Do you love coffee? Of course you do. Do you sometimes wish you could drink coffee instead of water? Do you want to void the warranty on your hot water heater? Yes? Well, then we have the hack for you!
A Norweigan science show called Ikke gjør dette hjemme (Do Not Try This at Home) decided it would be fun to see what would happen if you turned your hot water heater into a giant coffee machine. They didn’t put much effort into the conversion, in fact, they just opened up the tank and poured copious amounts of instant coffee into the tank. But they did it, and that saves us from wondering if it’s possible. Spoiler: It is.
Stick around after the break to see the water run brown — in a good way.

Perhaps it would be simpler to just have an automatic alarm that notifies you when the actual coffee pot is ready. Not quite as convenient drinking straight from the tap… but at least your hot water heater will still have its warranty.
