College kids run on coffee. It’s what keeps 8 a.m.-goers awake, it provides the afternoon with a boost of energy and it’s the best friend to the late night studier.
But as final week approaches, and there’s no Flex to be found, the single serving Keurig machine comes in handy.
But wait! K-Cups packs are expensive, and college kids can’t afford to spend that much on coffee. Here’s where the reusable K-Cup coffee filter comes in to play – the solution is buying a cheap pack of coffee grounds.
I saw this at the store and thought it was absolutely perfect. One, because I’m a coffee addict, and two, because I go through my Flex like crazy.
So I got myself some Dunkin Donuts coffee and the filter, and was excited to try it out.
The next day I got up early to make my coffee. I opened up the pack and poured the coffee grounds to the fill line.
I placed it in my Keurig and pressed brew. The machine functioned just as if it had a regular K-Cup in place, and my room had a wonderful coffee aroma.
Next, I decided to see how strong the coffee would taste with different amounts of water. I have a Keurig mini so the water amounts go six, eight and 10 ounces.
I tried it out on each water amount and each time the coffee turned out to be pretty perfect. Not too strong and not too weak.
As the week went on I continued to use the K-Cup filter and it continued to work perfectly for me. It’s a great product, especially for broke, college kids in need of a daily coffee boost.
The product was only $6, so it’s definitely something worth getting.
Although the premade K-Cups are a little bit more convenient in the morning, I think the extra minute for putting the coffee in the filter is absolutely worth the money saved.
I would recommend this product to anyone who has a Keurig. It’s much cheaper than buying the actual K-Cup packs and the coffee tastes the same.
I can see myself using this product time and time again, and it’s going to be a real lifesaver when it comes to midterms, finals and my daily coffee fix.
