Best Buy Ethiopian Compostable Coffee Pods


Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee, with the terroir of the famous coffee region of Yirgacheffe particularly famous for its floral notes of jasmine, so a true Yirgacheffe is a real treat to savour. Our speciality-graded Arabica coffee is sourced from the village of Yirgacheffe itself, grown as ‘garden coffee’ in small lots at an altitude of between 1700-1900 meters.


Our Nespresso® compatible plastic free pods are filled with speciality grade coffees from around the world and prove just how good capsule coffee *should* taste. They also contain 10% more coffee than standard Nespresso® capsules.

Don’t take our word for it though as our Ethiopian Yirgacheffe’s bright, sweet and fruity flavours and aromatics have earned it:

Scoring 13/15 by the highly respected and famous judging panel who said "The pods were very easy to use and worked well in the Nespresso® coffee pod machine. The coffee itself was rich and smooth, with a fruity, chocolatey taste. It’s got a nice strength without being overpowering, so is a great all-rounder. It also gave a lovely Carmel-coloured cream!"

Our Ethiopian Yirgacheffe compostable coffee pods have been awarded a ‘Best Buy’ award by Which? magazine, the UK's top consumer magazine

Our plastic free Nespresso®-compatible coffee pods have also won a 2 Star Great Taste Award, with judges saing "it delivers amazing flavours" and “The advance in the quality of coffee pod coffee is well demonstrated in this single origin Ethiopian arabica coffee pod.” Another Great Taste Awards judge commented: "What a truly wonderful citrus and tropical rich coffee bean aroma your coffee has. Along with the fruity acidic sharp bitter notes, this coffee performs the perfect front stage ballet of flavour."

Compatible with Nespresso® original domestic drop-through coffee machines (excl. Expert), our compostable coffee pods and capsules 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.

Our oxygen-tight capsules also mean our wonderful range of eco capsule coffees will stay fresh for 12 months, but you'll definitely not wait that long to drink them all up.

Our plastic-free coffee capsules perform even better than Aluminium-compatible pods (non-Nespresso®) that are now commonplace, with no water leakage before the coffee begins to extract.

To prove this, the GREAT BRITISH FOOD AWARDS 2022 judging panel confirmed "From a practical standpoint, the pods were very easy to use and worked well in the machine. Sometimes compostable pods go soggy and get stuck in the machine, or add a slightly cardboard taste to the coffee, but we didn’t experience any of these problems."

Farmed sustainably and in harmony with the environment, the premium we pay our growers for their highest-quality speciality coffee beans allows them to invest in their livelihoods, families and communities. Sip by sip you will also be helping us support water and wildlife projects in our origins that also protect the Abyssinian Blue-Winged Goose, which inspired our whole brand!
