The coffee grounds are used as natural fertilizer for the Lavaux vineyards.
It's amazing that my favourite everyday coffee also helps my vineyard to grow. The coffee grounds extracted from Nespresso capsules are an excellent natural energy source. In a compost centre near Lausanne (in the Vaud region), the coffee grounds are transformed into high-quality fertilizer, which nourishes the soil of my vineyard in Lavaux and protects it against erosion. As soon as you bring your capsules to a collection point or use the Recycling at Home service, you are helping a Nespresso Grand Cru to become another Grand Cru.
