Episode 36: The future of coffee capsules

On the podcast this week we’re exploring the multi-billion dollar coffee capsule industry, to uncover the opportunities for pods and capsules, and understand why many specialty coffee players have recently entered the space. 

In conversations with Jason Webber, B2C Commercial Director, Nespresso UK, Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood, Founder, Colonna Coffee and Adrienne Roberts, CEO, Allpress Espresso, we’ll examine the long-term potential of this rapidly growing segment and ask whether coffee capsules are a threat or a complement to coffee shops and home espresso machines.
