I take sustainability seriously and try to incorporate being conscious of our planet wherever I can in my life, so I was really intrigued when I saw these eco-friendly C-pods from Greater Goods. We have a Keurig machine at my office and while I love being able to quickly make a fresh cup of coffee, I really don’t like all the plastic waste that is generated. These C-pods are truly an ingenious solution to this problem. They fit into any standard Keurig machine, but look (and work) a bit differently from the normal K-cup. The lower portion, rather than being rigid plastic, is made of a sturdy paper-like filter material. This is actually nice in terms of the coffee as well, because it gives an additional filter step to the brew. I’ve had issues a few times with standard k-cups with some of the coffee grounds coming through the punctured hole into my coffee cup, but with this filter there is no risk of that!
The pods are packaged in vacuum sealed bags with 6 pods per bag. As soon as I opened the first bag I immediately released a wonderful coffee aroma and was optimistic that it would taste as good as it smelled. Indeed, it certainly does! I am a fan of dark roasts, and this Vista Blend is deep and intense, yet still smooth, without any bitter notes that sometimes accompany dark brews.
In addition, these are a really good deal. Even the 12 pack sells for under $1 per pod, and the bulk pack of 72 is under 50¢ per serving! I’m definitely a fan and when my workplace runs low on the other k-cups that we’ve been stocking, I will suggest that they consider ordering from Greater Goods instead.
