Who Wants More Delicious (and Sustainable) Coffee at Home?

Whether you want to stay safe, stay green or just stay in your PJ’s, brewing coffee at home gives you more control over your cup of java. Unlike buying from a take-out chain, you have the final say in where your beans com from, how they are brewed and ultimately the impact on your personal coffee footprint.

Whole Beans

Grinding your own beans fresh just before brewing is the coffee purist’s choice. And what choices you have!

Single Serve Coffee Pods

These little wonders have been a world wide hit, but have also left a huge footprint of disposable pods in landfills. Fortunately, compostable options are now available that let you have your single cup and reduce its impact.

Coffee Makers

A French press, or pour-over coffee maker is the most environmentally friendly option as it doesn’t have to be plugged in. (Though it won’t keep your coffee warm)

However you choose to take your coffee, a little extra thought towards its impact is an even better way to wake up.
