Trilo, every rare now and then an appliance really lives up to or surpasses expectations... that K-cup coffeemaker is one!
I couldn't love it more. Terrific device. It's FAST too. You can just leave it on, I checked mine with a watt meter, it costs you practically nothing since it only keeps a small quantity of water hot all the time. If you keep it near the sink and you have one of those handheld sprayers you can just fill it with that, that's what I do.
You're not locked into using the K-cup thingies, they do have screen cups that you can spoon your own coffee into. Mine even came with it.
It's great. You drop in the coffee, hit the button and coffee starts filling your cup. You don't even have to clean it much, nothing but water goes through the machine. If I were a little more flush with cash I'd send you one for Christmas.
Customer satisfaction, in my case, 110%!
Thel K-cups I just bought say "compostible" on the bags they are packed in... they are a paper filter but have a plastic ring on top, I'm not sure what's up with that, if it's some sort of biodegradable composite or they mean just the coffee grounds. I use the spoon-in-your-own-coffee thing when I can, but I throw in a K-cup when I'm late for work and gotta have it FAST.
