Biodegradable coffee pods

If you're one of the growing households in Australia enjoying the convenience of a Nespresso® coffee machine at home, but worried about the ethical and environmental impact of coffee capsules, now you can make an espresso, cappucino or latte in your machine that is not only Fairtrade and organic, but also boasts a completely biodegradable capsule.

Organic and Fairtrade Arabica coffee

The pure Arabica coffee in these Inca Soave pods is grown in the foothills of Peru and roasted according to Italian traditions, producing a full-bodied espresso characterised by delicate fruity and gentle full-flavoured notes. Certified Fairtrade and organic, it's for those who want to enjoy a smooth, aromatic espresso at home, with a clear conscience.

NOTE: Please press the right button! These are Espresso capsules. Use only Espresso capsules with the Espresso button and Lungo capsules with the Long-serve button.

'Italian Barista' style

Thanks to its patented design and extraction technology, the capsule draws out the quintessential perfection of the highest quality coffees. It is the only capsule on the market that is entirely closed allowing an extraction under high pressure, reproducing the 'Italian Barista' style of extraction. Other capsules do not operate under pressure and essentially perform in the same manner as filter coffee

Want to make your coffee like a professional barista?

When you order a coffee that has milk, the barista will heat the milk and then combine the milk with a short espresso, depending on the style of coffee you prefer. Their skill lies in creating the perfect combination of milk and espresso coffee. We recommend that when creating your at home experience, that you do the same. First heat your milk and then use the 'short serve' button to add your coffee. If you prefer a long black style of coffee, we suggest either selecting a variant that is specifically designed for a Lungo 110ml serve or using the Ristretto/Espresso coffees with a short button and then topping up the serve with hot water.

Biodegradable: dispose of the capsule in your green waste bin

Not only that, the capsules themselves are so green you could grow a plant in them. To comply with the stringent EN13432 standard, they are made primarily from vegetable fibre and starch and degrade within 180 days in industrial composting. Once used, you can simply dispose of the capsule in your green waste bin, eliminating the damaging environmental impact that other plastic or aluminium capsules have.

Recyclable packaging too

Each element of the packaging has also been designed to minimize its impact on the environment. The flow wrap packaging is fully biodegradable to EN13432 standard and the cardboard box is 100% recyclable.

Compatible with most Nespresso® machines

These capsules are compatible with most Nespresso® machines with the exception of professional machines, Gaggia, Saeco and Siemens machines, built-in models (Miele) and capsule-holder machines.


DeLonghi Nespresso® - Yes, compatible.

DeLonghi Dolce Gusto - No, not compatible.

Press the right button!

NOTE: These are Espresso capsules. Use only Espresso capsules with the Espresso button and Lungo capsules with the Long-serve button.
