FILLING
  • Remove the lid by turning it counter-clockwise to the UNLOCK position
  • Fill the Filter Basket to your desired fill line (cup or travel mug) and place in the Filter Holder
*CAUTION: Never compress grounds or fill above the top fill line as this may hinder brewer performance. If grinding your own beans, start with a coarser grind similar to a French press. Avoid a fine espresso grind as it may clog the screen.
*NOTE: The My K-Cup® Universal Reusable Filter is designed for ground coffee only. The use of tea leaves, hot cocoa, or other powdered beverages is not recommended.
