The Coffee Scooper That Amazon Shoppers Are Obsessed With
Despite the convenience factor, there’s an almost universal guilt that comes with discarding single-use coffee pods. (The founder of K-Cups, John Sylvan, has even gone on record to admit that he regrets inventing those pesky pods in the first place!) The realization that our wasteful coffee habits are contributing to major landfill waste has led to a desire to cut back.
Luckily, there has been lots of innovation in the coffee pod field, including the development of reusable ones, which you can fill with grounds and pop into your Keurig just like you’re used to! That smart innovation, has led to yet another clever invention: The Perfect Pod EZ-Scoop, a 2-in-1 coffee scoop and funnel for single-serve refillable capsules.

Amazon users can’t stop gushing over this handy contraption, which scoops and pours the optimal amount of coffee grounds (up to 2 tablespoons) into the pod with no mess — thanks to the built-in funnel. It has more than 2,000 ratings, most of which give this gadget five stars.
Here are some highlights of those top reviews.
“In an effort to save $$ and [cut out] non-recyclable K-cups, we decided to use the generic refillable cups. I’ve been filling them with a spoon — what a mess! I tried using a teaspoon and a tablespoon. In both cases, coffee grounds went everywhere. This little gadget works great! It’s easy to use, too. You can control how much you fill the cup just by controlling how much you’re scooping then, with a flip, you easily dump it into the empty k-cup. And next to no spilled coffee!”
“This is an awesome gadget. We wanted to save money by using the reusable pods, but know how messy that can sometimes be. We bought this, along with the cute little filters. After placing the filter in the pod, I use this to flawlessly fill the cup, then turn the scoop around and use the back of it to press the coffee and filter into the pod. Perfect every time!”
“A very handy little contraption. Before I obtained this, I would spoon coffee out of a canister and try to get it into the Keurig coffee single serve filter. Invariable, I spilled coffee on the counter, it was really messy! (I have tremors) With this scoop, you open it, scoop some coffee out of the canister, turn the scoop upside down and put it in the filter. It’s idiot proof! One other thing, it is plastic, but it is well made, no problems at all.”
