Cafféluxe environmentally friendly industrial compostable capsules
We love the environment as much as we love our coffee, which is why our innovative Cafféluxe compostable coffee capsules have been designed to have as little negative ecological impact as possible.
Our compostable capsules are used in our Cafféluxe African Collection range and takes less than 2 months to degrade in industrial compost. The capsules are made from a bio-sourced agro-material (sourced from French cereal sectors) which means they are organic based (produced mainly from vegetable fibers and starch) and made from renewable sources. But that’s not all, we have gone further by replacing the conventional foil lid with a paper lid, thus making the entire capsule 100% industrial compostable
Our compostable capsules are compliant with the stringent requirements of the EN 13432 standard with regards to chemical composition, biodegradation, disintegration and quality of the final compost and eco-toxicity. All of the materials used to create our unique capsules have been certified by Vinçotte and received the “OK Compost” certification. In this way, Cafféluxe is doing their part to create coffee with a conscience, as well as capsules that don’t cost the earth.
