Rated 3 out of 5Â by GuidoBandito It works
It's good to have an option to use your own coffee or teas when they don't make a K-Cup version and this does the trick. I honestly still haven't figured out how to make a strong cup of coffee with this, it always comes out on the weak side. If you add more coffee it just wastes it, so I guess you have you use less than 10 ounces of water to get a strong cup of joe. It seems like it brews it too fast for it to do what it needs to do and the coffee grains are not given enough time to saturate.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dim How to fix My K-Cup
Out of the box this item is terrible, but with a little effort it will pay off big time. Simply bring your K-Cup to the plumbing area of your local hardware store. There look for rubber washers. I found one that fits on the inner ring on the top. It was just a little bit thicker than the depth of the ring itself. It makes a perfect seal and I can enjoy fresh ground coffee everyday. I would recomend buying a few washers to find one that works best, you can get them for around one dollar, and it is well worth it. Hope this helps some of you out there. ~Adam

The "My K-Cup" device leaks. Seems there should be a thin food-grade rubber gasket sealing the lid to the filter basket holder to prevent the water from leaking. If the brewed coffee is accompanied by drips of clear water, your device is leaking due to a poor seal. Going to try and fix it myself. Otherwise, this would be great for coffees that are not part of the K-Cup family. If that one issue were fixed, this would get a better review based on cost savings and not being tied down to the K-Cup coffees. I would recommend this IF the one seal issue could be fixed.

I was excited to get this, thinking I could use my fave brand of coffee and save money. I'm so disappointed. Regardless of how much coffee I place into the little basket, it overflows with water, forcing (very hot!) water to spray out all over and dropping coffee grounds into my cup. It's a great concept, but it appears the water can't flow through fast enough or comes through too forcefully (the grounds are pressed to the sides of the basket with a hollow part in the center of the grounds), causing the grounds to overflow out of the top and into the cup.
