I absolutely adore good coffee and since I’m the only one in the house that drinks it, I’ve started to use my Keurig almost exclusively for preparing coffee each day. I love being able to make as much or as little coffee as I want and the fact that each cup of coffee I drink is always fresh and perfect is a huge plus too.But all those little K-Cups do create a lot of added waste and so when I heard about the new OneCoffee cups from Canterbury Coffee, I was intrigued. Not only does the company produce Keurig-compatible single-serve cups in a variety of organic, fair-trade coffees including Breakfast Blend, French Roast, Decaf Dark, Columbian, Peruvian, Sumatran, Ethiopian and a Variety Pack, each of the pods contains 40% less plastic than traditional K-cups and is 90% biodegradable! The concept sounded amazing and I couldn’t wait to see what OneCoffee was like.

I received an assortment of the different OneCoffee cups to review and considering how much I love coffee, I was in heaven. Deciding which one to try first was no easy task but I eventually decided to sample the Breakfast Blend. This mellow variety is perfect for those that like a milder coffee. The Ethiopian had a sharper, darker taste and was probably my favourite variety. And the Sumatran had a delicious rich and smooth taste that I loved savouring in the afternoon.
But it was the design of the OneCoffee single-serve cups themselves that I really fell in love with. Rather than being a solid plastic unit, the cups feature a mesh that’s more similar to a regular coffee filter with a plastic top. The cup drops into my Keurig machine and then the water filters through the mesh to brew a delicious cup of coffee without all the waste!
