Default So I was given a used coffee maker...

And it takes pods... What is a pod? I have no idea.

Where do I buy them?

No idea actually... it was just offered to me. I don't have it in my possession yet. I think it is a Senseo something or other. It supposedly makes 2 cups at a time or something like that. I'll find out more details later on this evening I hope.

Pods are more like this...


(there are also reusable ones you can buy and use your own grounds)

The other ones are considered K-Cups...

I'd toss the thing in the trash.

With pods, you don't know what the beans are, you have no idea when they were roasted and you haven't a clue as to how long the pods have been sitting in a warehouse or in the store.

My point is, fresh whole bean coffee is the best, not some preground stuff that have several months of age.

A make your own pod will solve the freshness problem.

I thought this was interesting and creative:
Make your own

Or you can buy a gadget to make it for you.

It all seems like kind of a hassle. Maybe this is why it was gifted to you.

I can brew 2 cups in my regular coffee maker no problem and I don't have to make a diaper first.

My wife loves her Keurig. It's great if you only drink 1-2 cups a day, but k-cups can get expensive if you drink a lot of coffee. They make a reusable k-cup that works pretty good if you want to brew your own.
