Did you know it takes less than a nanogram (or less than one billionth of the mass of a penny) of your dried saliva for scientists to construct a digital portrait that bears an uncanny resemblance to your very own face?

Good.  Now figure out the recycle or biodegradable thing and it's a total win.
In light of Keurig's recent DRM reversal, we decided to revisit all of our single-serve coffee coverage to see which models have reusable My K-Cup-style coffee filters.
