What is a coffee pod?
Coffee pods are pre-measured for single-cup brewing, which means no grinding, no measuring,
no mess—one pod equals one perfect cup! Single-cup brewing was developed as a solution
to varying coffee tastes in the office environment. Coffee pods evolved from single-cup
brewing systems that have been used in Europe for the past 30 years.
Why coffee pods?
Simply put, coffee pods offer a higher quality single-cup. Remember the old saying, ‘You
can’t please all the people, all of the time?’ With pods you can! And here’s why—you
have the choice of a variety of specialty-grade coffees and teas from around the
world. Coffee pods cater to individual tastes. Unlike a ‘pot’ of coffee — with pods one size
can fit all.
By purchasing a variety of coffee and tea pods, it’s as if you have a coffee house
right in your own kitchen! Plus, there’s no scooping, no measuring, no filters,
no mess. Pods are quick and easy. Imagine the perfect cup in seconds! Your friends
and family will be amazed!
The environmental single-cup choice
Due to their construction, pods are inherently respectful to the environment. Pods
are the earth-friendly alternative to other package intensive single-cup options
that are often associated with mediocre flavor, thin body, and a plastic aftertaste.
Spent pods are fully biodegradable and make great garden compost. While the overwrap
that preserves the freshness of each pod is not compostable or recyclable, this
represents a small fraction of the volume of waste generated by other single-cup
systems. Pod cartons are made from 100% recycled material (50%+ post consumer).
