Who says you have to choose between delicious coffee and protecting the planet? Have the best of both worlds with these compostable and biodegradable coffee capsules from Tripod Coffee
On those days when we feel like hitting the snooze button too many times – let’s face it, that’s almost every day – what gets us jumping out of bed is a damn good coffee. And if you’ve got a Nespresso machine, it’s almost like magic – just pop in a pod and press a button to brew a strong and delicious espresso in seconds.
While the convenience of single-serve coffee is appealing, , we just can’t justify the amount of waste that the plastic and aluminium casing produces. This is where Tripod Coffee comes in. The Australian company has created an affordable line-up of compostable and biodegradable Nespresso-compatible coffee capsules that are all sourced and traded fairly, artisan-roasted and of course, absolutely tasty. Here are some of our top picks available in Singapore.

For an energising shot
For a pick-me-up that packs a punch, opt for the Red Fedora ($6.50 for a pack of 10), an Ethiopian blend. A perfect harmony of citrus overtones and earthy spiciness, this one’s for those who want a small espresso or ristretto shot to perk up their senses quickly – or for those who are running late for work but still want to get their caffeine fix.
For a creamy coffee
If you can’t live without a generous splash of milk with your Joe (we feel you), trying making your daily latte with Tripod Coffee’s most popular blend, the Blue Beret ($6.50 for a pack of 10). The bold Central American blend consists of sweet notes of raisin, spice and citrus, with a smooth cocoa finish – making it totally versatile as an espresso, long black or even cappuccino.
For a supersized brew
A small shot of espresso just not cutting it for your coffee craving? Go for the Black Panama ($6.50 for a pack of 10) and try it as a lungo – with more coffee packed into the capsule, it makes a perfect short or long pour. The palate-pleasing tones of bittersweet chocolate and maple syrup of the Panamanian blend will make you want to take your time with it.
For a powerful boost
Bust out this potent blend if you have a hectic day ahead of you. The robust Grey Gaucho ($6.50 for a pack of 10), a South American blend, features notes of savoury cedar and spice and boasts a strength rating of five out of five – how’s that for a strong brew?
For organic java
Calling all health junkies who are on the hunt for organic coffee capsules – look no further than Tripod Coffee’s Green Gatsby ($7.50 for a pack of 10). Hailing from Papua New Guinea, the blend consists of notes of plum, chocolate and honey, balanced with a subtle volcanic acidity. Best of all? It’s 100% certified organic.
If you just can’t decide on which to go for, start with Tripod Coffee’s Sample Pack ($32), which includes 10 capsules of each of the five flavours. For the true caffeine addicts, make a beeline for the Family Pack ($120), which includes a whopping 200 capsules in total.
