!

  1. Neat idea! Do the bagels pick up the coffee flavor?

    We slice the bagels, then freeze them. They seem to store better that way than at room temperature.

  2. Thanks Melissa! No, you can get rid of the coffee smell - rinse out the can and let it air dry well. The bagels do keep longer if you wrap them in a bag and then place them in the can.

    I freeze sliced bread, comes back to life nicely in the toaster oven!
