Why? Because what’s in the capsules is important. “The environmental impact of agriculture in coffee cultivation is decisive for the ecological balance of coffee capsules”, says at least the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Testing and Research. It is therefore very important for us that the coffee in our biodegradable capsules is forest coffee. This grows in the middle of the forest, its natural ecosystem. Coffee cultivation not only protects the original flora and fauna – farmers can also completely do without chemical fertilizers, artificial irrigation and the like. Estimates also assume that the environmental impact of capsule production, even for plastic and aluminium, is only approximately equivalent to that of 1 gram of conventionally grown coffee arises. The low coffee consumption per cup, which distinguishes capsules, is therefore important.
