Using A Reusable K cup For Your Coffee
Brewing your favorite cup of coffee with a reusable K-cup is both budget-friendly and environmentally-friendly. There are some differences in preparing your coffee with a reusable cup compared to a regular pre-filled K-cup, but the process is just as easy.
How Much Coffee To Put In?
When it comes to filling your K-cup with coffee, there’s no ‘one size fits all’ approach. Depending on your desired strength, you will want to use *different amounts of coffee*. A light cup of coffee can be made with 1 tablespoon of ground coffee. For a medium strength cup, use 1.5 tablespoons and for a strong cup, use 2 tablespoons. When you’re reusing a K-cup, it’s important to *keep in mind that the same amount of coffee may be more potent than when using a pre-filled cup*.
Steps To Prepare Your Coffee
Once you’ve filled your K-cup up with your desired amount of freshly ground coffee, the brewing process begins! Here are the steps for preparing your coffee with a reusable K-cup:
- Put the K-cup in the machine:
Place the top of the K-cup onto the brewing machine and lower the appliance handle.
- Set up the strength:
Set the desired strength of your coffee with the settings of your brewer.
- Start brewing:
Push the “start” button, and enjoy the fragrance of freshly brewed coffee.
- Enjoy your coffee:
Once the brewing is complete, remove the K-cup and enjoy the perfect cup of coffee you just brewed at home!
Using a reusable K-cup means you’re able to customize the strength of your coffee. Depending on your taste and how much coffee you want to put in the cup, you’ll get just the right amount!
