Introducing New Biodegradable Coffee Capsule

Australians consume around 2 million coffee capsules per day, with 1.5 million households and businesses owning a capsule machine. Many of us love the convenience of capsules but are increasingly worried about their environmental impact, as the majority of these capsules end up in landfill and take hundreds of years to break down.

To reduce our carbon footprint and to give our customers the choice of an environmentally friendly alternative, Di Bella Coffee is excited to introduce a new biodegradable coffee capsule to our capsule range.
