We use Sustainable Coffee Pods in guestrooms Across Our Collection

As part of our wider move to be a sustainable luxury hotel group, we now work with Cru Kafe to supply our in-room coffee pods across all of our hotels.

Cru Kafe create plastic free coffee pods. Their recyclable, aluminium capsules guarantee absolute coffee freshness but the pods can be endlessly recycled, unlike single use plastic or even bioplastic capsules.

We are delighted to be able to work with Cru Kafe for several other reasons that all demonstrate their ingrained commitment to sustainability in coffee.

Cru coffee farmers
