New Recycled Plastic Pod Press

New Recycled Plastic Pod Press

After years of researching, tinkering and development, Crema Joe have crafted something revolutionary. A coffee pod press from hand recycled plastic!

The Perfect Press completely 'closes the loop' allowing coffee pod users to fill and tamp their reusable coffee pods consistently, every time! This unique device takes all the mess and stress out of creating ready-to-brew capsules. You simply place a refillable Nespresso® compatible pod in the base, scoop coffee into the funnel and tamp to finish!


The pod press is made by Australian refillable coffee pod company, Crema Joe, who are on a mission is to reshape the capsule coffee landscape. Unfortunately, the coffee pod sustainability space isn't regulated, with so many businesses and brands making a plethora of wild claims.

In 2018, as part of our ongoing mantra to create better things in a truly better way, we were looking for a local, responsible manufacturing solution for Crema Joe. That was when we first became involved with the Precious Plastic concept. Fast forward to 2021, we started Precious Plastic Melbourne (PPM). 

PPM is a recycling hub where like-minded people are working together to create a circular economy through better outcomes for traditionally 'non-recyclable' plastics. Not only has PPM meant exciting new products in the pipeline for Crema Joe, we're also working within our community to assist individuals and organisations to set up their own plastic recycling workspaces.⁣

To help combat the problem of landfill and ocean waste, each Perfect Press is produced by hand and made entirely of locally sourced, reclaimed plastic bottle tops. Essentially, each Perfect Press is part of a circular economy where waste is reduced as this precious 'resource' or 'commodity' of single-use plastic is given a new life. Handcrafted in Melbourne, the formation of the eco-friendly Perfect Press really is a labour of love - we've always been passionate about reducing our environmental footprint and finding solutions to plastic pollution.

This is what drove us to create a product that is both useful for our amazing reusable capsule community whilst actively converting what was initially destined to be waste into something fresh, new and highly functional. Nothing makes us happier than knowing that each Perfect Press is diverting 25 plastic bottle caps from landfill!

Our aim was to be able to offer a product to all the eco-warriors who have made the switch to reusable brewing and are looking for a simpler, cleaner and more convenient way to prepare their capsules. So for the final exciting feature? The Perfect Press is compatible with most reusable capsule brands! Whether you're a fan of SealPod, Bluecup, WayCap or any other original line Nespresso-compatible capsules that have a 'lip', the Perfect Press is going to be your new best friend.

Whichever brand you use, the Perfect Press will help you achieve a smoother, richer, more robust cup of coffee. By supporting us, you're supporting our mission to turn the tide on plastic waste in Australia - we can't wait for you to experience it for yourself!
