The Foodies Larder has released a range of biodegradable and compostable decaf coffee capsules which are compatible with Nespresso machines.
The company claims the capsules are the first biodegradable decaf capsules available in the UK.
The Swiss Water Decaff capsules are made from corn starch, and the company claims the capsules will completely disintegrate within six months.
Swiss Water Decaff capsules contain organic Fairtrade arabica coffee, and the company avoids the use of chemicals in the manufacturing process, creating a caffeine and chemical free decaff coffee.
The Foodies Larder co-founder, Lex Thornely said: “Throw our corn starch capsules into standard rubbish bins, council food waste collection bins or just compost them at home and they will completely disintegrate within six months.
“This is in stark contrast to regular aluminium and plastic coffee capsules, which take anywhere between 150 and 500 years to breakdown in landfill.
“Swiss Water Decaff capsules are also minimising the use of pesticides and man-made solvents. So for those wanting to go caffeine-free, our decaf offers the most convenient coffee capsule experience, but without the guilty conscience.”
The capsule range is available from Amazon for £20 for a pack of 40 capsules.
