can you switch back and forth from tea to coffee in the my K cup????
this is what has been holding me back from ordering this. my coffee machine is now taking about 20 minutes to brew, and i ran so much vinegar through it yesterday and i almost threw up on the porch......yuck!
thanks in advance!
As you know, the My K-Cup is empty.
Into the My K-Cup you put either your own loose coffee grounds. Or nothing at all.
The water is first heated inside the Keurig. Then it is sent downwards out of the Keurig and into the waiting empty drinking cup on the counter.
On its way from inside the Keurig to the waiting empty drinking cup on the counter is where you put either the K-Cup that is already provided filled by Keurig -- OR instead the My K-Cup which you've either filled with your own ground coffee or nothing at all.
Although some people may choose to fill THEIR "My K-Cup" with loose tea instead of loose coffee grounds, it doesn't matter.
EXCEPT the My K-Cup is ostensibly "supposed to" get all "gummied up" if you use loose tea in it instead of loose coffee grounds.
So, the answer to your question ultimate is that it just doesn't matter. In other words, there's no "switching" on the Keurig machine, itself -- no actual switch or level to indicate to the Keurig machine that you want to use it for coffee.. or for using tea.
Bottom line -- it does not matter at all for whether you're using it to make tea OR you're using it to make coffee.
The difference for the Sunday TSV Keurig is that it comes with your choice of primarily pre-made Kuerig K-Cups that have coffee grounds in them OR primarily pre-made Keurig K-Cups that have teabag contents in them.
Me? If I wanted to make a cup of tea using my Keurig, I'd just put an empty K-Cup in the place I'd put it if I had filled it with my own coffee grounds. And hit the button to make it run as if my My K-Cup had something in it. This way, I'd be making just a cup of hot water down into my waiting drinking mug on the counter.
I would, of course, need to thoroughly clean my My K-Cup so it did not have any "residue" from coffee that I may have already used that My K-Cup. Just so that the clear water I was running from the Keurig would not have any taste of coffee in it.
Hope that helps?
