Espresso Capsule Brewer
The best espresso capsule on Earth… not so hot without an equally good capsule brewer. So we designed and built the best machine out there. Our brewer styles a single shot or americano intuitively, reliably and most importantly, safely.
Small Footprint. 110 Volt. UL-Certified.
Our top-of-the-line Italian capsule filling system is optimized to fill and seal our compostable espresso capsules uniquely.
Grinding is timed to the filler, for ultimate freshness. The ground coffee, enclosed in a nitrogen-filled tube, prevents oxygen from diminishing the flavor, aroma, or freshness.
Our filling machine utilizes AI and boasts a dazzling array of laser sensors, flow meters and scales to fill and tamp each espresso pod precisely and consistently.
But…our dear friend…the real magic is in the seal. Without a good seal, oxygen will inevitably seep in, spoiling the aroma and flavor of even the very best coffee. Our proprietary and customized approach to sealing allows us confidently to apply a 24- month shelf-life to our commercially compostable espresso capsules!
A’s to Your Q’s
What is an espresso capsule?
An espresso capsule is like a K-Cup, but for espresso! Also called an espresso pod, our capsules are single-serve espresso doses, brewed on a special capsule brewer. Metropolis Espresso Capsules are BPI-certified compostable, and are compatible with Nespresso original line machines.*
Is an espresso capsule a K-cup?
Nope! An espresso capsule is not a K-cup and you can’t use a K-Cup machine to brew it.
What machines are your capsules safe to use with?
Use any Nespresso original line machine to brew our capsules. We have a customized machine that’s perfect for most commercial, in-room and home applications.*
Talk to our sales team at firstname.lastname@example.org and they can fill you in on your options.
What is the shelf-life of your capsules?
Due to our industry-best seal, our capsules have a shelf life of 24-months.
What about commercial composting for my used espresso capsules?
Our line of BPI and CMA-certified compostable espresso capsules can be composted by any commercial composting facility. Just put them with your regular compost for pick up and voila! Plant food!

How can I customize compostable espresso capsules for my business or brand?
We offer color coded capsules, printed boxes and/or bespoke coffee blends. Talk to our sales team at email@example.com to learn about customization options.
Can I brew drip coffee with an espresso capsule?
Yes! Just program your machine to brew more volume. We’ve gotten excellent results brewing up to 5oz from a single dose. A single, elegant solution for both espresso and drip coffee drinkers.
