Step 2: Tricking the Sensor

Using a razor knife or an exacto. Cut the top of the k-cup off so you're left with a flat disk.

Step 3: Attaching to the Cafe Cup.

pop the center plastic piece from the cafe cup.

Step 4: Attaching to the Cafe Cup

Cut a small x in the disk you made from the k-cup. Then cut through the plastic rim on one side.

Step 5: Attaching to the Cafe Cup

Place disk on top of cafe cup. Then using the plastic plug you popped out of the cafe cup press back into place over foil of the disk. Use as before. the sensor is optical and searches for the little cups of coffee with the star above on the rim.

    Theres also a cool magnet hack to open up the full menu for everything. Theres actually a ton of little hacks to the keurig 2.0.

    I don't have the "snap in disk" type re-usable kcup so I sometimes have to re-adjust, but I'm tinkering on how to fix it.

    Well done!

    It's sad that there's DRM on coffee. Glad people keep finding way to circumvent it!
