First, and most important, you need to adjust the gasket on your Keurig machine. If you look up under the lid at the "nail" (the sharp water spout that punctures the commercial K-cups), you'll see a black rubber gasket around it. PULL THAT DOWN about a centimeter (don't pull it all the way off). This gasket provides the seal necessary to prevent the pressured water from squirting out the top of the K-cup. The filter assembly sits a bit lower than commercial K-cups, so it doesn't make good contact with the gasket, causing hot water to leak and splash onto the counter and into your coffee. Pulling the gasket down will prevent this from happening. Doing this once will be sufficient for subsequent uses of the filter (the filter assembly will push the gasket back up the "nail" to the optimal position), but you may need to do it again after using a commercial K-cup (you can test it with an empty filter to see if it splashes so that you don't waste coffee if it does). THIS SHOULD BE IN THE MANUAL, under troubleshooting if nothing else. I found out by calling Keurig customer support. If you do not experience splashing or leaking then you may not need to do this step.
Second, as mentioned elsewhere, you may want to insert the outer sleeve of a used commercial K-cup inside the filter housing (outside the filter) in order to provide a smaller exit hole for the water and thus give the hot water more time to brew a stronger cup of coffee. Simply use an X-acto or sharp blade to cut around the rim of a used K-cup (just under where it gets wider at the top).Read more ›
I have had my Keurig B-40 Elite for about a month now, and I've had great success with it. Bear in mind that if you're using the reusable filter, you must first remove the black plastic K-Cup holder from the unit's filter assembly (instructions on how to do this are included with "My K-Cup"; the black piece in the coffeemaker's filter basket doesn't act like it's supposed to come out, but it is, and it does).
Also, I've read elsewhere that some people don't like having to remove the reusable filter and clean it out after every use. However, I've found it to be a relatively simple affair: the reusable filter doesn't drip when you remove it, and takes about 30 seconds to rinse out after each use. You can use it again right away to brew successive cups.
One caveat is that the output splashes a bit when using the My K-Cup filter, so I always have a damp paper towel at the ready when I brew a cup. That having been said, I'm really happy to be using my own coffee and saving lots of money in the process. Those who are, like me, loathe to shell out 55 cents a cup for K-Cups will probably really like the new My K-Cup.
There is a needle on the top that, when the handle is closed, inserts into the hole in the reusable filter. Surrounding this needle is a rubber gasket. Gently pull this gasket down a little bit. Be careful, not to pull it off completely. Once I did that no more mess and better tasting coffee.
Take a used K-Cup and cut the top foil off of a K-Cup. Cut the paper filter out of the K-Cup. It's okay not to cut it all the way off of the rim of the K-Cup because you will need to cut the top of the K-Cup (where it gets wider at the top). You need to cut the top of the K-Cup off because you need to fit the K-Cup shell into the My K-Cup holder. Once you slide the bottom shell of the K-Cup into the holder, you can add your coffee into the My K-Cup (tapping or gently pressing the coffee so that it is not loose inside the filter). Then place the My K-Cup filter into the holder and cover as normal. When brewing, the K-Cup shell surrounds the My K-Cup filter and slows down the water by making it pass through the punctured hole that the prepackaged K-Cup normally uses.
The great thing about this is that you can re-use the K-Cup shell that you cut apart over and over so once you have cut one apart you don't have to worry about it again- use the My K-Cup as you normally would.
I'm hoping Keurig will have figured this out in the near future and add a premade piece that is included the My K-Cup, but until then, I have found that this solves the problem of weak coffee.
