Are RealCups really safe?

The plastic in the K-Cup alternatives has been deemed safe, with no BPA intentionally added during the manufacturing process. The filter is made from a special U.S. patented material. The manufacturer is also working on improving the environmental impact of K-Cups and related products and on creating a recyclable version.

Do they contain any allergens?

No! None of the coffee or tea cups contain any allergens, including varieties from Martinson, Marley, and more.

Do RealCups contain any dairy products?

No, there are no milk or dairy ingredients in RealCup coffee and tea beverages.

Will RealCups work in a Keurig machine? What about another type of brewer?

Real Cups are compatible with all Keurig brewers—this can include machines by Breville, Cuisinart, Keurig, and Mr. Coffee. Not all models are K-Cup compatible, so be sure to browse the Keurig website to ensure compatibility before making a purchase. Examples of manufacturers that are not compatible include Nespresso and Keurig Vue, among others.
