Let me start by saying that I am most definitely not a fan.
K-cup or pod coffee is the ultimate in paying an exorbitant price for convenience, to say nothing of how much they add to our plastic waste problem.
The whole trend started with the arrival of the Keurig coffee machines. These machines quickly became very trendy, despite their size and their price tag.
Even though they cost a lot and take up a rather large amount of counter space, they are ubiquitous in office kitchens and lounges around the country. And in home kitchens now, as well. They are one of the latest must-have household gadgets.
You could say that they are to coffee what Burger King burgers were to grilled ground beef – fast and convenient. And they have about the same negative effects on your budget health as those burgers do on your physical well-being.
