To celebrate our one-year anniversary, we are launching a new and exciting coffee portfolio. All of our Nespresso™-compatible coffee capsules are now fully biodegradable and compostable.
Over the past year, we have seen the growing impact of aluminium and plastic coffee capsules onto the environment, not least because of our own growing sales; so we have decided to take an active stance and research into sustainable coffee capsules.
This turned out to be really complex because – whilst biodegradable plastic is available –solutions were not able to seal the coffee hermetically which led to coffee going stale. With our scientific background, we thus went on a quest and discovered the best materials to ensure your coffee stays fresh, whilst also producing zero waste.
Our sustainable coffee capsules now deliver the best flavours from the finest coffee beans in the world with no environmental impact. We hope that you enjoy, and certainly stay in touch with us!

Originally published at the end of March 2020 in published in the journal Frontiers in Microbiology, a new strain of bacteria has been identified which is able to withstand harsh conditions, such as high temperatures or acidic environments, and is able to “eat” plastic. Yes, you read that correctly. This new strain of bacteria is able to feed on toxic plastic and, rather unusually, uses it as food to power the entire process.
Our third and final blog about our single origin coffees is on our new addition, the Indonesian Single Origin. As with the last two single origins, we did some long tasting sessions among the co-founders of Moving Beans and finally settled for the following description: cinnamon, nutmeg and chocolate. These are tastes we experienced at different times of consumption, i.e. the first impression, mid palate and the long-lasting taste.
Our second blog about our coffees is on our Kenyan Single Origin coffee. Again, we did some long tasting sessions among the co-founders of Moving Beans and finally settled for the following description: bright citrus / bergamot, lemongrass and rich berries. These are tastes we experienced at different times of consumption, i.e. the first impression, mid palate and the long-lasting taste.
