The hubby and I purchased ourselves a Keurig brewer last November and we love it! Yes, we were late to the “Keurig Game” – but we are catching up quickly… with the waste. Yes, the little plastic cups that cannot be recycled. Which is why I was so excited to find the OneCup from Rogers Family Company, featuring a 97% bio-degradable single serve coffee pack.
Coffee and a Conscious with OneCup
With a little one at home, a good cup of coffee is more important than ever. Struggling to get up in the morning – we are SO glad we purchased the quick and easy Keurig brewing machine. However, in 2013, it is estimated there were enough K-cups produced to circle the globe 10.5 times. Seriously, that is a lot of plastic. In their defense, producers of the K-cups are working on creating recyclable cups and expect to have them all made of recyclable plastic in just a few years. Until that time, I am happy to be using the OneCup! The only thing about OneCup that isn’t bio-degradable is the mesh liner – pull it off and throw the rest in your composter.
The Rogers Family Company OneCups contain 100% Arabica coffee beans from shade grown farms. They have tons of flavors from Pumpkin Spice to French Roast. They have a variety of Organic Coffee offerings as well. My husband’s favorite has been the Fog Chaser. Lately I have been more of a tea drinker and love the Redelicious Hibiscus Blend. On top of their bio-degradable cup, their coffee is more affordable than the K-Cups at my local grocery store.
Rogers Family Coffee has premium, sustainable, fair and direct trade coffee and tea. They are truly growing coffee for good with their Community Aid Program, restoring thousands of acres of rain forest by farming only with shade grown farms. They sell “regular” coffee as well with Organic, Decaf, Flavored varieties as well as Gourmet Tea. Make sure to visit the Rogers Family Company store to shop their brands.
