Every now and then, you'll come across an invention within an industry that's appropriately dubbed as a “game-changer”. In the single serve coffee world, this invention is known as the K cup® adapter or coffee pod adapter. This amazing device allows you to put fresh grounds into a reusable k cup or coffee pod container to be then used with your single serve coffee maker. There are a number of k cup adapters out there but as is the case with anything, not all of them are created equal. One of the most popular and impressive k cup adapters on the market is the Solo Fill K3. It's effective, reasonably-priced, well-built, and a grand example of how the simplest inventions often make the best ones. In this Solofill K3 review, we go over some of its most notable features and why we consider it to be a must-have for any coffee lover that uses K cups® or coffee pods.
First, let's talk compatibility. The Solofill K3 will work with all first generation Keurig brewers. It's also compatible with the Cuisinart® SS-700, SS-780PC Breville® BKC600XL, BKC700XL
Mr. Coffee® BVMC-KG1, BVMC-KG2, BVMC-KG5. While this list isn't exclusive, it covers some of the more popular machines. One of my favorite features about the Solofill K3 is the fact that it is also compatible with Senseo machines. This benefit can not be overstated. In the single serve coffee world, there are many different types of proprietary machines that will only work with certain types of coffee pods. Senseo coffee is really enjoyable but out of the box they only work in the official Senseo coffee machine and a handful of Hamilton Beach brewers. This Solofill K3 makes it possible to use Senseo pods in my K cup machine which I personally think is a technological wonder to behold 🙂
For Keurig Vue users, consider buying the Solofill V1.
As we mentioned earlier, the Solofill K3 allows you get the freshest coffee experience out of your K cup machine. You can now add your favorite coffee grounds to this reusable k cup adapter, and enjoy a cup of coffee that's undeniably fresher than had it come prepackaged. I'm personally a big fan of K cups® and have come across so amazingly fresh coffee pods in my day. However, there's just no comparing freshness when you're able to grind your own beans and use them in your single serve coffee machine.
A major benefit of reusable k cup adapters is sheer cost-savings. This reason alone is enough for folks to make the switch. Let's face it. K cups® are more expensive than their ground counterpart. You pay for convenience and there's an inherent premium added to the k cup delivery form. With a reusable k cup adapter like the Solofill K3, you can literally take advantage of all the convenience but without the cost.
Solofill K3 Construction
Anyone who has used other k cup adapters will immediately notice that the Solofill K3 is very sturdy and well made. It's hinge is also notably stronger and seems more well connected to the cup than those made by other brands. This is particularly important when you consider these gadgets have to withstand scolding hot water on a consistent basis. You don't want to buy cheap brands when it comes to this stuff. A flimsy k cup adapter could spell disaster for your single serve coffee maker. This k cup adapter is also BPA Free.
The biggest opponents of the k cup and coffee pod delivery form often cite environment concerns. While recyclable K cups® are definitely on the rise, they still only make up a small portion of the k cup market. By using a reusable k cup adapter, you'll be able to enjoy convenient and fresh coffee without having to throw away any packaging waste. That's a huge benefit when you consider how many people use K cups® per day. The Solofill K3, along with other k cup adapters, offers a highly effective way for coffee lovers around the world contribute to a greener and sustainable future.
The Solofill K3 comes in different colors and options. I personally like the Solofill K3 Gold Cup which is plated with 24K gold. I've convinced myself that the coffee made using a gold filter will taste better! At the end of the day, Solofill has really outdone themselves with this product and have proven yet again why they are one of the leaders of the k cup adapter industry.
