how to outsmart your kuerig 2.0

In December, I purchased my third Keurig in the last seven years. Brian upgraded me to the newest model (Keurig 2.0) and I was super excited. My delivery came with eight k-cups. When I went through those, I decided to use my refillable k-cup.

I filled it up and then coffee! It wouldn't let me use a refillable k-cup. I was shocked!
Oops! This pack wasn't designed for this brewer. Please try one of hundreds of packs with the Keurig logo.
I was chatting with a friend about my new dilemma and she had an idea. The Keurig 2.0 is digital. It reads the QR code on the top of a k-cup. My machine must be rejecting my refillable k-cup because there isn't a QR code. She thought I could try cutting off the foil top of a k-cup and placing it on top of my refillable one.

I was doubtful, but I was willing to give it a try. Holy worked!!
I placed it in my machine, making sure the foil piece didn't fall off.

I closed the lid and it actually start brewing.

Sometimes, you just have to outsmart technology. Tell me what you think?

  1. I think that is glorious! Those k cups cam work out to cost like $8 a lb! Ridiculous! This year I went to a French Press! Although at work we use the Keurig.
