What is the difference between coffee pods?

Are you looking for a sustainable and flavorful way to enjoy your morning coffee? Look no further than Cameron’s Coffee and our EcoPods! We understand that there are a lot of options out there when it comes to coffee pods, but we are proud to say that our EcoPods stand out from the rest. Let’s take a closer look at what makes our pods so special.

Let’s Break Down the Different Types of Pods

Some brands offer espresso pods, these are coffee pods that are compatible with Espresso systems, like Nespresso. Then there are plastic bottom and soft bottom pods that are compatible with Keurig machines and other single-serve coffee brewing systems. 

Now, let’s get into the nitty-gritty of what makes Cameron’s EcoPods so special. Unlike traditional plastic coffee pods, our EcoPods are made with plant-based materials, including a compostable* mesh filter, ring, and paper lid. This means that not only are you getting a better-tasting cup of coffee, but you’re also doing your part to reduce waste and help the environment.

Our soft bottom, or real filter, EcoPods are unique to Cameron’s Coffee, and offer a more eco-friendly alternative to plastic bottom pods. They are compatible with most single-serve coffee brewing systems, like Keurig but they do not use a plastic cup.

We know that as a conscious coffee drinker, you care about the environmental impact of your coffee pods. That’s why we’re proud to say that Cameron’s EcoPods are 100% compostable*! Our pods are made with plant-based materials and have been certified for industrial compost facilities, meaning that they will break down into organic matter with the proper application of moisture, heat, and oxygen. Plus, because our pods follow ASTM D6400 standards, they won’t leave any damaging levels of toxins in the soil.

Can you compost coffee pods?

You can’t compost all coffee pods, but you can compost Cameron’s Coffee EcoPods. When it comes to disposing of our EcoPods, there are a couple of options:

We encourage the growth of industrial and municipal composting facilities. While they don’t exist everywhere yet, we hope that you’ll support their expansion. To find a facility near you, we recommend checking out the EPA Excess Food Opportunities Map

If you’re interested in home composting, we’ve found that our EcoPods can break down into organic matter if you use proper techniques. While our pods haven’t been certified for home composting yet, we have successfully composted them in our own home composting containers. For more information on how to compost at home, we recommend visiting the EPA, Planet Natural Research Center, or Eartheasy websites. With our EcoPods, you can enjoy a delicious cup of coffee while also doing your part to protect the planet!

And while some may worry that the cost per cup of coffee pods is higher than other options such as ground coffee or whole beans, we believe that the convenience and sustainability benefits of our EcoPods make them well worth the investment.

Finally, we have a range of delicious flavors available for our EcoPods, including fan favorites such as Organic Breakfast Blend, Vanilla Hazelnut, Chocolate Caramel Brownie, and Jamaican Blend.
