Rated 5 out of 5 by Aray the coffee-holic Works, and is eco-friendly! A must have!
So the rumor is true... when you first use the My K-cup, it leaks. And you might possibly get grounds in your cup. But a simple adjustment of the rubber gasket, and a wipe down of your counter, and the issue is solved. Haven't had an issue since. In my opinion, a lot of the reviews were written immediately after that first messy cup, without really considering how small the issue really is. As far as flavor... you decide the type of coffee and the strength of your cup. It might take some time to get it just right, but so worth it. I do recommend getting a couple extra baskets if there are multiple coffee-holics in the house. All in all... Great invention! Will prevent so much waste in our landfills, while saving money! If 1 person drinks 1 cup per day for a year = 365 non-biodegradable plastic cups thrown away! And that's if you drink only 1 cup(which most people don't)! Multiply that by every coffee drinker that uses a Keurig... and now you can see how eco-friendly the My K-cup is!

This has been a great filter. I use it repeatedly and daily. Am looking for a second one so I don't always have to immediately clean out the filter if I want a second cup.

Rated 1 out of 5 by AE Rush Disappointed
This product does a poor job of filtering the coffee. My cups are filled with grounds. This does not happen when I use disposable K-cups. Further, the cups are weak and watery. I was disappointed with my purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lux this product is No Good
I held off buying a Keurig because I didn't want to use the k-Cups but I loved the idea of Quick single serving coffee, no more wasted 1/2 pots of coffee etc.. Well when I saw this item was available I bought it THAN I bought the Coffee Machine. I also bought several machines and these My K-Cups as presents for friends and family last Christmas. Well thats the last time I buy gifts before I try them out 1st. What a Horrible disappointment this product it and none of the "Fixes" people are coming up with work very well either. The Machines where Sold Out all over the country ths last Xmas so this Co should do something about this terrible product. No I am Not buying your k-Cups, I take my coffee very serious and buy high quality beans and have several different types of makers. Please fix this item so i can use this machine agin as it just sits and collects dust now. Luckily a few friends where able to Return my present after discovering how bad this filter system works. I didnt unfortunately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WV Triker Now I'm Satisfied!
I, too, was at first very disappointed with the My K-Cup, with splashing and spraying of water all over the place (my wife thought I had to be "doing it wrong" and I thought it was broken). After reading the "gasket tip" I immediately went to the kitchen and tried it out: Bingo! Works as it should now. Just ease that flat, round gasket down about 2/3 way on the top needle and you get a nice, proper seal and no more mess. Now I'm happy with it. The only con is in my opinion it should come with two screen baskets. I like it (now) because I can create my own custom blends and use different coffees as I feel like it. It's a great product. One hint: The instructions say to use a French press grind. Open a used k-cup and you'll see it is really an espresso grind; that makes a big difference. And get a bur grinder, not one of those cheap-o blade type. With a good grinder you can even re-grind ground coffee to the right fineness and use it properly with much better flavor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JES42 Mine doesn't leak and isn't messy!!
I've been reading how bad the MY K-CUP is. Yes, it can leak and it can get your counter soaked. HOWEVER there is a very simple fix for it. If you've taken the time to keep the various parts of your Keurig machine nice and clean, then you've probably removed the little rubber washer on the pointed tube that pierces the K-CUP. Chances are that once you've washed it off, you just slid it back up the tube until it seated itself at the top. Well, if you did just that, THAT is your problem. Open the lid, slide the rubber washer DOWN the tube until the beveled part is sitting right at the top of the opening on the tube or even a bit closer to the pointy end. Do not push it all the way up, closing the lid the next time you brew will set the washer at the proper position on the tube. If you look at the top of the MY K-CUP you will see a round opening about 3/4s of an inch wide. The rubber washer is meant to sit inside that and form a seal to prevent water from escaping. The best part?? It's free and dead simple!!
