Ekobrew is meant to be used with a medium to coarse drip grind (A Starbucks #8 or #9 is an example of this type of grind). Grinds that are too fine or too coarse will result in either poor extraction and/or poor flow through. A small amount of sediment can be expected as is the case with all mesh filters and in most countries around the world, seen as evidence of a quality brew. Compatible with Keurig 2.0 K300, K400, K500 Series of Machines and Keurig 1.0 Single Serve Brewing Machines. Not compatible with B/K 30, 130, 150, 145, 155, Mr Coffee BVMC-KG5, or Vue. These wonderful refillable coffee cups will allow you to use your own ground coffee in just about any K-Cup brewer. Each time you brew, you save money and reduce the impact on the environment.

The manual recommends a grind for flat-bottom drip coffee filters. I had to adjust my burr grinder accordingly. The first cup (7.25 oz) on my Platinum edition Keurig was weak, so I went down to 5.75 oz (closer to what I usually make in my Starbucks cone brewer). Slight improvement. I then adjusted my grinder several times to go progressively finer until I reached a good strong cup. I ended up opening a K-Cup and examining the grind to verify what the machine likes best.
Note it's important not to overfill the cup, and to ensure the rim is clear of grinds so as to give a proper seal. In either scenario you might see some clear water spill into the mug from the sides.
Clean up is a bit messy given you shouldn't dump grinds down the drain (you can clog your pipes eventually, and your septic system). I've set up a waste container where I can dump the grinds each time, using a chopstick - rather than a spoon so as not to damage the cup - to quickly pry out the grinds (followed by a rinse in the sink). That's a bit messy, but worth a good cup of coffee :)
Neat thing is it seems to take 1/2 the grinds I was using daily in my cone filter machine, so that's quite a savings.
I'm not sure the elite is really worth the price increase over the plastic as I have both and don't really notice the difference. That being said, it does feel and look much nicer.
The trick with the Ekobrew cups is not to fill them too full with coffee about 1/2 to 2/3 way is enough and you still get a good strength of coffee. If you fill them too full it causes the coffee to spurt out the sides and makes a bit of a mess.

Nice. Makes just enough strong coffee for one 8 oz serving - I like my coffee strong. But you need a good quality ground coffee, like Tchibo blue pack.Published 1 month ago by Tam
Too many coffee grounds in my coffee. Would likely work well with the filters, but I wanted something I could use without filters. I returned it.Published 1 month ago by Citygirl
