Personally, neither can I. We don't own a single-brew coffee machine. We do have a vintage single-brew coffee cone that Himself has had since his college days...which began in summer of 1965. Still works like the first time! Who needs a pod machine?

It turns out that the inventor of the K-cup, John Sylvan, is sorry he ever invented the system due to its cost, wastefulness, and the recycling issues. Keurig says it will have the pods completely recyclable by 2020, but Dean Cycon, founder and owner of Dean's Beans, has had a completely compostable pod for a few years.

You must not be referring to Nespresso when you say the pods are paper. The Nespresso pods are aluminum and, apparently, have a few hoops for people to jump through to get them recycled.

Oh, thanks, CP. We still brew coffee the old way: grind the beans, measure the grounds and water, wait for the pot to finish brewing. We drink too much coffee to be using pods!

I can't imagine consuming over a pound of coffee per week. I'd be buzzing around 24/7.....

Well where I come from inn Sweden, if any one comes inside your door, you offer them coffee as sign of friendship and being welcomed into the house. And you either say yes or no or half cup or tea or water. Because no means I dont want your friendship and politeness and that is rude. Hence alot of coffee is needed sometimes.
