Aluminium Coffee Pods FAQ

Why are aluminium Nespresso coffee pods so popular?

There are three main reasons for choosing an aluminium capsule:

  1. Aluminium Nespresso coffee pods are lightweight and infinitely recyclable, meaning capsules can be recycled time and time again for more than just coffee pods.
  1. Aluminium coffee pods protect the quality of the coffee and keeps coffee fresher for longer. This is achieved by protecting the coffee from oxygen, light and humidity.
  1. Aluminium coffee capsules allow for the best possible capsule coffee experience thanks to their high barrier to oxygen level, a high internal volume of coffee per capsule and a perfect sealing quality.

Are Di Stefano's Nespresso coffee pods home compostable?

No. Our aluminium coffee pods are not home compostable. Leading sustainable coffee brand, Tripod Coffee, offer an industry leading range of compostable coffee pods.

Will the aluminium coffee pods biodegrade if I throw them in the garden?

No. Aluminium capsules need to be recycled correctly so they can be reworked and used again for other products. 

Do the aluminium capsules work in my Nespresso machine?
