Step 1: What you Need
1. My KCup
2. Used KCup (any flavor)
3. Pair of Scissors
In the Photo I have labeled each item I will be referring to in the instructions so there is no confusion of the different parts.
Step 2: Start Destruction
Step 3: Yuck
Step 4: Clean up that mess!
Step 5: Trim-it!
Notice the hole in the bottom that was created by the Keurig machine when it was used. This whole is what is going to create more back pressure in the brewing process allowing the beans to seep more into the water causing a stronger brew.
Step 6: Mmm.... That fits nice!
Step 7: Brew me a Cup of Joe!
Insert the white plastic shell into the My KCup Body as we did in the test fit of the previous step.
Then Fill your Basket with coffee grounds (I have found two mostly level tablespoons to be the optimal amount of grounds).
Place the lid on top and lock it in place and brew as usual. Then "Enjoy your Stronger Brew!"
You can also play around with making your own holes in the bottom of an UNused KCup using a needle or pin to find the right setup for you. But I find the used KCup hole to be as close to simulating an actual KCup brew. I am not sure why Keurig's engineers didn't come to this conclusion on their own. It stands to reason that a self filled KCup should brew in a similar way to an actual KCup.
