About Our Coffee Pods

Our coffee pods are made using 100% recyclable materials. The design of our coffee pods is made from #5 polypropylene, which can be easily opened to remove the coffee grounds. After a quick rinse, you can simply throw it into the recycle bin.



These pods contain very fresh coffee, which requires a sturdier pod than normal. Your brewer may have trouble piercing the lid. If you get an unsatisfactory cup (weak coffee or coffee grounds in cup,) please just remove the flavor label on the top of the pod before brewing. Enjoy!

Freshly roasted coffee releases a substantial volume of carbon dioxide and volatile organic compounds during the first two weeks after roasting.  Most K Cup manufacturers allow their coffee to sit for months before packing, which makes their coffee stable but also stale.  Since they experience no changes in pressure, they can use thin materials.

Our pods are filled with coffee that is roasted the same day that they are packed.  They have thicker walls and one-way permeable lids to allow the fresh coffee to withstand building internal pressure and to degas in transit, making for a great cup of coffee on arrival.

Most Keurig machines in homes and offices, as well as many still sold on the market, have a sole top needle that pierces the lid and injects heated water. This design works well with all versions of K Cups, including ours.

The Keurig Premium machines have a new design with five prongs on top. This is designed to extract more flavor from stale coffee.  The piercing pressure is spread across five points rather than one. With our thicker lids, only some prongs penetrate fully. The result can be water flowing across the pod rather than through, causing grinds to backflow and to spill water. Removing the top label reduces the thickness enough to allow all five prongs to penetrate.
