Keurig brewers are hugely popular. People love them for their convenience. It’s super-easy to insert a K-Cup in the top of the brewer, press one button and presto…you get a nice fresh cup of gourmet coffee.
But many Keurig owners aren’t so excited about the K-Cups themselves.
First, K-Cups are expensive. If you drink a few cups of coffee a day, the extra cost begins to add up. Second, K-Cups go directly into your garbage, and then to the landfill…tens of millions of them. Finally, some people aren’t too crazy about the various plastics used in the making of K-Cups.
There are one or two ways around using K-Cups in your Keurig brewer. For example, the My K-Cup reusable coffee filter is very popular. You simply add loose coffee to the filter each time you want a brew, and then place the My K-Cup in your Keurig machine.
The trouble is, adding loose coffee grinds to the filter each times takes some of the convenience out of using the Keurig. Plus you have those wet coffee grinds to deal with.
A good compromise between using regular K-Cups and loose coffee in the My K-Cup is the KiennaCUP pod adapter.
The adapter is inexpensive, made from non-BPA plastic, and uses coffee pods.
As you can see from the video above, you simply place a coffee pod in the adapter, and then place it in the brewer as if it were a K-Cup.
No plastic to throw away. No loose coffee grinds and messy cleanup. Plus you can add the used pods to your compost bin, if you have one. And, of course, coffee pods are a lot less expensive than K-Cups.
If you love your Keurig brewer, but don’t much like the K-Cups, the KiennaCUP pod adapter is worth a try.
You can buy both the adapter and Kienna coffee pods at Amazon.com.
