Thank you to Acorn Influence and ekobrew for sponsoring this post & sending the reusable cups. The honest opinions are my own.
I love coffee. Can you believe I didn’t drink it at all until about 3 years ago? What was I thinking?! Now I look forward to a couple of cups every day. I get up in the morning, happy to see my Keurig smiling at me from the corner of my kitchen, waiting patiently for me to brew that first cup.
While I love the convenience of my Keurig, it’s always nagged at the back of my mind how expensive K-Cups can be and have you heard that they are not biodegradable? These negatives have really started to dampen my enjoyment of my morning (and afternoon…and early evening…) cup of coffee.
That’s why I was excited when I learned about ekobrew.
ekobrew offers a line of innovative, environmentally friendly reusable K-Cups that will be available at Walmart in September. I was thrilled to get a sneak peek and I can’t say enough about how great ekobrew is and how perfect it is for coffee lovers everywhere.
Since the ekobrew reusable cups have arrived I’ve been using them and like how simple they are, how they are environmentally friendly, and how they can save you money too. There are three items in the line:
I make my ekobrew cup selection, fill it with my favorite coffee (as you can see above), set it into my Keurig and push Brew.
Here’s a look at the Stainless Steel:

And the Paper Filter inside the Plastic:
The coffee is ready in seconds and I add my sugar and cream and then rinse out the ekobew cups. Once a week I place them in the dishwasher.
Then off I go to enjoy my coffee morning, noon, or night.
It makes me feel good to know that in just a few steps my coffee is now more environmentally friendly and it’s saving us money too!
Did you know that in a household where two people make a daily cup of gourmet coffee, it’s possible for them to consume 700 K-Cup pods a year?
When you use the ekobrew reusable filters, you can get 55 fills from a one pound bag of coffee. In a conservative comparison, a $10 pound of coffee yields servings costing 20 cents each compared to 70 cents for each K-Cup.
That’s a savings of 50 cents over 700 servings which equals $350 a year!
Some of my favorite features of ekobrew include:
- Choose your favorite coffee – select fair trade and responsibly purchased and grown coffee to be even more socially conscious and you can always go with long standing classics as well
- Fresh coffee every time – using fresh coffee makes for an outstanding cup every time versus branded pre-packaged pods that could be sitting in warehouses for months on end
- Environmentally friendly – every time you use an ekobrew filter that is one less K-Cup pod that will end up in a landfill
All of the ekobrew filters are Keurig 1.0 and 2.0 compatible. They’re also compatible with Mr. Coffee, Cuisinart, and Breville machines.
I’ve been very impressed with the ekobrew reusable cups and recommend them to coffee drinkers and Keurig users everywhere. They will be available at Walmart in September and not only will they make you feel good about enjoying your fresh cup of joe in the morning but they make a great gift too!
