So I have one of those coffee machines that uses the little cups of coffee shizzle to, like, brew coffee, and the first brew or so yields a legit cup of high-concentration coffee (to be defiled by excessive sums of creamer et al.), but each cup thereafter is extremely watery. This Interwebs how-to thing says, "Lift the top handle to remove the K-cup after it is done brewing, and dispose of it in a trash can." Does that mean you're supposed to dispose of the entire cup after one use? But the coffee machine asks which size coffee I want for each cup, so if I were to pick a larger cup rather than a smaller one, and we assume that one K-cup is indeed to be used for each cup of coffee, then wouldn't the different sizes vary in concentration? If the largest size were worth one of the little cups, then the smallest size would be worth, like, one half, but I don't see those specifications anywhere in any guide. Besides, there's so much coffee shizzle still in there after one cup. It's literally like 95% full. Unless there's some sort of magical coffee-resin-extraction capabilities being utilized, they're wasting a whole lot of shizzle. Is there some sort of coffee industrial complex in which coffee distributors are made to deliberately expend large amounts of coffee in their products in order to keep the inflation of coffee supply in check? This is exactly the sort of capitalist-oligarchic society that Sanford Dole and his ultra-rich friends had in mind during their imperialist conquest of the Hawaiian kingdom. Well no more, hoalohas! We shall regain our sovereignty!

But seriously, is something wrong with my coffee machine?

The size mostly determines how strong you want the coffee - the smaller the cup, the more concentrated the flavor ends up. Usually. Depends on the brand, as some have more grounds and some have less.

Or you could be like me and buy a plastic reusable k-cup and buy your own coffee. If you make compost the used grounds make an excellent addition. Word of warning, if you buy fair trade or organic coffee you will never drink from a store-bought k cup again. Seriously. You find just how bitter store-bought stuff is when you get the expensive good stuff.

So, just so we're clear, my supposition that each up is worth only one serving is correct? THEN WHY IS THERE STILL SO MUCH COFFEE SHIZZLE IN THERE?

It's meant to be used as 1 little capsule for 1 coffee, if you buy a pack of let's say 24 then you can make 24 coffee, the normal coffee "sizes" are lungo 140-110ml, expresso 40-60ml and ristreto 25-30ml, I don't of any brand of coffee that makes capsules where you can make an starbuck size coffee, you will need to use coffee grounds and another type of coffee machine for that.
There are some brands that say that you can fill it like 180ml but it will be watery as shit (you will need to use 2 capsules for that)

These are however really big

"If you have the option to choose a brew size, choose “Small Cup” (5.25 oz.), “Small Mug” (7.25 oz.), or “Large Mug” (9.25 oz.) based on the size of your cup or mug." 9.25oz = 275ml O.o I never knew something like these existed.

I use nesspresso and dolce-gusto

Thank you, this is exceedingly informative.

I suppose my conspiratorial magic coffee resin theory is the case, then. I will keep this in mind for the future.
