Smile Beverage Werks® Launches Compostable Coffee Pods Compatible With Keurig Brewers


DARIEN, CT, March 4, 2021 — Smile Beverage Werks®, a Delaware Public Benefits Corp., is proud to launch its new commercially compostable coffee pods that are compatible with Keurig brewers for their own brand, Smile Coffee Werks®, and for private label for leading retailers. These pods are compatible with the Keurig brewers right on your kitchen counter or in your office but are a whole lot more environmentally sustainable than traditional single-serve plastic and aluminum coffee pods.  SBW® pods are commercially compostable, carbon neutral and made from renewable plant-based materials, plus they boast a 12+ month shelf-life.

“Never has it been so easy and convenient to go green with coffee pods.  Single-serve coffee is hugely popular but creates burdensome waste to our environment. It’s now super simple for any consumer or private label brand to have a compostable pod and start being more environmentally sustainable.” says Michael Sands, Co-Founder of Smile Coffee Werks®.

SBW® pods are the real deal, and they will launch in three delicious flavors: High Country (a 100% Colombian RFA coffee), Werkday (their smoothest, easiest drinking, single-origin, medium roast coffee) and Woke Up (a 100% Arabica bean, bold, velvety and full-bodied dark roast).

There are no grounds to clean and no lid separation needed. Smile Coffee Werks® makes pods that are compatible with both Keurig brewers and Nespresso original style coffee / espresso brewers. They’re set to launch in 12, 24, and 72 count cartons for purchase at, and All coffee is deliciously and responsibly sourced through Rainforest Alliance.

SBW® pods are a much-needed answer to the environmental impact of single-use plastic waste from customer packaged goods. SBW® offers patented pods that are non-PLA, Compostable/ Biodegradable (certified), Carbon Neutral (verified), free from BPA/PFAS, and boast a 12-month+ shelf life.
