HOW GOOD IS THE COFFEE?
We know Australians take their coffee seriously. When you pop that pod into your machine, you need to trust the coffee that pours out of it. So we’ve teamed up with Australia’s best coffee roaster — an award-winning coffee connoisseur — to make sure every cup of Community Pod coffee is as delicious as you want and expect it to be.
WILL YOUR PODS FIT MY COFFEE MACHINE?
Yes, we’ve spent a lot of time designing our pods so they will fit into the coffee machines currently available. We have Nespresso Compatible & Lavazza Blue Compatible Capsules/Pods available.
Nespresso Pixie & Inissia Range is best for our pods.
We recommend the latest machines give the best result in coffee quality.
Please note: For the best performance for our pods please release pod from every cup made a rinse before each cup.
This will give you a quality coffee as well and the performance of the machine.
I DON’T HAVE A COFFEE MACHINE, DO YOU SELL THEM?
Yes! We have a range of coffee machines available to suit any budget.
DO YOU HAVE DIFFERENT STRENGTHS AND FLAVOURS OF COFFEE?
Yes, Community Pod is committed to giving you that perfect cup of coffee, every time. So whether you prefer a particular bean or an extra strong brew, we will have a pod to suit you. Our pod packaging has clear and simple labeling to make selecting the right pod easy.
HOW ARE THE COFFEE GROUNDS COLLECTED FOR RECYCLING?
Community Pod and Life Cykel have an amazing limited cafe pick up service that turns coffee waste into mushrooms!
WHO IS LIFE CYKEL?
Life Cykel is an Australian company that collects coffee grounds from local cafes and turns them into mushroom compost. We’ve teamed up with them to ensure Community Pod’s environmental impact is minimal — including generating as close to ‘zero waste’ as possible and having a low carbon footprint. Find out more about them here.
HOW MUCH MONEY DOES COMMUNITY POD GIVE TO CAUSE?
Up to 10% of every purchase of Community Pod beans and pods automatically goes to the not-for-profit organisations our customers choose at the point of transaction.
CAN I DONATE TO A CHARITY NOT REGISTERED WITH YOUR SITE?
We work tirelessly to do the right thing by our customers, especially where their donations are concerned. If your preferred not-for-profit isn’t registered on Community Pod, either reach out to them and ask them to register or let us know and we will invite them to join.
DOES IT COST TO REGISTER OUR CHARITY/NOT-FOR-PROFIT?
No, registration is completely free.
DOES MY CHARITY GET THE ENTIRE DONATION OR DOES SOME GO TO ADMINISTRATION?
Your nominated charity gets the entire donation. Any transaction costs are absorbed by Community Pod because we know your favourite not-for-profit needs all the money it can get.
HOW DO I DONATE TO A CAUSE
Once you have selected your coffee for purchase, proceed to the Checkout and simply choose your Cause from the dropbox provided.
WHY IS THERE A WRAP AROUND THE NESPRESSO COMPATIBLE POD?
The wrap is to secure the freshness of the coffee. As we have specially designed holes in our pods to get the best quality coffee extraction.
Our wraps are currently being tested with a new bio degradable material. We expect to release this very soon!
HOW DO I RECYCLE MY BIODEGRADABLE PODS?
Our Nespresso compatible pods are 100% biodegradable, 100% compostable & 100% made form vegetables.
You can simple place the pods in your green waste bin, your rubbish (preferably not in plastic bags) or the best way is through your own home compost.
The pods take 180 days to break down or even as low as 90 days in a warm compost environment!
