Welcome to a new breed of coffee capsule…
Our very own Blue Goose Eco Coffee Pod range offers a simple plastic-free swap that tastes exceptional thanks to compostable coffee capsules that don’t cost the Earth.
Compatible with Nespresso® original domestic drop-through coffee pod machines (excl. Expert), our plastic-free certified, GM-free coffee capsules made using waste wood bark from the European paper industry and produced using renewable energy.
But to be an easy plastic-free and eco coffee swap, they’ve also got to taste fabulous…luckily this is the case as our Ethiopian Yirgacheffe has already received a ‘Best Buy’ accolade from the UK’s leading ‘consumer champion’ magazine, with our Peruvian close behind in joint 4th out of 21 compostable coffee capsules tested!
So get ready to #followtheBlueGoose
How Coffee Capsule Should Taste
We consciously set out to match our eco-credentials with the finest tasting ethical and speciality Arabica coffees, with unique flavours and aromatics that reflect the particular bean varietal, growing region, altitude and farming practices used. The result is proof of just how good capsule coffee should taste, with not a piece of plastic or Aluminium in sight!
Ethically sourced and sustainably grown in the world’s most respected coffee growing regions, our Blue Goose eco coffee pod range has already received national accolades, with our Ethiopian Yirgacheffe securing a Which? Magazine Best Buy in 2019.
Each of our coffee capsules also contain at least 10% more coffee than standard Nespresso® and plastic capsules, giving a truly delicious, ethical coffee experience, cup after cup.
Compostable & biodegradable coffee capsules
We’re particularly proud to say that our Nespresso® compatible capsules are certified compostable and biodegradable, unlike Nespresso’s® own capsules and all those plastic coffee capsules available online or in supermarkets.
After use, they can be placed in your food waste collection where they will be processed into compost or liquid fertilizer depending on the facilities used by your local council (for more info, visit our “Compostable Coffee Capsule FAQ” page).
This can mean our capsules are processed in as little as 12 weeks, which is in stark contrast to aluminium Nespresso® capsules, which can take up to 150 years to breakdown, or up to 500 years for plastic capsules which are not recyclable!
Capsule machines…convenience over conscience
If you’re one of the many coffee lovers who feel guilty using coffee capsule machines then you’re not alone. In reality less than 30% of Nespresso’s capsules are recycled by them (these are their own official stats might we add!), with many people admitting to us that they simply throw their used coffee capsules into the black waste bin.
Nespresso® offer their own capsule recycling bags and service of course, but in reality, the majority of capsules are simply thrown away and end up in landfill sites. So ultimately Nespresso’s focus on coffee convenience is sadly at odds with the inconvenience of their recycling process.
Likewise, some companies selling plastic coffee capsules make spurious claims about being ‘eco-friendly’ and others shout about their “100% recyclable” Nespresso® compatible aluminium pods.
But the only way they can achieve this claim is in fact by putting the onus solely on you, the customer, to do all the work. So if you are one of the few people to have both the conscience and time to painstakingly peel-empty-wash every single capsule before placing it into the recycling bin then we salute you!
Ultiamtely, the convenience of a Nespresso® Machine is just too much to resist for some, but for any coffee lover who can’t resist and loves the convenience of Nespresso pods, our range of Blue Goose eco coffee pods are a move towards a better coffee capsule solution.

Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Compostable & Biodegradable Coffee Capsules
Our speciality-graded Arabica coffee is sourced from the village of Yirgacheffe itself, where it is grown in small lots at an altitude of between 1700-1900 m. Its bright, sweet aromatics with and subtle blackcurrant ﬂavours earned it a Which? Magazine ‘Best Buy’ eco coffee capsule award – the UK’s top consumer magazine. It’s also since won a 2 Star Great Taste eco coffee capsule award so is the best rated eco, compostable and biodegradable coffee capsule in the UK!
Our rich, speciality coffee from the Ethiopian Yirgacheffe region is grown as ‘garden coffee’ in small lots. The birthplace of coffee itself, Ethiopia produces some of the highest quality and most prized Arabica coffees in the world, and this coffee is no exception.
