The world of coffee has become a bit of an eco headscratcher at the moment. With reusable cups in the age of Coronavirus not fit for purpose, we are forced to make do with whatever the takeaway coffees handed over to us by cafes come in (some cups are biodegradable some not).
Most are making do at home, feeding their spiraling caffeine addictions with the Aeropress, dripper, or cafetiere. For those without the time, the inclination, or the knack to make coffee in that way, the coffee pod is the go-to.
The problem here is that compostable options are thin on the ground, so many are making do with the heavy plastic casing or battling it out refilling the reusable ones. Luckily Dublin roasters 3FE have launched their own coffee pods, which are fully compostable.
Filled with Kiriga from Kenya, which 3FE use in their instant coffee and Nitro coffee cans. The pods which retail at €6.50 for a sleeve of 10 are compatible with the Nespresso Original and the Opal One coffee machines.
The pods are available from the 3FE website and in their shops on Grand Canal Street Lower and Sussex Terrace.
