About Us

Meet the Pod and the Star

Hi! We are Mark (The Pod) and Kirsten (The Star), an Australian and a New Zealander living in Sydney, married for some years now. We're passionate about the environment, people and animals,  design, and coffee! Mark has been a designer pretty much forever. He designed Australia's iconic music award, the Aria,  in 1990 and has been designing for products and marketing ever since. 

We want to do what adds value, gives people freedom, and helps the environment. And we want to leave a world for our kids and their kids, that is improved in as many ways possible. We're driven by good technology, design, and innovation where creativity meets purpose.

We started Pod Star due our own love of coffee. We had a Nespresso machine in our office and wanted the choice to use our favourite coffee. We were alarmed to learn of the waste associated with single-use pods, and this drove us to find a solution. 

But it doesn't stop just at the solution, we use padded envelopes made from recycled newspapers to pack your order, our courier is carbon neutral and our packaging has no laminate so can be recycled. 

Join us on our journey as we try and make an ecological dent on waste.
