Late last week it was announced that Mike and Billie Joe's coffee company, Oakland Coffee, was making its way to retailers like Costco and Amazon. Mike was at the Oakland Costco to celebrate the event and met with fans. First, here's some info about the company.

"Oakland Coffee Works, owned by Green Day’s Mike Dirnt and Billie Joe Armstrong, is introducing the first coffee packaging made of certified compostable materials this week to four Bay Area Costco stores, on and on

“First there was diner coffee, then there was second wave coffee, like Starbucks, and then came the third wave with artisanal coffee – but this is the next step: organic, truly high-quality coffee that fairly supports the farmers who grow it and that comes in packaging made from fully compostable materials,” said Mike Dirnt, a long-time coffee enthusiast and bassist for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Green Day. “It’s no-compromise coffee in no-compromise packaging.” "

With the the new partnership between Oakland Coffee and San Francisco Bay Coffee Co. helping get the product into more retailers and more hands, it's nice to see that they'll soon be launching their single-serve pod, which will also be full compostable, in the coming weeks.

"The two coffee companies have bigger plans beyond this initial release. They have developed the first single-serve pods made from fully compostable materials and will be releasing them in the coming weeks. Oakland Coffee’s pod made from fully compostable materials will be available in stores and online at in coming weeks. San Francisco Bay Coffee’s pods made from fully compostable materials are expected to land on Costco shelves and in other retail and online stores in early 2017.

“We want consumers to have a choice that doesn’t require a compromise. We want to make great coffee that supports farmworkers, and makes sustainable packaging accessible to everyone, without pushing the added costs onto our consumers,” said Mike. “By riding the fourth wave with us, everyone can enjoy great, quality coffee that gives more people a choice towards a sustainable future.

Beginning today, Oakland Coffee’s Gardenista and Atomic Garden blend coffees will be available for purchase at Costco locations in the Bay Area, on,, and Lucky Supermarkets across the country (rolling out within the next week)."
