Halo Coffee -FAQs
HALO COFFEE – Compostable Coffee Pods, Intense Flavour!
We are so excited to have HALO Coffee pods available in our store! They won our hearts with their wonderful flavours, but what really sealed the deal for us is their home compostable coffee pods! Too long have been in an eco coffee desert, avoiding pods because they are next to impossible to recycle and hugely wasteful just for the sake of one good cup of coffee! Plus lets not even get into ethical farming and fair trading, yet another minefield surrounding our favourite black beverage! Finally, HALO is here to save the day and give us our much-needed convenient coffee hit, once again!
For those of you picking up some Halo Coffee in store today take a look at these FAQ around how to use the pods and what to expect!
1. Can I use Halo in any machine?
Halo is compatible with your Nespresso®️ Original Home systems. It is NOT compatible with Nespresso®️ Vertuoline, Nespresso®️ Professional, Keurig, Tassimo, Dolce Gusto or Lavazza systems. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any compatibility questions.
2. My capsule is stuck in the machine
Once you use the capsule we recommend you immediately eject it from the machine, as suggested in your machine’s operating instructions. The Halo capsules are made of completely organic, compostable components and therefore may expand slightly when exposed to water or pressure. If the capsule does become stuck, simply use the back of a teaspoon to release.
3. What do I do with used capsules?
Halo coffee pods are home compostable and conform to the EN13432 standard so it doesn’t
matter where you throw them as they will naturally compost within 4 weeks, depending on
atmospheric conditions, whether it be in your home compost bin or landfill. If you are feeling
especially green, try planting some strawberry seeds into your Halo and put it into a plant pot or the garden as it’s a great natural fertiliser.
4. Can I recycle the packaging?
It would have been no use designing the world’s most sustainable coffee capsules if we then wrapped them in layers of toxic materials. So, we didn’t. When your order arrives, you can recycle the outer postal box. Then, when you’re done with everything else – the outer oxygen barrier wrap, Halo box, insert and sticky label can either be thrown in the compost with your used capsules or thrown into the recycling bin.
