Crush the Cup with Cameron’s Coffee

There is no getting around it, I love my coffee! 

I actually look forward to it as I am getting ready for bed.  Too much information….. and I little strange, I know ….. but I am telling you even the smell of it brewing can bring a smile to my face!

Let’s not forget that I also crave it, as it gives me the jolt of caffeine that I so desperately need to get my rear moving in the mornings!!! 😉

Single Serve Coffee Filters-Best coffee for Kuerig machines

I am always in a hurry during the work week, having a cup while getting ready, and then another once I have actually arrived at work.  Doesn’t it seem like we are always racing during the week, and the coffee is out of necessity….. not relaxation??

I love the weekends when I can brew my single serve cup, relaxing with a good book or just sitting in the peace and quiet before getting the day rolling.  I tend to still get up early, creeping around…..afraid of waking my family 😉 …..just so that I can start the day with a relaxing cup of coffee!  It helps ‘center’ my Saturday and Sunday!!  Know what I mean??

I didn’t used to drink coffee, preferring a Diet Mountain Dew….but somewhere along the line I grew up and graduated to the big girl drink!

A few years ago I splurged on one of the single serve coffee machines.  I hated paying the price, but a sale and a coupon softened the blow.  As I was the only one that drank coffee at the time, I didn’t like making a full pot only to have 1/2 of it end up down the drain.  The single serve solution was perfect for me. 

The only thing I didn’t like about the single serve concept is the plastic cups the coffee is being held and brewed in. It felt wasteful and irresponsible every time I threw one away.  Our landfill is probably riddled with these little cups!

I even started dreaming up ways to use them in craft projects!!

My brain could never conceive a proper idea though!  BUMMER!

Totally on accident I came across Cameron’s Coffee.

Seriously…. I grabbed the wrong box off the shelves and didn’t realize it until I was putting the groceries away.  I opened it up and was not only shocked to smell the fantastic coffee aroma (you never smell the coffee from the plastic containers), but it featured a soft-bottom filter instead of a plastic cup!

Once I made sure that it would actually fit in my Kuerig, I was anxious to give it a try {was not going to happen at 9:oo at night}!

I was not disappointed the next morning!  The intense french flavor is just that….INTENSE!   Dark…..Bold…..and if you can call coffee HEARTY I would do just that!

Crush the Cups-Cameron's Filtered Single Serve Coffee

To put it in a nutshell, Cameron’s Coffee not only offers me the convenience of single serve coffee, but by brewing it through a coffee filter I avoid the BPA and Polystyrene that is in the plastic cups, I am sending less plastic waste to our landfills, and I can enjoy a cup of coffee without the whole burnt-plastic aftertaste!

Did I tell you about the aroma when you open up the pouches the filtered pods are stored in?  Heavenly!!

I swear to God that sometimes the stars align……and you really do have to listen to the signs around you!  The day after I bought Cameron’s Coffee on accident I received an email asking if I wanted to participate in their “Crush the Cups” campaign.  See what I mean by the stars and signs?????

As I had already had two cups of their Intense French flavor that morning…..and LOVED IT…..I immediately said yes. 

I went out and bought a different flavor to verify my original opinion!  The Donut Shop blend is a little milder, but just as good!

To help promote their initiative I made a video crushing the existing plastic coffee cups that I still had on hand!  Please be kind as this is the first video I have ever attempted!! 😉
