Lost Sheep Coffee Launches Capsule Made From Wood

The World’s First Entirely Compostable air-tight Nespresso-compatible Speciality coffee capsule launches. [caption id="attachment_11071" align="alignright" width="225"] Lost Sheep Coffee is launching its luxury single origin direct trade coffee in plant-based capsules that are certified biodegradable, compostable and, crucially, air tight for superior freshness.[/caption] Using the latest advancements in composability technology, the new capsules will be made predominantly from wood bark - or Lignin - a waste product of the paper industry. Other renewable raw materials used in the making include natural occurring plant-based proteins, starches and clucose made up the biopolymer structure of the capsule. As it is 100% natural the product can compost to absolutely nothing in a matter of weeks. “We know our customers want the convenience of being able to brew a really quality cup of coffee at home but without the guilt of chucking more plastic into land fill. So it was imperative to the Lost Sheep Coffee team that we were able to deliver our exceptional quality coffee at home in a format that is entirely compostable. “Until recently, compostable capsules had a very short shelf life as the coffee inside would go stale. Without plastic or glue it is incredibly difficult to create an air tight seal over the product. After extensive research and development our new capsules achieve a level of oxygen impermeability which enables Lost Sheep Coffee to guarantee a minimum shelf life of 12months. Says Stuart Wilson, Founder of Lost Sheep Coffee. “This is coffee well worthy of preservation. 100% Brazilian farmed coffee beans, shipped over to the UK and roasted in our Whitstable roastery. The pods are available in two varieties for every day drinking and curious connoisseurs:” Smooth Journey (10 x 5.5g pods): “Your Daily Coffee.” This speciality coffee is described as tasting of smooth chocolate fudge body with a light hazelnut finish. RRP: from £3.95 Funky Camper (10 x 5.5g pods): “Your Curious Coffee.” This speciality coffee is described as tasting of sweet Irish cream with a rich body and mulled winter fruits. RRP: from £3.95 Lost Sheep Coffee’s new 100% compostable Nespresso compatible coffee pod range will be available in a one of a kind custom designed dodecahedron box, which have been designed to stand out on the shelf with its unique design. The shape, design and branding is incredibly eye-catching encouraging buyers to interact with it. To match the green credentials of the pods the outer packaging is also environmentally friendly and 100% recyclable. “The continuous line drawing on the packaging is directly connected to the journey of Lost Sheep Coffee and depicts various defining moments during our travels and the journey that led to Lost Sheep Coffee today. The small piaggio ape van on the cover is actually a picture of where Lost Sheep started, it is the very first van we ever traded from,” comments Wilson. Available to retailers from mid-March.
