The CPS® Consortium

What is CPS®?

® (Coffee Pod Standard) is a set of standards adopted by The CPS® Consortium ensuring the quality of coffee pods and the machines
used to brew coffee pods. The CPS® coffee pod standard trademark on coffee pod machines and coffee pod packaging enables the consumer and the distribution chain to identify the compatibility between the two products and therefore be reassured in their choice. This international industrial standard is based upon the use of single-serve coffee pod machines and single-serve coffee pods of various brands and models which are compatible with one another and available in a number of price ranges.

The notion of freedom of choice and guarantee of quality may be attained by simply finding and combining both CPS
® trademarks: one being found on the coffee pod machine and the other being found on the single-serve coffee pod packaging.

Applying the CPS
® standard benefits? 

  • the consumer, who requires transparency and freedom of choice in terms of brands and models in the various price ranges and
