I like the refillable ones since they let me use freshly ground coffee instead of the stale stuff sitting in the store-bought pods. To fill them, I made a cone out of a taped up sheet of paper.

Glad it works for you! Disclaimer . . . . it was my engineer father-in-law that explained the "internal pressure" principle to me. I'm just a liberal arts guy.

I like the convenience of the Keurig, but the cost is just...well not worth it to me. I had one at my desk when I was still w*rking and it was great, but I did notice that every 4 months or so, I would have to take it apart to clean it since it would stop working.
Today, it's used once in a blue moon but generally it sits unused.

Every day, I use my 12-cup programmable Cuisinart without fail, and have been doing so for the last 7 years. When it finally gives up the ghost, I have another one in the garage that my Dad used for 5 years. Easy to use, good coffee costs less than .05 a suits me well.
