Those things are the biggest scam since bottled water.
I use a tassimo machine - works out to 49 cents/cup taxes in, using grocery store brand t-discs.

I'm sure using a standard coffee perk, filters and a big can of folgers ends up being cheaper, but it's worth it for the convenience of the thing. Throw the travel mug and t-disc in the machine, push the button, put my shoes on, grab the mug/throw out the t-disc and out the door I go. Clean the machine every few days.

I do wish someone would make a refillable t-disc for the thing. Can't be that hard to make.

That's absurd-- sanitation has been a big deal since the advent of urbanization. Look at ancient Rome for fuck's sake! Running water, sewers, indoor toilets, heated baths, etc. And they aren't alone, they're just the first example I thought of.

Rome was kind of an exception. the other 95% of the world was still living in moderate filth. Look at the middle ages.

Okay, Herodotus. Whatever you say.


there is little record of other sanitation in most of Europe until the High Middle Ages. Unsanitary conditions and overcrowding were widespread throughout Europe and Asia during the Middle Ages, resulting periodically in cataclysmic pandemics such as the Plague of Justinian (541-42) and the Black Death (1347–1351), which killed tens of millions of people and radically altered societies.[2]

They do make refillable K-Cups. They just need some kind of efficient way to clean them for the next use. coffee grounds are like regolith, they stick to everything.

:wtf:

ancient china, japan, the middle east (the goddamn birthplace of civilization), etc.

Oh really? Well, it's too bad that their settlements were all tiny little filth caked mudholes. If they had any kind of public infrastructure that could support large populations in small areas then it would mean you are wrong.

Oh, so advanced sanitation systems weren't restricted to Rome? Because I'm pretty sure I read that recently.

The refillable k-cup is shit. It makes an inconsistent cup regardless. I tried it for a month solid and said fuck it. Sold my keurig on Craigslist

I never have a problem with mine. Do you grind your own beans before filling it?
