The Australian-style specialty coffee roaster is elevating the at-home coffee ritual with zero waste pods that perfectly replicate the quality and flavor of the coffee served in its cafes
Bluestone Lane, Australian-inspired specialty coffee roaster, and café lifestyle brand, launches a new line of Nespresso® compatible pods, available in four signature roasts. The new 100% biodegradable and compostable capsules demonstrate the brand’s ongoing commitment to offering sustainable, environmentally-friendly coffee products. Known for its smooth, well-balanced coffee, espresso and specialty beverages, Bluestone Lane created this line of Nespresso® compatible capsules in response to demand from its locals after a brief test run in 2020. Bluestone Lane is the first and only boutique cafe to offer coffee pods on par with the quality of its cafe beverage offerings.
Now, locals who frequent Bluestone Lane locations in the country’s most trendsetting neighborhoods can easily recreate the signature Flat White and perfect Iced Latte, as well as any other favorite hot and cold espresso drinks, in the comfort of their homes. The new capsules are available in the same roasts served in Bluestone Lane cafes nationwide. Bluestone Lane capsules are available for purchase in all cafes nationally, as well as online at BluestoneLane.com.
“Simply put, these are the best tasting Nespresso pods on the market! We took about 18 months to develop pods that perfectly match the balanced yet complex flavor 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.”
In a recent customer survey, locals visiting Bluestone Lane cafes report drinking coffee mostly at home but also from cafes, and the majority use a Nespresso® original machine when brewing at home. Locals who subscribe to receive capsules on an ongoing basis will also receive a free coffee every week, redeemable at all Bluestone Lane Cafe locations.
The new compostable capsules are environmentally friendly, and all Bluestone Lane roasts are a blend of meticulously, direct-sourced beans ethically traded with the coffee farmers who grow them. With just a push of a button, consumers can enjoy perfectly brewed Bluestone Lane Espresso at home, including the following signature roasts:
- Maverick: Bluestone Lane’s signature espresso blend is the quintessential Australian coffee, with a full-bodied, well-structured subtlety that pairs equally well with milks or to enjoy straight black. The Maverick blend achieved a Golden Bean Award at the world’s largest coffee roasters competition. Tasting notes include cocoa, clove, and honeycomb.
- Bayside: A light and smooth roast that’s made for easy drinking anytime of the day. Tasting notes include citrus, nougat, and toffee.
- Riptide: A darker blend that’s strong yet complex. Tasting notes include dark cocoa and brown sugar.
- Decaf: Perfect for when you crave the cup but not the kick, a decaf espresso blend is full-bodied. Tasting notes include caramel, chocolate, and roasted peanuts.
Bluestone Lane Nespresso capsules retail for $9.80 per box of 10 capsules & $55 for a sampling order of 60 capsules. To purchase and subscribe, visit BluestoneLane.com.
