fried plantains

My brother- and sister-in-law gave us a jar of "Holiday Blend" coffee for Christmas, so it's basically a bunch of ground coffee with some ground spices (cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg, I think) mixed in. When I tried to make a pot of it the other day, it basically got all backed up in the filter and only half of the water filtered though into the pot. I thought it maybe had something to do with me trying to make too much at once, so I tried again with a half-pot and the same thing happened. I don't have the right size/shape of paper filters for my machine currently, so I guess that could have something to do with it, but I've been able to use them often before with absolutely no difficulty. Could the ground spices in the coffee have something to do with it? Has this ever happened to you? What am I doing wrong? :[
