Coffee is basically the glue that keeps us college kids together. Whether we’re trying to finish that paper we procrastinated on, or trying to stay awake during that 8 am, coffee is there to help.

Check out these 6 coffee hacks that will make you an even bigger coffee addict then you already are.

Ice Cubes

If you’re basic and like your iced coffee from Starbucks, but you’re running low in the money department, its time to make your own cold brew.

Honestly, coffee ice cubes? I don’t understand why everyone isn’t doing this.

Cool Whip

Whip it right in with your coffee. It adds creamy sweet goodness to your coffee that milk just can’t do.

Coffee Grounds for Eye Bags

Because in college we don’t get enough sleep and this little hack will keep you lookin’ fresh for that 8 am. Just spread a bit of your leftover coffee grounds under your eyes and let it sit for about 15 minutes.

Don’t be wasteful. The plants need some love too.

Bulletproof Coffee


This strange combo referred to as “Bulletproof” coffee is quickly becoming a new fad. It’s best to have when you are skipping out on breakfast and need something quick to prepare you for the day.

The key here is to use grass fed butter (like KerryGold).

1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil blended together with 1 cup of coffee. Boom. You’re bulletproof.
