Ongoing coffee trials

Oh goodness. Epic fail as I tried out the Keurig make-your-own filter instead of the k-cups.  I may have the wrong grind or was doing something wrong, but there was water spewing everywhere.  A quick internet search indicates this is a common problem and that a little plastic washer can fix the problem.  There’s also another type of 1-cup filter that uses little paper filters, which looks like easier clean-up and could potentially be composted.  Might be a better option.

Ah the balance between convenience and less waste.  Until we get that figured out I think I’ll use a coffee press.
