Make Your Own Single Serve Coffee Pods

We're not sure where this person got the required tools they're using to smoosh and turn the coffee into a coffee pod, but the general idea is there from watching the video.

Here are the steps: Get something to hold a traditional coffee filter, fill it with about an ounce of coffee, get another cup sized thing to turn and smoosh the coffee filter into place, and then try it out in your Senseo double cup holder or other single serve coffee maker.

A word of caution: Just like when using the Eco-Pad reuseable coffee filter, getting any amount of ground coffee caught in the double-pod holder where the coffee comes out in the bottom can lead to a plugged coffee holder and exploding single serve coffee maker. Try any of these methods with EXTREME caution.

I make home made pods from time to time for my Bunn. Folding over the top is good, but sealing the folds with a couple of drops of water keeps it closed enough to avoid any leakage of grounds and is even better. Put the folded side up in the pod holder, of course.

Question: By folding the filter this way does the coffee filter remains closed enough at the top to prevent leakage of any grounds which may clog the coffee maker??

I waited to try this out a few times before commenting, but it works wonderfully. It takes a little bit more time than normal pods do, but it's great to be able to fine-tune the coffee I'm making. Thanks so much for the link!
