How many times can I use the same K-Cup?

Keurig K-Cup


QUESTION:

Can I re-use the same K-Cup to make multiple cups of coffee or do I need to change the K-Cup each time?


ANSWER:

K-Cups are designed for one use only. You use the K-Cup once and then throw it away.

If you find that wasteful, and a lot of Keurig brewer owners do, you can get a My K-Cup Coffee Filter.

This is a reusable filter to which you add loose ground coffee each time you want a coffee. After each brew, you clean it out and use it again the next time.

Tea

I used a large mug and brewed English Breakfast Tea for the large cup, and then again for the tea cup size (both in the same mug) The result was a very strong very large cup of tea.

I've been using two or three k cups to make my morning brew. I'm going to try brewing 3 teacup size cups with the same k cup in the same mug and see what i get. I have the feeling that waste will be averted. :)

How many good cups from one kcup?
by: carolyn

It kind of figures that if I can get a 10 ounce cup out of one Kcup then two five ounce cups are just as delicious. I'm still experimenting and I'm up to two sevens. Still good.

Multiple cups
by: Anonymous

I get two or three 12oz cups out of most of the K-Cups. The third cup is a bit lighter, but still quite tasty.

This works on some brands better than others, and oddly enough best on light roasts.

If you get something that mixes a powder and it all comes out, like hot chocolate or chai latte mix (and some of the cheaper store brand instants), then you can obviously only get one cup out.

Excellent tasting Coffee
by: Black Steve

I viewed comments about hot to achieve great tasting Dunkin Donut's style coffee. The solutions boiled down to the temperature of the water. Literally, boil the water first, then put it into the coffee maker and brew. The difference is like night and day. I stop using my coffee maker until tonight 01-14-2010. I decided to give it another try. So i boiled the water first, then normal brew, BIG DIFFERENCE! Try it for yourself. Let me know what ya think! It's better brewing, much better taste! Thanks Coffee Detective. My case solved for bad tasting coffee. Hotter brewing water was needed!
