At business offices nationwide, the single-serve coffee market is booming with the popularity of the Keurig® coffee machine and K-Cups®.
With the success of K-Cups® comes a high price to the environment – they are single-use plastic containers that are not recyclable. In 2013, 10 billion K-Cups® are expected to end up in landfills, a fact that doesn’t sit well with many consumers and local businesses.
Brioni’s Coffee Company, LLC of Glastonbury has the solution: the industry’s first completely, environmentally friendly alternative to K-Cups®.
“Brioni’s Green Cup Coffee Pods are compostable, less expensive and produce a superior cup of coffee,” said Jim Megee, vice president of Brioni’s Coffee Company.
“We have seen tremendous growth in our retail single-serve business and now our consumers are asking for our coffee in their offices,” Megee continued. “Brioni’s coffee products are available in nearly 1,000 retail stores and online.”
Brioni’s Coffee Company has been replacing Keurig® machines in offices with single-serve pod brewing machines, Megee added.
“Those who switch from K-Cups® to Brioni’s Green Cup Coffee Pods are reducing their costs for office coffee and reducing waste into landfills,” he said.
Brioni’s has converted dozens of K-Cup customers in the month of January to coffee pods, including: Gengras Motors, Hartford Distributors, Hartford Anesthesiology, Burns & McDonnell Engineering, Morris Group and many others including large law firms and distribution companies.
“Reducing waste is a continuing priority,” said Chip Gengras, president of Gengras Motors. “By switching to Brioni’s Green Cup Coffee Pods, we were able to
eliminate the wasteful K-Cups and save money, plus the pods make a better cup of coffee.”
Brioni’s Coffee Company, LLC is a Glastonbury specialty coffee company that produces premium Arabica coffees, functional coffees with health benefits and The Green Cup, an environmentally friendly single-serve coffee option.
