Great if you modify it slightly.

I guess Keurig didn't want to make the re-usable filter better tasting than the K-Cups or you'd stop buying the K-Cups. Pulling the rubber washer down to the tip of the metal point that pierces the K-Cup fixes the water overflowing. However, the water still flows too quickly and brews a weak cup of coffee. To fix this, I took a USED K-Cup with the hole in the bottom, removed the foil from the top, removed all the plastic liner inside the K-cup, then placed the "hollowed" K-Cup into the filter housing. You may need to turn the housing upside-down on the counter and press firmly to get it to go in far enough. Then put the removable filter basket in and put the lid on. This slows the water flow to make the coffee stronger. Very happy with product now.

Cheap way to brew Starbucks Coffee at Home
Posted by: yambo67 from: on
Yes the filter has its issues with weak coffee. But if it tasted the same, people would not feel empowered to be able to brew their own coffee and save money. The reviews listed here do work and help make a strong cup of joe. This is a must buy. It has saved me a ton of money. I would like to say that if you are complaining about taking literally 30 seconds to rinse grounds from this adapter then get your lazy self out there and buy the disposable cups.

I learned about a fix for this item. I added a video link at the bottom that explains how to make this function better.

Trick people should know about this product
Posted by: JMFlan from: Jamesville. NY on
When I first purchased my K- cup to brew my own coffee it didnt work well at all, the coffee leaked all over and it wasnt a steady stream when brewed. The coffee came out watery and had grounds in it.
I noticed that the hole on the plastic K-cup is bigger than the holes punctured into a disposable k-cup, so i pulled the rubber seal located on the needle inside, down to the tip of the needle then closed it, you can feel how tighter it is when you close it. That prevents it from leaking and gives you a steady brew, now my coffee comes out great! Hope this helps!

It's a must ... unless you prefer the K cups.

I love it because you don't have to buy K cups unless you want to. I use all my own coffees. Easy to clean and works great.

k-cup coffee filter
Posted by: GJR from: L.I. N.Y. on
This filter does a good job but its cost $14.99 is way to high for just a piece of simple molded plastic...It must be cleaned after each use as well.

I have tried all the alternate Keuring devices to brew my own coffe through the machine. None have worked out well. Then I bought this one. This one is actually made by the Keurig, it was worst then the other ones. I follow the instructions step by step. Still comes out watery and tasteless.

Great Product & Money Saver
Posted by: Jeanine2011 from: NC on
This has worked perfectly. It makes a great cup of coffee or tea! The cost savings are great and gives a much larger variety of coffees and teas to brew. Time saving to use prepacked cups and budget saving to use this insert.

I think it is a great way to be able to use my own coffee, for those times I might not have money to buy K-cups. It is a bit pricy but what do you expect when it is Kuerig. Overall it is a good value.

Decent product, just takes some time
Posted by: Tonya8268 from: Murfreesboro, TN on
I think wet coffee grounds are gross. Trying to dump this tiny filter in the trash then cleaning in the sink is somewhat cumbersome. If you're like me and time in the morning is limited and you're making more than one cup, it may not be for you. I am considering the EZ Cup with disposable filters.
