Our Espressotoria® capsule range are completely recyclable after you remove the coffee and lid. Many other market leading capsule brands would require the capsule to be sent to a facility in order for it to be recycled. Many others contain plastic filters and other parts.

Endeavouring to use less plastic than other capsule brands was also a key manufacturing consideration so Espressotoria® capsules only contain 0.7g of plastic per serve. Espressotoria® capsule shells are made from polypropylene #5 which is a fully recyclable plastic and is aluminium free. The used ground coffee can actually be an excellent addition to a compost pile. The grinds provide bacteria with the energy they need to turn organic matter into compost.

We are committed to ensuring sustainability throughout our operations and we recognise the need for a responsible approach to the recycling of used capsules. Please note that our compatible capsule range is not recyclable however we are continuously working with our supply chain partners to explore ways to improve the ecological footprint of our capsules and are hoping to launch a more sustainable product in the near future.
