Our capsules are made from plant-based materials which makes them biodegradable and ideal for industrial composting.
Gishwati Cloud Forest coffee is grown 60km from the unique ecological hotspot that is Virunga Park and is home to a quarter of the world's last mountain gorillas and other endangered zebra-looking Okapi. Gishwati used to host a big number different species of primates such as Chimpanzees and Golden monkeys, but much of it was cleared for subsistence farming over the years. The coffee rewards 700 organic farmers for sustainable land management practices. This is not yet a carbon registered project and we have been talking to the NGOs about how we might help raise some funds to support a payment for ecosystem services initiative. In the meantime, we are keeping things in the family by offsetting the Rwandan coffee carbon footprint with the reforestation carbon f credits from our Ugandan farmers!

Delicious Capsule Coffee
These are the best coffee capsules I've ever tried. A lot more subtle and smooth than Nespresso originals, with really nicely well-balanced flavour. The first capsules I've tried where you can real pick-up individual notes. Really delighted to see these on Ocado!
A disappointment :-(
Great to be Organic and with decomposable capsules and packaging but taste is just not there. And not Fairtrade either so wont buy again.
Really good coffee and compostable pod!
I bought this hoping to feel a bit better about using pods but fully expecting the coffee to be sub-standard. I was really pleasantly surprised! Really good coffee and pod works a treat. Just put the used pod in the food waste bag and hey presto, your life just got a little bit greener! Just make sure when you use the pod you make the espresso right away, as if it sits in the coffee machine too long before being punctured I think the dampness may affect the pressure capable of being pushed through.
Ethical Coffee Pods
Bought these because of their ethical credentials but amazing coffee.
