If you’re anything like me, you enjoy a coffee every single morning without fail. There is something just so calming about a quiet morning (perhaps with a little HGTV in the background) and coffee that really prepares you for the day. Personally, I enjoy making my coffee in a french press or moka pot, the latter being the one I end up using the most. The ritual helps me keep a clear head so that when I am ready to begin my work, I am able to do so with a new found motivation! However, sometimes we wake up a little late and need something quick but don’t want to have to deal with the guilt of contributing to the endless landfill created by K-Cups.
For those of you who don’t know, traditional K-Cups are absolutely terrible for the environment. They are made with layers of plastic and foil in order to survive the Keurig brewing process. This means that there isn’t a way to recycle them and they are not biodegradable.
At first I tried to look up Keurig cups that could actually responsibly disposed of. Luckily, I stumbled upon a reusable K-Cup that you can re-fill with fresh coffee each time you use it!
I seriously cannot even put into words how excited I am about this. Not only do I feel better morally, I can put my own favorite coffee beans into this filter! I don’t know about you guys, but I have had a difficult time finding high quality coffee K-Cups. They’re weak and flat out awful!
If you aren’t in a rush though, I will always recommend making a ritual each morning out of making coffee the RIGHT WAY. In my world, that means by using either a French press or a moka pot and then grinding your own coffee beans. It takes a little bit longer, but the difference is night and day. Between the two, if I had to pick, I would go for the moka pot. If you need help selecting appropriate coffee beans, check out Save Thousands and Impress Your Friends With Moka Pot Coffee.
