How does a K-cup work?
K-cups work on a simple principle; there is a paper filter inside each cup which during the production process is filled with coffee, tea or other drink. It is made airtight using a foil lid. To make a hot drink, the K-cup is placed on a small platform under the brew head and when the start button is pressed, small holes are puncture in the top and bottom of the K-cup. The brewer pushes the hot water through the K-cup and into the mug with the K-cup then being disposable.
There are over 200 different varieties currently in the range and new ones are added all the time. So once you find one that perfectly suits your tastes, you can buy in 24 packs to get the K-cups best price. Either that or there are different multi-packs so you can keep trying as many different types as you want.
