Keurig Compatible Cups
Our coffee pods are recyclable, so you can help the environment with every cup of coffee you have. When you use our recyclable coffee pods, follow these steps after brewing:
1. Allow the pod to cool.
2. Remove the foil lid and recycle it with aluminum.
3. Empty the used coffee grounds and use them as compost.
4. Recycle the plastic cup and filter with other recyclable plastics.
We recommend only using a coffee pods once to get the maximum taste in your cup of coffee. You can use bolder brews more than once, but the taste won't be the same as it was in your first cup, since the coffee will be over-extracted. Since we use recyclable coffee pods, you don't need to feel guilty about only using one pod per cup of coffee and getting the best roast every time.
For the best results, stick to one pod per cup of coffee. Remember, if you're running low, it's easy to restock with our coffee pods, since we offer free shipping and convenient quantities — you don't have to worry about running out of your favorite roast.
If you need caffeine to wake you up in the morning or to get through the rest of your day, you'll want to know how much caffeine is in your coffee pods. The amount of caffeine in a coffee pods pod depends on a number of factors, including the type of roast you pick, though roast isn't the main factor that determines caffeine content.
While light roasts will often have a bit more caffeine than darker roasts, it also depends on the weight and volume of the coffee beans, since more coffee means more caffeine. Different varieties of coffee beans also have varying percentages of caffeine.
On average, Keurig Coffee pods have anywhere between 75 and 150mg of caffeine. For reference, your standard, eight-ounce brewed coffee should have around 100mg of caffeine. If you have strong reactions to caffeine or consume other caffeine-containing things throughout the day, like chocolate or soda, you may want to consider darker roasts and coffee pods options with less caffeine. The average person, though, can have anywhere between 400 and 600mg of caffeine in a day and not feel the possible negative effects, like headaches or fatigue.
Any serious coffee drinker should know the differences between light and dark roasts. As you order coffee pods online, you'll notice a few different roast options. The differences between those are as follows:
Light Roast: If you prefer a lighter body to your coffee or delicate, fruity tastes with a bit more acidity, light roast coffee pods are for you. The resulting roast is more invigorating, perfect for breakfast blends that you drink in the morning.
Dark Roast: If you want bitterness or boldness in your coffee with a bit less of the bean's original tastes, try a dark roast. The characteristic bold or sweet notes are ideal for coffee drinkers that like a rich cup in the morning or often drink coffee with dessert.
You'll also find medium roast coffee pods, which creates a richer and darker brew that's ideal if you aren't sure if you'd enjoy a dark or light roast coffee pods. Medium brew combines the best of both options with a resulting cup of coffee that maintains characteristics of the coffee bean with a bit of added depth that's great for any time of day.
Considering our organic dark roast coffee pods? You may be wondering about the benefits of organic coffee and if choosing organic over traditional roasts is right for you. When you brew an organic cup of coffee, you:
Get coffee that's almost entirely free of chemicals, including synthetic hormones, pesticides, and other fertilizers.
Drink natural compounds that are good for reducing stress, improving your mood, and boosting your immune system and metabolism.
Support coffee farms that use eco-friendly practices, like using recyclable materials or donating proceeds to environmental efforts.

Nespresso Compatible Pods
Everyone has their preferences and tastes for coffee. We don't believe in a one-size-fits-all product. We've created a range of Nespresso Pod strengths, so you can find your favorite one. We offer flavors worth raving about with the strength to get you up and out the door on your way to a productive day. To satisfy every espresso lover, we offer:
These Nespresso-compatible pods offer a taste that will wake you up in the morning without keeping you up all night long. The creamy tones of vanilla and caramel offer a subtle sweetness, while the unmistakable caffeine undertone will get you ready to get out the door.
Stronger pods give a wake-up call to a more leisurely day. A light dash of citrus with a nutty base will leave you with a tangy experience from start to finish with every sip.
For the days you need that extra kick, we've got the strongest pods for you. It's bold without being bitter, combining spicy and sweet subtleties in a way that will have you reaching for that next taste, time after time.
Their intense, full-bodied taste makes the organic Nespresso-compatible capsules a go-to for espresso lovers. Their smoky taste will assure you that they're not just organic by name but also by nature. Plus, you get to enjoy your espresso, knowing you took an extra step toward choosing sustainable beans.
If you have trouble choosing between all these delicious options, the variety pack will give you the choices you need. With a mixture of different pods, you can sample a little of everything and choose your favorite. Or pick your preference based on what kind of day you have ahead of you. There's the right espresso in here for every mood.
With options tailored to every preference and strength, it's only a matter of time before you discover that Real Good Coffee Co is where you should purchase your Nespresso pods.
Nespresso OriginalLine machines replicate the espresso-making process by pressing hot water through holes in the pod with great speed and pressure. By doing so, you get your espresso quickly, and you get a strong taste that's as close as you can get to pure, professional-grade espresso.
Instead of laboring over an expensive espresso machine for several minutes, you drop in a pod and get fresh espresso in only a few seconds.
Some Nespresso users say they reuse their pods to get some extra life out of their capsules. However, the second cup will make noticeably weaker espresso than the first. The best part about espresso is its concentration and strength, so making a diluted cup will diminish the experience of enjoying espresso.
However, if you use your espresso to make lattes or other caffeinated beverages, the steamed milk and flavoring could cover the absence of strong espresso. But, if you enjoy the fresh taste of strong espresso alone, a cup made from a second-use pod will likely disappoint.
Yes, Nespresso pods offer a stronger taste than regular coffee because they use a lower ratio of coffee to water. The Nespresso machine gives you as close as you can get to true espresso with a capsule-based single-serve machine.
Nespresso commits itself to preserving the environment with its Ecolaboration program. At Real Good Coffee Co, we have a passion for taking the eco-friendly approach, too.
Since we're so passionate about keeping our planet green, we've designed all of our Nespresso pod products with 100% recyclable packaging.
All you need to do is:
Give your pod time to cool.
Remove the aluminum foil top and place it in the recycling bin.
Compost the spent coffee grounds.
Wash out remaining grounds and toss the recyclable plastic container in the recycling bin, too.
With a Nespresso machine in your home, you bring the local café to your kitchen. There are endless ways you can create and customize beverages with your espresso.
Here are a few examples of some espresso-based drinks you can enjoy with the help of your Nespresso machine:
Latte, macchiato, and cappuccino. The only difference between these café favorites is the foam to milk ratio. Add steamed milk and experiment with how much foam you like on top. To make a mocha, add chocolate. To give your beverage a hint of sweetness, add a touch of simple sugar. The variations of these drinks range from lavender lattes to toffee macchiatos, so get creative with your flavor combinations.
Americano. Craving a cup of regular coffee? Simply add water to your espresso, and you've got yourself an Americano.
Affogato. Got a sweet tooth? Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to your mug, pour over your espresso, and enjoy a delicious guilty pleasure.

We want you to be 100% satisfied with your purchase. Items can be returned or exchanged within 30 days of delivery.
Whole Bean Coffee
Whole bean coffee is the product made from roasting coffee beans. Coffee companies use the process of roasting to turn the coffee cherry plucked from the plant into the bean you can buy in the store. Before roasting, the coffee plant is a green color and doesn't smell anything like the coffee you know and love.
You can buy roasted beans whole, or you can buy them pre-ground in the size your coffee brewing method requires. Real Good Coffee Co chooses to sell whole coffee beans because we want to offer products that give you the freshest cup of coffee possible. When you grind the beans right before you brew your coffee, you can experience the freshest aromas and tastes whole bean coffee has to offer.
When you buy coffee beans online as whole beans, you're guaranteeing extra freshness that pre-ground coffee cannot deliver.
We know firsthand that no two coffee drinkers enjoy coffee the same way. That's why we offer four options to cover a variety of preferences. Whether you love your coffee light with bright notes or dark with more robust notes, we have the perfect blend for you. No matter what type of coffee you enjoy, our whole bean coffee bags provide the same satisfying experience for everyone who loves to grind their own beans and reap the invigorating results of their efforts.
We’re proud to sell whole bean coffee in 2-pound bags in a variety of blends that are sure to appeal to any taste profile. To our valued customers, we offer:
Breakfast Blend coffee beans. This is our light roast with a brisk citrus taste and smooth, aromatic milk chocolate and cream notes. Donut Shop coffee beans.This medium roast option has a bold taste with a natural sweetness made from 100% Arabica beans from South and Central America.French Roast coffee beans. Our dark roast choice offers extra bold coffee taste with a subtle sweet finish for those looking for powerful depth.Organic Dark coffee beans. This is another dark roast selection featuring a single-origin Sumatra with notes of South Asian spices for a roast you won't soon forget — all prepared organically for that extra earth-loving addition.
Which one should you choose? The answer is simple — you can’t go wrong with any of the whole bean coffees we’ll deliver right to your doorstep. For convenient delivery that doesn't sacrifice coffee quality, choose any Real Good Coffee Co blend.
Choosing whole bean coffee gives you more options when it comes to getting the grind size you need. Different coffee brewing methods require different sizes and textures for the grounds. For example, a French press will use a coarse grind compared to the medium grind used in a traditional brewing pot.
To use whole beans, you get to perform the grinding process yourself. You can use a manual or electric grinder depending on how precise and quick you want your grounds ready. The quality of your grinder can impact the taste of the coffee once you brew it.
In our opinion? Absolutely. We wouldn't sell whole bean coffee if we didn't think it was worth it for our customers' experience. If you're willing to put in a bit of extra effort in your coffee-making process, we believe the quality of the brew you experience will speak for itself.
Grinding your own beans isn't for everyone, and that's okay. Some prefer the convenience of pre-ground coffee or single-serve machines. Quick and easy coffee is a helpful option that many count on daily. That's why we offer Nespresso pods and coffee pods for those who want to experience the roasts of Real Good Coffee Co with the ease of a single-serve machine.
Depends on who you ask. Some say if you wait 10 minutes to use your ground beans, you've wasted your time in grinding at all. But we get it. Not everyone can schedule their lives around making a pristine cup of coffee at 7 a.m. Some days, you're late for work, you have a report to finish, and the kids aren't even dressed for school yet.
While we believe the freshest cup of coffee comes from beans ground right before use, grinding the night before is not a crime. It's still weeks, if not months, fresher than store-bought pre-ground coffee.
Whole bean coffee is a type of coffee bean you can buy — the type we offer. Though "whole bean coffee" and "coffee beans" usually refer to the same product, the term "coffee beans" is less specific. If you search for coffee beans, you may see both whole bean and pre-ground options in your results.
Two pounds of coffee will last different lengths of time depending on:
How you prepare your coffee
How often you drink coffee
How many coffee drinkers are using the coffee
How finely you grind your coffee
How much coffee you pour into your cup at a time
Your coffee bean usage will be uniquely tailored to your coffee consumption. The best way to find out how long a 2-pound bag lasts is to order a bag and test it out. If you run out quickly, you can order another with our free shipping and adjust your future orders from there.
If you love whole bean coffee, there’s no reason for you to inconvenience yourself by going to a store to buy your preferred blend. Instead, you can simply order whole bean coffee online from Real Good Coffee Co. By offering our coffee online, we get the chance to serve customers all across the country — in addition to those in our neighborhood.
When deciding where to buy whole bean coffee, it's easy to default to the big brand names everyone knows. It's even easier to purchase pre-ground coffee. Why add an extra step to your already hectic routine? While pre-ground coffee makes your morning routine convenient, some say grinding your own whole bean coffee makes a world of difference for a satisfying coffee experience — and we agree.
Freshly ground coffee beans unlock a layer of taste you simply don't get with pre-ground coffee. Even if the pre-ground coffee came from really good coffee beans, the freshness and taste begin to dissipate before the grounds ever cross your front door.
The oils in coffee give the grounds their irresistible aroma and mouthwatering taste. The process of grinding coffee beans frees these oils, but it also starts the clock for when the beans grow stale. Grinding your beans moments before you use them gives you the freshest cup of coffee possible. And that's why we choose to offer whole bean coffee.
When you buy coffee from Real Good Coffee Co, you get a cup that is:

Can coffee pods be recycled? Yes! Thankfully, many coffee pods are recyclable in the traditional sense, meaning they can be recycled in the same manner as other plastics and metals. Even some coffee pods that are labeled non-recyclable can be responsibly recycled in both traditional and non-traditional ways. Most coffee pods contain four materials: plastic, aluminum, a paper filter and organic material in the form of coffee grounds. All four materials can generally be separated, sorted and recycled responsibly.
If you choose not to recycle these pods on your own, there are still two other methods of recycling available to you. For those who can't recycle certain plastics or metals in their counties or towns, online resources can help you locate the recycling centers closest to you. There are also many companies, including coffee pod manufacturers themselves, to whom you can mail in your used coffee pods so that they can recycle them for you.
Although these products can be recycled, they must be disposed of properly. One of the problems that arises is that some users will either throw the coffee pods in the trash without attempting to recycle it or throw the entire pod into the recycling bin without sorting it properly. Both of these approaches cause problems, potentially resulting in the pod not being recycled at all. Thankfully, you can easily prevent this issue by learning how to recycle your coffee pods and Nespresso pods properly and responsibly.
Cool It! After you've finished brewing, allow the pod to cool completely before you touch it.
Peel It! Take the pod out and remove the foil lid. This lid can be thrown into your aluminum recyclable bin without any extra steps.
Empty It! Get all of the used coffee grounds out of the pod. While you could scoop these out over the sink or trash can, we suggest gathering the grounds together and recycling them into your compost.
Recycle It! Throw our plastic filter and pod into your recyclable plastic bin. Not only are you fueled up and ready to go, but you've also helped save the planet all before lunch!
Keep in mind, no matter which coffee pods or coffee pod you use, you must always abide by your local recycling and composting guidelines. Just as throwing recyclables into the trash is irresponsible, placing incorrect items in your recycling bins is also a bad idea. If you're interested in making sure your coffee pods are recycled and put to good use, why not use them around your own home? Believe it or not, there are dozens of fun and functional ways you can repurpose used coffee pods.
Responsible recycling is a great household habit to have, and with the support of your town's recycling centers and coffee pod manufacturers, thousands upon thousands of these coffee pods components can be recycled into other products without ever getting trapped in a landfill. But what do you do if your area lacks the resources necessary to recycle these items properly? Instead of dumping your pods in the trash, we suggest you find creative ways to use the empty coffee pods and Nespresso pods at home.
At Real Good Coffee Co., we care deeply for our planet — after all, it's the wonders of nature that provide us with the delicious coffee beans that become our brew. That's why we make sure that every single-serve coffee pod that we produce is made with 100 percent recyclable materials. If you're looking for a new way to recycle or if you have coffee pods that cannot be traditionally recycled, there are still plenty of ways to reuse them. Here are some of our favorite:
Create a Bath Bomb
You use your coffee to wake up and feel revitalized — let the coffee pod itself help you relax and recharge. It's super easy to create a mold for a bath bombusing coffee pods. This DIY trick can create weeks' worth of bath bombs in a few minutes. First, if your coffee pods has a filter, make sure you remove it. Then, add all of the bath bomb ingredients into the empty cup and let them set overnight. Remove the mix from the pod, and it's ready for bath time!
Make Frozen Coffee Pod Treats
Coffee pods are perfect tools for making frozen treats within hours. Of course, the coolest concoction to make is ice cubes made from your leftover fresh coffee. You can also put juice into a coffee pods with a popsicle stick and make delightful popsicles for your family. Looking to really get creative in the kitchen?

Easy Holders for Sorting Change

Grab your coffee pods and let them help you sort. Keep a coffee pods in the laundry room and near wherever you place your keys so you can easily remove all loose pocket change and prevent it from building up in one area. Sorting coins is also a fun and educational activity for young children to help you with.

Whether you're using them in your outdoor entertaining area, in your child's bedroom or even just for the holiday season, string lights are fantastic and festive additions you can use many places in or around your home. Simply cut a hole in the bottom of your coffee pods and string the lights through. You can make plenty of other cool decorations for any time of the year with additional coffee pods, such as a minimalist wreath, advent calendar or ornaments.
Recycling Coffee Pods as Seed Starters
What better way to recycle your coffee pods than than by using them out in your garden? You can quickly turn a coffee pod into a seed starter. Add a base layer of garden soil into the cup followed by the seeds of your choice. Then, top the cup off with more soil and plant it in your garden. Be sure to water these cups regularly and give them adequate sunlight. Of course, you can also add coffee grounds to your soil too, as they make great fertilizer and mulch.
Using Coffee Pods for Office Organization
An organized office is an efficient office. Take a look around your desk and discover how many areas are cluttered with miscellaneous supplies. Although coffee pods might not make for great pen holders, they can still contain the small items that are just as necessary. Dedicate one cup for push pins or tacks and another cup for paperclips. These are also great resources for a creative's at-home office, as they can store craft items like safety pins, sequins, beads, buttons and more.
Coffee Pods Crafts Ideas
Adults aren't the only ones who can reuse coffee pods for their daily activities. These small pods make great tools for children's crafts and are especially effective at curbing messes. For instance, you can use a dozen small coffee pods for different paint colors without wasting or spilling bottles of paint. You can also fill them with glue, glitter or other messy substances to keep them contained.
Use Coffee Pods for Meals
While you may not want to use a coffee pods as a precise method of measurement while cooking or preparing food, having a single-serve cup available is quite handy. Fill these empty cups with ketchup, mustard or other condiments when you serve foods like fries or chicken nuggets. These are especially useful when portioning out sauces for children's meals.
Not sure if you want to keep so many empty coffee pods around your home? You can also collect them and donate them to facilities that can recycle them in creative ways. Schools, art centers and science centers may find uses for coffee pods. Ask around to friends and family to discover who might need these great recyclable tools. If your office has a machine that uses coffee pods, you could also suggest that your coworkers place them in a dedicated box to be recycled periodically.
Recycling coffee pods doesn't need to be difficult, inconvenient or costly. With a minimal amount of effort and imagination, you can discover unlimited ways to reuse these pods. It doesn't matter how you use them, as long as it's safe, environmentally responsible and prevents them from sitting in a landfill.
