Smile Beverage Werks® Launches Compostable K-Cup® Compatible Coffee Pods

DARIEN, CT, March 4, 2021 — Smile Beverage Werks®, a Delaware Public Benefits Corp., is proud to launch its new commercially compostable K-cup® style coffee pods for their own brand, Smile Coffee Werks®, and for private label for leading retailers. These pods are compatible with the Keurig® machines right on your kitchen counter or in your office but are a whole lot more environmentally sustainable than traditional single-serve plastic and aluminum coffee pods. SBW® pods are commercially compostable, carbon neutral and made from renewable plant-based materials, plus they boast a 12+ month shelf-life.

“Never has it been so easy and convenient to go green with coffee pods. Single-serve coffee is hugely popular but creates burdensome waste to our environment. It’s now super simple for any consumer or private label brand to have a compostable pod and start being more environmentally sustainable.” says Michael Sands, Co-Founder of Smile Coffee Werks®.

SBW® pods are the real deal, and they will launch in three delicious flavors: High Country (a 100% Colombian RFA coffee), Werkday (their smoothest, easiest drinking, single-origin, medium roast coffee) and Woke Up (a 100% Arabica bean, bold, velvety and full-bodied dark roast).

There are no grounds to clean and no lid separation needed. Smile Coffee Werks® makes pods that are compatible with both Keurig® K-Cup® brewers and also Nespresso® original style coffee / espresso makers. They’re set to launch in 12, 24, and 72 count cartons for purchase at SmileCoffeeWerks.com, Amazon.com and Walmart.com. All coffee is deliciously and responsibly sourced through Rainforest Alliance.

SBW® pods are a much-needed answer to the environmental impact of single-use plastic waste from customer packaged goods. SBW® offers patented pods that are non-PLA, Compostable/ Biodegradable (certified), Carbon Neutral (verified), free from BPA/PFAS, and boast a 12-month+ shelf life.
