Get a STRONGER Brew from your My Kcup
I'm pretty sure I'm doing this correctly, but water keeps gushing out of the filter. I tried lowering the gasket and enlarging the hole, but it won't work.
I wouldn't use hot glue because of heat concerns
Thanks so much for this information. Just scored a Keurig at a garage sale today. Tried it and liked it okay, but the coffee was a little bit weak for my taste (using the K-cup) Looking forward to trying it with my own coffee tomorrow using your tip for a stronger brew.
Wouldn't it be easier, if possible, to just make the hole in the My K-cup sleeve a little smaller, thus creating the correct 'back pressure' thus obviating the need for an empty used K-cup? Perhaps plug with hot glue and open a smaller hole? ???
O__o That worked really well.
Thanks for the suggestion! Works great for me, and much cheaper!!
Just tire the authors instructions, right after a cup of coffee using just the screen filter. I'll be darn it works. Stronger coffee. Did have to work the plastic cup with the scissors until I was able to fit filter into plastic cup and still close the cap. Just a little enginering .
Works great! Thanks for the idea, so simple and tastes so much better.
I have the new k cup thing that you make your own brew in and it does not have that gold filter it has no filter. will this still work? It snaps into the holder.
Having recently decided to rethink my spending habits, I decided one item to cut out or cut back on was my K-Cup purchases. I am a big coffee drinker and was spending way to much money on the cups. Like others, I started using the My K-Cup, and I was unimpressed with the weak brew. I promised myself I was going to take a K-Cup apart to see how it was constructed, but just as I started, I decided someone had probably already figured out and solved the problem so I Googled it. Yippee!!!!! This is the best instructable in the world! I inserted a new K-Cup to poke the hole and followed the directions from there (I made almond mocha ice cream with the coffee). It was a Starbucks cup, and I had to cut it a little more to get it to fit as shown in the picture. I knew it worked the second I saw the rich colored coffee coming out. Thank you!
