L’OR Espresso capsules are made from aluminium to provide you with the best espresso. Aluminium is known to effectively preserve the aroma and the flavours of the coffee and now enables you to enjoy the intense taste of a L’OR espresso for a unique experience.

We suggest that you send the capsules in the box in which you received them. But you can also use any box that you have, providing it can contain about 100 capsules (the minimum amount for sending). Simply select your box, place a plastic bag inside to avoid leaks, place your L’OR capsules in the box, stick the label on the package and organise for it to be collected by calling the telephone number in the e-mail sent with the label. The size restrictions are 50x50x40cm with a maximum weight of 20kg.
Do I have to wash my used capsules to get rid of the coffee before sending them?
You do not need to wash the capsules before sending them to be recycled. During processing, the coffee grounds will be separated from the rest of the capsule and composted.
Are there any L’OR Espresso capsules that cannot be sent for recycling?

Why is there a compulsory minimum weight for sending L’OR capsules to be recycled?
We want to limit transport for environmental reasons. Sending bigger quantities at once is better for the environment. We therefore ask you to send a minimum weight of 2kg which corresponds to about 200 capsules.
