How to Use a Reusable Coffee Filter with Keurig

If you own a Keurig Coffee Brewer, then you are familiar with the k-cup, a small plastic cup with the perfect amount of coffee in it. It is easy to use and it is disposable, but it is also plastic.  If you are trying to lessen the amount of garbage you throw out each week, then you are probably a little bummed about throwing away these plastic cups every time you fix a cup of coffee.

Luckily, Keurig is compatible with reusable single cup coffee filters. So how do you use these filters in a Keurig coffee maker?

  1. Grasp the filter holder lid. Turn it counter clockwise to open.
  2. Pull the basket filter out of the filter holder.
  3. Remove any packing material from your coffee filter.
  4. Wash it with warm soapy water and rinse with hot water.
  5. Dry your filter and place it inside the holder.
  6. Close the lid by turning it clockwise.
Using your filter for coffee:
  1.  Open the holder by turning the lid counter clockwise. Remove the filter basket.
  2. Remove the K-cup holder from the brewer.
  3. Fill the basket with desired amount of coffee. 2 Tbsp. of coffee per every 6 oz. of water is what is recommended by most roasters. Do not fill the filter basket past the mesh of the basket. Be sure that there are no coffee grinds on the top rim of the filter basket.After some debate on the filter on facebook, we tested the basket due to a customer having trouble with sediment in the bottom of her coffee. Be sure that the coffee does not come up to the edge of the mesh and that the coffee you are using is a coarse coffee. Fine coffees can leave a sediment and if the cup is too full a sediment can be left in the bottom of a cup as well. If you are still having trouble and you ordered your Reusable filter from us please call our customer service at 1-800-251-8824.
  4. Place basket in holder closing the lid by turning clockwise.
  5. Place holder into K-cup assembly housing in brewer (remember you must remove K-cup holder first)
  6. Lower handle and brew coffee as usual by select cup size button.
  7. Once brewing is done, lift the handle and remove the filter holder from machine.
  8. You may want to allow the filter holder and filter to cool before cleaning.
  9. To clean take off lid as explained above and remove filter basket. 
  10. Toss grounds and rinse out filter basket and holder. 
  11. Replace K-cup holder into Assembly housing.
