Flying K-Cups of Death!

Do you drink coffee? It’s my favorite “legally addictive stimulant,” to borrow from Nora Ephron, so I’m trying to wean myself away from pricier coffee habits, like Starbucks and single-use pods. I saw this Atlantic article lamenting the rise of K-Cups and their lack of recyclability (recyclable-ness? I cannot spell this to save my life) today. Little plastic pods are running amok in our landfills, America! They could wrap around the planet more than ten times.

Luckily, there’s an easy solution for this problem: use bagged coffee and a reusable pod. That’s what I use with my Keurig and there are many models available. It’s dishwasher-safe and actually cheaper than single-use pods. I’m still looking for a reusable pod and comparable espresso for my infrequently-used Nespresso machine. Suggestions? I’ll be researching this question.

Update: Found!
