Nespresso plans to launch home compostable paper-based coffee pods next spring, initially in Switzerland and France. “Blick” reported. Four new blends will be available, including an organic coffee, Nespresso CEO Guillaume Le Cunff explains in the newspaper. The new paper capsules should be compatible with existing original Nespresso coffee machines.

This is not a reaction to the Migros coffee balls, as Le Cunff says in an interview: “We have been working on the paper capsules for three years.” Nespresso coffee from the aluminum capsule will continue to exist. “The client must decide what is best for him.”

The new home compostable coffee pods should initially only work in the Nespresso Original system. In the next two years, the new paper capsules will also be available for Vertue and Nespresso Professional systems, as Blick writes. Production will continue to be at Orbe VD.
