The OneCup - An Environmentally Friendly Single Serving Coffee

Rogersfamilycoffee video

Rogers Family Coffee has produced a pretty compelling video that showcases one of our issues - that throwing away single serve coffee K-Cups and other formats into the trash is not great. The OneCup Single Serving Coffee - 97% Bio-Degradable video spells out all the details on how Rogers Family Coffee made a more recyclable and environmentally friendly single cup of coffee.

One of the best analogies is how tea bags can be environmentally friendly - then why not single cups? Also price is a factor for Rogers Family Coffee, and it's great to see that aspect teased out. Also - the single serve coffee format has always been a way to not throw out a pot of coffee you don't drink, but the solution isn't to add waste by throwing out 100s of K-Cups.

Video is after the jump.

We prefer this kind of packaging for our "k-cup" needs. We store them in Lock N Lock or glass jars after we open the package.

Coffee Pods have been biodegradable from day one. It's just unfortunate that K-Cups have mostly 'won' the format war.

I agree with Bruce. Coffee packed this way goes rancid very fast.

Good idea, the coffee's good but the packing is poor.They go stale since the main bag can't be sealed tight. To bad they can't single package since the big bag material is degradable. I won't buy them again the way they are packaged.
