Make stronger K-cup coffee with your “My K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filter”
I love my Keurig Coffee Maker. My wife and I were wasting a lot of coffee anytime we brewed a pot with our 12 cup coffee maker, and it felt like we were throwing money down the drain (pun intended :). The Keurig solved the wasting coffee problem but definetly did not improve the cost issue. K-Cup aren’t cheap, and we were buying a new box of cups every week (around $6 – $8). Solution? Get a reusable filter. Sure, the convenience of the K-cups are great, but adding a couple of steps in order to save some money was worth it to me. However, the result of the coffee was dissapointing. It just wasn’t strong enough. The reason, I think, for the weak coffee is that the water filters through the coffee on all sides of the wire filter, compared to a small hole in the disposable cups. The water just doesnt have enough time to brew. Well I think I solved the problem! Check out the picture diagram below to see how to brew stonger coffee with your “My K-Cup”.
What you need.
– Keurig My K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filter
– 1 used Disposable K-cup
– Knife or scissors
Take the used disposable K-cup and cut off the top of the plastic where it starts to get wider. You don’t have to be perfect with your cut as you can see from above. Empty out all the coffee and the filter so that all your left with is an empty cup with a hole punched in the bottom of it.
Place the empty cup inside your reusable cup. It should fit perfectly.
Put your ground coffee into your wire filter and then slide the filter into the plastic casing. It should fit easily.
I think you can figure the rest out from here…
Enjoy some strong coffee 🙂
