After trying my first Tim Hortons K-Cup, I found myself with yet another reason to take pity on Canadians.
Update (19 July 2014): I wrote this almost a year ago. Sometime between then and now, Gevalia fixed the problem. I’ve now gone through four boxes, and not a single K-Cup has given me a problem. The K-Cups look the same, but they feel as though they are made with a much more rigid plastic.
