6 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do With Coffee — VIDEO

There is no greater driving life force in this world than coffee — and that is a fact. OK, so we're exaggerating a bit. Still, if these coffee hacks don't prove to you that there's nothing those caffeinated beans can't do, we don't know what to tell you. Spoon University has rounded up unexpected uses for coffee that verify the hypothesis that coffee is life. Whether you freeze coffee into ice cubes to keep your afternoon pick-me-up cold brew icy and strong, mix it in with hot chocolate for an instant mocha, or add it to your face to eliminate under-eye circles, coffee always has your back. While nothing beats a steaming hot cup of java in the morning, a true connoisseur shouldn't limit their coffee consumption to straight sippin' — you want these tricks on your side. Go ahead and get brewing, because you've got a lot of coffee that needs making.

Coffee is basically the glue that keeps us college kids together. Whether we’re trying to finish that paper we procrastinated on, or trying to stay awake during that 8 a.m. class, coffee is there to help.

Check out these six coffee hacks that will make you an even bigger coffee addict then you already are.

Ice Cubes

If you like your iced coffee from the fancy cafe down the street, but you’re running low in the money department, it's time to make your own cold brew.

Honestly, coffee ice cubes? I don’t understand why everyone isn’t doing this.

Cool Whip

Whip it right in with your coffee. It adds creamy sweet goodness to your coffee that milk just can’t do.

Coffee Grounds for Eye Bags

Because in college we don’t get enough sleep, and this little hack will keep you lookin’ fresh for that 8 a.m. Just spread a bit of your leftover coffee grounds under your eyes, and let it sit for about 15 minutes.
