It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into K-Cup. (Discuss) Proposed since January 2013.
When using a Keurig coffee system the act of buying the coffee refills called K-cups or pods can be an expensive endeavor. An alternative method is to empty a used K-cup, refill it with fresh coffee grounds and reseal it with a reusable hard plastic cap available from My-cap.com. Pod-Hopping refers to the act of using a clean or unused Keurig coffee "pod" or K-cup and a reusable "pod cap" from an already used or dirty K-cup to avoid cleaning the coffee grounds from the used one. This is considered to be a selfish act and rude behavior, generally unaccepted in a polite society.
