Reusable Coffee Filter for Keurig
As we reported last night, Keurig has released a Special Edition B60 only at Williams Sonoma that comes with a reusable filter. The filter will not be available to other Keurig buyers or other online merchants until 2006. When released to other merchants besides Williams Sonoma, the Keurig reusable filter will work in your Keurig B-40 Elite, Keurig B50 Gourmet, Keurig B-60 Special Edition.
Update: : The Keurig Resusable filter is now available at Amazon.com.
"...use either disposable K-Cups or a reusable K-Cup and filter basket (included) that allow you to use your favorite ground coffee...."
Filter comes in 3 pieces
Everyone here at Single Serve Coffee thinks the reusable filter is a great way to get customers over the hump of buying a Single Serve Coffee maker. How many times have you told someone about your single serve machine and had them say I'm not buying a single serve machine because I can't use my own coffee. Well, now that problem is gone for new buyers. Sure, they'll buy the Keurig B60 with reusable filter knowing they can use their own coffee, but in the end they'll want the convenience of the K-Cups.
A special thanks to Jeff for sending in pictures of the filter. More after the jump.
You'll have to remove the black insert currently there to hold your K-Cups. We tried removing it in the B60 and it came out no problem.
And of course some directions. Long and very detailed. I can't imagine wanting to clean up this filter over and over. We'll keep you posted on the filter and when we receive one, expect a full review benchmarking some ground coffee's against their K-Cup counterparts.
At Amazon.com or get it at Green Mountain Coffee
