What goes into our milk pods?

Can the pods for Dolce Gusto® be recycled?

Yes, the pods for Dolce Gusto® can easily be recycled. Our pods are made of polyethylene, which is a plastic material often used in the food industry. Polyethylene can be reused for production of plastic bags and other plastic items. All you have to do is to empty the pods from coffee after use. The used coffee remains can be added to your food recycling bin or compost heap, and the cleaned capsule can then be added to your household plastic recycling. If you choose not to recycle, the pods only produce CO2 and water when incinerated.

Do Real Coffee offer Fairtrade or organic coffee in the Dolce Gusto® pods?

No – it does not conflict with any law. It is 100% legal, because our design differs from the original, although remains compatible with your Dolce Gusto® machine.

We at Real Coffee believe that competition is good, and guarantees the consumer a wider selection of coffee capsules at competitive prices.
