Compostable Coffee Pods

The Green UMW working group is pleased to announce the availability of an alternative to plastic K-Cups®, right here on campus!

The UMW Bookstore offers Boyd’s Coffee compostable pods, which will work in most brewers that accept K-Cup® portion packs, excluding Keurig® 2.0 brewers. With a bio-based filter and a ring made of coffee chaff, Boyd’s pods provide a sustainable  single-serve caffeine solution that supports UMW’s goal of reducing plastic waste.

Mix and match by purchasing individual pods, or order a single blend by the case. (When purchasing a case, please allow 5 business days between order and delivery to the Bookstore.)

Departmental and Faculty Staff discounts apply!

Price per case (80 pods per case): 

  • 20% Departmental Discount: $68.78
  • 10% Fac/Staff Discount: $77.38

Please contact the University Bookstore for pricing on individual pods or to place an order for a case.

Your interest in and efforts towards reducing single use plastics in accordance with Executive Order 77 are appreciated. The switch to compostable pods will go a long way to reaching our collective goal!

Questions about Executive Order 77 may be directed to GreenUMW@umw.edu.
