A reusable filter for the single-serve coffee maker
Say good-bye to the disposable single use cups.

I came across a reusable coffee filter for the Keurig
single-serve coffee maker while I was shopping the other day that I didn’t know existed. MY K-CUP
reusable filter assembly lets the Keurig owner use whatever ground coffee he wants in the coffee maker.
Instead of throwing away a small, plastic one time use K-CUP each time a cup of coffee is used, Keurig users can reuse the same filter over and over.
For some people, the ease of popping in a pre-measured, disposable K-CUP is appealing. But for those who want to keep as much plastic as possible out of the waste stream, single-serve coffee makers create a dilemma – create a perfect cup of coffee each time or be a friend to the environment? It seems like this reusable filter solves that dilemma.
I’d imagine that after the initial investment of the reusable filter, the MY K-CUP would save money on coffee, too.
