Our capsules are certified as OK Compostable for local authority composting.
This means if you have food waste recycling from your local authority the capsules including lids and coffee can be put straight in here when you empty your Nespresso® machine. After around 90 days the capsules will be fully composted. At the minute these capsules don’t break down in home composting. The rest of the packaging is fully recyclable as well. The box the capsules come in uses water-based inks and can be recycled with any cardboard and paper system. The two bags with capsules in are fully compostable too so these can be added to your food waste recycling as well. These bags are flushed with nitrogen when the capsules are packed to get rid of oxygen and increase the shelf life.
How to brew
If you have your Nespresso® machine set up with the factory settings Artisan Roast’s capsules will still deliver a great brew. We use a little more coffee than usual in our capsules which helps deliver a fuller, more consistent coffee extraction when you brew at home.
To get the very best out of the coffee we do recommend altering the volume of water the machine puts out for each drink. The standard settings are 40ml for espresso and 110ml for lungo and we find our capsules deliver more flavour intensity when brewed shorter to 25ml espresso and 80ml lungo. Each machine has a slightly different set up for doing this so please refer to your manual as to the right process.
One quick brew tip is to bring your machine up to temperature with a full reservoir, then without a capsule loaded, brew for about ten seconds into an empty cup. Throw this water away and you’ll also have a perfectly heated Nespresso® machine ready for brewing delicious coffee.
