Keurig Coffee Mix
This is a simple recipe for an inexpensive, robust coffee mix for use with refillable K-Cups in Keurig Coffee machines. It makes about 450 cups for around 15 dollars; about 30 cents per K-Cup of coffee. (2012 prices, based on full regular average US price of coffee.) You can use another brand of espresso if you wish.
- 1 can Medaglia d’Oro Espresso Coffee
- 1/2 can Coffee (regular drip coffee)
Empty a can of Medaglia d’Oro coffee into a large bowl.
Then, fill that now-emptied Medaglia d’Oro coffee can with your favourite drip coffee. Pack lightly.
Add that to the bowl and using your hands, mix and blend well.
Store in a large (925g / 32 oz) empty coffee can.
Per K-Cup, use 1 generously heaped tablespoon (about 5 1/2 teaspoons / 2 scant tablespoons.)
Do not press down too tightly on the coffee in the K-Cup filter -- the secret is to allow the hot water room to swirl around in the coffee as it passes through the filter. Do not fill the K-Cup completely full; the coffee needs room to swell as the hot water hits it.
