This is a tasty alternative to k-cups.
These are a great option over the standard K-Cups. The coffee is very good quality and there is less waste than with a k-cup. I throw my used Kienna pods in the compost and have no guilt over the single use coffee pods.
I've been looking for Fair Trade, Organic coffee that comes in pods that are compostable and/or recyclable packaging for my Keurig. There are only a few brands out there, and most of them are "mostly" biodegradable but you either have to take them apart and still throw parts of it out, or the non-environmentally friendly packaging offsets the benefit of the partially biodegradable pod. Then I found Kienna. Although these pods are not intended for the Keurig, they have provided a handy little container that makes them fit and work great. The pods are completely compostable - look like teabags! - and the packaging is completely recyclable. And the coffee itself is both organic and certified FTO. The variety is fabulous, coming from great coffee countries like Guatemala as well as Columbia, and there are different roasts (light - dark) and a few flavour choices. Really fantastic taste, too! I am pretty much hooked, and am not likely to go back to the regular Keurig pods. The only thing better is when I buy organic FTO whole beans, grind them fresh, and use my K-cup adapter. If you haven't tried it, look for it, and try it out!
