If you're interested in using your own coffee with a K-cup machine, Amazon's daily deal today is the EkoBrew K-cup device. This unit gets good reviews and even has a dispersion screen, but I have no first-hand knowledge of how well (or, rather, least-poorly) it extracts. It's the lowest price since I've seen.  One is $9.37 or $9.61 (depending on color); 2-pack is $17.16; 3-pack is $24.30. Pad your order to $25 to get free shipping.

To get the single-pack, use this link.

To get the 2- or 3-packs, use this link

Price should be stable all day.

Do these things work pretty well?  Are people getting good cups?

We have one of those machines at work and I've considered a refillable cup for it.  Wasn't sure if the machine produced hot enough water though.

I know this is an old post, but I'll answer in case anyone else wants to know.  I have a Cuisinart SS700, and it is adjustable to 192 degrees.  I know- it's not quite 195, but it's real close. If you use your own fresh ground with a modified my-k-cup, or a good aftermarket use-your own type k-cup, it brews a good cup.  My wife loves it.  Personally, after loading the k-cup thing 2-3 times to get my commuter mug filled, and the subsequent cleanup......well, I just went to a Melitta ceramic pourover.  Easier, faster, and nearly nonexistent cleanup.
