Keurig have publicly stated they are switching to using fully recyclable materials by 2020 (I have no idea why it will take them five years to implement something most companies have been doing for decades, but that's beside the point). You can see more at their Web site. You can also get Keurig-compatible (although not "approved") pods that do not have ...

The way I understand your explanation this should, in essence, make a turkish brew. In other words, it can be done, no problem.

Then I pour hot water into the bag while holding it directly over the cup, careful not to burn your fingers (maybe use kitchen clamps to hold the bag if it's too hot). From what I've seen in ...

Usually i made quite a good experience with some of these reusable capsules even tho they are quite expensive. Nevertheless you save in the long-term and also save a lot of waste(had quite a lot of empty plastic capsules in the past). Meanwhile there are some refillable capsules on the market which provide at the same quality a way lower price. These ones ...

They never mentioned about the orientation in their own site. Both sides should work. My experience also overlaps with that. However, as this is an open standard, some producer may produce an ESE in a bit different way.
