Yes you can use Pods in your Keurig Machine - I have been using pods for a year now, they are cheaper and there is a better variety of flavored coffees. You do need to purchase a Perfect Pod Holster for $15 here on Amazon, they work perfect, just have to be careful not to throw away. Lost one that way, my husband tossed it thinking it was a k-cup
I don't think it will work because the 2 holes that the Keurig punches in the Kcups work to keep the water inside the unit when it brews. Let me know if that works. I have found alot of coffee that is just as good as starbucks and I drink alot of coffee.
