Is the point just to make the coffee stronger, or do people do this with pods to extract better flavor? I'm asking because the Aloha pods are so expensive I'm being a little paranoid about brewing them wrong, especially since I'm using the Keurig/Pod Holster combo and don't have much experience with it. Many thanks for easing my paranoia

My working theory is that prewetting works fine with a K-cup because the pierced foil remains snug against the needle when I put the handle back down. But with the Pod Holster, the hole is larger and pod fabric/paper does not retain its snug fit against the needle when the handle is raised and then lowered.
Then again, I might just be incompetent. I have a B40, old needle style, in case that makes a difference.
