Just to offer a different voice here.
I have used Kureg (however you spell it) and though it is far from the pointy end of coffee, it is an acceptable brew, it isn't spit it out in the sink bad. When we see our son in the navy, we stay at the base hotel, they have those brewers in each room. I used to take all my own equipment but anymore, I just use their brewer. It is OK, just not great. I would not buy one for my home but as it is there already, I just go ahead and use it.

YMMV!

Anything I post is personal opinion and is only worth as much as anyone else's personal opinion. YMMV!

Feed the newbs, starve the trolls and above all enjoy what you drink!

^true, but I also don't want to run out and buy some k-cups just for this weekend.  

I think I'm going to pre-grind and use a valve storage bag. I'll probably also look into a getting a smaller hand grinder down the road.
