How to upcycle and get more life out of k-cups

Share this post

I’m a big coffee drinker, not only for the morning pick me up, but the flavor and peacefulness of drinking a warm cup in my PJ’s each morning.  I prefer to make good coffee at home rather than pay big bucks for something sweet at a coffee shop.  Last year we got a Keurig 2.0 and were really excited about it.  We found a way to use our own grounds and make ok coffee, but to get a really good cup you have to buy the overpriced pods.  Even worse, they are not recyclable.  So we are back to brewing a pot of delicious coffee each morning and we save our k-cups for an afternoon treat or a morning when we’re in a rush.

Even with this routine we still have plenty of k-cups that I just can’t bring myself to throw away.  I’ve found some great ways to upcycle and get more life our of k-cups.  Take a look at these fabulous crafts using k-cups.

Clever ways to reuse and upcycle or recycle K-cups coffee pods.
