There’s a lot of waste in single serve coffee, and we all know it. There’s a ton of trash and other waste being produced from the industry, and there’s only a few more eco-friendly options within the single serve coffee product offerings. Sure some of the K-Cups from non-licensed coffee roasters can be recycled, but it’s simply not enough.
The East Bay Express has a rather extensive article on the Dark Side of Single Serve Coffee, and many of the points about the waste within the single serve coffee category is hard to refute. So where does all this waste come from? 12 percent of US households now have a single-cup brewer, and for example Peet’s coffee just started making K-Cups. With just one roaster added like Peets it equals hundreds of millions of pounds of unrecyclable trash for the nation's landfills each year.
So what do we do? One thing we can do is use more reusable filters with our single serve coffee brewers. Another option is to try and only buy K-cups that are recyclable or biodegradable, or compostable.
What we really want is recyclable K-Cups from Green Mountain, and maybe with Keurig 2.0 and new offerings in the future this will happen and the waste will stop.

Canada recently experience something it hadn’t seen for quite a while in the retail scene… a deluge of new T-Disc flavors for the Tassimo system. Today we take a look at the 1st of 2 new flavors that were introduced, namely the Tetley Orange Pekoe Tea T-Discs.
Tetley got its start as a tea merchant business founded in Yorkshire, England back in 1837 by brothers Joseph & Edward Tetley. They later relocated to London and by 1953, the company became the first to sell their tea in tea-bag format in the UK. Fast forward to present day and Tetley is now owned by Tata Global Beverages of India, the 2nd largest tea-producing company world-wide. This has ensured that Tetley has become a household name in many countries. Continue reading: "Tetley Orange Pekoe Tea T-Discs Review"

We all know that folks who enjoy decaf coffees (or those who are required to drink it due to caffeine sensitivity/headaches) are unfortunately a target demographic which has been ignored for far too long. Just because you can drink regular coffee doesn't mean you should have to suffer with bland offerings and unflavored choices. Well, our friends at ECS Coffee Inc. thought so as well and decided to fix the problem with the first specialty flavored DECAF Single Cup on the market. They even created their own cheeky commercial for the flavor (check the video at the bottom of the product page on their site, link at end of review)
Sure, there may be a few flavored decafs on the market, but they're mostly staple flavors like French Vanilla or Hazelnut... they're ok, but... well, kind of meh. Where's the sense of adventure? Where's the innovative combination of various flavors? Why aren't limited edition K-Cups also sold in decaf versions? How about Maple Cinnamon French Toast? Is that adventurous enough of a decaf flavor for ya? Now that we've got your attention, let's put this flavor through its paces and see if ECS have created something worthy of celebration for decaf fans.
