Tried some Sumatran coffee at the fresh market, it was not as good as I was hoping.  Oh well back to the cheap stuff!{#Mrgreen}

there may be a nespresso or something similar in my future

We have a nespresso that we use mostly on the boat.  They are good for a quick shot, but exceedingly expensive for what they are.  A second one did find it's way to the land home when Mrs. Islander spotted a cheap one on warehousedeals.  I do like them for a quick shot when I've got a crazy early flight to the east coast and have to leave the house at 4:00 AM.

Yes. Color me skeptical about this particular idea.

We use a Keurig but only with reusable filter pods in which we scoop awesome coffee from the PNW and Cuba and stuff.

Okay, I went to read the $100 level award. 

Then I went back and read through and got to this:

A Word About #7 Plastic or "Yes, it is recyclable."

There is a distinct defeatist attitude among those who discuss the recyclability of K-Cups® and their components. It’s time to break out of that self-destructive mindset and realize that #7 plastic (aka unlabelled "mystery" plastic) is accepted in many areas, it is being accepted in more and more areas, and there is a very simple option open to those who live in a geography where it is not. Change the geography of your plastic.

So he wants you to mail non-recyclable plastic to another region to make it recyclable?  I'm not sure that's going to save the planet.

 
although i'm serious about recycling, i posted this mainly for the entertainment value

i'd never endorse mailing garbage but i would and have taken recyclable material by a drop off in my travels

as he says if you're implementing the reusable kcup baskets you're not part of the problem

other the rare snap purchase i'm a reusable basket guy

i put this in the same category as bottled water

i buy it for hurricane supplies but i have a decent water filter for everyday use

Added yet another sacrifice to my growing list, coffee.   Worried about the link between caffeine and hypertension. Anyone know any of the latest scoop on this?
