Here are some tips on how to save on the price of k-cup coffee...

Keurig K-Cups for coffee and tea.

If, like us, you use your Keurig brewer quite a lot, you’ll soon want to start thinking about how to save on the price of K-cup coffee.

As we have mentioned elsewhere on the site, a real downside to one cup coffee making is that it gets pretty expensive when compared to the cost of buying whole beans, grinding them and using a traditional drip brewer, or even a simple French press.

But...as we have discovered ourselves, the simplicity of brewing one cup at a time with a Keurig brewer can become pretty addictive, and expensive.

There are a couple of ways to save on the price of K-cup coffee...

Firsttry to buy boxes of K-cups from local stores. This way you can cut out the shipping costs you incur when shopping online.

Alternatively, see if online stores offer free shipping when you buy three or four boxes at a time.

Second, buy a "My K-Cup" for Keurig Brewers. This is a reusable filter cup that is exactly the same size as a K-Cup and can be used in the Keurig B40, B60 and B70 and any of the newer "original" Keurig brewers.

You simply grind your favorite coffee, fill the “My K-Cup”, and use it in the brewer.

It’s not quite as convenient as using regular K-cups, as you have to clean and refill the filter each time.

But it will save you money, and also gives you access to a much wider variety of coffees.

In other words, you will be able to buy any coffee beans you like, and then grind them and brew them in your Keurig coffee maker.
