  • How to Make Your Coffee More Eco-Friendly

    April 02, 2021 2 min read

    These days we’re all looking for ways to be more eco-friendly in every aspect of our lives. Our 3 cup a day coffee habit is no exception. So if you want to green your morning coffee routine, here are 5 quick tips to help you reduce your footprint each time you brew!


    REUSE YOUR GROUNDS 

    Don’t worry, this isn’t a suggestion to brew your grounds again for a second cup. Brewed coffee grounds are the Swiss army knife of discarded foods. They can be used as garden fertilizer, deodorizer and insect repellant. So instead of simply throwing them away, put them to work for you.


    CHANGE YOUR BREWING METHOD

    Some methods of brewing produce more waste than others. For example, using a french press eliminates the need for paper filters. The Primula cold brew system we offer similarly produces only grounds as waste. Changing to a lower impact brewing method is a simple way to be a bit more eco-friendly, and it adds up over time.


    ALWAYS DRINK FROM REUSABLE CONTAINERS

    Whether you’re at home or on the go, make sure you’re using a reusable mug or tumbler. Disposable paper cups may provide a little convenience, but they are not so great for the environment. And they don’t keep your coffee hot as long as, say... a double-walled, vacuum-sealed, stainless steel tumbler. Especially one with a cool motto or logo on it…


    DRINK ORGANIC COFFEE

    Coffee grown in the traditional manner uses a ton of pesticides, unfortunately. Organic-certified coffee prohibits the use of these pesticides, which not only reduces pollution, it makes for a better tasting cup. 


    CHOOSE ARABICA BEANS

    Arabica and Robusta are the two most popular types of coffee beans. But there are pretty big differences between them. Besides having a smoother, sweeter flavor, arabica beans are grown in a much more sustainable manner. So choosing Arabica rather than Robusta is a simple way to help out the planet. And, of course, all Grounds & Hounds beans are 100% Arabica.
