I don't really get the K cup thing. I think it is taking something
that is basically dirt cheap, regular drip coffee and making it more
expensive for no particular reason. I do drink more coffee than most K
cup users tho. We have a "one cup" feature on our coffee maker but I
have only used it a few times. This is not a K cup, it is a smaller
filter and a single dose of coffee. You can either use a "pod" a
coffee bag like the Maxwell house thing or a teaspoon of coffee in the
reusable filter basket.
We make a 12 cup pot first thing in the morning, my wife has a mug or
two and I work on the rest all day

Wife does not drink coffee, so just me. Make a 10 cup in a thermal
carafe. So next day, just nuke the coffee.

Wife worked on me for months until I agreed to get her a Keurig coffee maker. I was perfectly happy with the old Hamilton Beech model we had.
She buys and tries all the different types available in pods while I throw two little scoops of Folgers into the reuseable pod each morning. On Sunday I usually reward myself with a Donut House or MacDonald's pod.

The only way I can drink day old nuked coffee is with a shot of
Baileys in it ;-)

I usually buy Don Carlos from Costco/Sams. It is a pretty good coffee
at a reasonable price. I am still trying to decide if I need my own
grinder. I grind it at the store now and I do think it is better
freshly ground,

The thermal carafe is the secret. Not overlooked or burnt. But working
nights for years and drinking machine coffee may be part of it. Funny as
I had free coffee grounds available for years, but rarely made coffee at
home. Had the computer in a major coffee roasting plant. We could have a
smashed cans. Was cheaper to give it to the workers than open it and pour
it back in to system.

I don't think K cups are designed for people like you. They are for
people like myself who used to want an occasional cup of coffee during
the day but most of the time don't drink much coffee. I have one cup
in the morning with Mrs.E. while she tells me how great Trump is. :-)

When we bought the K-cups for it we didn't buy the Keurig brand or Green
Mountain. Dunkin' Donuts sells their coffee in K-cups and that's what
we'd get.
