About Our Capsules
What's in them?
Coffee. Fresh. Roast and Ground. Nothing more, nothing less, and from only the best beans from the best farms.
What are they made of?
Our capsules are made using materials derived from sugar cane and sugar beet plants. They will fully decompose into compost under commercial composting conditions.
The capsules work with all Original Nespresso® Machines (unfortunately, they cannot be used in commercial and Vertuo Nespresso machines.)
Unlike ordinary plastic or aluminium coffee pods, once you've used them they can be thrown in your organic waste bin provided by your local council (you may want to contact your local council for further information). Once thrown in your organic waste they can be collected and composted in a commercial composting plant. It takes between 12-16 weeks for the capsules to fully decompose. As the pods degrade they won't release any harmful byproducts.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly, our capsules have been tested by TÜV Austria and have been granted the certification of TUV-Austria - OK Compost following the Standards for Compostability EN13432.
