Fresh ground coffee mug pocket

Grind beans and don't pour water on them.

Fresh ground coffee is among the most wonderful scents that I've found on this planet. However, once you pour hot water over it, the ground coffee loses most of this scent.

I propose a coffee cup with a little pocket built on one side of the rim. Fresh ground coffee is placed in this pocket, and held in place with a perforated plastic lid. This pocket is then close to the drinker's nose while the coffee is being sipped.

       [FJ], my psychiatrist says to stay away from people like you...

       Yeah, but does that wonderful aroma really work with the actual beverage? I wonder if the ground bean aroma might clash with the brewed bean aroma in the mug. Somebody ought to try this.

       [OC] My office recently installed a coffee machine that grinds and brews fresh coffee for each cup. The smell is amazing, and I've drank coffee near it. The two scents go together wonderfully.   

       [UB] I thought we've seen you here at all times lately.

       People addicted to those desserts masquerading as coffee could mix some chocolate in the pocket as well, instead of drinking it constantly and wondering why they are gaining weight when they barely ‘eat’.

       I agree, [WG]. I also consumed a cup next to the coffee grinder at the local shop yesterday. I was a bit overwhelmed by the combination. Almost too much of a good thing, but I couldn't give it up and walk away.
