If you can’t get enough of Starbucks coffee then you’ll be thrilled to hear that Starbucks has announced the launch of a range of Starbucks Espresso Capsules compatible with Nespresso machines in South Africa. The new espresso capsules are available in Starbucks stores in Johannesburg and Pretoria and will allow coffee lovers the opportunity to enjoy the same delicious coffee at home as they do in store.

With a range of four Starbucks espressos available to try including classic Espresso Roast, Colombia, Kenya, and Guatemala Antigua the range is sure to excite Starbucks fans. And, if you’re worried about the impact your coffee habit will have on the environment then you’ll also be glad to hear the introduction of the range also coincides with the introduction of a recycling programme for the capsules. Starbucks South Africa have partnered with Waste Plan, a national on-site waste management company that specialises in recycling and the reduction of waste to landfill.

Starbucks South Africa have partnered with Waste Plan, a national on-site waste management company that specialises in recycling and the reduction of waste to landfill. Customers will be able to recycle their used capsules by collecting a free recycling bag from their local Starbucks store when purchasing their capsules. This bag can be filled with up to 20 used capsules, before being returned to a Starbucks store. The used capsules will be distributed to one of Waste Plan’s partners to recycle in the production of other products.

The new capsules will be priced at R95 for a pack of 10 capsules. For more information, please visit the Starbucks South Africa website
