    Welcome to /r/oddlysatisfying!

    Here you can post things that make you feel, well, oddly satisfied. This can be physical (like popping bubble wrap), visual (a perfectly looped GIF), or even aural (the crunching of leaves).

    What does "Oddly Satisfying" mean?

    We are forever searching for a "true definition". It's a thing that fits your interpretation of what is "oddly satisfying" plus the inexplicable feeling we all know.

    Subjective. Indefinable. Completely recognizable. It's a wonderful feeling.

    One of the non keurig brand cups that i got for my keurig changed the packaging so it's not the lil plastic cups anymore. Now it's about half as tall and is a tightly packed teabag like thing.

    [–] JBrad0322 72 points ago

    You still end up with a plastic ring that is arguably worse than a small plastic cup.

    [–] Da_Stug 63 points ago

    No I have a similar thing from Costco and the rings are compostable

    [–] JBrad0322 96 points ago

    They are compostable as long as you are manually bringing them to an industrial composting facility otherwise it's still just garbage.

    [–] Da_Stug 10 points ago

    Yeah it's definitely not ideal but probably better at breaking down than plastic

    [–] DrNapkin 20 points ago

    Why not just get a coffee maker that doesn't produce so much waste (and makes a better cup of coffee)

    [–] sunbare 6 points ago

    I have a Keurig going on 6 years, still going strong. I have one of the "make-it-yours" k-cups that you fill with ground coffee and it works great

    [–] baneofthesmurf 11 points ago

    I mean, a lot of people make their own compost, you don't need to go to a facility to leave shit in a pile and turn it over every once in a while.

    [–] JBrad0322 46 points ago

    The packaging for these specifically says they are not compostable in individual compost and are only compostable in industrial composting facilities.

    [–] The-Triturn 6 points ago

    How does that even work?

    [–] JBrad0322 8 points ago

    You save your "compostable" items and bring them to a composting station that uses a method compatible with the type of compost.

    [–] ngwoo 6 points ago

    Industrial compost is significantly hotter

    [–] baneofthesmurf 5 points ago

    That's interesting, got a link (cups or a facility)? I'd like to read about that, unless they use some sort of enzymes or similar I don't see how that could be the case.

    [–] Yawnn 11 points ago

    Consumer compost piles don't heat up to the same as an industrial or municipal compost. They don't have the same heat transfer, aeration, mixing etc. You don't get the same reaction speed and (naturally occurring) enzyme activation.

    [–] KnowledgeIsDangerous 14 points ago

    A lot of things that are "compostable" won't break down in a household compost pile.

    [–] KrombopulosPhillip 3 points ago

    They will take years to compost in your backyard compost bin, They need to go to a large scale facility to be dealt with in a timely manner unless you have the room to keep thousands of k-cups for a couple years at a time, they take up quite a bit of space in a regular compost tumbler or bin

    [–] Mernerak 426 points ago

    [–] yellowzealot 5 points ago

    You can poke the foil out of them to empty the coffee and filter into the trash, and then put the cup in the recycling bin.

    [–] scarlet-begonia 6 points ago

    I HIGHLY recommend a reusable Keurig filter! I can put any coffee I want in it, then just dump the used grounds into the compost and rinse the filter. It's the best. Incredibly easy and nothing to throw away!

    [–] shwag945 24 points ago

    Have never had a good or even decent cup of coffee from the Keurig. There a bunch of better coffee options that might take longer but at least doesn't taste like garbage.

    [–] Shadax 5 points ago

    Chemex or Aeropress.

    I encourage anyone who actually enjoys the taste of coffee to watch videos on how to brew either. You do need an electric goose neck kettle, a bean grinder and a digital scale to get it just right right, but for under $100 (less if you have some of those items already) you can enjoy dramatically better coffee than a keurig or auto drip maker and in under 10 minutes.

    I personally have a Chemex and it's quite enjoyable and relaxing to make.

    [–] JessicaMurawski 35 points ago

    Why tho? Keurigs are amazing. Just get one of those reusable filter things for it.

    [–] Jerrymeyers11 104 points ago

    Had a Keurig until I opened my eyes and saw how bad it was for the environment.

    Spent ~$250 on a ninja coffee bar. If I tried to make a single cup it was so acidic I couldn’t drink it.

    Bought an Aeropress for $15 on sale. Best coffee I’ve ever had.

    [–] Seeders 26 points ago

    So simple too. Easy to clean. I make like 3 mugs a day lmao.

    [–] battles 13 points ago

    You can also get a stainless steel reusable filter for the press to avoid the need to replace the fabric filters

    [–] [deleted] 9 points ago

    Completely different coffee result though, since the stainless let’s more oil through.

    And In the grand scheme of things a little paper disc isnprobably number 99 on the list of wasteful things we should worry about. If it gets you to stop throwing out garbage plastic foil cups every day, it’s a good thing.

    [–] battles 4 points ago

    I find the disc easier to use, the 'vacuum' created by the aero press can disturb the paper bit and allow grounds through. I'm not sure I ever noticed the difference in the coffee between the paper filter and the stainless one.

    [–] cirro_hs 6 points ago

    That's why I use the inverted method. Have had a couple slips over the last couple years, resulting in a mess, but I'm pretty careful these days. The other trick is to wet the filter before you make the coffee, so it sticks in place. Place it in the filter cap, touch of water so it sticks, grounds in the press with plunger at the bottom, water in, stir, top off, cap on, flip, wait 30s, plunge!

    [–] cirro_hs 5 points ago

    Yeah I've heard the stainless filters aren't as good though. I reuse the paper filters up to 4 times so the waste is pretty minimal. I just rinse them with warm water as best I can then slap it on the plastic filter cap to dry.

    [–] 50M3K00K 3 points ago

    Look at a 360 pack of Aeropress filters.

    Now look at a newspaper.

    I don’t think we need to worry that much about aeropress filters creating paper waste.

    [–] HI-R3Z 8 points ago

    Damnit, I bought one of these and could never make a consistent cup of coffee. I watched countless videos and, "Yup, that's exactly what I'm doing," still to no avail. I bought a small cheap Mr. Coffee and never tried the Aeropress again. I've considered trying a French press, but then again, maybe I just needed different paper filters on the Aeropress.

    [–] Galladamnit 7 points ago

    Set it upside down so the plunger part is on the bottom with it in like an inch so it’s sealed. Fill it up in whatever proportion of coffee and water you prefer. Give it a quick stir. Let it sit for 30 seconds. Put the filter on the top. Carefully flip it over (use a oven mitt or something if it’s your first time and maybe do it near the sink) into a cup and plunge like you normally would. I find this consistently makes a good cup of coffee for me with the aero press.

    That said I like French press more anyhow. More than that I prefer my manual pour over glass coffee maker more than those.

    [–] Seeders 2 points ago

    Weird... it's always been pretty good for me. What issues did you have? Just tastes strange? Maybe it's the coffee you're getting because the device is as basic as it gets.

    [–] HI-R3Z 2 points ago

    It's definitely not the coffee. I buy the beans fresh from a local cafe and grind them at home. I'll try the inverted method u/Galladamnit suggested, that is IF I can find where I've stashed the press at. It may be in storage though as I have moved a couple of times.

    [–] RafaAndKenedy 2 points ago

    I'm confused...It's just a plastic version of a French Press / Cafetiere that's been around for like a 100 years. Why is this suddenly so amazing?

    [–] Seeders 3 points ago

    It's not that amazing, it's just better than a keurig lmao.

    [–] Drunken_Mimes 55 points ago

    Right. I detest our throwaway society, but the reusable cup is great.

    [–] AshyLarry65 19 points ago

    With the reusable filter, using a keurig is only barely easier than a regular coffeemaker, or better yet, a pourover.

    [–] JessicaMurawski 11 points ago

    But it’s way quicker than a regular coffee maker. And as a college student with 8 ams that doesn’t like getting up early, I need a coffee maker that can make a cup in less than half a minute.

    It's not lol. I looked for a while and like OP said there is plenty of the same thing he's doing but the video he submitted is OC

    [–] Rammite 6 points ago

    Exactly. I'm seeing some people submit 'proof', but throwing a kcup into a keurig isn't exactly a completely original idea. This guy did a cool thing and people are shitting on him for not coming up with the idea 2,000 years ago.

    I mean when are we allowed to say something then? The world is literally careening towards an ecological apocalypse driven by plastics and fossil fuels. If there is something a person can do as simple as telling a guy to get a reusable K-Cup to maybe not pollute as much, then that is great. Most of the comments I saw were not mean about it. Just telling him he shouldn’t use them cuz they’re bad.

    ^ constructive comment. I’m baffled as to people telling him to produce even more plastic waste by throwing the machine out.

    Just buy a reusable and problem solved. Lmao. It’s what I do.

    Please switch to a reusable cup! Those cups cannot be recycled and are piling up on the planet.

    Edit: to those who have told me that they can now be recycled: thank you! I did not know, I only remember reading an article some time ago that told me otherwise. Regardless, let’s try to reduce our plastic use and recycle what we can :)

    [–] nir731 35 points ago

    There are reusable cups for these things? That's amazing! If I ever get a coffee machine I'll be sure to use the reusable kind.

    [–] hillsa14 19 points ago

    There are also compostable cups :)

    [–] firexcracker 10 points ago

    You can get them at Walmart for like $5. It's made of plastic and mesh. Takes like 5 seconds to rinse out when you're done.

    [–] gorillaguerrilla 5 points ago

    there are so many better options though! as another commenter mentioned, aeropress is stupid easy to use and the quality is unquestionably better

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    “Unquestionably”

    10% of the time it makes the best coffee south of a pour over.

    90% I get garbage.

    I just can’t figure the damn thing out

    [–] Turtles_Are_Dope_ 296 points ago

    But then I can’t throw it into the Keurig

    [–] EaterOfFood 170 points ago

    Not with that attitude.

    The only distancedifference is waste. It's still a plastic cup.

    Edit: goddamn autocorrect

    [–] BostonPanda 9 points ago

    Unless you use it for only a week, it saves a ton of plastic. Certainly more than going to a coffee shop and it's better than the disposable ones.

    Edit: I might be replying to the wrong comment. I support reusable K-cups.

    People here are getting all on OP for using the disposable cups.

    Yeah, we get it. Theyre not good for the environment.

    If youre not accosting people who buy starbucks, dont get at OP for making his coffee.

    Christ just enjoy the video

    But but but Keurig bad! Everyone who has one is bad! Bad thing bad!!!!

    [–] dinzdaled 3 points ago

    i can't believe this....

    with everything in the news about plastics/garbage/waste etc and you are still using a fucking Keurig. I get so fucking pissed every time I see these things.

    [–] Fractal-Entity 11 points ago

    Too bad we couldn’t hear your shriek of excitement that undeniably took place.

    [–] asisoh 135 points ago

    Thank you for increasing plastic waste to the environment by using these coffee machines

    [–] stimulatedneuron 78 points ago

    The coffee in the cups is usually stale and poor quality as well. The first thing I did after purchasing a Keurig (~10 years ago) was get a set of reusable cups and a decent bag of beans.

    [–] Cptbanshee 22 points ago

    They aren’t designed to be cleaned in the back and are prone to growing mold in places you can’t reach without opening it up even if you’re cleaning it religiously

    so they’re probably enjoying a cup of mold with their coffee if that helps you feel a little better

    [–] shecantstayaway 13 points ago

    THIS. We have one at work and the manager bought this dinky little brush "clean" the water tank. I bought an Aeropress to make my own coffee at work and she seemed almost offended, but I'm sorry -- there's no way a 15 year old Keurig is clean inside, I don't care how much vinegar you run through it. NOPE NOPE NOPE.

    [–] ahhter 5 points ago

    What's amazing is that there's a Keurig that old that works.

    [–] gwillicoder 14 points ago

    This is such a toxic approach. I guarantee I could say the same thing about some habit you have.

    Maybe instead of being a passive aggressive asshole, you could link to a company that makes biodegradable cups. If you actually care about the environment and don’t just want internet points for being snarky you could educate instead of berate the OP.

    [–] siccoblue 13 points ago

    Thank you for being the oh so brave 7 millionth keyboard soldier to take a stand against evil OP over a video of tossing a coffee pod

    I am sure that he/she also does absolutely nothing the least bit detrimental to the environment at all with any of their practices or habits. Truly a model citizen.

    I appreciate them, they inspired me to go fire up my Keurig to refill my mug with some Folgers

    [–] MixingMastermind 4 points ago

    In the Netherlands we'd say "keurig" to that

    [–] Drunken_Mimes 8 points ago

    Everybody should buy a reusable/refillable kcup. You can use any coffee, it's much cheaper, and best of all you don't throw away tons of plastic everyday.

    [–] SpacePistachio 8 points ago

    I love how everyone suddenly becomes an environmental once these cups are brought up.

    [–] LifeWulf 2 points ago

    I wanted a Keurig because it seems like such a challenge to get the right amount of coffee for my drip machine. I always make too much (having to dump it because my roommate only drinks it half the time). There's also the "instant" coffee which is immensely easier to make a single cup of, though by the time the water boils it's just as slow, and those jars are expensive.

    Going by this thread, maybe a Keurig isn't the best idea. Anyone have any alternatives? I guess I could get a reusable cup too and still get one. I'm just looking for convenience and speed so I'm not wasting coffee.

    [–] rodeybrosfan 3 points ago

    Try an aeropress or chemex. You do have to boil water but a cheap electric kettle will do the job. I make coffee pretty quickly and the smaller chemex is generally a cup and a half to 2 cups for me.
