Compostable Capsules and
Roast & Ground coffee
Fresh Coffee work with the Eden Project on bringing the best coffee to the market whilst being as environmentally friendly as possible. Fresh Coffee helped produce the Roast & Ground Eden Project range and Eden Project Compostable Coffee Capsule range available on this website.
The responsible disposal of used coffee capsules is a huge and growing problem for the environment. These ground-breaking capsules are a great solution as they break down into simple raw materials in a domestic compost heap, a landfill site or a council food waste bio-digester in a matter of weeks. It doesn't matter where you dispose of them, they will quickly breakdown into biomass, water & CO₂ with little or no environmental impact.
Our capsules provide a full oxygen barrier without the need for any additional packaging. Our capsules keep premium coffees in perfect condition until you want to use them. Our capsules will biodegrade back into simple raw materials in a domestic compost heap in 23 weeks at low temperature. They are constructed from PHA rather than PLA plastic, which some coffee capsules are made from but does not fully biodegrade. Our capsules offer superb extraction and guaranteed machine compatibility with all Original Nespresso compatible machines, not Vertuo systems. Unlike many of the compatible products and brands currently available on the market, the Eden Project home compostable capsules guarantee superb extraction with all brands, makes and models of Nespresso system machines.
We put Eden Project Compostable Capsules, green 'corn-starch' industrial capsules and a polypropylene capsule in plastic fruit netting in a domestic compost heap to see what happened.
Each capsule was subjected to the same conditions in the same part of the compost heap, we simply put the bag in the top of the compost heap and covered with garden and kitchen food waste. Our capsules composted in 26 weeks.
After 13 weeks we did the same thing again so we could see the end result without disturbing the original 26 week test bag. The compost heap was emptied on 2 February 2019, 26 weeks after starting the test.
Fresh Coffee and Eden Project present Roast & Ground coffee and Nespresso Compatible Capsules.
