      There are only minor differences between brands. The coffee that impacts most severely is the coffee that is wasted. This might be because the coffee has gone stale or a big pot of coffee made and not all drunk.

      Because of this, those expensive coffee capsules are not as bad for the environment as many people think. Especially if you send the capsule for recycling afterwards.
