The World's First Plantable Coffee Cup

Cofee cup renewable photo main 600x450

There’s a really cool project over at Kickstarter that’s been funded and has 43 hours to go we think you should know about especially if you live in California. It’s the first plantable coffee cup that has native seeds embedded within the material to be used for reforestation in local communities. The company has developed a post consumer paper based cup which will be able to extract over 1 ton of CO2 out of the atmosphere annually once planted. And even if you decide to throw away and not plant, the cup it's no problem. The cup is compost certified and will be able to biodegrade within 180 days leaving the seeds and cup itself to turn into nutrients for other plants to enjoy! 

Here’s how it works:

  • The consumer drinks their coffee from the coffee shop. If they choose to take the cup with them, they can plant it in several scenarios based off of the seed variety embedded within the cup.
  • The seed variety is displayed on the front of their cup as well as planting instructions on the bottom of the cup.
  • Unravel the cup, soak in water for 5 minutes and watch it grow.

Numi Rooibos Chai Real Cups Review

IMGP6218 numi review

We continue our review of the Numi Organic Teas Real Cups today by checking out the 2nd flavor in the line-up… Numi Rooibos Chai Real Cups. Normally we associate chai tea as having a traditional black tea base, so to have one with a rooibos base was an interesting change of pace. We always found that taking a chai tea black rendered the spices way too potent and created an intoxicatingly over-spiced cup which was to the point of being sickening, hence why most chai teas are usually transformed into chai lattes via the addition of milk. Would the lighter bodied rooibos tea make any difference this time around? Would it allow us to finally drink a chai tea au natural (i.e. sans milk)? Read on to find out.

RSVP Endurance Sugar Bowl - Sweeten Up Your Coffee

41zwiIAs zL

The RSVP Endurance Sugar Bowl is a simple straight forward sugar bowl that we use just about every morning here at Single Serve Coffee. It’s been with us for nearly 15+ years, and the polished stainless steel exterior still shines. The sugar bowl includes a 4-1/2’ spoon, and the foot print for the sugar Bowl is 3-1/4' in diameter, 2-1/4’ tall. Our go to sugar that fills it is also Sugar in the Raw. We love the flavor it imbues on the various coffees we drink.

A Problem is Brewing for K-Cups and the Environment

Kcups environment today

Over at The Atlantic we find another article on a problem brewing for all of us in the single serve coffee world that use non-recyclable K-Cups - how bad is this for the environment? We do know Keurig Green Mountain has pledged to get the problem resolved by 2020, but that’s 5 years from now. We also know there are some K-Cups not from Keurig Green Mountain that are recyclable in part. We also know throwing things into landfills is not the best way to care for our planet.

The article also features the creator of the K-Cup and Keurig brewer - John Sylvan who always has something funny to say about single serve coffee:

 "‘I don't have one. They're kind of expensive to use,’ John Sylvan told me frankly, of Keurig K-Cups, the single-serve brewing pods that have fundamentally changed the coffee experience in recent years. ‘Plus it’s not like drip coffee is tough to make.’ Which would seem like a pretty banal sentiment, were Sylvan not the inventor of the K-Cup."
