K-Cups ... do you use them more than once?

Have any of you used your K-Cup more than once? ... if so, how many times? ...

Thanks ...

(sorry if this was discussed before ... I may have missed it) ...

Unless you like super weak, tastes almost like water, kind of coffee, don't (I've tried){#emotions_dlg.laugh}.

Yes, I use them twice all the time and I always get a good cup of coffee. But I use them fairly soon together (no more than a 1/2 hour between cups).

I accidentally used a k cup twice, and had very weak coffee. I like my coffee strong. "I am woman, hear me roar."

Only in the compost pile -- open them up and shake the grounds into the pile.

I don't like very strong coffee so I use it twice and a really big cup. Use the large portion size the first time and for the second time I pick the smallest amount. It makes a perfect brew for me. I wouldn't use the second time by itself not mixed with the first brew, as others have said super super weak.

I use ours twice. I've always been a tea drinker. My husband loves very strong, bold coffee. Since I had read about possible benefits to drinking coffee, I tried reusing a K-cup after my husband made a cup.

It was fine for me. Plus, since it had already been used, the caffeine leaves with the first run-through of water, as I'm supposed to stay away from caffeine. Actually, you can also decaffeinate fresh brewed tea the same way, according to my doc. You can pour water to make a pot of tea, and let it sit for maybe 15 seconds. Discard the water, and pour fresh hot water into the pot.

"Real" coffee drinkers might not like a k-cup used twice. But, I don't like the strong taste of coffee.
