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.
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.
