To get the best coffee from reusable pods use the right grind such as a medium to fine grind and use good quality coffee and filtered water.

A coarser grind of coffee tends to produce gentler flavors and a lighter color crema.

You can put any kind of ground coffee in reusable pods but you should use medium to fine ground coffee.

It is cheaper to use reusable coffee pods.

Reusable coffee pods are cheaper and can be used for a long time.

Using refillable coffee pods or reusable K cups is cheaper than using single use K cups as the coffee you buy is cheaper and also better in some cases.

A reusable K cup can be used several times and for many years as long as you keep it clean.

Reusable K cups are meant to be reused indefinitely.

Reusable K-cups do taste better than most regular K-cups as you can use better tasting coffee and add enough coffee grounds to suit your taste.

The grind that is best for reusable K cup are medium to fine grind coffee to get the best and most optimal flavor and extraction.

To clean a reusable K cup filter disassemble the K Cup filter before washing and empty the coffee grounds.

Then rinse each component under some running water as well as the filter.

Rinse the cap and top mesh screen by running warm water from the top of the cap through the entrance area and mesh screen.

The My K-Cup 2.0 reusable filter can also be placed in the dishwasher (top rack only)

A reusable K cup should be filled to the max fill line at the top and no further as overfilling the reusable K cup past the max fill line can make the Keurig clog.

If you're brewing a single cup of coffee you should fill the reusable K cup to the first line and for a travel sized mug you should fill the reusable K cup to the second line and put the cap back on after you add the coffee grounds.

When your Keurig does not recognize reusable K-Cups it's usually due to the sensor not detecting the reusable K Cup or because the laser lens needs cleaning.

You can also try repositioning the reusable K Cup and turn it around so that it is directly in the middle.

The reusable K Cup may not be compatible with your Keurig either.

To make good coffee with a Keurig reusable filter grind your own coffee beans fresh or use a good quality coffee and place them into the filter.

Avoid tamping the coffee grounds and place the filter basket into the filter holder.

Put the lid back on the cup and move it to the lock sign and also be sure to use filtered water or bottled water or other good water without chlorine.

The best reusable K cup pod is the My K Cup Universal which fits all Keurig coffee machines and LivingAid Reusable K Cups and Perfect Pod reusable K cups are great reusable K Cups.

When your reusable K cup leaks coffee grounds it means that the coffee grounds have likely gathered in the exit needle of the Keurig brewer or you have used too fine of coffee grounds.

You should also remove and clean the exit needle of the Keurig brewer.

The needle should be an easy fix.

You can use a paperclip to clean out the exit needle, and remove the brew basket to wash it thoroughly with soap and water.

The blockage causes the coffee to back up in the exit tube, which causes the grounds to overflow into the cup.

It is cheaper to buy and use reusable K cups.

The cost to fill a reusable Keurig pod is around 10 cents or less per cup of coffee.

Buying single use Keurig pods costs around $0.60 to $1.15 each for a cup of coffee depending on the brand of coffee.

Buying a canister of ground coffee is cheaper to put in the reusable Keurig than buying single use Keurig pods.

A reusable K cup is worth it as you can add any of your favorite coffee grounds to the reusable K cup and add the amount of coffee grounds you want to make the perfect cup of coffee.

The reusable K cups can be used for a long time and so they are worth the investment.

Reusable K-Cups can last for 10 years or longer as long as you keep them clean.

The special reusable K Cups are designed to last and be reused indefinitely.

To make reusable K cup coffee stronger use a darker roast coffee or if there's room add more coffee grounds to the reusable K cup.

Use freshly roasted coffee beans and grind your own coffee fresh at home.

When using reusable K cups you put 1 to 2 scoops of coffee grounds or 1 to 2 tablespoons of medium to finely ground coffee in the reusable K cups.

A reusable coffee pod can be used for up to 1,000 times although some reusable coffee pods can be used a bit longer.

If you take good care of and clean your reusable coffee pods it can last longer.

When choosing ground coffee for your coffee pods, look for medium-roast beans or medium roast coffee grounds as they work best with reusable coffee pods.

Also, make sure the coffee is ground to the right consistency as a fine-medium grind or an espresso grind will ensure a good brew.

Fill the reusable coffee pod with your desired amount of coffee grounds.

Make sure to use fresh, high-quality coffee grounds for the best coffee flavor.

Place the reusable coffee pod into your coffee machine and follow the same steps as you would with a single-use coffee pod.

After your done with the reusable coffee pod dump the grounds out and rinse the reusable coffee pod out under some running water and allow it to dry.

Medium grind coffee is the best for your Keurig coffee machine.

Medium grind coffee will produce a cup of coffee that is not too strong or too weak.

If you're using coffee beans grind your coffee beans at home to get the best flavor and consistency.

Grind your own beans for the best cup of coffee you can get.'
