Finally. The pod that has it all!

Demtrio Melghem

We are very excited to introduce to you our Bridgehead pod – the pod that has it all! This is specialty quality coffee you can taste! It’s 100% certified compostable and its fairtrade and organic like all our coffees and teas. It’s k-cup compatible so for all of you who have a Keurig machine stowed away because of the landfill issue or lack of taste, give our pod a try. We think you’ll change your mind.

We know that many of our customers prefer pods at least some of the time, either for their first quick morning cup or for their office coffee machine. About 40% of households have a pod machine and pods are now almost as popular as traditional drip coffee at home. We realized this was a customer need that we couldn’t ignore, but it had to taste great and it couldn’t degrade the environment.

We were skeptical of pods for many years. The obvious landfill issue was the first barrier to overcome. We started to follow the development of PurPodTM technology, developed in Ontario through a partnership between Club Coffee, the University of Guelph and Competitive Green Technologies of Leamington that started in 2014. By 2016, a tested and 100% compostable pod was available.

We spent this past year working on getting the coffee to taste great by increasing the amount of coffee in the pod and sourcing high quality fairtrade and organic coffee. We are very pleased with the taste and body of our first two coffees! Buenas Medium Dark is a Colombian coffee designed as a satisfying morning brew with good body and rich toasty notes. Sumatran Dark is a full-bodied dark roast with classic Sumatran earthy tones and spicy notes.

Here’s more on the background of how the PurPodTM is constructed:

  • When can we expect a Tassimo pod?

  • Love your espresso coffees. Love that you’re introducing compostable pods. Unfortunately, K-cups are not compatible with Nespresso machines! If your K-cups are a success, perhaps you’ll consider adding a compostable Nespresso compatible pods (original pods). Although a friend of mine was in Amsterdam and found some beautiful jewellery fashioned from recycled Nespresso pods!
