Bluestone Lane has launched a range of Nespresso-compatible coffee pods amid rising customer demand for the at-home coffee format. The US café brand said a recent survey had revealed the majority of its customers use a Nespresso original machine when brewing coffee at home.
The new range consists of four varieties, including a decaf option, with the pods 100% biodegradable and compostable.
“We took about 18 months to develop pods that perfectly match the balanced yet complex flavour of the espresso served in Bluestone Lane cafes so that our locals can enjoy their favorite Bluestone Lane roasts with just the push of a button,” said Nick Stone
, Bluestone Lane Founder and CEO.
“Our goal is to continue to become a household name, and these new capsules enable us to expand the reach of our award-winning coffee beyond our cafe markets as we continue to grow our footprint nationwide,” Stone added.

Nestlé-owned company posted revenues of $1.7bn
