Coffee makes it easier to deal with things in the morning. It also provides a big kick when you start feeling down mid-day. Caffeine provides additional fuel for the day ahead to make one alert and power through the day's tasks.

However, it can be a pain if one needs to grind some beans and prepare coffee in the traditional way. Thank heavens for coffee pods! These lifesavers make it easier for anyone to enjoy a cup of java without exerting too much effort.
