Everybody talks about supporting sustainability. Until they want a convenient cup of coffee anyway.
Tim Hortons coffee cups are not recyclable. Machines like Keurig, Nespresso, and to a large extent Tassimo, are proliferating like mad, and use single serving cups that are not recyclable.
We want a convenient cup of coffee, but it’s far simpler to pop in a K-Cup and throw it away later than to take the time to brew it ourselves. Do as I say, not as I do.
I still make my espresso in a little pot that sits on the stove. Fill the filter with ground coffee, wait a few minutes, and I have a delicious cup of coffee and some compost. Takes all of five minutes, and it will always taste better too.
