My brewing apparati include my Turkish coffee pot, my old moka-style =
pot, my Black and Decker auto drip with a Swiss Gold filter basket, a =
couple of French presses, and my DeLonghi pump espresso machine. 
In addition, last year, for my birthday, my cousin gave me something I =
never expected and never would have purchased on my own. It's a Keurig =
K-cup single-cup machine. It's designed to be used with those little =
cups of pre-ground, pre-measured coffees that cost a whole lot more than =
a cup of home-roasted, but a whole lot less than a Starbucks grande =
Americano! In general, the machine makes a surprisingly decent cup of =
coffee and you get a large selection of specialty coffees and commercial =
roasters to choose from. Nonetheless, it ain't homebrew, right?
Well, the way I've been using it up to now is to grind my commercially =
roasted beans and use the accessory that allows you to make up your very =
own "K-cup" insert. Now I'm doing the same with homeroast. The machine =
uses a pump to push the heated water through the K-cup, and if you use a =
moderately fine grind and a bit of tamping, you can draw a rich, =
full-bodied cup of your own home-roast. So far, I'm a happy camper!

Dan,
I envy you.  We have a Kurig here at work and I was at first excited about the k-cup attachment and was going to buy one until I read that the attachments will only fit the home machines and not the special office or "industrial" machines.
So I'm stuck drinking Green Mountain for the time being.

That's a shame. I certainly wouldn't suggest someone run out and buy one of 
these machines (I think the cheapest Keurihg for home use is about $100), 
but if somebody has one, this is a nice adaptation that makes a very decent 
cup.
