Save on Keurig cups with this reusable Coffee pod

Posted: November 6, 2016 in Uncategorized

Coffee has been my go-to-drink since I first had my first cup when I was in high school. I drink coffee not just to wake me up in the morning, but also to keep my energy through the day, to complement my food, and even as a pre-workout! I drink coffee too much that my wife thinks coffee is equivalent to my water. I used to drink up to 6 to 8 cups of coffee when I was in University especially during sleepless nights of studying. Recently, I’ve been trying to reduce my coffee intake to 3 cups a day or less. 

It’s been my practice to brew my own coffee and bring it with me on a contigo container (or two). Brewing my own coffee saves me a lot of money compared to buying coffee every day from coffee shops. I understand love for coffee, but I don’t get how people can spend so much just from buying coffee from Tim Horton’s or Starbucks! Brewed coffee on the other hand is great for sharing and is a lot less expensive than asking other people to make pour you a cup.

My wife and I got one of the best gifts ever a few years ago – a Keurig k 700 hot brewer. Using a Keurig coffee maker is an easier and faster way to make coffee. It’s very useful on days I’m rushed, or when I just want to indulge myself in a single serving of a special flavoured k-cup. 

K-cups are of course costlier than ground coffee, but it’s worth the indulgence. What I actually don’t like about the Keurig pods is that they can be wasteful – imagine how many used pods go to the garbage each day! I love coffee, but I also love to keep our mother earth alive. The solution to this dilemma is to use Reusable Keurig Cups. There are many types out there, but I think I found the best one! Of course, Keurig has its own version of reusable K-cups (you can check them out here) but the brand dictates its price. I was able to purchase functional resuable K-cups from Amazon and they work great. 

They are the “Pureblue Brew Coffee Baskets” and you can get two pieces from Amazon for only $9.49. Check them out here. 


Now I only buy ground coffee bags of different flavours and I can choose which one I’d like if I only want a single Keurig serving. From the picture above, you can see I enjoyed a ‘Barako coffee,’ a coffee derived from the Liberica type which is stronger, bolder, but smoother and is rare in North America. 


The PureBlue Brew Coffee Baskets are easy and straightforward to use: open the container and pour a generous amount of grouns coffee of your choice, lock the lid and use it like any other K-cup. Just make sure there’s no coffee ground bits left around the rim so you can close it properly. Also, you only need to fill it about 3/4ths or less, depending on how strong you want the flavour in your coffee. They are also very easy to clean: simply scoop out the used coffee from the basket to your garbage, then submerge the reusable cup in a bowl filled with soapy water to make sure there are no leftover coffee particles, wash then rinse.
