Swiss retailer Migros announced yesterday that it will launch a coffee maker system designed to replace capsules that generate thousands of tons of waste around the world each year.

According to the cooperative, the spherical capsules, dubbed “coffee balls,” are fully compostable, unlike the plastic and aluminum containers popularized by rival Nestlé under the Nespresso brand 36 years ago.

Migros says its coffee balls are encased in a thin, flavorless seaweed-based cover that can be discarded with the coffee after use.

According to the company, the CoffeeB system, which also has a special coffee maker, will be rolled out first in Switzerland and France this year, and in Germany in 2023.
