4WKS , Compostable Coffee Pods
Shifting Coffee, Culture and Habits.
The coffee culture in Cape Town is undeniable. Cape Town has some of the best roasteries and baristas. There is a coffee shop on almost every corner. Coffee is so ingrained in my daily life, that my day doesn’t start without a hot brew. A few years ago, we purchased a Nespresso™ machines. which we loved but the novelty wore off when I saw all of the coffee pods that were being tossed in garbage.
Soooo I did a happy dance when I found out about 4WKS. 4WKS produces compostable coffee pods that fit a Nespresso™ machines..
Coffee pods that have the best freshly roasted coffee but are specially designed to decompose in your home composter.
Made from sugarcane and designed for a home compost heap, take 4 weeks to start breaking down and in 2 months will have decomposed!
4WKS have partnered with some of Cape Towns best micro-roasters : Deluxe Coffeeworks, Naked Coffee, Terbodore Coffee Roaster and Rossetta Roastery.
The coffee pods work exactly the same way a Nespresso™ Pod. would work.
Did you know coffee grounds are good for the soil and plants.
