People do realize they can use their own coffee grounds for the keurig, right?

Edit: I'm not trying to discredit you or the article, but there is a perfectly fine green solution already available and not mentioned by either you or the article.

u/nodsjewishly · 16 pointsr/wheredidthesodago

>You can make better coffee if you're into that sort of thing.

no shit. it's about convenience. being able to pop in a pod for tea, hot chocolate or coffee and having it available in a couple minutes is pretty fantastic.

> Also the pods are very difficult to recycle and only parts of it are recyclable.

Keurig My K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filter

u/johnsgunn · 12 pointsr/tea

The K-cups for tea are generally garbage compared to good loose tea, and way, WAY more expensive. I use my Keurig all the time for tea in 2 ways -

Run it with no K-cup as a quick way to get hot water into your cup or single-serve reusable pot/steeper.

Buy a reusable filter and use it for tea instead of coffee.

u/horbob · 10 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

Hey man, your choice, but can you at least use one of these instead of the little plastic cups they use? Those things are hell for the environment, and usually end up floating in oceans, choking and killing sea life. The reusable k cups also end up being cheaper over time as well because buying a tin of coffee give you more bang for your buck.

u/Nefarious- · 9 pointsr/Homebrewing

I think the same thing every morning when I make a cup.

FYI, you should invest in this

u/mountainash- · 8 pointsr/Coffee

You could try a reusable pod like this one if it works with your office's keurig.

u/bludragon76 · 7 pointsr/videos

Best $10 Ever Spent

I use the 33.9oz container of Folgers from the local grocer which gives me roughly 200 cups of coffee for about $10, about $0.05 a cup

u/cg001 · 7 pointsr/technology

I work at a retail chain selling these things and I always recommend the reusable filters.

The K cup packs are bad coffee and too expensive. With this I get whatever coffee I want and I can make it as strong or as watery as I want. After a few times you figure out how much you want.

Saves a ton of money paying for the 10$ Dunkin Donuts coffee at walmart for something like 50 cups or 20$ for 16 pack for 16 cups.

u/LoudMatt · 7 pointsr/Coffee

A reusable K-Cup filter, filled with good, fresh ground coffee from your favorite roaster! You can get a small hand-cranked grinder if you want to kick up the freshness factor.

u/SecretlyBadass · 6 pointsr/canada

I use these re-usable cups, where you add in your own coffee and just dump it out when you're done. That way I don't have to pay the inflated prices for the K-cups and it's more green.

And 200 cups for $15? Are you re-using your coffee grounds 6x over? No coffee I know of is that cheap.

u/I_AM_THE_LIQUEUR · 5 pointsr/gadgets

If you're concerned with the waste, buy one of these Reusable filters

Its the only thing i use in mine, and you can use whatever the fuck cheap coffee you want, and fill them a bit more full with decent coffee and it tastes better. Highly suggest it! We even dump our grounds out of it into a composter.

u/midnighteskye · 4 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I think it is something else.

I think it is little gnome miners in your body farming bloody bits to feed to their pet dragon that sometimes causes you heartburn when its unhappy.

I hope you feel better inside pain is the worst.


u/PopoTheBadNewsBear · 4 pointsr/Coffee

The standard opinion toward the Keurig is not a positive one. The consensus is that the pods contain subpar, already stale coffee, and the machines are not capable of heating water to a high enough temperature to properly brew coffee.

But what really matters is if you like it - if coffee comes out that you enjoy drinking, fuck the haters, and keep using the Keurig. I personally dislike Keurigs, but I think that they are not quite as bad as the community makes them out to be.

Some companies do make reusable K-cups that you can put your own coffee in, but they don't fix the low water temperature issue, and apparently they don't keep a seal well either, leading to underextracted coffee.

Basically, experiment a little and find what you like. You may end up learning that the best coffee that a Keurig can make is coffee that you make without ever touching a Keurig. Remember: the only good coffee is coffee that you like - even if it's from a Keurig!

u/mesenteric · 4 pointsr/Frugal

Stores sell loose coffee filters and cups for them.

u/Fr0gm4n · 4 pointsr/technology

Are you using a real Keurig filter or a knockoff? I've never had grounds in the cup and I've had the same Keurig reusable filter for a couple years. I almost never use the K-cups for my morning joe.

EDIT: I fill the filter to the top and tap it a little to settle the grounds a bit. Also, don't use too fine of a grind.

u/vonHindenburg · 3 pointsr/Coffee

I use a Keurig
for times when I'm working on a project and just want to hit a button every few minutes and receive coffee and mornings when I'm desperate to get out the door. (This is changing, but it's the reason I got a Keurig and the logic has held up for quite a while.)

Main suggestion I'd give is to get one of their new system:

-The cups contain more coffee.

-There is more selectability when it comes to size and brew strength.

-The cups are recyclable.

-If you like strong coffee, traditional Keurigs can't brew a full mug of it from one Kcup. Your cost skyrockets and convenience goes way down if you use two. The new ones are supposed to be better in this regard.

-Keurig and affiliated coffee makers are going to transition more and more to supporting the Vue over time. Selection still sucks for it in most grocery stores, but the balance is already tipping.

-Supposedly, it's easier to make your own cups with coffee that you like. If you do buy a 1st gen system, I'd recommend not buying the "Keurig My K-Cup". ( I tried and tried but could not get any reasonable brew strength from it. Looking online, this seems to be a common problem. Again, if you do get a 1st gen system and want to make your own cups, look at some of the various products offered online or tutorials on how to reuse a regular Kcup.

-Also, if you buy a 1st gen system, look for brands that advertise "Extra Bold". Anything less will taste very watery on the largest cup setting.

-Don't buy tea with it. Complete waste of money. I never understood why they even bother. The quality is no better than bagged tea of the same brand and, if you want better; loose tea with a metal tea ball and a hotshot with an automatic start is just as convenient.

  • Make sure that you get one with a programmable on/off timer. If you leave it on all the time, it costs a fortune in power. If you have to turn it on and wait the couple minutes for it to heat, the convenience factor is just about gone.

    In any event, good luck!
u/WtfVegas702 · 3 pointsr/funny

They have a kurig insert that works with that brand that you can fill with any bagged coffee. Saves way more money.

In case anyone is interested. Target also has another brand but same idea.

u/ununiqueusername · 3 pointsr/Coffee

I think this is what you're talking about: refillable K-cup

u/graphicsaccelerated · 3 pointsr/Coffee

Well roasted coffee and one of these

u/limac333 · 3 pointsr/keurig

Almost all of the Keurigs and other K-Cup brewers will dispense just hot water, you just press the brew button without a K-cup in the brewer.
This is a reusable K-cup for using your own coffee.

Some other things to consider, is cup sizes and water capacity. Most brewers have more options on how much water to dispense for a cup of coffee. Which is handy when you want to make smaller or larger cups of coffee. Along with that, some have larger hoppers that hold water before it gets heated for making a beverage. The only real benefit of a large water tank is you don't have to fill it as often. If your boyfriend is only a light coffee drinker, the tank size wouldn't matter too much as it wouldn't get drained that often anyway.

All that being said, This is probably the least expensive one, only does 8 ounce cups, only holds enough water for one cup.

Something like This is your typical Keurig, 3 cup sizes (6,8,10 oz), 48 oz water reservoir

Personally, I have a model very similar to This one except I bought it from Costco. You can set it to automatically turn on and off in the morning on a timer, 5 cup sizes (4,6,8,10,12 oz) and a 72 ounce reservoir.

I would recommend looking at Costco, Bed Bath and Beyond, Target, etc. because you occasionally run into some deals. Good Luck.

u/xaffinityx · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

K-cup thing so I can use my own coffee and tea instead of buying over priced coffee and wasting all that plastic. :)

It's the weekend!!

u/MarkDrees · 2 pointsr/Frugal

Luckily there's a slurry of companies that make reusable k-cups, including Keurig themselves. I can't vouch for their quality compared to regular k-cups, let alone a regular old cup of coffee, but it certainly seems to solve the issues you have presented.

u/duseless · 2 pointsr/Coffee

Did anybody else post this yet? I'm not into this method of course, but for those out there that are...

u/MissMooch · 2 pointsr/Frugal
u/dittomuch · 2 pointsr/canada

I might be missing something but it appears these are for sale from Keurig for the older and the newer machines. Beyond the fact that people have been selling these on ebay for years....

Help me get why I care about this Vancouver company doing what is clearly being done anyway.

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/Coffee

K-cups are really expensive, not to mention the machine itself. Since you don't want to buy new equipment, you can buy this guy. The pre-ground stuff that comes in those pods has lost all of it's CO2 (essential to get an awesome cup of coffee) and it's probably been freeze dried. Now that little cup is $15. You can get a french press for $15.

As far as something that tastes like the blend you have- no idea. Because of the pre grinding they'll have lost a ton of aromatics, so it's hard to say what you are even tasting. It says that the blend has beans from Central Am and Indonesia. Start with that.

Anyway, I know this isn't want you are looking for, but I would sell that Keuig and with the money buy a small burr grinder (used) and a small french press. You'd have plenty left over for weeks and weeks of fresh beans. And you will save money in the long run.

u/SeanzieApples · 2 pointsr/worldnews

I use this thing at home. It's not as convenient but I'm the only coffee drinker in my house and I just want to make one cup so it works for me.

As much as I loved using K-Cups, the price alone isn't worth the convenience. But I'm also glad I'm helping the environment by being frugal.

Keurig 5048 My K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filter - Old Model

u/gba_13 · 2 pointsr/videos

You can fill these with any ground coffee of your choosing.

You can find them for Tassimo as well. You can make these as well using Youtube tutorials. edit: Got another 13 minutes for Youtube Tutorial?

Or you could just get a Mr Coffee which brews a cup in less than two minutes anyways.

u/LBKosmo · 2 pointsr/ThriftStoreHauls

Make sure to buy one of the re-fillable pods that Keurig makes so you don't have to keep buying individual coffee pods. Saves a bunch of money. These machines are great for making a fast cup of coffee, but the pod cost sucks.

u/purebredginger · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You can do a grill out somewhere. People can provide their own meat and a potluck side and then you can grill it all for them or whatever. If you have a lake near by you can do this at a marina and people can go swimming in the lake too. My cousin had a food truck come to her house and cater our family reunion so you can also look into that. I think it was 20 dollars an adult though (includes feeding kids), so not super cheap but all you can eat and very convenient with no mess.

Happy early birthday and best of luck with this! As long as you get drunk it should be a success. Unless you're not into that then it is a disaster. Anyways, I would like this!

u/FrozenCalamity · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I'm interested in something like this.

u/Yoshiod9 · 2 pointsr/Coffee


You can still make a good cup of coffee with the keurig.

Get a few of these, a hario hand grinder, and some good beans and you'll be pretty happy!

u/Zosma82 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

[This K-Cup Filter] ( so I can get fresh ground coffee from my favorite local place again. I like to support my local shop, and the coffee is so delicious!

u/tg11285 · 1 pointr/AskReddit

They sell filters that you can fill with your own coffee grounds for Keurig coffee makers.

u/TnkrbllThmbsckr · 1 pointr/exmormon

This baby saves me a ton of money on kcups.

Also, your wife is awesome.

u/klitchell · 1 pointr/technology

I don't know about the one OP is talking about but it's basically a reusable filter you can put coffee grounds in.

u/CaptainCoral · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

this is the exact model we have. The little piece the coffe cup is sitting on just slides out, and you can put a tall travel mug perfectly under the spout!
this is the filter you need to use ground coffee, it is easy to clean, and it won't leak grounds.
I love ours, let me know if you get one!

u/kiki_strumm3r · 1 pointr/environment

It's not Tassimo, but I use Keurig's refillable k-cup at home. I looked up "refillable tassimo" on Amazon and they had a few options, but I have no idea if they'll fit your pod. Most of them work great.

u/FourMy · 1 pointr/Frugal

I use THIS one.

u/gooneyleader · 1 pointr/Coffee

If you REALLY have to go the kcup route( which I highly discourage) then you may want to consider getting a few of these. This way you can buy quality FRESH ROASTED coffee, buy a quality grinder and actually drink good coffee rather then stuff that was ground months ago and has been sitting in a warehouse. Doesnt really sound like anyone is drinking espresso so why not just get a really nice drip machine and grinder? Something like this. Grinding a dose of beans and putting them in a filter and pressing a button is not hard.

u/SystemFolder · 1 pointr/keurig

You'll need one of these. You can find them nearly everywhere Keurig products are sold.

u/broken_ship · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Since I worked 12 today (thurs) I get Friday off! I'm going to spend it lounging around with the bestie and having a hopefully brief meeting with my counselor. And sleeping. Lots of sleeping.

Oh! And I'd love this if the shipping isn't too much.

Also, I vent all the time on the daily thread. It's very therapeutic. Don't hesitate to express your feelings there. it's a great place to get support and the people here are so great, with so much helpful advice.

u/zeldaisaprude · 1 pointr/tifu

Who even wastes money on k cups anymore? Just buy one of those things that let you put in regular coffee yourself.

/edit- This thing,

u/Addie_Goodvibes · 1 pointr/dataisbeautiful

Some see these as adding waste and I do agree, however.. at our work people use these and use less of the disposable cups. We require employees to bring in their own reusable mug.

for me personally I like the convenience at home when I have guests each can have their own type and I am not brewing a whole pot of coffee for a few cups.
Also, there are Keurig type re-usable K-pods you can put your own ground coffee into.

I use these at home and work.

u/mavaddat · 1 pointr/explainlikeimfive

The virtual machine interprets the game disc's machine code (now present as a game ROM) at runtime, but the virtual machine already has prepared translation pathways (from specific 64-bit addresses of the ROM code to software interfaces for rendering graphics or rendering sounds) based on the coding and compilation of the virtual machine to the operating system API's. This is why emulators can be OS specific. If they aren't OS specific, then they've been packaged with pre-compiled libraries for Linux API, Mac OS API, and Windows API.

As an abstract principle, the adapter pattern can be applied to any advance preparation of compatibility between two mechanical interfaces, not just software-to-software interfaces. If you buy a special coffee grounds container that allows you to use your own ground coffee in a Keurig K-Cup brewer, then consciously or not, you're relying on the adapter pattern. Or even a special USB to [Ethernet adapter] ( There are hardware to software interfaces (e.g., firmware and/or operating systems) and hardware to software interfaces (e.g., TCP/IP, I²P) as well.

u/lazerusking · 1 pointr/gadgets

For a single cup brewing and loose tea I like my refillable K cup.

u/TheTheoryJackBuilt · 1 pointr/Coffee

We can help you out a little better if you had some sort of budget. When I was 13 I got about $5-10 a week from my parents but I knew others that received more or even nothing at all. I'll try to aim for what a typical intro to coffee setup would look like.

So with any method you use the first and most important step is the beans. They should ideally be whole bean and roasted semi-recently (a couple days to weeks ago). This is going to be a reoccurring purchase for you/your parents depending on how often you drink coffee. Price could be anywhere from $7/lb to $15/lb.

Setup 1: You can buy the $8 reusable keurig pod and grind your own coffee. With this method you could get away with using a regular bladed grinder probably. Or you can step it up a bit and buy $25 this hand grinder that gets recommended on here a lot. I have it, it worked pretty well when I was first getting into coffee. You just grinder your beans, fill the pod, and use as normal. Cost for parts: $8-$34

Setup 2: If you get the same $25 hand grinder you can then get either a $24 french press (give a more oily cup, there will always be particulates in your mug, you can also make ~8 cups of coffee with this method) or you can go with the very often recommended, and my current favorite way to make a quick cup, the $26 aeropress. This only makes 1-2 cups at a time but it's hard to make a bad cup with it. Cost of parts: ~$50

You should look of reviews for both the french press and aeropress methods on here or online to figure out what meets your needs better. If these are still to expensive then you can try goodwills or garage sells.

u/NotThisFucker · 1 pointr/gifs

There's an additional piece you can buy for about $15. You pull out the part with the needle (where you place your coffee packets). The part you pull out is actually a little funnel. You can replace this funnel with another funnel that has a removable washable coffee filter instead of the needle-poking-packet-holder that Keurig is very well known for. This alternate piece has a twist-top lid to prevent the water from flooding the grinds and sending them into your cup of coffee.

u/TheCodeIsBosco · 1 pointr/technology

So, I've already got one of these. I'll use it until my Keurig dies and then I'll go back to the standard coffee pot.

u/Mrknowitall666 · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

if you're using a re-usable gold filter, what exactly ends up in the landfill ?

u/s0matica · 1 pointr/technology

Yeah, my sister bought one for my parents for Christmas as their Cuisinart maker conveniently bit the dust a week or so before Christmas.

They started off just getting mass box of Maxwell House pods from costco or something.

I showed them this:

and they haven't looked back. Can still use whatever store bought or beans they want, and no waste from the lids & plastic pods. I take it this is what Keurig doesn't want people using?! Pretty silly, considering THEY produced this thing...

u/tehDevil · 1 pointr/technology

Where in the article does it say that?

Nowhere, it doesn't even imply that. Even the two articles this article references don't say that.

Here's an official Keurig self-refill cup (

All this means is that the Keurig machines will no longer brew unlicensed single-serve cups.

It would be absolutely stupid of them to remove the self-refill option when every single one of their competitors has it.

I would highly recommend buying one of these though for those times when you do want fresh coffee, and for anyone else wants to use one:
