For 30 years, Nespresso has been dedicated to bringing its consumers the ultimate coffee experience. Today, it has announced a new range of paper-based home compostable capsules.

Guillaume Le Cunff, Nespresso CEO, said: “Pushing the boundaries of fine coffee experiences is part of the Nespresso innovation. Since becoming a B Corp earlier this year, we’re more committed than ever to widening the sustainable choices we offer our consumers. We are excited to announce our first-ever paper-based home compostable capsule, which will complement our offering of aluminum capsules that are both recyclable and made using 80% recycled aluminum. It is about yet another sustainable choice, without compromising on quality.”

Julia Lauricella, Head of Global R&D Center for Systems and Coffee Machines, said: “Our 40 years of experience in coffee systems allowed us, together with the Nestlé Institute of Packaging Sciences, to develop a home compostable paper-based capsule, retro-compatible with the Nespresso Original machines, that meets and exceeds the high expectations consumers have of Nespresso in terms of protecting the coffee’s aromas and taste. We combined a high-precision paper pulp forming process with a biodegradable layer for protection against oxidation to preserve our coffee in transport, storage, and during the high-pressure extraction in our machines.”

The product is certified for composting, home, and industrial use, by TÃœV Austria, an international certification body. In some countries, including France, where Nespresso is piloting this range, these capsules are acceptable in the public biowaste bin.

Nestlé Nespresso SA is the pioneer for high-quality portioned coffee. The company works with more than 140,000 farmers in 18 countries through its AAA Sustainable Quality Program to embed sustainability practices on farms and the surrounding landscapes. Headquartered in Vevey, Switzerland, Nespresso operates in 81 countries and has over 13,000 employees with a global retail network of 802 boutiques.
