Today i’m going to show you about How To Use Reusable K-Cup Keurig K-Duo 12 Cup Coffee Maker with Single Serve K-Cup Pod. So you can get your own coffee grounds and you can make just a single serving with this reusable k-cup. It’s from perfect pod, this is number 2 best-selling reusable k-cup, I bought the combo with this Single Serve K-Cup Pod, it’s you’re gonna put 2 tablespoons in this reusable k-cup and then just put this lid on and then it’s just a little easier to get the coffee grounds into the k-cup.
So i also did another review on when you use these reusable k-cups, you don’t have to use a paper filter but i recommend a paper filter because if you don’t you get sediment in your coffee cup and i’ve got a articles that shows that and explains that, i’m going to show you that i use these perfect pod single serve paper filters and so we’re going to these are kind of form-fitted.
So you’re going to put it in the reusable k-cup but you got to kind of push it down a little bit because you need room for the coffee, you can’t just set it in there and put the coffee, you got to kind of put it in there and kind of form it. It’s okay if it sticks above when we close that it can be smashed between the lid and we don’t want any coffee grounds in this area.
So i think i’ve got it ready we’re going to get our coffee grounds now, so these k-cups work just fine with just regular old ground coffee that you use for just a normal coffee maker, so we’re gonna open up and use. We’re just gonna get 2 tablespoons now. I don’t fill mine all the way up, i like to go just a little bit less and just a little easier to deal with in this reusable k-cup.
So right about there and then you’re just gonna lift this lid and then make sure this lid’s nice and open then we’re just gonna dump it. These are a little bit of work but it’s worth it, i’m just gonna dump it, there in one motion, it’s okay if it mounds up a little bit high. Now it’s okay if it’s a little mounded like that we don’t want to compact the coffee in there but we do want to make sure that, there’s no coffee grounds around this outside lip, it’s okay that the paper is there.
So now when we push this down, we’re going to get a nice tight seal all the way around, okay no coffee grounds anywhere and make sure there’s no coffee grounds on the outside, they’ll make their way into your drink, now you do get a few coffee grounds up at the top and i just kind of tap those out a little bit.
So now this k-cup is ready to go in this k-duo, so now we’re just gonna treat this like a normal k-cup, we’re gonna lift this up the bottom of it’s recessed, so the needle is not going to puncture this reusable k-cup, there’s kind of a recessed area for it to sit in, but it’s just going to sit there, so make sure it’s going to be flush when you put it in and then we’re just going to close the handle, don’t force it, you know it should close just normally and then we’re going to come up here and hit the k-cup side and i brew mine at 8 ounce.
You can brew these reusable k-cups at 10 ounce, 12 ounce. I think the 8-ounce setting tastes really good and then we’re going to watch it brew, so it’s brewing, it through the reusable k-cup, okay it’s all done, so we’ve i’ve tasted this coffee to me, it tastes exactly the same as a folger’s k-cup.
So you’re not going to notice that much difference in the taste, now a k-cup is usually around it about 50 cents, you know plus or minus about 10 cents, i’ve done the math on these reusable k-cups, you can brew coffee for about 25 cents a k-cup, so you can save yourself 25 cents every time, you use a reusable k-cup but they are a little more work but you can see these aren’t the most environmentally friendly.
You got a bunch of plastic and i do have another articles on how to recycle k-cups if you could please check that out, so again this tastes really good out of that reusable k-cup, that’s a good taste, that’s a good tasting cup of coffee. So let’s talk clean up, so i do get a little bit of water on top of this k-cup, i get that with other keurig machines when i use this.
So you’re just going to take the k-cup, so over at your trash, can you’re just going to open the lid ? these can be a little hot, you do have some coffee grounds on the lid but these filter baskets do pull out relatively easy, when they’re not super hot but there’s the filter basket with the coffee in it, now that makes cleaning this really easy.
You just got to kind of wash that out a little bit but the possibilities are endless with these reusable k-cups, you can put any you know coffee that you normally buy that maybe they don’t make a k-cup for and you can brew yourself, just a single serving, so again just a quick articles cleanup is really simple on this, now i’m ready to reuse it again and i just want to help people with this Keurig K-Duo 12 Cup Coffee Maker.
There’s not a lot of information about but the 8 ounce seems to be about right for a coffee but you could brew, if you want it you can brew it up to 10 ounces, 12 ounces. It’s starting to get pretty weak at 12 ounces, so i hope this articles helps that you can use How To Use Reusable K-Cup Keurig K-Duo 12 Cup Coffee Maker with Single Serve K-Cup Pod and you can put all kinds like i said all kinds of different copies in there.
