Coffee is a must for most Americans these days and using the coffee pods are such a waste. These reusable capsules are great for reducing waste as well as saving money. Fresh ground coffee tastes so much better than shelf pods, and is more economical. Switching to ground coffee with this reusable capsule will more than pay for its self! Just fill with the coffee of your choice, tamp down, close the lid and line up the hole in the top of the pod with the needle/pin in your machine and brew for great coffee. The capsule is very easy to clean; just empty used coffee into compost bin and rinse under your faucet.
