So I bought my wife a Kuerig single serve coffee maker for Christmas, but I didn’t realize how much space the k-cups took up. So, I set out to buy a storage solution only to find that accessories for Kuerig machines are overpriced! So after looking at the many solutions available out there, I came up with this based primarily on two requirements: 1. a small footprint 2. designed using materials already on hand ($0 cost for you math people). I would count this as a success and the wife loves it! This case is constructed of 1/2” birch ply with dadoes cut into them for the trays made of 1/4” birch ply to slide into. The one thing that I would change would be to make it a little wider so that I can put two cups side by side (so each shelf would hold 12 instead of six). If you own one of these then you understand the need for it.

Just got the coffee maker for xmas and I love your fix for space. I’m already looking at the mods for the maker, so the coffee tastes better. It’s a fine machine for someone who seldom drinks coffee. As a retired trucker I like my coffee large and in charge.

That’s a great idea. I have one as well but the wife already bought the spinning carousel for the cups. However, I spotted the vitamix next to it. We have that as well and absolutely LOVE it. Best $450 I ever spent!

What is the hole diameter? My wife bought one for a gift and wants me to make a holder but I don’t have any cups.

-- Matt CueBall Rosendaul. I don't think I've ever had a cup of coffee that didn't have cat hair or sawdust in it.
