Jaques BioCaps 10 Pack (Nespresso®* Compatable Coffee Capsules) - Espresso Roast
Jaques BioCaps are plant based & compostable Coffee Capsules in a great suit. The secret lies in the material used in our plant-based capsules. We make them entirely from sugarcane and sugar beet then fill them with high quality single origin Australian grown coffee. This means that the complete capsule, including the top film is made from plants materials. Under the right industrial set conditions they will fully break-down into compost in around 12 weeks.
If you throw away your used capsules in the regular waste bin, then they may end up in landfill, recycled, or incinerated. In all three cases, our coffee capsule will have less of an impact than the conventional coffee capsules. We have built in a plant-based oxygen barrier to keep our coffee fresh. This means that our entire capsule, can be chewed up, and spat out by our little microbial friends, leaving behind biomass, CO2 and water. Unlike the plant-based plastics we use, most conventional coffee capsules are made from petroleum-based plastics. Microorganisms cannot digest these materials, and so a bit like us, they stay well clear of them!
Jaques BioCap coffee capsules, however, are unique because they are made solely from plant-based plastics (polylactic acids), or if you’re lazy like us, PLA’s. This material is cleverly designed to decompose, leaving nothing but healthy biological nutrients, which can be safely returned back into a closed-loop cycle.
Simply use our capsules the same way you would Nespresso capsules. They work in all Nespresso® Machines but unfortunately, they cannot be used in built-in machines like Miele, Gaggia, Saeco and Siemens, nor in machines with a capsule holder.
