I am thinking about getting some of the little paper filters for the reusable pod to make it easier to empty and reduce sediment.
That's what I do. I read that coffee doesn't decompose in septic systems, it just builds up, so I don't rinse it down the sink.

Maybe I'm missing something. Makes no sense to me to buy an expensive coffee maker just so you can use expensive pods to make a cup of coffee. Buy a 12 cup maker and a couple pounds of Folgers. Good coffee for cheap.
I didn't buy one. It was given to me for free and I'm not using the pods.

Get a paperclip and bend out the long end. Keep it in a drawer nearby. When it starts sputtering and barely making a full cup of coffee, stick the long end of the paperclip up through the holes in the top needle and clean out all the stuck coffee grounds. Run it through a couple cycles without a K-Cup pod in it, and you'll be back in business.

Sincerely, a long-time Keurig 2.0 user

I had a real nice coffee pot for a long time, worked great. Started drinking espresso more often, and I wanted something that made nicer coffee. I also found that when making a pot of coffee, I a lot of the time would drink a cup or two and throw the rest away.
With the old lady going to Starbucks 3x a week and me drinking espresso/energy drinks, buying a Nespresso machine has been a huge money saver. Rather than making a pot of coffee, drinking a cup out of it while I’m getting ready, and grabbing an energy drink on the way to work, I just make myself a fancy coffee in my machine, and call it good. That’s $1-$2 a morning for coffee for me and the old lady opposed to $10-15. It’s damn good coffee too.

Sir, step away from the toolbox!

I agree with what you're saying but I personally can't hack those nasty floor sweepings called Folgers.
I'm not a coffee snob, don't grind my own or anything but I have to buy another brand and throw it in the Mr. Coffee machine.
