Crown Roast iFillCup™ K-Cups® are 100% Recyclable
Crown Roast is proud to be a partner with iFillCup™ which has created the first 100% recyclable single-serve cups on the market.
Crown Roast Commitment to Sustainability
Other brands claim to offer a “greener” K-Cup®, but the fact is that only some parts of their cups can be recycled. With Crown Roast iFillCup™ single-serve cups, made from #5 polypropylene (accepted in most communities), you can place the whole cup into the recycling bin with no worries. You can enjoy the best cup of coffee you’ve ever had AND feel good about doing your part to reduce waste.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
One of the best ways to live greener is to reduce your carbon footprint. Crown Roast partners directly with local artisan roasters, so your coffee doesn’t have to travel as far, which means less carbon dioxide emissions. And because your coffee is roasted & ground in small batches, it doesn’t languish in a huge warehouse for months on end, growing stale in the process.
No matter how you look at it, Crown Roast iFillCup™ is a better, tastier, and “greener” cup of coffee.
A little History of Automatic K-Cup®
Coffee Filling Machines
When K-Cups® were first introduced, the initial coffee filling machines used a non-pleated filter. They did a poor job of distributing water during the brew cycle, resulting in inconsistent, watery coffee. This caused many coffee lovers to avoid K-Cups®. They stayed with their slow drip coffeemakers.
In 2008 Keurig replaced their old filling system to solve the watery coffee issue. They use expensive machines that can produce pleated filter cups. By switching to pleated filters, water was distributed more evenly during the brewing cycle, reducing “channeling” and solving the problem of watery coffee.
However, a new problem arose. With high pump pressure in 2.0 K-Cup® brewers, and as more K-Cup® filling machines enter the market, there were frequent recalls of cups produced by low-quality filling machines that used weak paper filters or created poor heat seals, which would then break or tear during the brew cycle.
Our cups use technology to include pleated polypropylene filters inside the cups, which are 10X stronger than any paper. This successfully solves both the channeling issue and the problem of breaking & tearing.
