My-Kap Lid - Use Any Coffee in Your K-Cup Brewer

my-kap.jpg

my-kap-on-cup.jpgWe were recently introduced to the My-Kap reusable lid for use with used K-Cups in your Keurig machine. The My-Kap allows you to re-use the Cup several times. Each time, you can fill it with your choice of coffee. Re-using your K-Cups saves up to 20 cents per cup, reduces waste, and allows you to enjoy an infinite selection of coffee varieties.

The My-Kap is easy to use, dishwasher-safe, and durable. It does not require altering the Keurig machine at all. Peel the foil off the top of your used K-Cup, rinse it, put in a spoonful of your desired coffee, and press the My-Kap in place; then insert into the machine as you would a regular K-Cup.

Each My-Kap comes with detailed, illustrated instructions on using, storing and cleaning it. Also included is a tool that helps get the My-Kap back off of the K-Cup after using it.

After lots of different coffees, we find a somewhat fine grind along with a bolder coffee works best. We also preferred the 6 oz size using our Keurig Platinum brewer. The My-Kap is compatible with any Keurig brewer, however the My-Kap was not designed or manufactured by Keurig. It is not endorsed by Keurig for use in either the K-Cup or Keurig Brewer. Also please note that it is not for use with ESE PODS.

I like the idea of reusing the K-cups, maybe not the my-kap product, but the sealable lids. However I really want to hear an answer to how long before it become unsanitary to reuse?

My biggest issue with the My K-cup product is that I get a fine dust in my coffee which I don't like. Maybe if I use a coarser grind that will not happen. However now Ill have to spend extra on a fancy grinder that does a coarse grind. What a headache this is turning into.

Although I have never used the "My K-Cup"...seems at $15 each it would be a huge expenditure, and you still need to clean it out each time. I did buy 10 "My_Kaps" for $34...it lets me make 10 Kaps every couple of days. Incredibly easy..."difficult to insert the cap"...hmmm...perhaps this person is "handiKapped"... hehehe

I just sent my My-Kap order back for refund. My experience was that it was a difficult to insert the Kap (resulting in morning coffee spills -- not fun), it leaked around the edges of the Kap/Kup AND at the center hole where water is injected. Honestly, this type of thing is right up my alley -- I love saving money, recycling, etc., but this just doesn't work...at least not well. I've happily gone back to using the My K-Cup when I want to use my own coffee, which works perfectly for me -- no leaks, no spills, easier to clean, more sanitary, and cheaper.

I actually really like using the Kap.

I believe its the original reuse device for the Keurig and the creator has proven to be a very nice man.

As for reusing K-cups I do, and I like to from time to time. Having a Kap on hand has been helpful.

I use the 'My K-cup' as well and it has held up fine. I don't see how the plastic holder would break. The permanent filters would wear out after time, but you can get a 2 pack of those for less than $15 shipped. But my original is holding up well.

I've had "My K-cup" for 2 years and it hasn't broken yet. Don't see the need for My-Kap.

I recently contacted the creator of the My-Kap and and was able to get a couple of these to sample.

I don't have a "My K-Cup". I had read mixed reviews of the "My K-Cup" and heard that they broke fairly easily, so I thought it was pretty expensive for how often I'd probably use it/have to replace it.

I think the My-Kap is a great idea for an occasional cup of coffee using my own coffee grounds. Even if you only use an existing k-cup one additional time with the My-Kap, its still "free", as I've already paid for the k-cup, giving me an unending supply of filters.

Correction to link in my last comment... looks like Keurig doesn't allow direct linking? Just click on the "At Home" section on their homepage, then click "Accessories". The My K-Cup is listed half-way down the Accessories page.

I can't see the point of re-using used K-Cups (although I'm sure one exists) when Keurig already has a device for this purpose. I have the "My K-Cup" device and it works fine.

As with any similar device, you have to experiment until you find the right grind/amount that'll work best, but once you do, you're good to go.

Have a look at the My K-Cup and see for yourself (scroll down on that site)

Now all we need is for someone to make a gold foil filter insert for a K-Cup.


Posted by: JayM at March 12, 2009 10:51 AM

My question is: how many times would you want to re-use a Cup before it becomes unsanitary? That filter stays put (probably stays wet) and grows all kinds of nasty bugs... PASS.
