I bought an advent calendar for my mother who loves her coffee but we are both concious of the aluminium packaging of most pods. These are biodegradeable (she has a good compost heap!), ethically sourced and a diverse range of flavours. Looking forward to giving her a real surprise!!!!
'Selfridges Says' description of our Eco Nespresso Coffee Pod Advent Calendar
We're so proud that our Eco Nespresso Coffee Pod Advent Calendar sold out within days of going on sale in Selfridges Oxford Street and their website. It's a dream come true for any small business so we'd like to thank them for seeing just how much we are pioneering the coffee in plastic free packaging space. Here's what they said about it: "Name us a better smell than freshly brewed coffee in the morning, we dare you. And we think that coffee connoisseurs Blue Goose would agree too. That’s why they’ve created an advent calendar filled with 24 Nespresso® coffee pods to start the days leading up to Christmas. Behind each door, you’ll discover eco-friendly pods for Nespresso machines that are ethically sourced and made with speciality-grade organic beans. If you thought that was impressive, wait until you hear about the flavour combinations."
