Rated 5 out of 5Â by Carol0 Great addition to my coffee pot
I realize the Keurig has coffee you can purchase for it already to pop in to the place it goes, but this was purchased just in case we ran out of them or wanted to use coffee we already had.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by mizziemuffet Great and no waste
I love the convenience of the Keurig, but do not like the waste produced by the non-reusable k-cups. They really should make the non-reusable k-cups compost-able. I also do not like that most of these K-cups do not produce a strong enough cup of joe. In any case, this re-usable k-cup answers all my concerns about the Keurig. It helps to significantly reduce waste, plus helps make a stronger cup of coffee. A trick I learned by trial and error is to fill the k-cup 4/5th of the way with fairly coarse coffee grounds. Then dip the k-cup in a bit of hot water to help the coffee grounds expand before using it, which makes a strong cup of coffee.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by Valerie28 Not good! Great idea but Keurig is going to have to redesign (enlarge) the opening that holds the filter basket (same opening that holds the coffee pods) before this filter basket will ever work well. It states you can fill your coffee grounds up to a certain point but you end up with alot of grounds in your coffee. I tried putting my coffee ground levels lower and lower and lower....still grounds in my coffee. At that point, the coffee was so weak I would never use this basket anyway. They need a larger filter basket to hold the grounds and that won't happen until they design the pod opening bigger!!! Waste of money...they had to have known this issue!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by silber13 It works but...
I bought this thing to save money since I'm drinking more coffee now than before thanks to the convenience of the machine. Cleaning this thing after each use can get annoying but my issue is mainly with the weak brew. I feel like I'm drinking hot water with creamer when I make coffee with this filter... I'd be better off going back to my old coffee machine. I'm so disappointed.
