Forty billion: that’s the estimated number of single-use coffee pods that end up in landfills every year. It’s a staggering amount of plastic waste; if the pods were placed end-to-end, that’s enough to wrap around the Earth 11 times. This massive global problem is what has driven the team at NEXE Innovations to develop a more sustainable, guilt-free way to start off your morning. All 6 of our coffee roasts are available in fully compostable single serve capsules that deliver convenience, great taste and full compostability.
After all the work we put into making our Nespresso-compatible, plant-based NEXE pod, we weren’t about to put just any coffee inside — it had to be perfect, inside and out. That’s why we worked with Jason Rennie, formerly of Ethical Bean, to help develop our signature dark roast blend. After a year looking for just the right combination of beans, we’re confident that we have the best coffee for the best capsule.
The beans are ground and packaged at our Canadian facility and sealed for freshness in the NEXE pod, one of the world’s only officially Nespresso-compatible capsules that are biodegradable in your city’s composting facility.

Established in 2012, the Kanyon Mountain Coffee Farm is owned and operated by Ato Esmael and his family. Situated in the southern part of Ethiopia, in the Oromia region about 320 miles from the capital city of Addis Ababa, Ato started his farm with the aim of producing high quality coffee, in a socially and environmentally responsible way. The farm grows different heirloom varietals that are processed and washed by hand.
The Ketiara Cooperative was established in 2009 by Mrs. Ramah, who wanted to bring better pay and greater rights to the small family farms in the Aceh region of Indonesia. The co-op began with 37 coffee traders and farmers and has since grown to nearly 2,000 members, becoming one of the most successful cooperatives in the country and one of the very few organizations led by a woman. The cooperative grows Bourbon, Typica, Caturra and Catimor varietals.
