Question from Pia
are coffee pods safe to use?
also what is the safest coffee maker ?
Most pods are made of plastic and heating plastic increases leaching of chemicals. You can read more here about plastic toxicity. There are some pods now that claim to be plastic-free and are made of plant-based “biomaterials”. These are better for the environment and probably less toxic than plastic but we really don’t know exactly what is in them. Using loose, organic beans is a safer bet.
