Zarraffa’s Coffee has launched 100-per-cent biodegradable and compostable Okapi coffee capsules so customers of the cafe chain can enjoy its products at home.

The capsules, made on the Gold Coast, come with African Masai, Decaf and a new single-origin flavour, Ethiopian Djimmah.

Zarraffa’s capsules are created from sugarcane and sugar beet and will compost or break down after 10 weeks – a far shorter lifespan than the billions of plastic coffee capsules discarded every year, which Zarraffa’s says will take between 150 and 500 years to break down in landfill.

“As an Aussie-owned coffee company, we’re excited to be able to offer a more environmentally friendly option that’s made locally on the Gold Coast for all of our coffee lovers at home,” said Kenton Campbell, Zarraffa’s Coffee founder and MD.

The capsules are sold in packs of 10 for $9.95 and are compatible with original Nespresso coffee machines.
