Notes Coffee launches compostable and biodegradable pods

Specialty coffee roaster, Notes Coffee, has launched a range of its premium, single-origin coffees in pods.

Compatible with Nespresso coffee makers, they are also fully compostable and biodegradable yet have a 12-month shelf-life, giving operators the chance to add to their eco credentials whilst maintaining a premium coffee offer for their customers.

The first in the range are an Ethiopia roast and a decaffeinated coffee from Colombia. The Ethiopian coffee is from the Bokasso Cooperative in Sidamo. It was the brand’s first ever roast and one which remains so popular that Notes buys the coffee every year.

Next to come is a Honduran coffee from the mountains around Ocotepeque, the perfect coffee for milk and non-dairy alternatives. After that, Notes expects to launch every new coffee in capsule form to complete the line-up.

Notes Coffee co-founder, Fabio Ferreira, said: “Notes’ philosophy is based on using ethically sourced and fairly traded coffee beans for every roast. The materials we use to supply our customers should be no different. We are immensely proud to bring a Nespresso-compatible pod to the UK market, which is fully compostable and biodegradable – our customers don’t need to worry about recycling, their only job is to enjoy a delicious, specialty coffee.”

The pods are available to buy from Notes’ ten coffee shops around London and online, at
