Keurig single-cup coffee machines have changed the way that people make coffee. Unlike traditional drip-style coffee makers that make a full pot of coffee, these innovative machines make a single cup at a time. They brew the coffee quickly, which means that you can make a cup of coffee the minute you want it. Even better, because the coffee doesn’t sit around in a pot waiting for someone to drink it, it doesn’t become burnt or stale tasting.
The only downside to Keurig coffee makers is that they require special cups known as K-cups. K-cups are small, disposable cups that are filled with one cup’s worth of coffee grounds. To use the machine you simply place one of these cups inside, add water and wait for it to brew. Unfortunately, however, K-cups are quite expensive when compared to standard coffee grounds. Not only that, but these cups produce a lot of waste since each cup is thrown into the garbage after use.
One way around this problem is to use the Keurig 2.0 reusable coffee filter. This innovative filter is made from plastic and metal mesh. The top of the filter flips open, allowing you to place your own coffee inside. To use the filter, simply fill it, close the top and place it inside the machine just like you would a standard K-cup. Before you know it you will have a delicious cup of coffee made from standard coffee grounds. These unique reusable filters provide a number of benefits including the following:
K-cups are extremely expensive when you compare their cost to traditional ground coffee. Using a reusable coffee filter in your Keurig machine allows you to use less expensive coffee without sacrificing the convenience of the single-cup brewing system.
K-cups come in disposable packaging that has to be thrown away when you are done using it. Over the course of a year, this can add up to a tremendous amount of waste — especially if you drink more than one cup of coffee per day. Reusable filters eliminate this problem by getting rid of the packaging. After brewing a cup of coffee with a reusable filter, you simple dump the grounds in the garbage or compost bin and rinse off the filter.
Use Any Coffee You Want
Traditional K-cups come in a variety of different styles and flavors. However, these choices may not be your top picks. Using a disposable filter allows you to use your favorite coffee in your Keurig machine. That means you don’t have to settle for whatever flavors Keurig makes. Instead, you can brew a cup of your favorite grind to enjoy anytime you want.
As you can see, the Keurig 2.0 reusable coffee filter offers a number of benefits. Not only is it far less expensive to use than traditional K-cups, but it also reduces the amount of coffee-related waste entering the landfill. Finally, it allows you to use your favorite coffee in your coffee machine instead of having to settle for the prepackaged K-cup flavors.
