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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
NOTE: These are Espresso capsules. Use only Espresso capsules with the Espresso button and Lungo capsules with the Long-serve button.
The New Internationalist brings to life the people, the ideas and the action in the fight for global justice.
New Internationalist weighs the world on the scales of justice. By tapping into a vast global network of activists, the compassionately written and tightly edited magazine breathes life into the struggles, projects, and people who are working to build a better planet.
The New Internationalist is exactly the sort of intelligent, committed and progressive publication which here at The Chaser, we strongly disapprove of.
I can certainly commend the New Internationalist for quick postage & handling - I ordered it on the web and it arrived at my door within 2-3 days, awesome compared to the usual 1 month+ with Amazon!

New Internationalist supports Fair Trade producers like Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience. Fair Trade promotes a fair wage and fair working conditions, encouraging developing world producers to help themselves.
A little about Mahaguthi Craft with a Conscience: Mahaguthi Craft supports the development of micro-enterprises and helps disadvantaged producers improve their quality of life in Nepal.
New Internationalist Australia is a member of the World Fair Trade Organization, which means we have to stock a percentage of Fair Trade products, and also adhere to Fair Trade practices ourselves. Great for supporting producers rights, and also for our staff.
