Review: Podster - Make Your Own K Cups with Coffee Pods
The device is a rivet sleeve, rubber band, and
rivet to puncture the coffee pod.
It's been a long time in coming, but we finally got to spend the last week with a home made device called the "Podster". The Single Serve Coffee Forums have been abuzz with activity over the past year with tales of the Podster, and how it allows you to use coffee pods in your Keurig Elite B40 Brewer, Keurig B50, Keurig Special Edition Ultra Elite B60, Keurig B70 Brewer, Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer, and other Keurig K Cup brewers that use the My K- Cup reusable filter.
The Podster is design is very simple, and unlike the Perfect Pod Holster, the Podster requires the the My K- Cup reusable filter. There's also a fair amount of rigging to get everything set in place, but if you do the Podster works great.
Here's how it works:
Shape that coffee pod for the best results and puncturing.
Then place into the My K- Cup reusable
You then put the rivet catcher into place, and then puncture with the end.
We didn't get a shot of puncturing but it fits perfectly in to the rivet hole.
The results is a cup of coffee made in a
Keurig brewer from coffee pods. Neat.
We don't know if Sweaner in the Single Serve Coffee forums is still selling the Podster, but if he is you may want to check it out for the fun of having a home made device to make your morning cup of single serve coffee. Another commercial alternative is of course the Perfect Pod Holster. It works great as well, and doesn't require the use of the My K- Cup reusable filter, and will work in any Keurig brewer model.
