FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Where can I buy the coffee?

Check with your Club for availability in store.
Can the Capsules be recycled?
Step 1 – collect your used pods (We suggest you begin the recycle process once you have collected a full bowl of empty pods, not after each use)
Step 2 – When you have a full bowl/bag of used pods remove the foil from the pod
Step 3 – Empty the coffee grounds from the pod into a separate bowl. Place the plastic capsules in the recycle bin and the used coffee grounds in the compost or on the garden, your plants will love it!
We encourage all consumers to recycle the product. We have specifically produced our capsules in the hermetically sealed production method to reduce waste. This process decreases the amount of foil used, meaning the majority of the product can be recycled.
* Please note at this point in time the tin foil used on our capsules is not recyclable.

Are the capsules Nespresso® compatible? Are you sure?

Where is the coffee roasted and encapsulated?

How long does the coffee retain it’s freshness in the capsule?
Our capsules are sealed hermetically giving the coffee an 18month best before time frame. Check the side of the box for use by dates.
What does hermetically sealed mean?
Basically ‘airtight’. It’s achieved by flushing the capsule with nitrogen to remove the oxygen, filling the capsule with coffee and sealing. This technique seals in the coffee’s freshness.

The process used to produce our capsules allows us to use 20% more coffee than similar overwrap capsules.
