Keurig My K-Cup filters work with all Keurig machines. If you have a machine at home or in the office, all you have to do is have chopped beans to throw in the plastic filter. The BPA-free device has two lines to fill your designs: one for a cup at home and another for a travel mug. The lid closes so that the grinding does not spread in your machine.
