Refillable Stainless Steel K-Cups

The Ekobrew Elite Cup is Environmentally Consious

— January 21, 2014 — Eco
Coffee brewers such as Keurig or Tassimo machines may have brought gourmet beverages a step closer into the home, but their single-serve status rubs many people the wrong way; that can all change with the Ekobrew Elite Cup. The Ekobrew Elite Cup is a stainless steel version of the plastic container, which allows it to be used over and over again.

Not only will people be able to save money by visiting their kitchen more often that their local Starbucks, the Ekobrew Elite Cup ensures that they are more environmentally conscious as they do so as well. There is also no need to remove the Keurig filter holster. A person simply fillss the Ekobrew Elite Cup, places it in their machine and it brews normally. It is 100 percent BPA/lead free.
