How to make my own Keurig coffee cups?
I have a Keurig B60 coffee maker and buy boxes of K-Cups most of the time. But it can get pretty expensive. Also, there are times when I run out of K-Cups. I have heard there are ways to make your own K-Cups. Is that true?
I would really appreciate any advice you can give.ANSWER:

You can’t exactly “make your own K-Cups”, but you can come close. There are two ways to go, that I know of.
First, you can get yourself a My K-Cup
. It’s a plastic filter holder that replaces the K-Cup holder in your brewer. You simply fill the small filter basket portion with the ground coffee of your choice, and then clean and rinse after use.
It’s not quite as convenient as a K-Cup, but you’ll certainly save some money.
Another way to go is with a small plastic disc called a My-Kap
. With the My-Kap you use it as a reusable lid for use on actual used K-Cups. It’s kind of messy. First you get a used K-Cup and cut the foil lid off the top. Then you rinse it, removing the coffee grinds, but without damaging the paper filter inside. When you’re ready to brew, you fill the K-Cup with ground coffee, attach the My-Kap lid and then use it like a regular K-Cup. The used K-Cup filter is good for about five brews, and then you have to cut up another used K-Cup. Very cost effective, but messy and you do need to buy some K-Cups so you can reuse them.
Finally, to save on the K-Cups you do buy, you could sign up for Café Express
from Green Mountain Coffee
. You get automatic delivery and you save money on every box.
