The Brand Story
Founded in Singapore, Pod Labs is a brand that serves ready-to-drink beverages in Nespresso® compatible capsules for homes, offices and restaurants.
Co-founded by two passionate coffee and tea connoisseurs, the business was brewed up as an answer to the endless search for traditional Singapore coffee and tea Nespresso® compatible capsules. This was on the back of feedback from other coffee and tea aficionados who enjoy both traditional “Kopi” and “Teh” as well as western offerings.
After receiving an Enterprise Singapore grant and getting accepted into the esteemed NUS Enterprise startup incubation programme, we embarked on a fruitful (and painful!) year long R&D process. This led to us developing the first of its kind “Kopi-O” and “Teh-O” Nespresso® compatible capsules. As of 2018, we are currently the only company selling such Nespresso® compatible “Kopi-O” and “Teh-O” capsules.
Our aim is to allow consumers the chance to enjoy high quality traditional Singaporean “Kopi-O” and “Teh-O” from the comfort of their home or office, without the need to track down the nearest “kopitiam”. Our Nespresso® compatible “Kopi-O” and “Teh-O” capsules invoke a sense of nostalgia and allow users to enjoy the traditional flavours so familiar to Singaporeans.
Separately, we also developed 100% Arabica Nespresso® compatible capsules which has been specially curated by Italian roasters, who are the world leading authorities on espresso drinks.
