Single Serve Brewers Expensive And Wasteful? Not So With The Ekobrew, A Reusable Stainless Steel K-Cup For Keurig Brewers

Screen Shot 2014-01-19 at 1.31.33 PM

We’re big fans of single-serve coffee brewers, like the Keurig or Tassimo machines. But as much as we love them, we’re conscious of the fact that they create enormous amounts of waste and each coffee ends up costing a lot more than if you were to make them the traditional way.

No more wasted plastic cups, and no more paying triple the regular amount for a cup of Joe. Granted you’re sort of taking away some of the convenience inherent in the machines by doing this, but hey, there’s a price to pay for everything. It’s $17.

A few weeks ago, I made my way to Best Buy to buy two small appliances, with the hope of making my mornings better. Yes, the retailer sells more than laptops and PCs, and while browsing their aisles, I settled on a Keurig Elite SingleServe Brewer (B48), and a Philips Sonicare – DiamondClean Rechargeable Toothbrush. I think you see where I’m going with this. Who wants to brew a fresh pot of coffee every morning, or fuss around with instant powder, when there’s an alternative at the ready? And what self-respecting geek wouldn’t look forward to cleaning his teeth with a brush that vibrates at 31,500 “rpm” and charges through electromagnetic induction? Yeah, that was my thinking and here’s how these two machines performed.
