Keurig Reuseable fiter's

Some of you get coffee ground in your coffee.

If you are using the MY K-CUP Reusable Coffee Filter, please make sure that you are using a course-drip. You should only fill the mesh basket to the bottom of the brown band, which is approximately 2.5 tbs.

Husband brewed coffee using reusable filter without the lid. Grounds everywhere. Is it possible for the grounds to have made it to the 'guts' of the unit? Should I disassemble to clean?


Just clean as per the directions in the manual. Get a reusable cup with a rubber seal around the lid and do not fill to the top, leave room for the top to close and seal.

We have a 12 cup Mr. Coffee about a year old. We put 4 scoops of coffee in and the appropriate amount of water. Every day, the filter overflows and grains of coffee get into the pot. How do we keep this from happening?


Because I own a espresso company,I believe I can help you. There is several things that can cause a coffee machine to over flow. 1, putting to much coffee in, where water can not drain through filter. 2. The grind of the coffee, if it is ground to fine, like ground for espresso, will not allow coffee to flow through filter , drip machine that are not under high pressure like espresso machines have to have ground more course. 3, wrong type of filters, not fine enough for water to flow, or made for high pump pressure machine such as espresso machine . 4, putting to much water in, is not an issue on a mr coffee, because even if you fill it to full cup line, it would have nothing to do with filter over flowing, besides the coffee grounds always absorb some of the water anyway. In conclusion, my positive professional diagnose is Grounds of coffee to course, and 4 scoops seem a bit to much for a filter of a mr coffee machine that holds only 12 cups. To test this is make a pot same way and use only two rounded scoops and see what happens, if does not over flow that solves that. But your saying I want it stronger, believe me I know. I too like my coffee strong and a flavorful . I have that solved too. Go to a good walk in espresso shop, like a star bucks, tell them you want some good strong blend and have it ( Ground for Drip) and then still only put two rounded scoops, it takes less do to the blend and kind of coffee. Please let me know if my advice worked, thanks mike. oh notice my screen name of mc1 bean, now you know, I know what I am talking about :)

unit will not brew when pod is inserted; works w/o pod however.


This may be one of two issues:
1. The pump is malfunctioning which can cause the internal reservior to not completely fill which causes issues during brewing. My unit dribbled random amounts of water instead of brewing for about a week before the pump died completely.
2. The puncture seal isn't in the right position. Open the Keurig fully so you can see the sharp puncture pin. Very Carefully push the black rubber gasket around it all the way up. Then pull it back down about 1/16". Brew a cup, if the problem continues, try sliding the gasket further down by increments of 1/32".
