My mornings just wouldn’t be the same without a good cup of coffee. I think if I didn’t fix it for myself, within a few minutes there would probably be a line at the coffee maker with my husband and son making one for me.


About three years ago, my friend Nola introduced me to her Keurig coffee maker. It had to have been one of the best cups of coffee I had ever tasted in my life! We were on a camping trip for the Daytona 500, which is thankfully situated right across the road from a mall.

You know what happened, don’t you?

I don’t believe my coffee cup had even cooled off before we were in the Macy’s for me to have one of those magic machines for myself.

Since then, I’ve probably used 2,310 K-Cups of various brands, types, roasts, and flavors. I finally realized I just needed a standing order for automatic delivery of those cute little cups of greatness I was using so many.

That’s about the time my sister told me about a new little diddy that she was using with her Keurig.


Just look at that cute thing!!!

It’s called an ekobrew Cup and allows me to use whatever coffee I want in my Keurig.

There are two major things I love about it –

  • it just pops right into the K-Cup slot without having to remove any pieces of my Keurig
  • it is saving me so much money over what I was spending!

Here’s how it works.


Spoon your desired number of teaspoons into the container.



Snap the lid closed and place it into your Keurig just like you would a K-Cup.




Since I calculated that I’m saving about 58 cents a cup, I think I deserve to go shopping.

Don’t you?

The fall shoes sure are cute!

  1. You are awesome. This is EXACTLY what I needed!!! I get the K-cup hot cocoa ones and they are SOOOOO expensive… this thing is just what I need!

  2. We have a Keurig too ( I don’t drink coffee but my husband does every day) and it came with a little thing like this for normal coffee. He loves it!! His favorite K-Cups are Donut House, but they get pricey, so it’s nice to have a cheaper alternative.

    1. That’s awesome, Kristan. I wish mine had come with one, I’d practically be rich now! And Donut House is my very favorite K-Cup, too!!!

  3. Do you find you have to grind your beans a lot more finely using that? Our coffee came out very blah when we used ours, and I was thinking maybe our grind was too big.

    1. I’ve just been grinding them normally and also have tried using the already ground coffee. Both came out great for me. The ekoBrew really does have an ingenius little filter setup, I think. Is that the one you are using?

    2. No, it’s not the ekoBrew. We got our Keurig from someone on Freecycle and it’s the one she gave us with the machine. Just a generic one, I think.

  4. Wow! That’s so funny you have a friend named Nola – that’s my mother’s name and I have never heard of another one until now! Oh yeah, and I love my refillable K-cup filter too! 🙂

  5. Wow, didn’t know the Ekobrew cup refillable K-cup thing-y exists until now! Thanks for introducing it to me. Now, I want my Keurig machine back! I gave it up cos it was getting too expensive to buy those individual coffee cups.
