SUSTAINABILITY AND CERTIFICATIONS
All the K-fee® System, Espresto coffees are UTZ-certified. When you buy UTZ-certified products, you are helping build a better future. UTZ stands for sustainable farming and better opportunities for farmers, their families and our planet. The UTZ programme enables farmers to learn better farming methods, improve working conditions, and take better care of their children and the environment. Through the UTZ programme, farmers grow better crops, generate more income, and create better opportunities, while safeguarding the environment and securing the earth’s natural resources.

All K-fee® System products, including coffee, tea, milk, chocolate, and tea latte, are Halal-certified according to Islamic jurisdiction.
All the K-fee® System, Espresto coffee capsules are suitable for vegans. The milk-based capsules (Crema Latte, Chai Latte, Chocolatte, Cappuccino and Rooibos Cappuccino), contain milk or milk products (whey powder, skimmed milk powder) and are suitable for lacto-vegetarians.
Fairtrade is an alternative approach to conventional trade and is based on a partnership between producers and consumers. When farmers can sell on Fairtrade terms, it provides them with a better deal and improved terms of trade. This allows them the opportunity to improve their lives and plan for their future. Fairtrade offers consumers a powerful way to reduce poverty through their everyday shopping. When a product carries the Fairtrade mark, it means the producers and traders have met Fairtrade standards. The K-fee® Espresto Chocolatte is produced from cocoa sourced from Fairtrade farmers.

Unlike coffee machines that use boiler systems or kettles, the K-fee® – Your System capsule machine uses thermoblock technology, which only heats up the water that is being used to prepare the beverages. The machine also switches off automatically after 5 minutes of not being used. This reduces the energy consumption of your K-fee® – Your System capsule machine. The machine consumes considerably less power (<0.5 W) than it does in operating mode.
K-fee® Espresto capsules are produced from plastic that can be recycled. Once the capsules are emptied, they can simply be discarded with the rest of your recyclable plastics. For more detailed instructions, refer to our FAQ section.
