Do you grab yourself a coffee on the way to work? There’s nothing better than starting the day with a caffeine hit to wake yourself up.
Big coffee chains like Starbucks are probably the easiest option when it comes to grabbing a cup on-the-go. They’re readily available and ingrained in our shopping habits. But have you ever stopped to consider what your coffee habits are doing to the environment?
We understand - making your own cappuccino, latte, espresso or frappuccino at home can be long-winded and messy, and often doesn’t end up tasting as good as a classic Starbucks coffee. But brewing your own fresh coffee at home can be rewarding, delicious, enjoyable - and much better for the environment.
When you opt to make your coffee at home using your own reusable coffee cup, you’re reducing your plastic waste and saving money at the same time. There are plenty of amazing, eco-friendly products to help you brew the perfect cup, too.
The pour-over method typically takes longer than drip coffee - so the results are a more vibrant, rich, bold taste. If you’ve never given pour-over coffee a try, grab yourself a Chemex Coffee Maker and bonded filters to make your own at home.
Refillable coffee pods
Have you got a trusty coffee machine? Pod coffee machines like Nespresso or Dolce Gusto are a wonderful way to recreate cafe or coffee house standard drinks from the comfort of your own home. However, the little throwaway pods create a lot of unnecessary waste.
A wonderful way to avoid that waste is by investing in some reusable and refillable pods. WayCap coffee pods are made from stainless steel with a silicone lid, to help you refill and use them again and again. Alternatively, the Coffeeduck is compatible with Senseo coffee machines - and it’s suitable for all coffee types.
