Kienna Coffee, a Canadian coffee roaster, is rolling out an adapter for Keurig brewers that enables use of its biodegradable pods in the single-cup machines.
Keurig users pinch the pod to compress its sides and place it inside the KiennaKUP adapter basket and close the lid. They then insert the adapter into the Keurig brewer as they would a K-Cup. The machine’s spray nozzle pierces the pod’s dome. When the user presses the “brew” button, the machine instantly forces preheated water through the pod, brewing a cup of coffee. The reusable adapter is dishwasher safe and BPA free. Kienna Coffee has more than 20 varieties of coffee pods, available in 18- or 50-count packs.
