    It was your delivery to my simple question that was distasteful. I got the machine as a present and wanted to know if there was a pure product to put in it. Rather than share your insight and information with me, I had to deduce that it wasn't a good piece of equipment through your condescending comment.

    They have refillable filters for the keurig. I've seen them at Target/Walmart for about $15. You put your favorite coffee in them, put them in the machine, run it as normal, clean it and reuse. Then you can use any coffee you like. It takes a few seconds longer than just popping in a premade package thingie I suppose but shouldn't slow you down much and will allow you to choose any coffee you like

    On Amazon - less than $10 http://www.amazon.com/Keurig-K-Cup-R...eurig+my+k+cup

    You're welcome. I've never used one (or a keurig at all) but people seem to like them. Good luck!

    My husband uses the reusable filter and buys fresh roasted(in front of him) beans at a shop that sells mostly Keurig inserts. They sell raw 100% Kona beans that you can have roasted however you like for $38 pound. I bought him that and he's almost out of the last pound he bought(Ethiopian) so I am excited to hear if the Kona lives up to its reputation!!

    For a decent cup, don't get the Keurig brand refillable filter cup, get a Solofill brand one instead - under $20 at Bed Bath & Beyond. It makes a far better cup than any of the single use pods or the Keurig filter cup, even if you're not using the highest quality coffee.

    I like grinding my own beans, even if I just want one cup. It's cheaper and I love the smell of fresh ground coffee beans. Bulletproof Executive has Keurig cups now. They are expensive though.

    I've always been curious as to the "quality" of brewing from those Keurigs. We have one at work but I'm not a fan of drip coffee; but I'd probably go the refillable cup route and use my own beans if I did.

    I stick with my not-so-convenient method of stovetop espresso prepped the night before.

    What are you talking about? You're complaining that it uses a tiny plastic cup? So are people who use coffee filters evil, too?

    Amazon.com: Keurig My K-Cup Replacement Coffee Filter Set fits B30 B40 B50 B60 B70 series: Kitchen & Dining

    Spend $5 on a reusable K-cup, fill it with your own grinds and move on. Look at that, you don't even need a coffee filter, and you can use any coffee on the face of the Earth.

    If you want a premade K-cup, Black Tiger by Coffee People and Italian Roast by Tully's are both excellent.

    The Black Tiger and Italian Roasts K-cups I've mentioned in my opinion are vastly superior than the coffee you get from a Dunkin' Donuts or a Wawa. They are really fantastic.
