FAQ

Are the capsules compatibles with all Nespresso machines?

Do you have a sample pack available?
Unfortunately not at this time.
Where do you manufacture Cap'Mundo?
Cap’Mundo is manufactured in Europe (France) in total respect of EU quality standards.
I have heard coffee capsules are bad for the environment, why are these ones different?
These capsules are some of the first in the world to be made out of 100% bio-organic material and designed to be 100% compostable.
The capsule body is made out of corn-starch and the seals do not use any metal, so no metals and plastics potentially harmful to the environment are used. Combined with the fact the capsule is designed to break down to nothing in a industrial composting plant.
Is Cap'Mundo associated with Nespresso?
No. Cap'Mundo belongs to Single Origins S.A. and is not in any way associated with Nestle® or Nespresso®
What is BRC / IFS certification?
These food quality and safety standards are published by retail trade groups. Any company wishing to supply its food products to those retailers must meet the required standards. The retailers request that an independent third party approves the quality and food safety system of the supplier.

BRC (British Retail Consortium). This standard published by the union of British supermarket chains, the BRC, requires documented approval to ensure food quality and safety. Retailers include Asda, Tesco and Sainsbury's.

IFS (International Food Standard). This food quality and safety standard is published by the union of German supermarket chains, HDE (Hauptverband des Deutschen Einzelhandels). It has been adopted by the French equivalent, the FCD (Fédération des entreprises du Commerce et de la Distribution). Retailers include Aldi, Lidl and Metro.
What do all the logos represent?
TBA
What is the best way to dispose of the capsule?
The capsule can just be thrown in the normal rubbish receptacle and disposed of normally. there is no need to recycle the capsule.
Can I dispose of the capsule in my own compost pile?
The capsule is designed to break down in a industrial composting plant where the correct temperature and environmental conditions are maintained. They may break down in your own compost pile at home but that depends on the nature of your own composting system.
Is there any difference between "biodegradable" and "compostable"?
People often get "biodegradable" and "compostable" mixed up but they do not mean the same thing. A biodegradable product may be broken down by microorganisms but this does not necessarily imply that the product can be converted into good quality compost.
Biodegradability and compostability rely heavily on the environment where the product is broken down. As each environment (compost, soil, water, …) has different temperatures and microorganisms the speed of the biodegradation process may vary from one site to another.
For example, bioplastics which are biodegradable in an industrial composting plant (the most aggressive atmosphere regime) are not always biodegradable in water or soil, or even in a compost bin in the garden (owing to the lower temperatures).
Our capsule is Biodegradable and compostable.

Environmentally friendly compostable capsules

Tests have shown that the Cap'Mundo bio-degradable capsule made from organic material will compost entirely within approximately 12 weeks of being placed in a industrial composting plant.
