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.
