Colombia Organic Coffee - 30 Compostable Pods
Flavor Intensity - 8
All arabica coffees have the same relative levels of caffeine.
Intensity refers to sweetness, acidity, body and finish from 1 to 10.
Compostable 30-pack Colombia Organic coffee pods
Our exclusive, at-home compostable coffee pod is the highest-performing material currently available on the global market for the packaging of coffee pods.
With superior protection that ensures all the volatile compounds of freshly roasted and ground coffee are securely trapped inside the pod for the ultimate coffee experience.
Most eco-materials used to package coffee suffer from the same problem - effusion - leaking via thin, porous paper-based lid materials. That's only going to end in disappointment.
Effusion is where the volatile compounds, such as aroma, will leach through the packaging that fails to protect and preserve essential elements, such as flavour or aroma.
Have you ever placed fresh roasted or ground coffee in a plastic container then sealed the lid - yep, you can still smell the coffee from outside. It's because most resin-based materials, whether they are plastic, polymer or plant-based, all have micro-porous properties.
Unfortunately, it results in rapid staling and degradation of inherent coffee quality that inevitably leads to unsatisfying coffee experiences.
It's why Nespresso pods have always been made using aluminium-metalized materials, previously the only way to offer effective barrier protection.
Until now - we have a game-changing solution after five years of development.
Our eco-pods can provide a 12-month shelf life with the added benefit of composting at home instead of being sent to a commercial composting facility.
Why Organic is always the best option
During farming and processing, certified Organic coffee must undergo inspection to ensure no harmful chemicals, pesticides, or fertilizers are used.
At mycoffeepods, we source only Organic certified raw coffees from Australian-based importers with extensive quality assurance standards. It means we can trust and verify the credentials of our imported green coffees.
The Organic raw coffees are precision roasted in our state-of-the-art Melbourne facility, then carefully ground, degas and converted at our pod plant.
This end-to-end control of the entire process ensures a higher quality than the rest of the pod market, which either imports pre-made pods from overseas or uses one of a handful of 3rd-party Australian pod converters.
Using external converters involves sending roasted coffees off-site for up to a month as it waits for conversion. All delicate and volatile roasted coffee compounds will go stale and risk losing dynamic and vivacious elements we all love about coffee - that wonderful aroma and flavour.
Being able to convert our pods is a game-changer, enabling us to offer
- A more delicious tasting pod with freshness locked in - protecting flavour and aroma.
- We use only 100% arabica, specialty-grade organic coffees we precision roast in-house.
- As one of only a few Australian pod manufacturers, we do everything in-house and, therefore, have unique control over the complex degassing process - it is here that makes all the difference with the pod's performance in brewing.
- Buy direct from the manufacturer and save.
How do fresh roasted pods make a difference in taste and aroma?
Australian coffee drinkers are well-informed about the importance of freshness in coffee. They also have some of the highest standards for demanding better-tasting coffees.
Maximum enjoyment of coffee is only possible with fresh roasted ingredients. When roasted coffee is shipped to another company and waits for conversion, it loses aroma and flavour. That is a broken process for degassing and only leads to inferior product performance.
myCoffeePods use a special flavour-lock base that exceeds all compostable and recyclable pods in protecting vital and delicate flavours, aromas and sweetness.
Customers tell us you can drink our capsule coffee black. It's super sweet.
Our specialty grade, 100% arabica, 100% Organic Colombia, is from the famous Huila region.
An important note regarding the use of images on our website.
There are various types of pods and capsules used in Australia. Still, not all are interchangeable or compatible with every brewing equipment.
Some pods and capsules significantly differ in physical size, shape, usage and performance.
We display pictures and images of coffee pods and capsules on our product pages and throughout our website to represent the physical attributes of the Nespresso-compatible original or classic systems.
We intend to use generic images to assist buyers in obtaining similar visual cues of the product's intended purpose, e.g., a coffee pod. For example, a buyer may use a pod that looks identical to an image on our website.
Some of our pictures contain images of aluminium pods, compostable pods, recyclable pods and polymer pods. There are also a wide variety of styles, colours and shapes.
All images on our website are generic.
Pictures represent the purpose of the product as a Nespresso-compatible pod or capsule suitable for the original or classic systems.
Our pods may appear different to the images shown on our website. Such differences include colours and shape or design. The differences between the images shown on our website pages and the product you receive do not affect the product performance, taste or function.
We reserve the right to change our capsule base, lid material, and colours based on the availability of our raw materials sourced from Europe.
Such changes will not affect the performance of our pods when used in a compatible Nespresso original or classic system.

Arabica versus Robusta
Most coffee pods in the market contain a little or a lot of robusta (even if brands won't admit it).
Robusta generates higher levels of caffeine, but that does not also mean more flavour (caffeine is tasteless). Plain and simple - robusta is never going to taste sweet or delicious.
Instead, robusta tastes like wood, tar, leather, rubber or spice and not that's not so tasty for coffee.
Arabica generates more sweetness and delicious acidity. Indeed, this sweetness and acidity is critical for Australian coffee drinkers adding milk or dairy alternatives to their coffees.
Robusta is grown at lower altitudes where pests are rampant and wider ranges of temperature impact growing conditions. Robusta coffee farmers drown their crops in chemicals to fight off pests.
It's for this critical reason that robusta is never certified as organic.
Our pods are sweet, clean and delicious because we use 100% high-grown, certified organic arabica coffees. And the best part is you can drink them black without sugar.
Organic - a healthier option
Healthy choices should not mean paying a price premium. There is a growing market for customers who appreciate quality and purity over "mass-produced rubbish made with the lowest-cost ingredients".
Commodity-grade coffees are used extensively throughout the coffee pod industry to save costs. Unsurprisingly, those low-grade, cheap coffees also come with real health risks from farming practices relying upon high levels of chemicals - drowning in fertilizers and pesticides.
Our mission has always been to use the best quality and healthiest choices for Australian coffee pod drinkers.
myCoffeePods uses only certified Organic, high-grown specialty-grade arabica coffees that we roast with extreme precision for the best-tasting coffee pod experience.
These coffees also come with the added benefit of being much healthier.
So be kind to your body and consider organic products created with the utmost care and respect.
As one of a small handful of pod makers in Australia, we are also fully integrated - raw ingredients, roasting, grinding, packing, selling and shipping - all in-house. That means we can create a better quality pod at a more competitive price.
Why we do everything in-house
Producing coffee pods is complex and expensive. It's also why there are less than a dozen coffee pod plants in Australia - we are one of them.
At myCoffeePods, we source excellent organic raw coffees roasted on the world's most advanced platform, ensuring accurate taste and quality are consistently maintained. Our specially designed de-gas chambers preserve freshness without losing flavour, precision grinding, filling, sealing, packing, selling and shipping your order fast directly to your door, Australia-wide.
It's an entire lifecycle managed by us with nothing outsourced. It is the only way to control coffee pod quality.
Join us on a journey to better-tasting and healthier coffee pods that are also excellent value.
for perfect taste and aroma
Freshly roasted coffee is a highly volatile food ingredient. It is also challenging to keep stable at ideal or peak conditions for extended periods. When ground, fresh-roasted coffees lose vitality rapidly within 15 minutes. This deterioration or degradation begins when raw coffee is roasted and accelerates quickly after grinding.
The choice of ingredients, style of roasting, de-gassed, stored, ground, packed and sealed is only part of the solution. The physical properties of the pod or capsule base and lid materials (packaging) significantly impact the performance in protecting and preserving delicate flavours and aromas of fresh roasted and ground coffee.
Our patented flavour-lock system can achieve equivalent results to full aluminium, yet with a far lower carbon footprint. Our European-engineered and manufactured packaging materials deliver the highest barrier protection that seals in all the delicious goodness and enjoyment of great-tasting coffee.
Did you know that compostable and recyclable materials used for coffee pods don't fully protect the ground coffee inside the pod from staling? Eco-friendly materials allow aromas to "leech" out via effusion, causing rapid degradation of taste and quality.
Coffee pods have such a small dosage (around 5g) that it is fundamentally essential that every element of the process, including the pod materials, is the best available solution.
We buy the best Organic coffees roasted to perfection, and it's only logical that we should also use the best technology for our pod materials so you can enjoy the sweetest-tasting coffee pods available in Australia.
