I recently received the Keurig. I have tried many of the k cups but due to the waste and cost decided to try the reusable cups. I cant seem to get my coffee strong enough. I have tried grinding my own to fine, tried several different kinds of coffee, etc. but no success. I don't normally make coffee extra strong so I was surprised by the problem. I would welcome any suggestions or tips.

There is a wonderful dark coffee (bold) called "Jet Fuel". I get it at ECS, which has both one-line purchases and also a few oultets in Burlington, Ancaster and Kitchener, Ontario.

I filled one and used set the machine on the 6 oz setting and then filled the second one and set the machine on the 8 oz setting to make a 14 oz cup. But recently I bought this filter at Bed Bath and Beyond using a 20% off coupon. I am surprised at how much I love it! Now I only have to fill it once and set my Keurig on the maximum oz setting (12 oz) and it makes a good, strong cup of coffee.
Try this filter, you will have a different experience. I feel so much better about using this filter instead of the Mycups because I'm not using so much coffee. There is something about the coffee going right through the filter and not having to be forced against the solid plastic of the grey holder that makes it more concentrated.

I am using the ekobrew and also have some called cafe cup. I will try the solo fill cup. I used to use Folgers Classic Roast so it wasn't strong but in the Keurig it comes out so weak I can see the bottom of the cup. I am also using the medium size fill button. When I started grinding my own beans it was a bit stronger but still kinda weak. I have tried 8 o'clock columbian beans and starbucks medium house blend beans.
