Smile Coffee Werks has unveiled the first-of-its-kind plant-based commercially compostable coffee pods. The patented technology is the first carbon-neutral single step disposable product on the market. The pods are made using renewable raw materials and have a 12-month shelf life. The Keurig® compatible K-Cups® will launch this spring.
“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.”
Smile Coffee Werks, a brand of Smile Beverage Werks, PBC, develops and manufactures responsibly sourced commercially compostable single-use coffee pods. Created by serial entrepreneur Michael Sands and green construction expert Frank Schuster, Smile Coffee Werks produces the only commercially compostable; BPI certified Keurig® and Nespresso® compatible pods that do not require any additional film for shelf life or separation of the lid, filter and grounds for disposal.
Smile Beverage Werks is not connected or associated with Nespresso®, Nestlé, Keurig®, or Keurig Dr. Pepper.
