Dec 18, 2014 By Abraham 2

Try as she might, however, the lid would not come loose. She even went so far as to risk her fingers and pry it off with a knife. But then…

Besides infuriating many of their most loyal customers, this design change has also embroiled Keurig in lawsuits related to anti-competitive practices. So perhaps they’ll reverse the decision at some point.
