This is my first post, searched and did not see this available anywhere else.

Amazon [amazon.com] [amazon.com] has the San Francisco Bay Coffee OneCup for Keurig K-Cup Brewers, Organic Rainforest Blend, 80-Count marked down to as low as $27.55 ($0.34/cup) when you check out with Subcribe and Save. Without S&S, the price is still only $29.00 ($0.36 / cup).

Shipping is free with both options.

This is $4 less than the lowest previous price on Amazon for this organic, free trade blend and priced the same as a previous front page deal. Link


Or, if you prefer Green Mountain Nantucket Blend - Amazon Warehouse Deals has an 80-Count available for $33.16 - Link [amazon.com]

I assume the quantities are limited on the Nantucket Blend given it is available through warehouse deals.

NOTE: These are not "real" K-cups. They are a "green" cup with a solid ring, foil, and a bag of coffee that fit in a standard K-cup brewer. They brew very similarly to a standard K-cup, but if you share your brewer with a tea or cocoa drinker, you may want to rinse the K-cup holder after use.

They usually come as a box of 8-count sealed packs and an air-tight container to store the open cups. However, if you don't drink coffee daily, these may not stay fresh as long as a standard K-cup.

I recommend trying a smaller package of the SFBay 'k-cups'. They aren't sealed on the bottom, so they are best stored in a cooled place. We tried some from a local grocery store and weren't happy with the flavor or the lowered convenience.

I really like their FogLifter, so going to try this one. Never had any problem with freshness since they come 6(?) to a sealed pack.

And they also ship with plastic storage container for the opened bags (at least on the latest purchase of Fog Lifter and Breakfast Blend).

Hmm...I had this exact item saved in my cart for the next time I wanted to buy organic ones. However, I was just noticing today that the item description AND photo has changed to the non-organic one on this particular item now.

Just a note to folks to beware if you are looking for the organic ones, because this possibly isn't. It looks like the organic ones come in a different colored box with the USDA organic green seal right on the front [amazon.com] (see link).

This is for a different blend (Organic Rainforest - Fair Trade) that is regularly $33.00 and is now the same price as the other deal - $4.00 cheaper than it has ever been on Amazon.

If you look at the description (see picture) on Amazon when searching it still states that this product is Organic and the user submitted pictures for this product do have the green top. [amazon.com]

Fog Chaser is pretty good, they come in 10 8 pack sealed packages with a plastic container to hold the opened package.
They are organic and fair trade coffee.

Is Fog Chaser a BOLD coffee? I hate weak coffee.

We really like SF coffe and their cups are at least somewhat environment friendly. I'm waiting for the day when millions of used k-cups begin washing up on beaches. Fog chaser is good so we are giving this a try.

Just wanted to point out that some coffee can be assumed to be organic even without the "USDA Organic" seal. Here are some replies I received from Four Barrel and Sweet Maria's:

Four Barrel:
"Thank you for your question regarding coffee certifications. The
simple answer is that no, not all of our coffees are organic or shade
grown. The more appropriate answer is that it's much more complicated
than it appears.

The majority of our coffees are actually direct trade, which refers to
a direct transaction between us and the producer. Fair Trade is merely
a certification that a minimum of $1.26 per pound is paid to a
cooperative, which has a specific bureaucratic structure. Because we
deal primarily with single farms and small-holder grower associations,
our producers are not eligible for the Fair Trade certification. We
pay a lot of money for our coffee, and as I said, much of our coffee
is direct trade. Right now our green ranges between $3 to $6.80 a
pound, before freight. For our company and the way we source coffee
directly, Fair Trade is no longer relevant, as our buying practices
surpass Fair Trade across the board.

We buy organic coffee when we can, but it's not always available. For
example, in Kenya, coffee cannot be grown without fungicides like
copper spray. Without such treatment, a total crop failure would
occur, which means economic failure for the producer. In Ethiopia,
coffee is a native plant. It has adapted over eons to resist growing
antagonists, so fungicide, insecticide, etc. is unnecessary;
essentially, Ethiopian coffee is organic coffee by default, whether
it's certified or not. The certification is not always viable for
producers, who are often subsistence farmers. The certification
process is a seven-year commitment, and following certification,
producers must undergo yearly recertification... all at their own
expense, including housing provisions for certifying agents. This is a
great economic burden that most farmers simply cannot afford.

It's perfectly reasonable to be concerned about the certifications of
the coffee you are buying, but as I said, it's not as simple as it
appears. Four Barrel's buying practices are at the core quality
focused, and it is our belief that quality cannot occur, and more
importantly, reoccur, without substantial investment in quality
producing practices that are sustainable and ecologically sound, and
without our investment in the producers."

Sweet Maria's:
"Thanks for the note. In general Specialty Coffee of the arabica
variety comes from smallish traditional farms. And they are not
certified because the farmers have to pay for organic certification.
These are primarily the dry processed beans. Ethiopian coffee,
Yemens, almost all the Indonesians are essentially organics because
the farmers are too poor to afford pesticides.

More on our Farm Gate Direct Buying Program-
http://www.sweetmarias.com/farmgatecoffee.php

Kenya is a different story - while still not mega-agri-business style
farms, they use pesticides and other more western methods and so it
is rare to find an organic Kenyan.

In terms of how much pesticide reaches the cup - I think roasting,
grinding and brewing could eliminate almost all traces of pesticide.
Much more likely you get pesticide from fresh produce like beans or
tomatoes if those are not organic. But it is a real concern for the
health of the farm workers and the environment of the farms.
Specialty coffee in general is traditionally grown - so sparse use of
pesticides if any. It is the robusta in the mega-agri-business
coffee areas in Brazil and Vietnam and China that are more worrisome."
