Wake up and smell the more ethical coffee pods

The Foodies Larder Delectable Range coffee

DYK those little pods for coffee machines are made from aluminium and plastic and take anywhere from 150 and 500 years to break down in landfill? That's, er, not good.

One alternative is the Delectable Range range from Exeter coffee house The Foodies Larder, which comprises compostable and biodegradable coffee pods (compatible with Nespresso machines) that disintegrate in a matter of months in council food waste collection bins.

The organic Swiss Water Decaff coffee pods are made 'using an all-natural and 100 per cent chemical-free decaffeination process', says The Foodies Larder, which 'produce a smooth mug of coffee with roasted peanut and cookie dough notes'. Tasty.

There's also the single-origin Peruvian coffee, which is organic, fair trade and Rainforest Alliance certified, and the single-origin, Arabica Fairtrade, organic coffee from the Ethiopian region of Yirgacheffe.

The vegan-approved Delectable Range pods are also packed with ten per cent more coffee than standard Nespresso capsules, says The Foodies Larder.
