We have a Keurig at work, and I've used pre-ground coffee in it...and it tastes weak and plasticky. I like my coffee strong, so perhaps I need to brew two small cups instead of one large cup?


I grind my own with this. You have to fiddle with the grind to get it to where you like it. I use the largest cup but you could probably do two smaller ones to make it stronger.

My experience is that fresh ground is always better than preground.

Also, you can't fill the my k cup too much or it hoses up the pressure. You don't get a full cup and the machine thinks you need to descale.

That's a nice mill. I have a Krups electric mill that's really loud, especially at night when I make coffee for the next morning.
