Inside Scoop SF » On Earth Day, Rethinking the Paper Coffee Cup

Media_httpinsidescoop_hhacu

And what about all those single cup, e.g. K-Cup, plastic cups? Luckily the industry is looking into a more environmentally responsible single brew container. We use a single cup brewer but use the optional wire basket that allows us to use the ground coffee of our choice. And it is also much easier to recycle the grounds. To show good faith in their statement of becoming environmentally friendly in the future, the single brew machine manufacturers should supply the over priced brewing basket free with all new coffee makers and to present owners. Brewing one cup of coffee, or tea for that matter, is a waste of energy. So even with a recyclable “K-Cup” or the screen basket, the single brew machine should be recycled and replaced with a French press or other more efficient coffee maker. And something else to consider, is bisphenol A present in the tubing of single brew coffee makers? How far will you go to help make Earth Day count?
