There are 3 K-Cup filters and 1 K-Carafe file in this box. These reusable coffee filters are made with a fine metal mesh. Washing the coffee grounds out is easy. Open the lid, turn the filter upside down and rinsed under running water. It was then ready to use again. The K-Cup filters are purple in color with gold mesh. The K-Carafe filter is orange with the gold mesh. I would tell anyone who wants to use their own brand of coffee that this is the reusable filters they should get.
