The Reuseable K Cup Filter :: How To Reuse K Cups

You may have read my post about the Pros and Cons of the K Cup, in which I explain that the ‘Cons’ of the Keurig brewer were; Control, Cost, Waste, and Quality of coffee.  We can eliminate all of these negatives with one product, the Ekobrew Reusable Kcup Filter.  Other reusable filters don’t have as big of a capacity as the Ekobrew.  Also, other filters only have one or two water injection points, the Ekobrew has a specially designed cone that fully saturates and extracts more evenly.

  • Quality of Coffee – Now you can use your own fresh roasted coffee!
  • Waste – You won’t be throwing away those used plastic K cups!  Reuse your K cup filter over and over again.
  • Cost – Save TONS of money by purchasing your coffee separately from your Kcups.  Buy coffee online, or from your favorite local roaster.
  • Control – Now you can control how strong your brew is.  The Ekobrew reusable filter is deeper than other reusable kcups, so you can make a strong cuppa joe!  We still don’t get to control the water temperature, or brew time, but you’re never going to get everything with the Keurig system.

This product isn’t going to make me suddenly love the Keurig coffee brewer, but it does offer an alternative for those who do.  I will still brew my coffee as I have always done, but now I know what I’m buying all of the Keurig lovers I know! 😀

Customer Review of Ekobrew Reusable K Cup Filter

Excellent item – and thank God it exists

Rating by Gordon K – 12/2011

This work quite well. Make sure you use coffee of an appropriate grind (electric drip grind works well) – if too fine, it will clog up and overflow, very messily. The common blade-type grinder a lot of people use at home does NOT do a good job for this purpose, as it’s very hard to get a consistent grind of the right size with those – you’re better off buying your coffee ground, unless you have a burr grinder at home.  Frankly, I wish there were no need for this product – the fact that those Keurig-type coffee makers exist at all is an outrage against the earth – along with all the other senseless waste that seems to keep getting worse and worse. But given that we need to cope with that situation until people wake up, thank God it’s at least *possible* to get a re-usable container for them.
