Be careful with this one folks.I've tried this exact product 3 different times (whats that saying about doing the exact same thing but expecting different results).

Yes, the product is 'green'.Yes, Ekobrew has a great no questions asked warranty for full replacement or refund if you dont like it.

However, all 3 times I experienced the same issues & they R the same issues many have with this product.It does not have a good seal.Both water will spray out (not fun getting hit with 180degree water) & coffee grinds end up in your mug, all in the machine & etc.Quite a MESS to clean as the grinds go everywhere.

Seems to make a weak cup as well as you simply cannot put enough grinds in it to make it strong so if you like it strong, good luck.The biggest issue tho is the inferior seal that allows water & coffee to create a heckuva mess & possibly burning anybody the water hits.Defeats the purpose of getting a quick, no mess cup-o-java.

I bought them as a Three pack and have been using them ever since. I have had no problem with them at all. I love them as you are not wasting all that plastic stuff with the make your own or the store bough ones and you get to use you own favorite coffee. You must make sure that you tap down the grounds when you fill it and that there are no grounds on the rim. Now I don't know if it makes a difference but I have the Brevelle Keurig maker and it works fine.

@itsme1964: The cup does not fight correctly even in the brwers it is compatible with.It actually moves as you open & close the Keurig & you end up puncturing holes in the ekobrew cup-This is a very common problem many have.The water spraying & coffe grinds going everywhere (lousy seal) are very common issues as well.Ekobrew also has reps who hang out on sites so they can respond to all negative reviews (& there are lots of negative reviews), which I absolutely hate.Some think that means they have great customer service.In my opinion, it means the product is inferior & they try to 'negate the negatives'.Companies that make high quality products dont need to hire people to troll all the sites to try to limit negative reviews.High quality sells itself & doesnt need 'defending'. Big red flag when I see companies paying people just to respond to negative reviews & try to negate those negatives. But hey, they do have a no questions asked warranty so try one & form your own opinion/review.

A solid 4 stars with 1572 amazon review should be good enough for anybody who wants to read up on how common the cited problem is.

If you put this inside of a discarded K-Cup, it helps with some of the problems you are complaining about.

@lotsofgoats: Like I said, many negatives with most having same issues, but you are correct, plenty of great reviews as well, thats why I say folks should try it themselves and form their own opinion/review. Ya got nothing to lose since the do have a great warranty. If you like it, great, if not, Just send it back for a full refund. I tried it 3 times on 3 different model brewers it is compatible with and had same results on all 3 Ekobrew cups in all 3 different brewers so no need for me to try it a 4th time. But again, great warranty so folks should give it a shot and see how it works for them.

I purchased several of these off Amazon back before xmas for filler gifts. I have only heard great things about them. I myself, dont drink coffee.

Can someone explain this product to me? I'm not a coffee drinker but, this appears redundant to me. It seems to negate all of the benefits of Kcups that cause you to pay so much more for the machine and coffee in the first place.

@riothero: The purpose of the machine is super-fast, one-cup servings of coffee. The cups allow for unlimited variety and virtually no cleanup (other than disposing of the plastic cup. The downside is that the coffee is relatively expensive, around $.50-.60 per cup.

Buying your own coffee is cheaper and better for the environment. This insert lets you use your own coffee, with the downside of additional cleanup, having to empty and clean the insert after each brew cycle.

@dpn0121: No wait.U cant hate this.According 2 ekobrew NOBODY hates this product.Everybody loves it & it has never caused issues or had problems for anybody.

LMAO-

Like I said earlier I tried it 3 times on 3 different brewers& it simply sucked-each one on each brewer gave me same crappy results.The same crappy results MANY others have experienced.But, then again, plenty seem to like it & with their no questions asked warranty my advice is 2ignore those who love it, ignore those who hate it&give it a try URself & form UR own opinion/review.U've got nothing 2lose...if U like it, GR8, keep it&use it. If it shoots hot water&coffee grinds everywhere&makes a very weak cup requiring lots of clean up time, return it for a refund.What bugs me the most is w/EVERY product known 2man, some will have differing opinions. Some will luv a product while others will hate same product.Nothing wrong with that.Why cant Manufacterers understand this&instead go nuts if somebody does not like their product?

I did quite a bit of research (including this product). I finally selected and am very happy with the "EZ-Cup" system. It consists of a similar reusable plastic K-Cup into which you place a paper filter (which must be purchased separately)and your own coffee. The only clean up is to remove and discard the paper filter. The cost of the paper filters is low - only adds about 4 or 5 cents per cup. Check it out.

@lesbailey: Yep, there are plenty of better alternatives. I've tried quite a few. I HATED this ekobrew one. Was worst of all I tried. The 'My K-Cup' is meh..just so so....it certainly could be improved as well. With Keurigs getting so popular, the good thing is there are tons of new products coming and ones that have been out are being improved upon so for very little $$'s there are quite a few alternatives that work quite well...far better then the official 'my kcup' and 1000% times better then eko, which I have rated last out of every one i've tried.

@itsme1964: I think you are filling it up too high, but then you get weaker coffee, like you said. I found some replacement plastic lids that allow you to reuse the k-cup, but you have to wash them out first.

vote-for2vote-against

I absolutely LOVE mine. I have never had any issues with it. I think some people may be filling the cup too much. If you want stronger coffee, buy a bolder flavor and make a smaller cup size. If you overfill the k-cup, there is no where for the grounds and water to go but to spew everywhere.
