What is a K-Cup?

So, what in the world is a K-Cup anyways? A cup in a “K” shape? In actuality, it is a little pod of wonderful, deliciousness, and at the same time, an incredibly convenient way to brew a hot (or cold) beverage of your choice. These little plastic pods have revolutionized the way the world drinks coffee, tea, lemonade, latte, cappuccino, hot chocolate, or any other beverage your mind can think up – there are over 400 varieties.  Here at Keurig K-Cups Coffee we would like to delve a little deeper into the history of these wonderful inventions and at the same time, be a resource for all of your needs related to K-Cups, whether it be getting a great deal on your favorite flavor of coffee or just a little insight into how to clean or maintain your Keurig.


What is a K-Cup ?A look inside the K-Cup
  • The top portion of the pod is covered with foil and vacuumed sealed for freshness
  • The filter containing the coffee or tea is next
  • The outer shell consists of plastic, to keep the coffee fresh by protecting it from air and light

The Keurig machine works by puncturing holes in the top, foil, layer and the bottom, plastic, layer. This then allows the system to pump hot water over the coffee or tea, creating a wonderful beverage of your choice.
