Good to know

Our coffee could not be anything other than organic. It comes from the southern Ethiopian highlands, where the environment is perfect for producing coffee without adding pesticides or artificial additives.

It is complicated. Truth be told, the small, family-owned coffee plantations we work with are not organic for economic reasons. Pesticides and fertilizers are a "luxury" they simply can not afford. But it also means that it is difficult for them to pay for the inspections and procedures to acquire the organic certificate, and this often hinders their ability to get a good price for their coffee. Our hope is that by reinvesting in the community and paying them reasonably for their efforts will ultimately allow them to get the certificates.

Our coffee comes from Impact Roasters, which pays prices well above the Fair-Trade quota (25% more / kg coffee) and invests in local youth development and education projects. This allows us to ensure a long-lasting positive impact on the local communities that grow the beans, while ensuring quality throughout.

Our coffee capsules are made from sunflower seed shells and an organic based substance, which makes them 100% compostable and biodegradable. Once used, the capsule and filter can be disposed of in your home compost, where they will decompose into nutrients for the soil within 6 months.

We could not claim that our product is sustainable, and let our packaging be made of plastic. The capsule box is Craddle 2 certified and the shipping package is made of FSC certified cardboard. To this end, the packaging must be recycled as normal cardboard.

At present, Danish authorities have not approved the disposal of capsules in the green bag, which they claim is only for organic food leftovers. The capsules would be sorted as they would not know the difference between ours and the rest. However, our capsule would fit well with the green bag as it would act as fertilizer for the soil. We are constantly monitoring the situation and expect the rules to change in the future.

Our capsules are compatible with all original Nespresso machines.
