We want to bring together something that at first glance does not fit together:
Indulgence at the touch of a button and sustainability.

Can organic coffee from capsules be sustainable?

Pleasure with a clear conscience

With Polaris, UniCaps presents a technologically and materially sophisticated coffee capsule that enables filling, long storage and preparation of great-tasting coffee at the highest level. The oxygen barrier of Polaris is comparable to the oxygen barrier of aluminum capsules and ensures the preservation and subsequent development of coffee aromas, as well as the minimum shelf life of conventional capsules made of plastic or aluminum.

Our second generation bio-capsules (PHA-based) enable faster composting than standard bio-plastic capsule solutions (PLA-based). Moreover, unlike PLA, PHA is also degradable in home compost. PHA is an invention of nature and is naturally produced by the bacterium Bacillus Megaterium. Thus, PHA is 100% from nature.

The greenest capsule on the market

MY COFFEE CUP second generation compostable organic capsule
Organic farming
All our organic coffees come from ecologically sustainable agriculture and are certified organic according to EU standards. The producers of our organic coffees focus first and foremost on healthy soils and an intact ecosystem. Only natural pesticides and fertilizers are used.
Gentle drum roasting
For excellent natural taste, we use state-of-the-art aroma-preserving processes in coffee refinement - from the careful selection of organic Arabica and organic Robusta beans by our experienced coffee sommeliers to gentle drum roasting.
Multi-stage grinding
High-precision grinding of the coffee over three stages enables ideal, uniform extraction of all flavor and aroma substances during preparation.
Filling in environmentally friendly capsules
Our capsules are real geniuses. They consist of mainly biobased raw materials (about 96%), are biodegradable according to the EN 13432 standard and capable of being recycled in industrial compost. The excellent tightness of the capsule ensures a long shelf life, so you can enjoy your organic coffee at any time from all standard Nespresso®³ machines.
"Climate neutral¹ from cultivation to you".
We produce with green electricity and use the waste heat from our machines to generate hot water. We offset climate emissions that we cannot (yet) avoid through ClimatePartner by supporting certified climate protection projects. In this way, we make our products climate-neutral from cultivation to delivery to you and in disposal. You can find more information about the projects in our ClimateID Tracking.
100 % enjoyment with a clear conscience
At the touch of a button, every capsule becomes a delightful taste experience at home. From elegant and complex to strong and full-bodied, our creations offer the whole variety of the coffee world.
Disposal in household waste
Our MY COFFEE CUP products are certified according to the internationally recognized EN 13432 standard for industrial composting. However, since we are already one step ahead of the waste system with our bio-based capsules, the used capsules cannot be recycled in composting plants. However, our capsules are also well-suited for household waste: Due to the high proportion of renewable raw materials, they do not cause any additional climate emissions even when thermally recycled.
Thermal utilization
Thermal recycling is currently still the most ecologically sensible way of recycling our bio-based coffee capsules. During combustion, only the proportion of CO2 is emitted that the raw materials contained have bound during their growth phase. In addition, the capsules can thus also contribute to the conversion of steam into energy and heat.


Thanks to environmentally friendly packaging and certified climate neutrality¹, our products are the perfect combination of convenience and enjoyment with a clear conscience.
