Steeped Coffee Celebrates National Gourmet Coffee Day with a Call to Action to Reduce Single Serve Coffee Waste

Certified B Corp. Partners with 500+ Local Roasters to Deliver Gourmet Coffee in Compostable Single-Serve Packs

San Francisco, CA (01/18/2024) – Steeped Coffee, a Certified B Corp, is celebrating National Gourmet Coffee Day this January 18 with a non-traditional ask for gourmet coffee lovers — reduce your coffee waste. Steeped is leading a movement to reduce the world’s dependence on non-recyclable, single-serve coffee pods, and has pioneered a revolutionary single-serve brewing method that preserves the full flavor of gourmet coffee while being fully compostable and requiring no brewing machinery.

More than 10 billion single-serve coffee pods end up in landfills each year. The number of pods consumed since 2009 could wrap around the planet more than 500 times. With a process brewed similar to tea, Steeped is helping to make quality coffee from hundreds of top brands accessible and sustainable. Steeped Packs contain craft-roasted, freshly ground pre-portioned coffee that is triple nitro-sealed to guarantee each perfect, ‘Barista-Approved’ cup. The company’s Guilt-Free Packing is commercially compostable, from the outer packaging to the inner Steeped™ Brew Bags.

“At Steeped, we are changing the way people view single-serve coffee, delivering all of the benefits with none of the barriers,” said Josh Wilbur, Founder and CEO, Steeped Coffee. “We are proud to help drive a global movement to reduce our impact on the planet.”

Steeped was honored in 2023, making the 2023 Inc. Magazine’s Best in Business list, USA Today’s 10Best List and Good Housekeeping’s list of top coffee makers. More than 500 top roasters across the country now use the company’s revolutionary Steeped™ Brewing Method. Steeped Packs are available for purchase online, at grocery stores in your area, or through hospitality, office, and other wholesale providers.

“Steeped doesn’t take its barista-approved standards lightly and we’ve worked closely with industry leading experts to validate every aspect of the Steeped Method from freshness, quality, extraction, shelf life, and most importantly, consistent taste to bring the most authentic specialty experience directly to single-serve coffee lovers,” said Josh Wilbur, Founder and CEO, Steeped Coffee. “We are proud of the incredible partnerships we’ve forged with the industry’s top specialty coffee roasters, including names like Counter Culture, Addictive, and Cat and Cloud.”
