I received a Keurig coffe maker as a gift a few years ago. It's not so bad as far as voluminous kitchen appliances encouraging the pathological drive to 100% convenience goes. But I always felt a little bit like a wasteful selfish dumbass after the caffeine wore off and I had a bucket full of little plastic buckets.
So I got a re-usable "everkup" (yes, Keurig, you can have that trademark) to which I simply add the better tasting freshly ground beans and then push a button to very quickly get a very nice cup of java, thank you very much.
Sure, I need to dump the little tiny pile of spent grounds into the compost, but it quickly became part of the ritual. So now my total desire-to-satisfaction time is 100 seconds instead of 91, which is +10% more so, hey, it kind of works out.
