We’ve blabbered more than Scatman Crothers about how to manually brew better coffee, but if you still can’t wean yourself from the convenience of the K-cup, foodie and tech writer Matt Buchanan points out that the Keurig My K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filter ($19) offers some reasonable middle ground. This exclusive filter for the K-Cup system allows users to create K-cups with their own gourmet ground coffee, as often as needed. Sure, it’s a bit more work than just pulling another canister out of the box, but the rewards for shoveling your own grounds are many. First and foremost, you’ll simply drink better tasting coffee. It’s also much cheaper in the long run, since the price for a pound of K-cup coffee can work out to be $50, and better for the environment. Combine it with that mini doughnut machine you couldn’t resist buying, and you’ll be a regular ol’ Krispy Kreme in no time.
Editor’s Note: This filter only works with Keurig B40 Elite, B50 Ultra, and the B60 Special Edition brewers. So check your office model numbers before buying.
