I have a filter coffee maker with a plastic coffee drip holder inside (e.g. K-cups). This almost boils the water as it drips through.
There are concerns that these plastic coffee containers may leach BPA and other toxic chemicals into the coffee.
For example: The Mommy Illuminati:
But now there are K-cups- a fresh cup of plastic, er- I mean coffee, brewed into your cup every day. Hot water temperatures and acidic ground coffee amplifying the leaching effects to new heights.
It goes on to warn of dire results from overdosing on such chemicals.
Do these coffee machines release toxic chemicals from the plastic (ignoring the regular contents of a cup of coffee)?
