ZERO WASTE COFFEE
If you’re like most Americans, your morning starts with brewing coffee at home. However, your cup probably comes with its fair share of negative environmental impacts.
There are several ways to brew a zero-waste coffee cup and reduce the negative environmental impacts.
All it takes is just a few changes!
BREW ZERO WASTE COFFEE
Pour over is a great way to brew a single cup of drip coffee. For a zero waste brew, use a reusable coffee filter made of cotton with a ceramic drip cone or glass Chemex.
Using a french press is one of the most efficient ways to brew your zero waste coffee. Simply add grounds and boiling water and press down to filter.

Espresso machines are also generally low in waste as you just have to add grounds to the machine, no filters or other single-use products required.
Percolators are more of an old-fashioned, but still loved, brewing appliance. They come in electric, stovetop, and even campfire varieties, but all brew in similar ways.
If you like a more concentrated cup of coffee, a moka pot may be the right choice for you. Made of stainless steel, they require nothing but water and coffee grounds to brew.
