IN STOCK NOW!
Follow the Blue Goose to a new breed of coffee capsule…
We’ve taken The Foodies Larder range of eco capsules and improved every aspect (in our opinion!).
Don’t worry though, the new range still includes everything you loved about our previous The Foodies Larder range, from our Organic Peruvian to our Ethiopian Yirgacheffe and our Organic Honduran Swiss Water Decaf.
So welcome to Blue Goose®️ Coffee…our all-new, exceptional coffee line up in compostable coffee capsules that don’t cost the Earth.
If proof was needed that the coffees taste great, then our Ethiopian Yirgacheffe has already received a ‘Best Buy’ accolade from the UK’s leading ‘consumer champion’ magazine, with our Peruvian joint 4th out of 21 compostable coffee capsules tested!
Get ready to #followtheBlueGoose
How Coffee Capsule Should Taste
Just like our Foodies Larder range of three premium compostable coffee capsules, our new range of Blue Goose eco coffee capsules are compatible with Nespresso®️ home systems, giving you a truly delicious, ethical Nespresso coffee experience every cup. This is thanks to the rich, Single Origin speciality coffees we source from our coffee cooperatives in the Ethiopian Yirgacheffe region and the mountains of Peru.
Both are shade grown and our Peruvian coffee is also Organic, so you can rest assured our coffees are grown at source with the least environmental impact possible.
The good news doesn’t stop there though, especially for Decaff lovers who can now enjoy the UK’s very first compostable, Organic Swiss Water® Decaff coffee capsule. Using an all-natural and 100% chemical-free process to extract the caffeine from the beans you’ll love our single-origin Honduran Swiss Water decaf coffee capsule. Good for you and good for the planet!
Each of our coffee capsules also contain 10% more coffee than a standard Nespresso® capsule, giving you even more reason to make the switch to our 100% compostable and biodegradable coffee capsules. They really are coffee capsules that don’t cost the earth!
Compostable & biodegradable coffee capsules
We’re also particularly proud to say that our Nespresso® compatible capsules are 100% compostable and biodegradable, unlike Nespresso’s® own capsules and all those plastic coffee capsules available online or in supermarkets.
After use, simply put our coffee capsules into your local council food waste bin at home, safe in the knowledge that our capsules will have broken down within 6-12 weeks!
You can also add your used capsules to your home compost pile, if you have one. Conditions do vary greatly from one compost pile to another though, so it is hard to put an exact time frame on things, so please allow 18 to 24 months to decompose naturally where the ideal temperature in healthy compost piles need to be around 20° to 40°. Even so, it will disintegrate and improve your compost when it does, so it’s a win-win!
We’d of course always encourage you not to add to landfill, but the incredibly diverse (bonkers!) recycling requirements between UK councils means you might not have these options. In which case you can put your used capsules into your standard rubbish bin as our capsules are also biodegradable – in fact they are one of the only eco-capsules to be 100% bio based with no petro-chemical content whatsoever (not all are, sadly, despite their compostable claims!).
Nespresso® – convenience over conscience
The above 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!
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’. 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!
Guilt-free coffee capsules that don’t cost the earth…
Thankfully though, technology has helped us develop a biodegradable coffee capsule range that helps you avoid that guilty feeling of throwing capsules in the bin or the burden of recycling coffee pods via Nespresso’s recycling scheme. So join us and indulge in a guilt-free coffee courtesy of our lovely cooperative farmers and our biodegradable coffee capsule varieties here!
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 blackcurrant and subtle jasmine ﬂavours earned it a ‘Best Buy’ award by the UK’s top consumer magazine in May 2019.
Peruvian Compostable Biodegradable Coffee Capsules
Our speciality-graded Organic Peruvian Arabica coffee is grown in the country’s northern mountains by six neighbouring smallholder farms. Farmed organically and in harmony with the environment, it is a smooth, balanced coffee with hints of fruit & spice for that morning treat or afternoon lift.
Our Swiss Water® Decaffeinated Compostable Coffee Capsules
Our Organic speciality-graded Honduran Coffee is decaffeinated naturally and without chemicals thanks to the innovative Swiss Water® process. A rich coffee with medium to high acidity, lovely body and subtle notes of chocolate, fruit and caramel. An indulgent cup of coffee anytime of the day.
