My K-Cup Reusable coffee filter - Use your own gourmet coffee in a reusable filter. Exclusive to the Keurig Home Brewing System.

Customer Review :

If you drink several cups per day this is for you.

This works just as advertised. some say it only lasts a few months and I am not sure how that can be. the plastic is very thick but the gold filter is very thin. I bet if you are too aggressive with scrubbing you can destroy the filter. I have had this for a couple of weeks now and I love it for filling up travel cups because you can put more coffee grounds in than are in a K cup. I would recommend this item.

Update - Finally fixed spraying problem.

(Edit of previous notes below)

Fixed the spraying problem. I found out on another board that the rubber gasket that surrounds the upper plunger (which injects water into basket or K-cup) was up too high. Simply reach up (don't get stabbed on the sharp tube) and pull the gasket down quite far. When you pull down the lever to brew, it will reseat itself tightly around the top of the plastic K-cup and the spray is fully eliminated. Now with that said, I brewed two ways, the first with the modified spent K-cup installed as described in several posts on this board and secondly, without it. Without it, the brew is noticeably weaker, but not watered down. IT comes out in a larger stream than with the modified K-cup installed in it, which slows down the stream and creates a better brew. I which Keurig would make the note about the plunger gasket, if they did, it is not noticeable on the instructions. It is important to note still that I have had no brewing issues on the larger machine at home.

Original Post....
My wife and I use one of the premium Keurig brewers at home (I forget the model, but it is the the one you can program the time and has three size options and is about 2 years old) and it works PERFECT with the K-Cup. However, I just purchased the Elite for my office and it works terrible and I get the spraying and dilution everybody talks about. It simply does not work with this model.

I have read the reviews and no surprise they are all over the place as they are being used on different machines. Had I known this, I would have bought the same one I have at home for the office, although it would have been overkill. I'm just keeping my teeth clenched to filter out the grinds!

Keep this in mind when buying the machine on wanting to use the K-Cup. I guess I will need to try the modification everybody is doing, which is freaking ridiculous if you ask me.

Re-Use your K-cup instead of using Gold Screen

I purchased this reusable filter and really was not very impressed. Now I never had an issue with leaking but thought the brew was not strong enough. No wonder- the gold screen does not retain the water, and the large hole just lets the weak coffee just leak out.

I was going to purchase the My-Cap but I am a cheap [...] and was mad I wasted the money on the Keurig reusable filter.

BUT WAIT- brilliant, I removed the foil and emptied the used coffee from an Extra Bold K-Cup and filled it with with coffee from an unused Extra Bold K-Cup (as a test) and it worked flawlessly and the brew was very close to the originial K-Cup.

Cool- for tomorrow , I will setup a 'new' K-Cup with a slightly smaller hole in the bottom, remove the foil but leave the coffee in the filter and test again using the (I already know the taste and feel of the Emerald's Extra bold so I can compare quite easily). The idea of the slightly smaller hole is the water will be retained just a little longer creating a stronger brew BUT still not backup and overflow. Careful not to put too much in to bust the weakened paper filter too. Anyway the hole is a little bigger once the pin punctures the bottom of the cup. I think I have some leeway here for experimentation.

Finally- I will try fine grinding my own coffee (Italian roast) and test it out with my custom used reusable filter knowing that I am going my little extra bit to reduce environmental impact.

Incidently, I credit My-Kap for their idea of useing the paper filter again. Also- I read one comment about someone who was concerned with some type of germs in the space between the paper filter and the bottom of the cup. I rinse mine pretty well. But my real response would be- please grow all the food you eat yourself because if you only knew the details of the food you already eat from no matter what source you are getting it from. Pahleease....

So far I am going to press the idea because the little inconvenience is still less than the espresso machine I had before this and just maybe, just maybe I can get a little closer to that experience.

Thanks- anyone else trying this plesae let me know. I would like to know whats best to get the strongest cup of brew of my B70- which I give the nod to Emerald's Bid Easy K-Cup as my favorite.

Great Product

I was happily surprised with the quality of coffee that this insert made. Since normal k-cups use a paper filter, they taste like drip coffee. This insert makes coffee that tastes like it's from a French press, because it is a mesh filter. I had my coffee ground at #8, and I believe this is the perfect grind for good, strong coffee, with no grounds getting through. I expected that it would be very messy, and drip wet, mushy grounds all over my dorm room, but I was wrong! The cleanup process is surprisingly easy, and just as neat as with a regular k-cup. The machine pushes all of the water out of the grounds, so insert doesn't drip at all. It does not leave any grounds in the brewer, which was my main concern.

Overall, I am not convinced that this insert would save you that much money, unless you're buying very cheap coffee. It takes a lot of coffee to get a good strong brew. However, it is a great option to have on hand for when you run out of regular k-cups if, like me, you only buy them in bulk online. I will be using this reusable k-cup a lot more than I expected to, because the coffee tastes great and the cleanup is not bad at all!

I love the way this item works. It saves the high costs of the k-cups but allows you to enjoy your own coffee blends

Keurig Special Edition B60 Coffee Brewer, 1500W, Variable Brew Sizes: 6, 8 Or 10 OZ, Removable 48 OZ Water Reservoir, Removable Drip Tray, Programmable LCD Control Center, Programmable Turn On & Turn Off, Brew Temperature Control.

Customer Review :

Great for the person on the go.

I bought this because I am the only one that drinks coffee regularly and didn't want to wait 10 minutes for it to brew. I largest size is 9.5 ozs and fits all travel mugs I have. For those of you concerned about the price of K-cups they sell an addapter that you can put your own ground coffee in. I think Amazon sells it for $10. It is worth it and you can make your coffe last much longer.

I liked it so much I got my sister-in-law one for Christmas because she is a coffee drinker and a mom on the go. I think she & her husband will love it.

Easy good coffee, but beware K-cup monopoly

I really like my Keurig, but I've been upset to discover that the supposed brand competition is mostly a sham. Of the *licensed* brands available, all are owned by only two companies (Green Mountain Coffee and Diedrich Coffee), and Green Mountain is now trying to buy Diedrich. Peet's is also bidding, and I hope they win, because otherwise prices and quality will be whatever Green Mountain wants them to be.

As long as there is the possibility of monopoly ownership and misleading branding, I cannot give this more than 3 stars. It is good coffee, though.

Major Flaw

I admit, I do like my new Keurig B60; however...and that's a big however...I had no idea that after the initial start-up, you can never get rid of water in the holding tank (not the reservoir). I called Customer Service after reading the section entitled "Purging the Brewer." Even though it indicates that you can completely purge water from the inner tank, you can't. This was confirmed by Customer Service. There will always be water in the inner tank. If you store your brewer for a period of time, you should clean it with vinegar. Now I'm confused with the remarks under the section "Storage." The last paragraph states that if the brewer has been in an environment below freezing, let it warm to room temperature before using...if water is in the inner tank, it will freeze.

The more I'm thinking of this, the more I'm thinking this isn't really a good idea.

3rd machine in three months

I'm giving this product two stars only because I love the Keurig concept. I love the coffee, the convenience, and the variety of k-cups. Realistically though, the quality of the product makes it worthy of only one star. I was actually impressed to see some people getting 15 months out of the B-60. We have had to return our first two machines after a month of use each, and are now on our third.

I can't completely say that I don't recommend this product, because I like it enough to keep replacing the duds. My advice is, keep the receipt and keep the box, it makes returns and exchanges much easier.

This is the brewer I've waited for...

...all my adult life!

This elegant machine is a must have for serious coffee lovers. It's quick, convenient, even tells you (and shows you with a flashing blue light) when it's time to add water.

My wife and I have vastly different tastes in coffee: she likes a weaker cup and prefers decaf while I want the "real thing" with as much body and taste as I can get. With 200 varieties of coffee available, from plain old decaf to many exotics, problem solved.

The only con so far is a minor one; the trip from the sink to the counter with a full reservoir can be a bit dicey and fitting a full reservoir back into the brewer without spillage has been a challenge. However, I chalk this up to only having the machine for less than a week so it's something that will most likely become second nature once I get used to it.

The only thing the Special Edition doesn't do that the one in my office does is eject the spent K-cup into a bin and of course, accept coins! The K-cup is easily removed with two fingers due to the intelligent design of the holder and tossed into the trash...no runs, no drips, no errors...have you ever dropped a filter full of grounds on the way to the trash? I have!

Serious coffee lover? Get this machine!

Poor execution of a great idea....

I just purchased a KEURIG B77 one cup coffee maker simply because I like the idea of making coffee a cup at a time instead of having a pot (constantly heated - eventually burned) or a caraffe of tempid coffee that gets thrown out. Specifically I liked the option of a "use your own coffee" device which would (should) reduce the cost of using the system. Set up was easy and the system automatically heated its water and was ready to "Brew" when my feet hit the cold kitchen floor this morning - however, the coffee was weak and definately not to my taste. I opened the little filter canister (called the "My K-Cup") and discovered that over 50% of the coffee was dry and had simply been "by-passed" by the hot water, it seemed to have "floated" to the top of the "My K-Cup" and would now be thrown away - no wonder the coffee was weak and watered down. I re-read the instructions for the use of the "My K-Cup" and thought that I may have simply overfilled the device so I reloaded the filter with half my original amount of coffee and "Brewed" again - I watched the stream of coffee which started out dark and quickly turned nearly colorless - again the filter was filled with "by-passed" coffee - I would speculate that the same thing is happening inside the "Pods" which cost as much as $.75 each. While the system quickly heats water and brews quickly it appears that as much as 50% of your coffee is being wasted. I'm headed to the KEURIG web site for advice, but it looks like the device will be going back to the store - my old Cuisinart - Automatic Grind & Brew Thermal is still on the counter and while it makes more than I really need at one time, the coffee is robust, tasty and it doesn't waste my freshly ground coffee by simply pushing it out of the way.

UGH! Second machine stopped working too!

That is right second machine stopped working. This time only after two weeks! Sure we like the convenience but we are totally frustrated that it has stopped working. Same thing happened to both machines... stopped pumping water into the coffee and started pumping into the reservoir. UGH we are frustrated! At the price of the machine and the price of the coffee we will not be trying again.

machine works, coffee is not very good

The Keurig machines work well. I am accustomed to a double espresso of very good coffee. Tried several different k pods. Suspect they are putting a lot of robusta coffee in the pods. The coffee has a poor taste and it causes jangly nervies.
It is a neat and handy system.
Putting mine in storage when my Nespresso machine gets here.
If you are picky about your coffee, advise looking elsewhere.

flush system well...up to 20 times to remove plastic taste. almost returned before i read another review. coffee not very strong, but still good.

Rating :

Waste of money, energy, resources, time. High price of convenience

-Takes up a lot of counter-top
-VERY noisy- almost par with an air compressor
-Small amounts of coffee: 5 oz.
-Larger cup setting = less than 9 oz watery coffee
-Lots of plastic waste for the landfill, OR lots of filter-cleaning
-Did I mention noisy?
-Finer coffee grind=LESS coffee brewed: pump can't handle back pressure &
vents into reservoir. Result is 1-2 oz coffee then cleanup+do-over
-Coarse grind = more watery (but less work for pump)
-More expensive model = much more money, less noise, same issues
-De-scaling process is simple, slow, messy & DOES NOT FIX the problem
-Customer service isn't
-Service policy: Keep buying newer models & throwing them away
-The great Green Mtn Coffee Co's shameless endorsement of Keurig products
-roughly 30% more coffee used overall (thus the endorsement)
-if more than 3 people want coffee, keep a regular coffeemaker handy.
-those little 5-ounce coffees are good!
-works OK for 4-5 months
-average consumer's attention span much shorter than product life.
-looks sophisticated
-great if only 2 or 3 guests want coffee
-slightly cheaper than buying coffee by the cup at a local store

Question : How long does it take to recieve award letter and payment from va disability after the claim is complete
I filed a claim with the va for disability about 7 months ago. Went through all the proccesses already. The other day I asked the VA's IRIS system what the status of the claim was and the responce said the claim was complete. Does anyone know how long it will be before I recieve the letter and payment

You'll receive your rating decision first, then it'll take around two weeks (maybe a bit longer) to receive your back pay award. Getting your letter is hard to tell. I got mine about a week and a half after my claim was decided on.
