Don Francisco's Coffee Family Reserve® coffee bags, single-serve coffee pods and espresso capsules, Café La Llave® espresso capsules and espresso-style single-serve coffee pods  

Yes, this national recycling program is brand-specific, which means you can only recycle the packaging of these particular brands, Don Francisco's Coffee Family Reserve® and Café La Llave®.

Shipments in the Coffee Bag and Pod Recycling Program must be at least 7 pounds to earn TerraCycle points (for reference, that’s about 300 pieces of waste or a little less than the weight of a gallon of milk).

No, you do not need to clean the packaging before sending it to TerraCycle. However, please remove as much of the remaining product as possible before shipping. UPS will not accept dripping packages, so make sure your items are dry prior to shipping.

Each coffee bag and pod you send in will earn you about 2.4 TerraCycle points and will be counted based on an average unit weight of 0.024 pounds.
