UK-based coffee roaster and supplier Lost Sheep Coffee has released a new range of compostable coffee capsules made from wood.

Compatible with Nespresso coffee machines, the airtight capsules are made from lignin, a substance derived from wood bark and a waste product of the paper processing industry.
Lost Sheep Coffee claims that the capsules will compost to nothing in a matter of weeks, and the capsules themselves have been certified 100% compostable by product certification company TUV Austria.
Available in two variants: Smooth Journey and Funky Camper. Coffee used for the capsules is made from single-origin arabica coffee beans sourced from Brazil, which are then hand-roasted at Lost Sheep Coffee’s roastery in Whitstable, Kent.

The company claims that the 100% plastic free capsules can guarantee the freshness of the coffee for over 12 months despite the absence of plastic seals and glue. (FoodBev)
