Design & Functionality The Ekobrew unit works on the same principles as the best espresso coffee machines. Optimum extraction of the best single serve drip coffee is a product of the perfect grind combined with the perfect amount of coffee to achieve the ideal coffee extraction. 1. Open Ekobrew lid 2. Fill with your favorite ground coffee and close the lid 3. Insert into Keurig holster and brew With its low tamp dispersion cone the Ekobrew filter evenly soaks the coffee grounds for optimal extraction.
Sustainability Projections for 2011 suggested that more than 5 billion K-Cups will be sold, used and then disposed of by consumers. These non-biodegradable K-Cups will, for the most part, end up in our landfills and never decompose.
About ekobrew Eko Brands, LLC, a Seattle based company, began their mission to provide an ecologically responsible and less expensive solution when they introduced the Ekobrew in early 2011.
Single serve coffee is the fastest growing segment in the North American coffee market today. The Keurig single cup brewing system utilizes small disposable plastic and foil cups called "K-Cups" that hold ground coffee for brewing each cup.
Now there is an alternative that is greener, less expensive and provides far more choices - the Ekobrew Reusable Filter for Keurig single cup coffee maker.
Ekobrew brings you a new of single serve coffee – convenience with a conscience
Care Instructions Dishwasher safe
Find your unique fill line Just because there is a maximum fill line on the Ekobrew does not mean that you should necessarily fill it to that line. That line is meant to accommodate the maximum amount, such as making a robust cup of coffee or a larger quantity cup of coffee.
A Fine Grind A finer coffee grind will allow water to pass through at a slower rate. This gives you the option for a longer extraction or a bolder taste. However, if the grind is too fine, this will result in the bogging down of the flow rate and, in some cases, will cause a back flow in your machine causing it to shut down.
A Coarse Grind A courser grind will allow the water to pass through the coffee faster but may not exploit the coffee grounds to the fullest extent. This gives you the option for a quicker or milder cup of coffee.

I guess I didn't read all of the information. I thought that it would fit a Keurig - I didn't realize that there were different models and sizes of Keurigs. The reusable filter does not fit the one I'm using so unfortunately so I cannot use it and cannot rate it.
Finally, the speed of a single cup and my favorite coffee! This is a simple, easy to use product! I love that I am not spending a dollar for a cup of coffee, constantly running out and that i am helping the environment!
We have used a few other Keurig reusable cups before, and were very displeased. When I saw the ad for the Ekobrew filter, and saw a red o-ring (high temp resistant), I thought we might have a winner. And once we received it, I ran some of my favorite brew (Dunkin' Dark) thru it to test it out. It worked great, and made a perfect cup of coffee. The only problem we encountered was filling it just a little too much. But after two more cups, we now know the perfect amount to use (just barely below the "fill line"), and have been using it everyday since. Will be purchasing more for the family, and as gifts for a few friends that have Keuring machines, too. Highly recommended. Price is fair, and shipping was on time. Thanks, guys!
This work quite well. Make sure you use coffee of an appropriate grind (electric drip grind works well) - if too fine, it will clog up and overflow, very messily. The common blade-type grinder a lot of people use at home does NOT do a good job for this purpose, as it's very hard to get a consistent grind of the right size with those - you're better off buying your coffee ground, unless you have a burr grinder at home.
Frankly, I wish there were no need for this product - the fact that those Keurig-type coffee makers exist at all is an outrage against the earth - along with all the other senseless waste that seems to keep getting worse and worse. But given that we need to cope with that situation until people wake up, thank God it's at least *possible* to get a re-usable container for them.
