I love my Keurig Coffee Maker and if you are like me you probably enjoy experimenting with other non prepackaged coffee blends that aren't available in KCup form. That is where the "My KCup" accessory comes into play. For those unfamiliar, it allows one to brew a cup of their favorite coffee blends without needing to buy them in KCup form (if they are even available). Unfortunately the My KCup in my opinion brews a rather weak cup of coffee compared to it's pre-manufactured counterpart. Rest easy! I have found a fix that doesn't cost a dime! All you need is a "USED" KCup. Follow along. I have photos attached in order to make it easier to follow.
Step 1: What you Need
Here are the materials and tools you will 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
First we need to remove the foil lid of the used KCup using your scissors, knife or fingers. We don't need this to be perfect as we will be cutting the top off a bit when we are finished.
Step 3: Yuck
Once the foil top is removed we now have access to the used coffee grounds and filter. We want to remove these with our fingers and or a pair of scissors. Again this doesn't have to be perfect yet.
Step 4: Clean up that mess!
Discard the foil top, coffee grounds and the paper filter. Saving the white plastic shell.
