Canterbury Coffee, a leading global roaster and supplier of specialty coffees and related beverages since 1981, introduces OneCoffee, a biodegradable, fair-trade, organic K-Cup compatible cup for use with Keurig coffee makers. OneCoffee is Organic Single Serve Coffee made with 100% strictly hard-bean, organic and fair-trade Arabica coffees.
“Previously we referred to K-Cups as the inconvenient convenience due to the amount of waste generated from these time-saving gems. The K-Cup exploded onto the market but consumers have remained deeply concerned about disposal of the cups. OneCoffee offers a solution to that problem by creating the world’s first biodegradable, organic and fair trade single serve coffee,” says Derek Perkins, sr. marketing manager at Canterbury Coffee. “Not only is OneCoffee eco-friendly, but the taste is also critical. As with all Canterbury products, we use only 100% strictly hard-bean, organic Arabica coffees with OneCoffee.”
OneCoffee’s soft bottomed cups use 40% less plastic than K-Cups, are 90% compostable/biodegradable, and packaging is carbon neutral. In addition, all coffees are fair-trade and organic for sustainability at origin. Standard K-Cups are made of plastic integrated with a coffee filter, coffee grounds, and plastic foil top with no easy way to separate the components for recycling.
OneCoffee offers a variety of flavors that include Breakfast Blend, French Roast, Decaf Dark, Columbian, Peruvian, Sumatran, Ethiopian and a Variety Pack. All blends are compatible with K-Cup style brewers and are individually wrapped for freshness and safety. OneCoffee is also perfect for those who are Vegan, Halal, Kosher and are BPA Free.
