Keurig coffee

Am I the only one who thinks these things create huge amounts of waste? I mean the box alone which contains 12-18 servings is pretty big for what it produces, never mind the individual "cups" each serving is contained in.

What happened to the environment, or is convenience king again?
That's the end of my rant.

Yeah I could never understand why they never made it more environmentally friendly. It would be easy enough for them to make the top + filter come out and then at least you could recycle the plastic cup.

Yes, convenience and profit motive. The price per pound of coffee is around $50/lb for most types.
