My pushers at Get Naked Espresso use a Slayer. In the right hands it makes amazingly good coffee. A thing of beauty.

Fortunately I am not a big coffee drinker and not drinking it does not affect my mood.  I am a ritualistic coffee drinker, I like the act of drinking that one cup of coffee in the morning.  I will probably treat it like beer and only have 1 or 2 cups on weekends.  Everything in moderation!  I swear I will be so pissed if I die of a heart attack or something, I can't possibly live any cleaner, exercise, eat any more healthy or get any more sleep than I do now.{#Eek}

In that situation I just chew on some grounds.
Why dilute it?

my interior designer likes the idea of a nice convenient hip looking rig, i like a good cup of coffee, the negotiation for countertop space continues

i'm constantly scanning for a hack that will make it better

there may be a nespresso or something similar in my future

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

I finally fired up the roaster again. Don't forget about getting green beans at Sweet Marias. 
Home roasting is super simple and gives you some great beans. Much cheaper for the beans than the pre-roasted ones at other places, too.

Bustelo and others simply create more garbage by appealing to the "want it now and make it easy" gene.  For two minutes more/day you can grind this extraordinary Peaberry French Roast from Kona and have the most exquisite espresso you likely have ever tasted.  So it's $50/lb...small price to pay.  Fresh ground is the only way to have a real cup of joe, imo.  It really is wonderful coffee.
