DECAF - TASTING NOTES
Zesty orange is perfectly balanced with a brown sugar sweetness — all that you love in an expertly crafted coffee, without the caffeine.
One pack contains 10 pods.
- Compostable pods - plastic free
- Letterbox friendly - recyclable packaging
- For use with pod machines that also accept Original style Nespresso® capsules.
El Yalcon is decaffeinated using the natural ‘Sugar Cane process’. This involves the coffee being immersed in water with a natural solvent that is found in sugar cane which extracts caffeine from green coffee. This results in a smooth, creamy body that is delicious enough to surprise anyone who thinks decaf specialty coffee can't taste great.
- Producer: 23 Smallholder farms
- Variety: Caturra, Castillo, Colombia
- Process: Sugar Cane
How to compost pods
Our pods are certified for commercial composting, where they'll take six weeks to break down in a standardised certified system. Whilst they will break down in home compost, this will take longer, depending on factors like the size and makeup of your compost heap, the temperature and other conditions. Our pods will still break down if they end up in a land-fill system but will take a bit longer.
Check with your local council for their compost guidelines.

Amazing tasting speciality coffee in every pod: roasted by our experts in London, we’ve crammed over two decades of experience in sourcing and roasting the world’s best coffee into these.
We have been buying from the La Plata area of Huila, Colombia for 3.5 years, directly impacting the lives of 36 small and medium sized coffee producers and their families in that time. We asked the farmers what they thought we should call this coffee and El Yalcon was suggested as it is the indigenous name of the La Plata area.
Can I use Ozone Coffee Pods in my machine?
Yes, Ozone Coffee Pods are compatible with any machine that accepts the Original style Nespresso® capsules. Please note; they are not compatible with the Vertuo-style machines.
What do I do with the used coffee capsules?
Our coffee pods are 100% plastic-free capsules and can be added to your food-waste for composting in commercial facilities. Check with your local council on their food-waste compost and collection guidelines. If your local council does not accept in your food waste collection, they will break down naturally as compost in your usual waste collection.
Can I recycle the coffee pod packaging?
Yes - our pod packaging is FSC accredited paper that is certified recyclable.
How long do the coffee pods last?
Our pods will taste great if stored in a cool dry place for 12 months from their packing date.
How do I brew these coffee pods best?
Most Nespresso® machines come with two brew settings, one for a short/intense shot, and one for a longer brew.
Whilst our pods can make good coffee drinks with these two options, they can be made even better with a small adjustment to the water quantity, which you can program by following instructions within your machine’s manual.
Most machines are programmable by holding the brew button down whilst brewing and releasing when your desired quantity is achieved. To be super geeky (and match how we refine our pod machines), you can do this with scales. We aim for a 28-30g pod weight for a great textured and intense espresso. A more traditional filter style coffee can be achieved by brewing to a 100g weight with your long brew button.
How do these differ from supermarket brands?
Unlike some supermarket brands, we use premium, single origin specialty coffee, roasted in London to Ozone Coffee’s high quality assessment standards.
