DARIEN, Conn. — Smile Beverage Werks, a Delaware Public Benefits Corp., is launching a line of compostable K-cup style coffee pods for its brand, Smile Coffee Werks, and for private label for retailers.
Smile Coffee Werks pods are commercially compostable, carbon neutral and made from renewable plant-based materials, according to the company. The pods are compatible with Keurig and Nespresso machines and boast a 12-month shelf life.
Made with coffee sustainably sourced through Rainforest Alliance certified farms, Smile Coffee Werks coffee pods come in three flavors: High Country, a 100% Colombian RFA coffee; Werkday, a single-origin medium roast coffee; and Woke Up, a 100% Arabica bean dark roast.
“Never has it been so easy and convenient to go green with coffee pods,” said Michael Sands, co-founder of Smile Coffee Werks. “Single-serve coffee is hugely popular but creates burdensome waste to our environment. It’s now super simple for any consumer or private label brand to have a compostable pod and start being more environmentally sustainable.”
Smile Coffee Werks coffee pods are available in packs of 12, 24 and 72 on the company’s website, Amazon.com and Walmart.com.
