My-Kap & Reuse your Keurig K-Cups

(Green Mountain Coffee has the one I own on sale right now for $169.95 and free shipping!)

How many of you LOVE your Keurig Machine for that single cup whenever you want it fresh cup of coffee???? I personally LOVE my Keurig Machine. I love all the varieties of coffee to choose from. My only problem with my machine is that I live in a tiny rural town and the only way to get more K-Cups is to order online. There are places ALL OVER the Internet to order them. Amazon and Green Mountain Coffee are two that I go to the most. I also found that I wanted to use my favorite coffees that were not in K-Cup form (For example, I love Big City Coffee and I they are in K-cup form so this allows me to drink it!!) . That is when I met My-Kap!

My-Kap allows you to reuse your Keurig K-Cups! This made me very happy! They sent me My-Kaps to try! Super easy to use! Every time I'm finished with a cup of coffee I now dump my grounds in a bowl to take out to my garden! I also like the fact that I'm reusing a product instead of just tossing it in the trash. It allowed me to use my favorite coffees that were not available, I didn't have to wait for a shipment and it saved money! Check out the video!

This is what My-Kap has to say:

"So you say, why not get a reusable K-Cup. Good idea. But there are a few problems with the system Keurig wants you to use. First the reusable K-Cups cost $14 and up. If you want 10 of them, that is $140 just for the reusable cups. Second, the cup does not produce as good of a cup of coffee as the K-Cup itself. The designs are different and the water flows out the sides of the filter rather than down through the coffee (take a look at it closely). Third, the design is big, bulky, and hard to store. If you already have a turnstile for K-Cups, you can not store these there. With this product you can." <span class=
<span class= "The My-Kap kap allows you to recycle your K-Cups. Fill them with your favorite coffee or tea. And use them many times before they have to be thrown out for good. That lowers your cost for each cup of brew and also give you better brews each time."
Q: How many times can I re-use my K-Cup?
A: As many times as you are comfortable with. I have used mine 10-20 times. The paper filter in these cups is very durable. Wash it out every time and you will get many uses out of a K-Cup.
Q: How many times can I re-use the Kap?
A: Forever. This Kap is made of extremely strong plastic. Keep it clean and re-use it forever.
Q: How much coffee should I put in the cup?
A: Fill the K-Cup up about 3/4 of the way. Make sure you use a fine grind.
Q: Will the My-Kap work with any K-Cup?
A: Yes and no. Not all of the K-Cups are made exactly alike. I have found it works well with the coffee K-Cups and less well with the tea and hot chocolate K-Cups.
Q: What kind of plastic is used?
A: My-Kap is made of polycarbonate plastic. It is one of the most used plastics in the world. It has an extremely high melting point and is 250 times stronger than glass. Your eye glasses are probably made out of this material.
Q: What about BPA?
A: This has been in the news lately. Plastic is everywhere we look. Much of the Keurig coffee brewer and K-Cup are made of various plastics that contain BPA. The fact is, it is almost impossible to not use a BPA containing plastic today. Also keep in mind that most hospital plastics contain BPA. If they thought it was unsafe, they would not use them.
Q: Is the Kap machine washable?
A: Yes. It is very durable and is Dishwasher Safe.

What a GREAT idea!! Glad someone finally came up with this. I love the single cup idea but they really are rather expensive for the average person (me!). I'd pick the red one.
