I have a love/hate relationship with my morning cup of coffee. I have kicked the habit, or at least taken a break from the habit, for years at a time, but I always seem to return to my beloved cup of joe.
Time to find a new coffee making system.
Needless to say I would not purchase a K Cup system. I won't bother going into the reasons; they do not need to be spoken, and EcoYogini has already done a great job.

Enter the good old fashioned French press, or Bodum. The hot water does not touch any plastic parts, and there is no filter (even though I have a reusable filter). The only waste, the coffee grounds, are put either into the compost or directly into the garden.
For me, a coffee snob, the best part is that I can leave the coffee steeping for as long as I want and make a killer strong cup.
Sure there are downsides, like having to reheat my second cup if I wait too long, and having to replace it when I knock it off the counter, but overall I think this is the way to go for a zero waste, and zero guilt, cup of coffee.

morning, as I was rushing to work, of course.
Next problem, finding a fully plastic free electric kettle.
