Steeped Coffee, the company revolutionizing the coffee industry with its fully compostable single-serve coffee bags, announced today it will be exhibiting at PLMA’s 2022 Private Label Trade Show (PMLA Show) for the first time ever. Held at the Donald E. Convention Center in Chicago from Nov. 13 – 15, the PLMA Show gives retailers the opportunity to explore the latest and greatest innovations from more than 1,400 exhibitors across the health and beauty, household goods, kitchenware and food and beverage categories.

Steeped Coffee is specialty coffee brewed like tea in a single-serve bag. The Steeped method delivers a simple cup of barista-approved coffee in minutes and is the only fully compostable brewing method that doesn’t require a machine, grinder or specialty brewing equipment to prepare premium delicious coffee. The Steeped Coffee Brewing Method has quickly become the gold standard in single-serve coffee. Each customizable pack contains craft-roasted, freshly ground pre-portioned coffee that is triple nitro-sealed to guarantee the perfect cup every time.

With the theme “Consumers Are Back in Charge,” the PLMA Show returns after two years of in-person pandemic cancellations with a renewed focus on consumer trends toward healthier and more sustainable products. As the leader within the premium sustainable single-serve movement, Steeped Coffee will showcase its game-changing Steeped Brewing Method on the trade room floor. The proprietary brewing method is changing the way people view single-serve coffee, delivering all of the benefits with none of the barriers — no pods, no plugs, no mess, just convenient delicious coffee.

Awarded ‘Best Portable Brew’ in Good Housekeeping’s 2022 Coffee Awards, ‘Best New Product’ at Expo East 2021 and ‘Best of Show’ at the 2021 KeHE Summer On Trends®, the company’s award-winning blends are available in select retailers nationwide as well as in co-branded Whole Foods Market Steeped Coffee blends.
