Keurig Comparisons

Coffee Bean Direct -- from which I occasionally order coffee for my tasting events -- includes this K-Cup infographic in its pitch for a reusable filter for Keurig machines. This graphic provides details that I did not include in my earlier screed on the topic, entitled Will Convenience Kill Coffee? I especially appreciate the research on waste streams.
I agree that reusable filters remove some of the disadvantages of K-Cups, for the reasons described above. I do not see any remaining advantages of a Keurig, though, and wonder why people are willing to work so hard to salvage this concept. Several other methods are less expensive and more effective while requiring about the same amount of effort. A small French press can make single cups that actually taste good!

  1. good point. I am guilty of the K-cup scene at the office but fortunately, not at home.


Thanks for your comment and your interest in my blog. I will approve your comment as soon as possible. I had to activate comment moderation because of commercial spam; I welcome debate of any ideas I present, but this will not be a platform for dubious commercial messages.
