Desktop Coffee Maker Launches - Uses Ground Coffee
We don't think this desktop coffee maker we found over at Firebox really fits the single serve coffee profile, but it does make one or two cups of coffee using - yes - ground coffee. Firebox calls this a "fabulously compact, fuss-free Desktop Coffee Maker", but we know better. Grounds lead to a mess you can't clean up easily in an office environment, and that's why we think the Keurig Mini B30 wins hands down in the single serve coffee office arena. And the Keurig Mini B30 also can use ground coffee, but we prefer our mess free K Cups.
Still, we like the design of this little number, and it does make two cups of coffee and include 2 black mugs. We think they didn't have us at "mugs" or "two cups", but the idea is a solid one. We only wish it used the power from our USB port or something more interesting, because right now it's only available in the UK.

That may be true, Ken, but how awesome would it be if it did!
Although I prefer the taste of ground brewed in my Mr Coffee to the Senseo pods, is there a lesser-expensive portable device that uses Senseo pods?
Which taste better, Senseo pods or K cups?
I don't always stay in hotels that have coffee machines in the room so a portable machine would be handy, but I don't want to spend a C note or more.
