Is there a water filter on this coffee maker that needs to be replaced or cleaned? We've had this unit for a year and it has worked well, but recently, we have started having some problems. Don't know if this one can be fixed or get a new one. Feb 12, 2013
No, there is no water filter that I am aware of, just the water reservoir. The instructions recommend using filtered water for the best taste, but we use tap water and the coffee tastes just fine. About the only problem I have noticed....and it's an annoyance, but not a deal breaker.....if I make more than a couple of cups, I have to hold the "brew" button down for a few seconds in order to make the unit start the cycle again. Other than that, nothing.
They work with the KG5, you just have to figure it out. I couldn't figure it out at first. I could not snap the lid down because the Ekobrew was just slightly too tall, so whenever I made coffee I put something heavy on top to keep the lid from popping open. But then, my wife pressed down on the front lip (trigger, button, whatever you want to call it) and then you hear it snap into place. That's all you gotta do! Hope you didn't throw them away!
works for me - no issues
If you only ever brew one cup of coffee at a time, the Keurig is fine. But, this one has a small reservoir (24oz) which I think makes it a better option over the DeskPro. You should also take into consideration the size of the cup you like to drink. This machine has a 6oz or 10oz option. The B130 DeskPro brews an 8oz cup.
Has anyone had any success using reusable K-cups? What brand? Ease of use? Flavor using your own coffee? Mar 6, 2014
I use the Handy Coffee Cups reusable ones that I purchased at Menards in a three pack. You do have to use a slight amount of force and push down the handle of the Mr Coffee until it snaps into place. Not a lot of force just make it snap closed. Very easy to use and clean and the regular Folgers I used tastes good. You do have a small amount of very fine grounds that are in the bottom of your cup but I have not tried any other grinds to see if you can get rid of that. I would think any of the reusable cups would work the same way.
Are there supposed to be grounds all inside the brew head afterwards?! as in EVERYWHERE Dec 19, 2012
No. Check to make sure the bottom AND top is being pierced. Also, with the Mr. Coffee version, the K-Cups can sit a little crooked so make sure it is centered and not a bit crooked in the holder. If that doesn't help . . . you may have a major problem.
