Nespresso and Caran d’Ache have teamed up to present this new 849 limited edition ballpoint pen made using the aluminum from Nespresso recycled coffee pod capsules. This exclusive writing instrument was born of the encounter between two iconic Swiss companies. In 2015, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Nespresso’s commitment to recycling its aluminum coffee pod capsules, the company launched its Second Life project to breathe new life into its used pod capsules through a range of iconic Swiss products.

Every year, a capsule color is selected to decorate the product parts of the Second Life collection. In 2018, the “Dharkan” capsule is called on to lend its dark blue color to the 849.
