Portland Roasting Coffee, a Portland, Ore. specialty coffee roaster, has launched its first line of single-serve coffee cups.
"Today's on-the-go, busy lifestyle begs for convenience products, which is why single-serve coffee has seen remarkable growth in recent years," said founder and managing partner Mark Stell. "While consumers demand convenience, they don't want to sacrifice quality.”
"Our single-serve cup contains more coffee than the average cup currently available, resulting in a stronger, more flavorful cup of coffee," said Nathanael May, director of coffee for Portland Roasting.
Portland Roasting's single-serve cups are fully recyclable, and the company is working on developing a fully biodegradable version.
"Given the amount of waste that single-serve cups produce, it was important to us that there was a sustainable packaging solution in sight before we entered the market," said Stell. "While our current cups can be recycled, we've taken the next step to create a fully biodegradable solution."
Eight varieties are available, including: Goose Hollow, Morning Blend, Organic French, Organic House, Organic Tanager's Song, Portland House, French Roast and Vienna Decaf.
