Steeped Coffee’s Single-Serve Pouch Recognized for Recyclable Design
Steeped, Inc., a Santa Cruz, CA-based startup that is revolutionizing the way people prepare and enjoy premium single-serve coffee, won the Best New Product award at the 2019 Specialty Coffee Expo in Boston for their packaging made using renewable and compostable materials.
Josh Wilbur, founder and CEO of Steeped Coffee, patented the Steeped brewing method in response to the environmental impact of billions of unrecyclable coffee pods accumulating in landfills each year. Unable to find viable options, Steeped sourced and developed its own sustainable packaging materials, which are now available to other consumer packaged goods companies. Its proprietary single-serve brewing method delivers freshly ground, nitro-sealed specialty coffee in guilt-free packaging.
