Love K-Cup Coffee? Guess You Hate The Planet Too
I don't understand why anyone would pay over $30/pound for the privilege of brewing one cup at a time.  Brew a whole pot, throw the rest in the sink and both your bank account and the environment are still better off.
The single serve coffee pods popular with office kitchens and harried home coffee makers pack a convenient punch of caffeine in each of their foil-topped cups, and they've become a big hit since they hit the market a few years ago. Popularized by the Keurig brand, the cups have dramatically increased in popularity, more than tripling sales since 2011. But with all that convenience comes the dark side of disposal, with gargantuan amounts of pod trash generated annually.
