A recent article published online out of Australia states that over 3 million coffee capsules are discarded every day. That's over 10 billion coffee capsules a year.
That's a lot considering it is just one country
Although they are sold as recyclable unless you actually send them back to the Nespresso recycling plant these generally end up in your local landfill.
This is the most eco-friendly coffee product I have found as it has no plastic or disposable parts and stainless means no plastic after taste ruining that perfect blend of your favorite coffee.
Nothing say's eco-friendly, green and sustainable reusable, then a product like this.
When I found this product, I straight away went out and bought these. A set of 3 stainless coffee capsules with a coffee press/tamper. You simply put your favorite coffee from your local roaster in them and boom a perfect coffee
Have your favorite coffee blend from your local cafe at home. OMG does it get better?
This product is made from high-grade stainless steel and totally reusable time and time again. It is recommended that you use tongs to take them out once they have been used and dropped through the dispenser in your Nespresso/ to avoid burning your fingers before you clean them and reuse them again and again.
You can buy the coffee press/tamper either as part of a pack or singularly but its recommend you use one to press the coffee into the pod. They are made to fit the little pods perfectly
A medium blend coffee is also recommended for the pods to get the best flavour.
This is as green as it gets with coffee apart from the leaves of the coffee plant itself.
