About Our Capsules

Moving Beans Sustainable & Biodegradable Coffee Pods

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. Although we are working on a solution for that - stay tuned...)

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. We recommend throwing them out with your organic waste so that they can be composted in a commercial composting plant so that the capsules decompose much more quickly. It takes between 12-16 weeks for the capsules to fully decompose. Composting at home is perfectly safe, and the pods won't release any harmful byproducts as they degrade, bit it will take longer because the right composting conditions - temperature, humidity, time of the year, location of your compost heap, amount of oxygen, amongst many other factors - influence the process.

TUV Austria OK compost certification - Moving Beans Coffee

Finally, and perhaps most importantly, our capsules have been tested by TUV Austria and has been granted the certification of TUV-Austria - OK Compost and the Standards for Compostability EN13432.
