When I realized how this machine worked I immediately felt like it was way to wasteful. I mean, you are using all of this plastic up in a minute or so and then just tossing it right after. I couldn't in good conscience own one.
However, this morning I was poking around on the coffee blogs and came across a neat little video and I wanted to share it with you guys.
This technique not only eliminates most of the negative environmental impacts of using these machines, but I bet it saves you a lot of money as well. Also you can use any coffee you want and don't have to buy coffee just from companies that make the capsules... that means you could use Moka Joe Coffee.
