Specialty Coffee Becomes More Accessible as Single-Serve Steeped Coffee Brewing Method has been Embraced by Over 300 Top Roaster Brands

[New Orleans, October 1, 2021] – Steeped Coffeea Certified B Corp, is showcasing the company’s breakthrough single-serve technology and newest award-winning coffee blend at the 2021 Specialty Coffee Expo in New Orleans.

Brewed similar to tea, these fully certified compostable Steeped Packs require no machines or brewing equipment, and are quickly becoming the sustainable standard in single-serve coffee.

Coffee Expo - Steeped Coffee At Work

Steeped makes its return to the Specialty Coffee Expo after winning the ‘Best New Product’ award for its sustainable packaging and innovative brewing method. Steeped Coffee has also won ‘Best of Show’ honors for all categories at the KeHE Summer On Trends® Show for specialty products, and most recently received the NEXTY Award for ‘Best New Product’ in Tea and Coffee at the Natural Products Expo™. 

“We are excited to be back at the Specialty Coffee Expo in-person to share this Steeped Coffee Brewing Method movement with attendees,” said Josh Wilbur, Founder and CEO, Steeped Coffee. “Since we’ve been combining the convenience of single-serve brewing together with the quality of specialty coffee, it's been exciting to see significant adoption from top roasters and brands across the country who are also prioritizing sustainability.”

Specialty Coffee Association Expo - Award-Winning Debut

This year, Steeped is introducing its acclaimed Breakwater Blend at this year’s expo. Steeped’s newest French Roast blend is made from 100% specialty grade coffee that is ethically sourced with Fair Trade and USDA Organic Certifications from the Tolima region of Columbia. The coffee is slowly craft roasted over a sustainable oak wood fire, bringing out notes of caramelized sugar and smooth smoke to create a silky-bodied experience for those who prefer a quality darker roast. 

For 30 years, the Specialty Coffee Expo has set the industry standard as coffee professionals’ one-stop-shop for everything they need. Hosted by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA), a trade organizationof coffeeprofessionals from around the world, the Specialty Coffee Expo is the largest coffee event in North America, historically attracting more than 13,000 attendees and hundreds of vendors from over 75 countries each year. 

“Steeped doesn’t take its barista-approved standards lightly and we’ve worked closely with industry experts to validate every aspect of the Steeped Brewing Method, from freshness and quality to extraction and shelf life. Most importantly, we deliver consistent taste, bringing the most authentic specialty coffee experience directly to single-serve coffee lovers,” said Wilbur. “Along with our top Roaster partners, we are proud to make quality coffee accessible to more people with a simple brewing method that helps reduce our lasting impact on the planet.”
