Yes, your machine warranty should not be dependent on the type of pods used. If you have any concerns, please refer to the manufacturer’s warranty information that came with your machine purchase or contact the manufacturer directly.
Our pods are made from plant based materials so sometimes they can swell after use, particularly if you've been making a few coffees in a short period. But not to worry, simply pop them out gently by pushing down with your finger or a spoon and they will dislodge. This won't damage your machine.
All our pods come in completely airtight bags with a one way valve which, as you can smell, releases the C02 over time. In unopened bags, our pods will last up to 18 months and still provide a full fresh flavour - expiry dates are on the back for reference.
We recommend using your pods within 30 days of opening the bag however, to ensure a great coffee experience.
All our pods are 100% Biodegradable. So you can simply throw them away guilt free. Alternatively, you can pop them in your compost at home and let the microbes do the work - rates of breakdown in home compost can vary significantly and can take longer than industrially set conditions. You can also put your used pods in the green council bin and they will be commercially treated along with the rest of your green waste.
Your pods already come in the ideal storage bag, which can be resealed after opening and also provides the perfect dark environment inside. So storage is easy, your bags of pods will be equally happy resplendent on the kitchen bench or tucked away in the cupboard - the choice is yours!
The simple answer is we aren't! We do however love the ingenuity and convenience of the Nespresso® system, and decided to make even more yummy pods that work perfectly in Nespresso® machines.
It's important to note Nespresso® is a registered trademark of Société des Produits Nestlé S.A. and neither that company nor its affiliates have manufactured or endorsed our product or brand in any way. The Pod Lab Pty Ltd is not affiliated with Société des Produits Nestlé S.A.
Unfortunately, given we want to ensure our pods stay as fresh as possible we've selected high quality foil lined bags with one-way valves to regulate the release of C02. At this stage, these bags are not recyclable however we are looking into alternative products that will be. Watch this space...
Our pods have been carefully manufactured to work well with almost all Nespresso® machines, and the extraction rates (the length of time taken to pour) should be relatively consistent with other pod brands in the market.
Of course given coffee is not an exact science, there may be some variability with different machines, or indeed between our blends.
As a guide, we recommend an extraction time of around 20 seconds to give the optimal shot of coffee from our pods.
Ultimately, we suggest you test and learn until you arrive at the extraction that best suits your preference.
