To our Amazing Fans,
As of 11 November, we have sold out of our beloved sugarcane pods for the next few WKs. Our home-compostable pod is our 4WKS moonshot and we are working hard at fully cracking them and producing them - start to finish - here in SA. We will keep you posted as to when they are back in stock and online!
At the same time, we are super-proud of 4WKS Caps: our latest innovation that is kind to the planet and thanks to its stronger structural strength, results in a super-consistent, deliciously shot of coffee. Our Cap makes SA's best specialty coffee available in a way that is fresh, convenient + consistent, and helps us to shift the needle in the single-use capsule space - challenging both its reputation for bad taste + huge environmental waste. The taste is blow-away! We are incredibly excited about them, and hope you will be too!
Our Caps are 100% compostable, compatible with Nespresso® and best enjoyed, like all great coffee, in 4WKS! Made from a plant-based bio-material, 4WKS Caps will return to Earth in a commercial composting facility within 3 months (using higher temperatures and humidity). 100% natural, our Cap will still break down in a home compost heap but over a longer time compared to our Pod. We are currently doing rigorous testing on this, and will keep you posted on the results.
In an effort to do more good and not just less harm, we have partnered with local waste heroes, Ywaste, to implement our 4WKS Composting Programme. This means that you will be able to drop off used Caps at our PodShop in Woodstock, or at selected Deluxe, Naked, Rosetta and Terbodore cafés in the Western Cape. Every 4WKS, we will collect all used Caps to ensure their correct disposal, and their return to nutritious soil.
We remain open to any questions you may have and would like to thank you, sincerely, for your support on our journey. It is only with and through you that we are able to achieve our mission of shifting coffee, habits + culture — 4WKS at a time.
Thank you and with love,
Lulu, Daniel + Oliver
