Refillable Stainless Steel Coffee Capsules for Aldi K-fee® Expressi Machines
This stainless steel coffee capsule gives you the ability to be your own barista and use any freshly roasted coffee beans you choose. No longer do you have to be restricted by pre-filled coffee pods, now you can use any beans you like! The world of capsule coffee making just expanded allowing you to have a better coffee.
From the creators of Pod Star capsules for Nespresso machines, Eco Star Products present a fully reusable capsule for Aldi K-fee® Expressi machines - the first lifetime capsule, plastic-free and zero waste.
Did you know that the Aldi K-fee® coffee pods hold 50% more coffee than many of coffee pods sold, so you get more coffee per cup. The coffee comes out hotter than many other machines too, so with your choice of coffee in a refillable capsule, this combines to offer the best capsule-made coffee solution.
You gain greater choice and better, fresher coffee, and our planet saves on landfill and the environmental cost of producing over 55 million coffee pods every. single. day. That's a huge cost to our planet. Plastic coffee capsules are an increasing environmental problem. The greenhouse gas emissions from producing these massive quantities everyday, and the millions going to landfill everyday are choking our planet. It takes around 300 years for the plastic pods to break down to small plastic particles in landfill.
The Pod Star capsule for Aldi K-fee® Expressi machines is a zero waste product. Even the used coffee grounds can be reused on your garden.
Our prototype took some time to develop so we could assure the best fit, and the best coffee. There is a second stainless steel chamber within the capsule that acts as a filter and allows the pressure to build up just enough for the water to get the full flavour of the coffee before it's pushed through to pour. The capsule is made from food grade stainless steel and is designed to last a lifetime.

Hi! We are Mark and Kirsten, an Australian and a New Zealander living in Sydney, married for some years now. We're passionate about the environment, design, freedom of choice, and coffee! Mark has been a designer pretty much forever. He designed Australia's iconic music award, the Aria, and has been designing for products and marketing ever since.
We want to add value, give people freedom, and help the environment. And we want to leave a world for our kids and their kids, that is improved in as many ways possible. We're driven by good technology, design, and innovation where creativity meets purpose.
We created Pod Star capsules for Nespresso machines due our own love of coffee. We had a Nespresso machine in our office and wanted to use our favourite coffee and save money on our coffee. We were alarmed to learn of the waste associated with single-use pods, and this drove us to find a solution.
We have now been providing stainless steel reusable coffee capsules that are Nespresso machine compatible for a number of months and our customers are giving us excellent feedback and reviews (please check www.podstar.com.au ). But the question we get asked every day is "do these fit Aldi machines?" So we quickly realised we weren't doing all we could, and we felt disappointed every time we had to tell people that no, they do not fit Aldi machines.
We knew we had to start working on a solution for all of the Aldi machine users, and after months of researching, developing and testing, we have finally got the design just right. The Pod Star stainless steel capsule for Aldi K-fee® machines is designed to last a lifetime and offer the optimal coffee experience.
With your help to reach our kickstarter goal, we will get our first production run going and start replacing single use pods with reusable coffee capsules all over the world.
Risks and challenges
🤓We see this project as low risk.
We are already selling high quantities of reusable stainless steel capsules for Nespresso via our website www.podstar.com.au so we have all the processes and systems in place to add reusable Aldi K-Fee capsules.
Our major challenge will be timeframes.
We will track each delivery. However, depending on your location, delivery may take longer than hoped for.
Once we have reached our funding goal for this kickstarter, we will go straight into production. Production time will be approximately 6 weeks, and orders will be dispatched within 4 weeks of the completed production run.
We don't want to over-promise and under-deliver, so we expect deliveries to begin at the end of April at the earliest.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
