Yes, you can reuse Keurig pods, but they’re meant to be single-use. Using them more than once can give you a flavorless, weak cup of coffee. The brewing process can also leave grounds and oils behind that can clog your filter and potentially cause damage to the machine.
We’ll dive deeper into whether you can use your pods more than once, how many times you can reuse them, how to do so, and more below. We aim to ensure you get the most out of your coffee experience.

How Do You Reuse Keurig Pods?
Reusable/Refillable Pods – You can buy a refillable or reusable pod that Keurig designed to use more than once without sacrificing flavor. These reusable pods are an excellent choice, and the screen ensures the grounds don’t slip out and clog your machine. You can choose from plastic or stainless steel; all you have to do is fill it with coffee grounds and use it like a single-use K-cup. Empty the grounds and rinse them out after each use.
Recyclable Pods – Some companies have recyclable pods with eco-friendly materials in their makeup that you can use several times before tossing them into the recycle bin. All you have to do is brew your coffee, empty the grounds, and rinse the pod. You can use it a second time with fresh grounds or recycle it when it dries out.
