Over A Cup Of Coffee, Moving Beans Is Finally Born!

Over A Cup Of Coffee, Moving Beans Is Finally Born!

February 08, 2017

This was quick! 

Gemma, Dan and Mike had a random catch-up talking about work, projects and world affairs. Over a cup of coffee, that is. And that coffee was done using their Nespresso machine. 

And this is when the conversation quickly deepened into sustainability, the terrible impact of the plastic/aluminium coffee pods onto the environment; and why not to do something tangible about it?

We did some market analysis, evaluated supply chains and warehouses and decided it is worth a shot. In a few years' time, this might have been a silly idea. But as for today, we felt we have done a tangible step forward in sustainability. 

Moving Beans was born today, and focus will be compostable Nespresso-compatible coffee pods. We will change a pod at a step, and we won't stop!

Join us on our journey!
