For this morning, an extended version of Sunday Morning Coffee Quotes. Barrie House Coffee presents an innovative new capsule for your Keurig coffee maker. I don’t know about you, but a wee 6 oz. cup is what I am served in a restaurant that is trying to cut corners. A full pail of coffee is what I am served by friends and family who enjoy my company and want to have me sit and stay for the entire time it will take me to finish it. Most Kcups are designed to be brewed on the 8 oz. setting. Putting 12 oz. of coffee through one results in something that resembles old dish water, both in looks and taste. The clever folks over at Barrie House have achieved this by putting 13 grams of coffee in each Kcup – that’s 3-4 more oz. than most. Goose’s personal favourite right now is the Sumatra Kopi Blend. His morning cup of coffee no longer takes two capsules to really wake him up.
Each variety comes with a number, indicating the relative strength. Everything from the Sumatra and House Blend (both 8’s), Pumpkin Spice Pie, French Vanilla, and Hazelnut (6’s), to the more subtle Breakfast Blend (5) or even the light Decaf (a mere 3). You can check out the full line at ECS Coffee.
But there’s even more that sets the Barrie House Kcups apart from the competition: they are both recyclable and compostable. The little tab on the top of the cup lets you easily remove the foil wrapper, exposing the coffee inside. Pull off the foil on the bottom of the cup, and you can pull out the plastic filter frame and toss it, the foil top and bottom, and the cup into the recycling bin. Jette the coffee grounds and the paper filter into the compost and away you go.
