How to find the organic K-cup coffee for your Keurig Brewer.

organic, fair trade K-Cups

Yes, you can buy organic K-cups. In fact, there’s quite a choice, largely because so many different coffee brands are now offering their coffees in the K-Cup format.

That said, if you have a Keurig 2.0 brewer, ONLY K-Cups produced by them or their licensed partners will work.

Where to buy your organic K-cup coffee...

Your first stop is to check out your local supermarket. If you're lucky, you'll find something.

Failing that, you can get organic K-Cups at

If you’re thinking “green”, what about those plastic cups?

We find a bit of a conflict here. It’s great to choose organic coffee over coffee treated with artificial pesticides and other chemicals. But if you are also environmentally conscious, the plastic cups in which K-cup coffee is packaged might give you pause for thought.

When you buy K-cups, there is a LOT of packaging to throw away. Particularly when compared to buying a brown paper bag of whole beans.

Fortunately there is a way in which you can brew organic coffee in your Keurig brewer, and also avoid the extra packaging.

Get yourself a My K-Cup Reusable coffee filter. You simple buy organic coffee by the pound, grind it, fill your my K-Cup and put it into the brewer.

It’s true, you have to clean it after each use, and fill it again with ground coffee before you brew, but it is a much more environmentally friendly way to enjoy organic K-cup coffee.
