Thanks Alix, you answered two thoughts (questions) with one post.
I noticed that little adapter thingy when I cruised Kienna's actual website. I hadn't seen the adapter mentioned on Tweed's site. It looks different than the one I have for brewing bulk coffee, so surmised that one would not work as well.
Maybe if I call and throw together a sampler package they will throw it in.

Sometimes they have coupon specials, but the one that added the adapter was on last month. You just missed it. Its only $7 I think.

Alix, what kind of brewer do you use these pods with? We have a senseo at work, the pods that it uses look quite the same. We find it increasingly difficult to find pods for the Senseo in the grocery stores, maybe these will work.

I have a Keurig. I don't know if they would work, but I suspect they would. You can buy a 10 sized sampler and give it a try. Not too expensive that way. I just realized that Bed, Bath and Beyond carried these too.

I've noticed a wide variance in K-Cup prices. BB&B had them today for $1 each in a 12 pack. Our supermarket had them for $6 for a 12 pack. Costco has them for about $0.38 each in a 50 pack.

SO likes the Nantucket Blend and I really like the Tully's French Roast. I also tried a cup of Dunkin Donuts dark roast using the My K-Cup thingy.

Sadly, SO is dangerous with new gadgets. She gets up earlier than I in the morning. So the night before, I filled the My K-Cup with her decaf. I explained that when she came to the kitchen, the coffee maker would be on and the water would be hot and all she had to do was press the BREW button.

When I came down later, she was all upset, had reprogrammed the clock on the Keurig and changed the cup size. She actually got a cup of coffee out of it.

This last night I explained it all again, stressing that all she had to do was press the BREW button. When she got up, she decided she wanted a Nantucket Blend so she took out the My K-cup and put in the NB cup, not realizing she had to put in the K cup holder. She got a cup of hot water. Then she figured that part out and got a cup of coffee. In the process, she had scrambled the clock and reset it for PM instead of AM.

I don't know if the coffee maker or I will be the first to break down.

So, one step at a time.

Fred, I see you bought a commercial model (#145). Are you happy with that/are there any issues? Do you know if there are still issues with the Platinum series?

We use mugs that hold about 10 ounces of coffee (before cream). Do we need different K-Cups pr do we do 2 K-Cups to fill a mug?
If you only want one cup at a time with an optional refill a small cafetiere is your best bet. Ground coffee in the glass container - boil kettle - pour water just off the boil onto the grounds - allow to brew for a few minutes (depends on your personal taste) - stir - pres down plunger - pour into cup - drink. Seemples as the meerkats say.

I am not laughing...

Shrek has fits when he notices I have put a mug on that we haven't tested for size...really goes nuts when he notices I've hit the 12 ounce at the same time...
