I already know it's a lot of trouble to remove them for composting, but does anyone know if the paper filters inside the K-pods are actually biodegradable? We no longer use the old fashioned coffee maker so these pods are all I have access to and I hate to waste them. I also recycle the plastic part after I clean the coffee out.

According to the Keurig site, Is there a filter in the pods? What is it made of?

All of our coffee and tea pods contain filters. Filters are made with abaca fiber, which is the same material that is typically used in tea bags and are considered unbleached.

Since Abaca fiber is a natrual plant material, it should be biodegradable.
