Copper Moon Coffee, Canadian coffee roaster Club Coffee create PurPod100
Partnership creates 100 percent compostable coffee pod
Copper Moon Coffee partnered with Canadian coffee roaster Club Coffee to introduce PurPod100 coffee pods. In addition to being compatible with Keurig 2.0 brewers and other brewing systems that accept K-Cup portion packs, the new single-serve cups are 100-percent compostable, the companies say. Club Coffee developed the pod from bio-based renewable resources and designed every part of the pod to be compostable, including the ring of the pod, which is made from coffee chaff, the outer layer of the coffee bean that is removed during the roasting process. Club Coffee currently is undergoing a rigorous process required by municipal compost manufacturers in North America to receive certification for the product within a few months. Copper Moon expects that its single-serve coffees in PurPod100 pods will be available in the American market later this year.
