The Keurig is one of America’s new favorite ways to brew single-serve coffee. It’s fast and easy, but all those disposable K-cups can be harmful to the environment and your wallet. How can you avoid these problems? By using a refillable filter like the Solofill, you can save money and save the environment.
Using a Keurig is really easy, and only takes about 5 minutes.
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 tbsp coffee and 6 oz water
2 tbsp coffee and 8 oz water
8 grams coffee and 178 grams water
16 grams coffee and 236 grams water
For a 6 oz cup, scoop 1 tablespoon grounds into the filter. For an 8 oz cup, use 2 tablespoons.
First, you’ll want your coffee ground to a medium grind – a #6 on an industrial grinder. This is important, because a course grind will produce a weak coffee, but a fine grind will clog the machine.
Use a spoon to scoop the grounds into the filter, and run your finger around the rim to clear any grounds. By removing the excess grounds, you are ensuring the lid seals properly and therefore preventing it from making a big mess – you don’t want to learn this the hard way!
Once you’re ready, close the top of the lid and place your favorite coffee mug underneath the spout. Press the “Brew” button and in just a minute you can enjoy your fresh Buzzbox Coffee!
You might be tempted to try to brew twice using the same grounds, but don’t do it! The second round will taste like coffee-tinged water. Simply let the used grounds cool a bit, dump them out, give the filter a quick rinse, and you’re ready to brew another cup.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the simplicity of the Keurig matched with the taste of your favorite Buzzbox Coffee.
