We all know CO2 is a major contributor to global warming, and the roasting process can produce an enormous amount of CO2 over the course of a year. One of Jumping Bean Coffee’s® founding pillars is a focus on environmental responsibility, so we not only offer the best blends & exotic single origin coffees available, but we also offer them all in our unique ECO2Roast® format.

That’s right, we have modified our roasting process to exact the same rich taste from our premium coffee, while producing 85% less CO2 emissions. This means that for every 1lb. (454 g) of ECO2Roast coffee we produce, you save the world about 1lb of carbon waste. In practical terms, this carbon footprint reduction is equivalent to a 60 watt light bulb burning 24 hours a day for 17 days straight. On a larger scale, the carbon footprint reduction from 300,000 pounds of ECO2Roast coffee is equivalent to taking roughly 3,000 cars off the road.

Couple that with our focus on Fair Trade and organic coffees wherever possible, and you have a truly guilt-free cup of coffee!

100% Compostable Pods

Jumping Bean Coffee® is proud to be the first independently owned Canadian coffee company to implement the brand new PürPod100® compostable pod technology (Keurig 2.0-compatible).

Made entirely from plant-based materials and by-products of the coffee roasting process, our pods are now BPI-certified as 100% compostable.

Jumping Bean delayed launching single serve pods due to the fundamental problem of excessive plastic waste.

After extensive research Jumping Bean is able to proudly offer a sustainable solution via PURPOD 100% compostable technology.

When we first got into the single serve coffee pod game, some people asked how a company renowned for its eco-friendly innovation could start buying in to a technology as wasteful and destructive as Keurig® machines. We had no fundamental problem with the idea of single serve, but the method of delivery just did not fit our core values of reducing waste and protecting our ecosystem. With our commitment to Fair Trade Organic and our proprietary Eco2Roast technology already online, only a fully compostable coffee product would suffice. Enter the coffee chaff ring.

How does this technology work? Traditional K-Cups® have long used a plastic body, plastic ring, and foil or paper top. If people wanted to recycle the various elements of each pod, they had to peel off the paper for paper recycling, detach the ring and body for plastic recycling, and dump the coffee grounds into the compost bin. All components of the new PURPOD technology are 100% compostable.
