Committed environmentalists and those who try to live green are in a quandary: They may want the ease of single-serving K-cups, but can’t abide the plastic and foil sent to the landfill.

Tayst Coffee, which has an office coffee program for businesses that use hundreds of K-cups a month, developed an alternative: biodegradable/compostable K-cups for both Keurig and Nespresso machines.

Individuals can buy them too, via a monthly delivery “club.” You can buy 30, 40, or 60 pods a month, starting at $ 22.00.

You can try it yourself, with a free trial shipment that leads into the club.

Coffee options include

  • Bold & Brazen
  • Bold & Brilliant
  • Medium & Magnificent
  • Medium & Heroic
  • Vintage Vanilla Cream
  • Defiantly Decaf
  •  
    You can try a sampler before making a decision. You can change your selection or cancel at any time.

    You can send a one-time gift, or a 3- or 6-month club.

    Head to Tayst.com for your sample box or to send a gift.
