Re: coffee grounds in cup
This is caused by the water overflowing the filter. If you changed brands of filters, try going to a different filter that is not so heavy. If you haven't, the hole in the bottom of your filter basket might have built-up coffee in it, slowing the flow down. Try putting a sharp knife in the hole & turning it around to clean off any build-up.

A lot of people have luck with clearing the needles to improve their Keurig's operation. Here's how:
Take an ordinary paper clip, and make it into an "L" with about 1" on the short side. Use the short side to probe up into the puncture needles on the top side of the K-cup, and the dispensing side as well. Frequently, grounds escape the K-cups and get trapped in the needles.

I had some coffee grounds stuck up in the cone shaped hole that the water comes from at the top. I had to use a very long toothpick but it broke up some of the grounds that happened to get caught up inside. Before doing this, I went through 24 oz of vinager ;) .. the toothpick worked!
The problem you are having is common when these units have been in use for a while. There is a sludge buildup preventing the brewed coffee from leaving the brewer soon enough. Straighten out a paper clip and use the wire to open up the blockage in the hole where the coffee would enter the coffee cup. You may have to go up from the bottom in order to do this thoroughly.
After I posted this I decided to descale the machine again, even though I'd just done it a couple of weeks ago. After descaling and rinsing I tried running water through the brew group by pressing the pre-ground button, then holding down the big cup button. Still no water, but then I turned the little knob on the coffee dispenser counterclockwise, about half a turn. It worked! I rinsed it well, then made a cup of delicious espresso.
