K-cup® packs and the Joe Pod®
There are many types of K-cup® packs, and the vast majority work really well with the joe pod®. But there are a few that don't. The rule of thumb is that if a K-cup® pack has less than 11g of coffee, it will brew in about three and a half minutes. For 11 to 12.5g of coffee, it's about four and a half minutes. Any K-cup® pack over 12.5g of coffee will not brew in the joe pod® (those are the really dark brews).
Also, some generic, non-Keurig® approved K-cup® packs don't work well with the joe pod® due to how they're made, so we recommend staying with Keurig® approved K-cup® packs if you're a novice joe pod® user.
We're compiling a list of K-cup® packs that work well with the joe pod®, but to help us do that, we'd love to hear feedback from you. What K-cup® packs work, which don't and which are your favorite. Let us know and we'll share that information with the joe pod® community.
