Repurposed Dosing Bottles (Bonus: Free Coffee)

So there's this craze for cold brew coffee going around and my local grocery store (publix) started selling a brand that used these contraptions as a container.

The idea is to dose a shot and mix with water for a smooth cup of coffee.

They look JUST like my 500ml dosing bottles! They're only missing the ml graduations on the dosing section. That was easily fixed with the help of a dropper and a sharpie and one is now in use as my doser for iron (propel) because I simply can't be bothered to mess with a dropper every morning.

So maybe free coffee in the topic was a clickbait . Would it have been more effective if I said Free Dosing Bottle with coffee? As for the coffee review? Maybe off topic, but there's 3 flavors. The pictured toasted almond one, hazelnut, and plain. I haven't tried plain yet. Toasted almond was pretty satisfactory, but stay away from hazelnut.

Good find! Years ago I haunted various stores looking for stuff for sale in those bottles, and only found toxic stuff that made the bottles a poor choice for aquarium dosing. If I had found this I would now be a fan of flavored coffee!
