DARIEN, Conn., U.S. – Smile Coffee Werks has unveiled the first-of-its-kind compostable coffee pods made from renewable raw materials with over a 12-month shelf life. The patented technology utilizes a plant based, BPA-free cup and top, creating a commercially compostable coffee product; a seamless fit for waste-conscious consumers, private labels, retailers and hospitality groups alike.
The pods are compatible with Nespresso® classic style coffee makers, BPI-certified and commercially compostable in 12 weeks. Made from renewable plant-based products, the pods are the first carbon neutral, single step disposal product to hit the market.
Smile Coffee Werks is available for purchase at SmileCoffeeWerks.com in compatible 100% Arabica Espresso pods (24 count, $15.99). Smile plans to unveil Keurig® compatible K-Cups® in spring 2020.
“Single serve coffee is hugely popular and convenient, but creates tremendous waste to our environment,” says Michael Sands, Co-Founder of Smile Coffee Werks. “Coffee consumers can now purchase commercially compostable products, a guilt-free way to enjoy your daily cup of joe.”
