    Pods

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Anyone see the news on the ABC about used pods. Apparently the used capsules are causing a landfill problem. The little buggers take over 150 years to breakdown. They say we Aussies buy $215M of pods a year, that's a lot of pods

    Old news discussed many a time here...

    Sadly, most of the pod users haven't given a moment's consideration to the implications of their coffee choices.

    Proud to say that I have never used nor sold one...We're a pod free zone.

    I don't want to be a defender of pods, I think they're terrible, but you have to note that he runs a rival company, so of course he's going to go out and say things like that, just be aware of the bias in the article when reading.
