The daily coffee habit drives millions to visit the local cafe before work or to brew from a single-use pod. Whether you’re carrying a re-usable mug or not, the source behind where you get your coffee plays a major role in waste productivity. According to the NY Times, Keurig alone sold over nine billion single–serve capsules in 2015—that’s 24 million used per day and ending up in landfills. However, the cost of sustainability doesn’t have to crash daily conveniences. Steeped Coffee is a startup that keeps the grind alive without threatening the environment.
It’s time to save the planet. But first, coffee.
Enjoy your brew the way you’d enjoy a cup of tea. Steeped Coffee makes bags of coffee grounds that are nitro sealed, compostable, and made of recyclable material. Rather than plowing through single-use pods or spending $6 on a cup from the cafe, coffee lovers can quickly prepare their own by steeping their coffee in just five minutes.
If you’re wondering why other companies aren’t doing this, it’s because they haven’t figured out how to keep coffee grounds fresh. According to Steeped Coffee’s CEO, Josh Wilbur, “Premium coffee roasters have shied away from offering their specialty beans in single-serve packaging because it’s been nearly impossible to keep ground coffee fresh, which quickly ruins the taste. With our nitro-sealed bags, oxygen is replaced with nitrogen, so the coffee stays fresh as if it was ground moments ago.”

Whether you work in the office or travel in a van, having the option to brew your coffee just about anywhere keeps convenience alive without sacrificing the planet’s wellbeing. The best part is that these bags are filled with ethically sourced coffee beans from farmers. Steep up your game. All you need is a hot cup of water. The rest is in the bag.
