I just got back from a week at POR. I can't believe in all my research and reading nobody ever mentioned that the in room coffee makers have coffee pouches, no filters. I brought a pound of good coffee with me because I knew there wasn't really any good coffee around. I had to use paper towels as a filter until I went to Walmart and picked up some filters. If you are planning to bring your own coffee, also bring some filters. It's a 4 cup pot and the filters I bought were for a 3" base. Once I had the filters the world was right again.
