So you have invested in a Keurig coffee brewer and finding K cups to be extremely easy to use. You aren’t alone. Many estimates say that we use over 10 billion K cups (yes, Billion with a B) a year.

That said, you are also finding that they can be expensive. Depending on where you buy your cups (and what brand), they can be between $0.30 to $0.60 per cup. Sure, that is cheaper than going to Starbucks, but it still adds up. So can you reuse those K cups for more than one cup of coffee?

The quick answer is that K Cups can be used twice but are only meant to only be used once. You are supposed to make one cup of coffee and then throw it away. That said, if you decide to make a second cup of coffee, expect it to work but also expect the second cup to be extremely watered down.

Many people have tried to make that second cup of coffee, and the results are almost always the same. For some coffee brewers, you can select the size of your cup. If you really want to try and stretch two cups, make small cups. This is usually around 6 ounces. You can definitely make a single 10 ounce cup of coffee, so your best bet is to try two 6 ounce cups instead.

Best Way to Use K Cups Twice

If you give it a shot and it doesn’t quite produce the quality you wanted, there is a better option. You can buy a reusable K cup.

Reusable K cups are easy to use and allow you to use any coffee of your choosing. The process is pretty simple:

  1. Fill reusable K Cup with two to three teaspoons of coffee grounds
  2. Close the lid and insert into your Keurig just like a normal K cup pod
  3. Hit brew and you get your fresh cup of coffee, many times with higher quality grounds than before

So how much money can you expect by using reusable K Cups? Industry reports guess that you can save upwards of $0.25 – $0.40 per cup of coffee by using reusable cups.

There is an upfront cost to using these, but your cost goes down over time the more you brew. Give it a shot. It is a low upfront cost to give it a try and see if you like it!
