Will this fit a k150 commercial Keurig? Dec 9, 2013
NO - And Keurig conceals the fact that their "commercial" K-Cup brewing systems are not compatible (they made a mod to lock them out.) I just talked with their factory customer service. The directed me to a page titled "All K-Cup® Brewing Systems" (www.keurig.com/shop/brewers/all-brewers) and only the HOME versions (first 5) work with a K-Cup. Even though the page even says "All K-Cup" and the model we bought starts with a K (K150) as in K-Cup!! Now that we're stuck with the K150 I see that they sneakily added special tabs to where you would put a K-Cup that locks it out. Makes it hard to close. Causes leaks if you try. Their customer service explanation is that K-Cups are "inconvenient" in an office. Truth is exactly the opposite. All they are trying to ko is FORCE you to use their own non-reusable coffee. And they conceal this dirty trick. And they even lock out THEIR OWN K-Cups. And their non-reusable coffee is VERY expensive. So we've been screwed by Keurig! Anyone found a solution to this problem? Help...!
Will this work with the Keurig 2.0 ? Aug 31, 2014
Keurig is really alienating their customer base with this illegal experiment, which they will lose in the courts. Fortunately, there is an easy way to defeat the illegal 2.0 DRM technology. Rogersfamily Coffee (no affiliation) will give you a "Freedom Clip" with the order of some of their quality coffee, allowing you to use any coffee in your 2.0. http://www.rogersfamilyco.com/index.php/revolution-begun-starts-now-fight-keurig/ If you recently brought home a 2.0 model, I encourage you to support Rogers in their fight to break this monopoly, as well as promote their environmentally sound K-Cup brewing technology -- something Green Mountain seems wholly unconcerned with.
Why would you want to? Instant coffee doesn't get filtered it goes straight into the cup. You could just run the Keurig without putting in a pod for just hot water. That's how I make my hot cocoa.
Loose or bags will work.
Here's what I do with my reusable K-cup filter. I grind my coffee to a size similar to that in the disposable K-cups. Then I put the desired amount of coffee into a size no. 2 t-sac paper tee filter, twist the top closed, and insert it into the reusable K-cup filter after I've removed the metal filter basket. Don't need that metal basket for my method. All you need is the gray plastic outer shell. Works perfectly for me. The t-sac holds all the grounds in place and you can just dump them out once the coffee is done. You can get the t-sac filters on Amazon or the are generally carried is specialty tea shops. Be sure to use the no. 2 or larger bag size. The no. 1 is a bit too small for this purpose. Enjoy! Constance Makela Minnesota
BPA free ? Feb 24, 2014
Hello M Druhm. I have called keurig inquiring about any bpa in their product. Keurig is owned by Green Mountain Coffee Roaster and have informed me that there are no bispenol A in their product or reusable filters. I have found a few websites that indicates the k cup are bpa free but so far haven't found anything specific about the reusable filter.
