Novell Launches New Compostable Coffee Capsule with Certified Organic Coffee

Cafes Novell, the family owned coffee roaster based in Barcelona is to launch the first compostable coffee capsule in Spain, reaf­firming its commit­ment to inno­va­tion and will see Novell creating a capsule that elim­i­nates waste in up to 12 weeks.
The composting process lasts between 4 to 12 weeks, however depending on the effi­ciency of the process it can be as fast as 4 weeks in a commer­cial composting envi­ron­ment. The result is a completely composted product which will not create waste and damage to the envi­ron­ment. It is an inno­v­a­tive solu­tion that will miti­gate the envi­ron­mental impact currently caused by plastic and aluminium capsules and is another step forward for Novell in the expan­sion of the brand glob­ally.

The Novell compostable capsule is made from state-of-the-art bio-based mate­rials, formed of ecovio mate­rial which is made from biodegrad­able plastic compostable (Ecoflex) and PLA (made from corn). Novell will offi­cially launch the new prod­ucts to the market today, 6 April 2017 at the London Coffee Festival. Initially offered in two blends of Certified Organic coffee, Intenso and Decaf, the coffee will be avail­able to purchase at the show or online.

Phil White, Managing Director of Novell in the UK said: “The new compostable capsule won’t alter the taste, aroma or quality of the certi­fied Organic coffee. In addi­tion, the capsule is fully compat­ible with all Nespresso machines and unlike most other capsules they can be thrown into organic recy­cling for composting instead of the general waste, over­coming one of the major concerns in the industry now.”

Josep Novell, CEO of Novell said: “It is a clear commit­ment to inno­va­tion and strengthens Novell’s commit­ment to the envi­ron­ment by providing a solu­tion to the issues surrounding capsule coffee and envi­ron­mental concerns.”
