Nespresso plans to launch home compostable paper-based coffee capsules next spring, initially in Switzerland and France “Blick” he reported. Four new blends will be available, including organic coffee, Nespresso CEO Guillaume Le Cunff explains in the paper. 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 paper capsules for three years.” Nespresso coffee from an aluminum capsule will continue to exist. “The customer should decide what is right for them.”

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