Let me introduce you to Urban Brew!
Welcome - I'm Toby, the founder of Urban Brew!
You’re now part of an amazing coffee loving community! Are you ready to let us blow your mind with our awesome coffee?
I'd love for you to watch this video I made so you can get to know us a bit better!
We’ll get to the good stuff (coffee) soon, but let’s start with some facts about pods. I’ve been in the pod game for many years now it's grown rapidly. People are looking for the most convenient way to enjoy everyday products, and pods definitely take the cake for being convenient and also affordable when it comes to coffee. The quality of coffee pods is getting amazing, so amazing that many people are saying bye-bye to their barista and becoming their own!
But sadly, this huge consumption of coffee pods comes with the downfall of pods having a negative contribution to the environment. There are roughly 3 million pods that go into landfill daily, which is unfathomable – humans are serious coffee addicts! Majority of these pods are aluminium, with plastic pods following closely behind.
The main issue with aluminium is that they are hard to recycle and they take up to 500 years to break down, which is way beyond our lifetime! There are recycling programs that suppliers offer that involve returning the pods to them to be recycled, but not enough people are taking advantage of this. Unfortunately doing the right thing doesn’t outweigh convenience for many people.
We get that life is busy and everyone is looking for the most convenient way to do things so that we can fit more into our days, which is where our coffee pods come in. Using biodegradable pods is the best solution, as it means that you can throw your used pods into the normal bin to go into landfill and break down in roughly 2 years, as opposed to 500 years. For those who don’t mind a bit of extra work, you also have the option to recycle them.
If you want to read more about our biodegradable pods, check out this blog here.
Alright, let’s move on to talk about what options we offer when it comes to ordering our pods. You can order as you need with no minimum purchase, or if you’re a coffee addict who wants big savings and to get the most convenience, you can sign up for a subscription and have quality coffee delivered to your door every month without having to think about it!
On top of this, we offer free shipping on all orders (excluding non-metro areas), and orders of 5+ packs are eligible to purchase one of our famous little creations – the Cuppa Choc (a wafer cup hand coated in chocolate). These babies are best enjoyed in place of your mug with your usual coffee (except long blacks, it will melt straight through) or you can get creative and make an affogato or another dessert in it!
Thanks again for joining our coffee loving community - I’m sure you’re going to have some great fun with us!
