    it’s pretty great, although I have to be more intentional now about supporting smaller local roasters, too.

    not even trying to be a ~snob~ or anything. flavored coffee grounds just sound disgusting.

    I'd personally rather get a flavored coffee with Torani syrup than flavored grounds. But I resort to them at home in the Keurig when lazy. Cinnabon, pumpkin spice, blueberry, and vanilla caramel usually.

    We bought some k-cups from them, and they knowingly had an issue degassing that batch, so it would spurt hot water out and got a ton of coffee grounds in the cup. Ended up pouring it into a reusable k cup we use for regular grounds and it tasted fine, but nothing amazing

    I bought some Torani cinnamon that I use sparingly with non-flavored coffee. Tried some vanilla and caramel ones but didn’t really like them.

  10. This was the only place I could find that it would be appreciated but we have a Keurig at the office and we fill it with a Brita. Sounds nice, except the brita was growing mold at the bottom and the keurig reservoir had a ton of carbon gathered at the bottom and had NO FILTER! So I have spent the last couple days cleaning, descaling, and replacing filters. I feel like a super hero and this really shouldn't be the case. I have set some reminders for myself to replace and descale regularly. Now to figure out this other machine we have the looks high tech and something I can try my new Stage Right Coffee Co. (Mark Hoppus' bass tech's new side-hustle) coffee with! It's a Breville thing. I assume it's an espresso machine? Excited to figure it out!

    Wait, are Keurigs supposed to have filters at the bottom of the tank? Mine doesn't heh. I just descale with white vinegar every few months, disassemble the components the k cup sits in, and then take a tooth brush to those and the nail
     
  13. i believe there may be some models that don't need it so you can always check your model but yeah, this one IS supposed to have a filter.
