A gift box of Tayst coffee has 20 to 60 biodegradable K-cups (photo by Mary Ann S. | Yelp).
 Finally, the greenest person can use K-cups (photo courtesy Tayst Coffee).
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
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.
