Those things already have to be INSANELY profitable, now they just want to charge more? Now that their patent on the original k-cups has run out, lots of competitors are making compatible cups and even store brands. Now they will be even more expensive than the competition!

Just use the My-K cup device to cut the costs down. That will save you lots of cash over those pre-made k-cups.
