Volcano Coffee Works' home compostable coffee pods are the perfect solution for coffee lovers who want convenience without sacrificing sustainability. These pods are compatible with Nespresso machines, ensuring a hassle-free coffee experience. Each pod is filled with ethically sourced, speciality ground coffee, delivering a delicious cup of coffee with every sip.

As an independent brand based in Brixton, London, we prioritize ethical sourcing and environmental responsibility, using compostable materials to package our products. These biodegradable coffee pods are fully home compostable, breaking down into organic matter within weeks. Learn more about why our pods are compostable on our blog. By choosing our compostable coffee pods, you're not only supporting a local business, but also contributing to a more sustainable future.

What are home compostable coffee pods?

Home compostable coffee pods are a sustainable alternative to traditional coffee pods that are not biodegradable (such as aluminium).

Our pods are made from plant-based materials that can break down naturally in a home composting environment, reducing the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.

At Volcano Coffee Works, we offer home compostable coffee pods for our customers who want to enjoy our speciality coffee without compromising on sustainability. By choosing home compostable coffee pods, you can help to reduce your environmental impact and enjoy your coffee guilt-free.

Are your coffee pods compatible with my pod machine?

Our pods are compatible with the original Nespresso® machines. These are not compatible with the Vertuo Nespresso® machines.

How good are your coffee pods?

We’ve worked hard to make our compostable coffee pods the best they can be, and we’re proud that they’ve been recognised for their quality. Our previous range has won Great Taste Awards and we featured on Good Housekeeping's ’11 best coffee pods for 2023’. Our new range launched November 2023 to align with our existing coffee range.

What are the pods made from?

Our innovative capsules are made of natural material derived from 100% biobased cellulose and vegetal oils – in simpler terms this means they are entirely organic and biodegradable. And a perfect cup of coffee is always guaranteed thanks to a barrier to oxygen level.

How long does the coffee last?

Our fully home compostable coffee pods have a shelf-life of 18 months.

How do I compost the pods?

The pods are “OK Compost Home” certified and will decompose within 180 days at ambient temperature – quicker than an orange peel! Just pop it in your home garden compost and watch it decompose. If you don’t have access to a home compost, just pop it in your general waste bin – this is still far more environmentally friendly than other coffee pods.

How do I get the most out of my pods?

We recommend you give the pods a good shake before inserting them into the machine. And purge water through the machine in between each pod, it helps heat up the machine and get it ready for your pod. If it's not piercing well, try and push down hard after you've put the pod in. The compostable material that we use might have a bit thicker film than the other pods you have tried.

We recommended using one pod for the ristretto setting on a Nespresso machine and two pods for the lungo setting to ensure your coffee is still as strong as you like it.
