Yeah, I was kind of thinking "Sheesh, if they think r/coffee is snobby..." And ironically, all the posts I've ever seen in r/coffee about K-cups have been helpful. They usually kindly point out the limitations of single-serve brews, but also highlight their convenience and reliability.
On a good note, though, in the "any publicity is good publicity" category, note that a lot of comments in the "reply" post, http://www.reddit.com/r/Coffee/comments...o_is_here/
, are along the lines of "I'm glad that snobbery post hit the front page, because I never knew this subreddit existed, and now I'm subscribed."
I admit, though, I kind of like to see these posts every now and then - if anything it's a good reminder never to take anything too seriously.
