The infinite journey of Nespresso capsules helps preserve your Grand Cru coffee - over and over again.
We use aluminium for the capsules protecting our Grands Crus to ensure you get the freshest cup of quality coffee every time. It provides the best protection against oxygen, light and humidity, which can really affect taste.
But that’s just the start of it — aluminium is also 100 percent and infinitely recyclable, meaning Nespresso coffee capsules start as and become new aluminium products once recycled. What else? Check it out below.

The best way to protect the delicate taste of a Nespresso Grand Cru
Aluminium requires up to 95% less energy to recycle than to produce primary metals.

Our capsules can be recycled into drink cans, bicycles, computers, the coloured side panels of our Pixie machines and new capsules.
86% of the carbon footprint of aluminium occurs between mining and production.
100% of our Club Members will have access to a convenient recycling solution by 2020
