I bought these refillable K-cups for my Keurig for the obvious reason of economics. Being that I am somewhat of a coffee snob and love a good cup of coffee this not only sounded economical to me, it also allows me to use my own coffee grinds of the coffees that I love. I took my time in reading descriptions and reviews of other similar refillable K-cups and chose these MetaCups. Not only were the reviews and ratings the highest, they also have a lifetime guarantee. The company, MetaShop has contacted me via email with tips on the best setting to grind my beans, brewing and answering some of my questions to them as to the best way to empty the used grinds. A finer rather than coarser grind is recommended. Adjusting the gasket on the machine ensures a better cup of coffee. A couple of sharp taps on the counter top before opening the MetaCup to empty used grounds works like a charm. In the ad, it is referenced that free coffee samples are enclosed in the order and I took issue with MetaShop because samples are not enclosed, rather there is a card with a link to access to claim your "free samples", you just pay the shipping and handling. Now my decision to make my purchase was not at all based on the "free samples" of coffee, but I did have a problem with the wording in the ad stating samples would come with my MetaCups. MetaShop promptly responded saying they do not enclose samples that could possibly have been stored in a warehouse getting stale. Good point! I like that. Still, the wording of the ad does not reflect that . After some further email contact, MetaShop informed me they are indeed working on re-wording the ad to better inform the consumer on how to claim their free coffee samples! How great is that? Great company in my opinion. One other possible issue I addressed with MetaShop about the MetaCups is where the lid attaches to the pod. I predict that plastic "hinge" will not last a lifetime and am assured if it indeed does ever separate from the pod, MetaShop will happily make a replacement because of the lifetime guarantee. I love these pods, I love this company and the contact that I have had with them. Most of all, I am loving my coffee!
