Capsules compostables végétales Kabioca compatibles Nespresso et Dolce Gusto au milieu de grains de café

Kabioca introduces the first complete solution of plant-based capsules

On August 19, 2019, a little less than four years ago, the first Kabioca plant-based coffee capsules were launched.

As capsule coffee lovers, but concerned about the impact our consumption had on the environment, we wanted to offer a sustainable alternative: an authentic coffee that you would be delighted to taste, organic and ethical.

Since then, thanks to you, several tons of aluminum have been spared.

After the success of our first capsules, we were convinced that it was possible to go even further in reducing the environmental impact of hot beverage capsules. So, as we want to provide you with the best possible alternative, we listened to your feedback and got back to work.

After two years of research and testing, we are proud to introduce you to the first complete solution of plant-based capsules, with not one innovation but two new ranges of capsules.

These efforts have paid off, as our two new ranges have already
been awarded the Yvelines Environment 2022-2023 Prize



Launch of the first Dolce Gusto compatible plant-based capsules


When we looked at the “Hot Drinks” aisles in supermarkets, beyond aluminum, we quickly identified another environmental scourge: plastic capsules. This is particularly true for Dolce Gusto compatible capsules, which represent about 20% of all hot beverage capsules. These capsules are almost exclusively produced from non-recyclable plastic. Every year, the equivalent of 2.2 million plastic bags is thrown away!

That’s why, after a long phase of research and development and numerous test capsules, we are proud to launch the first 60% plant-based Dolce Gusto compatible capsules !
