Do you miss the little coffee scooper they used to put in the can.

Yes it's better for the environment, and I could buy my own, but I haven't. I use a spoon to scoop coffee and it's me annoying all of sudden.

  • I LOVE those scoopers! They are the perfect measurement for coffee! My mother saved a ton of them from when they used to be in the containers, and she was kind enough to share with me! I just wash it after each coffee can :)

  • I don't drink coffee, but we used to get them with the lemonaide and koolaide mix. In fact, I would sometimes buy those just because we wanted more scoops. I use them for home - made cocoa mix and also as little cookie cutters for these little bite sized sandwich cookies that we make, as well as for a ton of other stuff.

    LOL - we only have a couple left, and I guard them like crazy :-)

  • Yes, I don't even drink it but dh does. I went out and found a small canister that has a little wooden scoop. We take the coffee out of the store container and keep it in the new one. Try Ross or Marshalls to find one. I think mine was from a broken cannister set so I only paid for the 1.

  • YES!!! i use to make my dad's coffee after him and my mom split, and those scoops was great. i didn't have to worry about how much to put in because it was one scoop or two.

  • LOL...it's the little things, isn't it?! :o) I just took one of my old 1/4 cup measuring scoops and I place it in the gargantuan coffee tub my husband buys! However, I wonder if the original ones like the "Chock Full O' Nuts" scoops would be worth anything now as collector items?! LOL :o)

  • I've never seen a scoop inside coffee and I've been buying the stuff for about 15 years. How bizarre. I have one that came with my coffee pot. I keep it in my coffee jar and just wash it out whenever I refill the jar.

  • I don't understand why they don't keep making them for coffee when they make them for powdered infant formula.

    Ah well, one of the great mysteries of the world...lol.
