About

Coffee that doesn't cost the Earth.

We're comPod coffee - and we want you to join us in making the world a better place, one coffee at a time! 

Our Nespresso® compatible coffee pods are 100% compostable, fully biodegrading within 6 months of brewing an amazing cup of coffee. Because coffee shouldn't cost the Earth.

 

The true cost of your coffee habit (until now!)

Who doesn't love coffee?? And thanks to Nespresso® compatible capsules, brewing the perfect cup of coffee has never been more convenient. 

But do you know the true cost of your coffee?

Every year, it's estimated that BILLIONS of single-use coffee capsules end up in landfill. That morning coffee costs our planet a whole lot more than we pay at the checkout... until now. 

We're launching comPod to help make this world a better place, one coffee at a time. Our capsules completely biodegrade within 6 months of being brewed, meaning your morning coffee doesn't cost the earth. 

No more coffee capsules clogging up landfill for hundreds of years. No more guilt with each cup. Just delicious coffee in fully compostable coffee capsules that fit into most Nespresso® machines! 

Join the movement, be a legend, and get behind capsule coffee that doesn't cost the earth.

Risks and challenges

We're so excited about our fully compostable capsules! We've nailed the roasting profile, so the coffee tastes great - and the pods are just awesome, biodegrading within 180 days!

But we have faced one hurdle: our only real challenge is keeping the pods fresh.

Unfortunately, the only solution is that the pods have to be wrapped in a foil wrapper - so they're not *quite* zero waste. But the foil is easy to dispose of ethically, and the pods last up to 2 years without spoilage, which is great!

We've also managed to cut our waste by wrapping 5 capsules together in the foil, rather than individually. This ensures freshness with minimal waste!
