Posted Sun Mar 3, 2013, 1:13pm Subject: Reusable Filters for Keurig-EkoBrew Help
I have been trying to find a good re-usable filter for my Keurig. It seems many people like the ekobrew. So I found them at a local Walmart, and bought two of them. I am having some troubles I must admit, that I am def disappointed, thus far its been the worst coffee I have had from a re-usable filter. I was excited that it holds 14g of coffee.
Here are my problems.
-Initially the coffee comes in 3-5 different directions, and if not using a wide mouth cup it goes everywhere, I have tried this about 10 times, all the same.
-The coffee is weak. It comes out dark as can be for the first 5-10 seconds, then goes to water. I tried a drip grind, a multi-purpose grind, and a percolator grind. The percolator grind that was more course was horrible, the coffee was just tinted water. Really looking for help here on the grind to use. I only have a chop grinder, and must use a burr grinder at the store.
-The coffee takes much longer to brew than any other filter or K-cup I have used.
