I have one! i love it – i had 2 different versions but this one (ekobrew) is by far the best – less fuss and easy to clean. you just fill it up with coffee and stick it in just like the k cups. I personally like regular ground coffee to the k cups so this works great for me.

i dont think so..i just rinse in the sink or rinse and throw it in the dishwasher – def not as convenient as the k cups since you just throw those away but my husband an i use our filter at least once a day each if not more- i havent bought k cups in ages.

@totheislnds: Not to hijack, but have you had any problems with this brand leaking? Also, I like the design of it where the basket isn’t separate and its all one piece.

Darling Husband and I have the Keurig brand re-useable filter and can’t brew a cup without water leaking everywhere. 🙁  With that said, unless someone can fill me in on something I’m doing wrong, I would avoid it.

 We use the Solo fill cup. It is perhaps the best thing we could have ever done. We get the same awesome taste with a fraction of the price in the coffees we like rather than just what the K cups offer. And this one is one of the best rated and cheapest. Not a single leak problem or anything else. It is super easy to clean too. We rinse out the grounds into the sink, and toss it back in. We wash ours with soap about once a week so it doesn’t get gross ut for the most part, a good rinse is all it needs. I swear by it. Now… if only I could figure out how to do tea in it….

I’ve had problems with the Keurig brand one….I use it and the grinds get all over and block my Keurig.  I have to run vinegar through it to clean it up the grinds.  HTH.

@MrsZZZToBee: Yes this exactly!!! Its almost like its missing a gasket to keep a tight seal or something.

I love my k-cup refillable filter. You just have to be careful you don’t fill it all the way. It’s not a big deal to clean

We have one but have only used it a handful of times- originally bought it for a former roommate who wanted her coffee rather than kcup brands. I am a coffee making idiot so I don’t know how to decide what coffee to buy, what to do to grind the coffee, etc. I used the my k cup for a ground coffee sample bag though and it worked really well, just took a little extra work since you have to dump the grinds and rinse it rather than throwing it away.
