Coffee in the Rooms at the Poly?

Hi! We are staying at the Poly for the first time next week! I'm so excited! My husband is more excited about Kona coffee than anything else! LOL! I know we can get a good cup of coffee in the resort, but can anyone tell me what kind of coffee is provided for the coffee maker in the room? Thanks!

NEW WDW ROOM COFFEE COMING TO WDW RESORTS: (3/26/2012)

1) Resorts are converting to Cuisinart dual-cup "pod" coffee makers.
. . . the room is stocked with 2-reg & 2-decaf coffee pods and 2-teabags
. . . the coffee is 100% Arabica bean, very tasty
. . . eventually all resorts will have these during 2012, except DVC rooms
. . . brews one cup at-a-time, or two cups side-by-side simultaneously
. . . brews 8-oz cup of coffee in less than 3 minutes
. . . illuminated power button and shuts off when water reservoir is empty
. . . separate water reservoir for each side
. . . one side can make coffee while other side does plain water for tea
. . . mugs are provided in room, but uses any standard size cup or mug
2) Each Cuisinart pod filter makes one cup of brew.
. . . decaffeinated and decaffeinated coffee pods are provided in each room
. . . maids will give more pods if asked, not just the two pods supplied
. . . teas bags are also in each room
. . . tea bags are Twinings Earl Grey Black and Twinings Green Tea
3) Pods:
. . . these are not k-cup pods/inserts, but are standard coffee "pods"
. . . they look much like tea a bag without a string, except, filled with coffee
. . . only one pod can be inserted at a time into each slide tray
. . . some people report being able to insert two pods for stronger coffee
. . . there are other pods that are available on the open market or Internet
. . . cusinart pods are available at Macy's, Amazon, etc


NOTE: All non-DVC resorts are converting to these pod coffee makers.
As an example, Grand Floridian was converted in February, 2012. Most
DVC resorts (SSR, OKW, VWL, etc) are keeping the Mr Coffee makers.

NOTE2: We were told that the Cuisanart was selected due to both price and
the "pod" filters. With the pods, guests are less likely to take extra coffee packs
home, since they can't use them in typical home pots like Mr Coffee or Keurig.
This saves a lots of coffee money.
