Nothing Funny about it - I agree wholeheartedly.
I made it through the first 35 years of my life without drinking coffee. I figured if I was going to jump in, it would be for an appreciation of quality, not a dose of medical-grade caffeine from the corner drive-through.
A good cup of Joe is an experience that deserves some time and attention. It's not a difficult skill and doesn't require high-end equipment, just good beans and a grinder. You can get a great cup unfiltered to retain all of its qualities from either a french press ($20 or less) or a simple, but quality espresso maker ($150 or less).
These pod makers are ridiculous and now you see the inkjet marketing model in action.
