coffee pod, coffee capsules, coffee capsule

These cannot be recycled at home. They are increasingly made solely from aluminium but the coffee grounds inside are difficult to extract. However, some types/brands of coffee pods (and other difficult-to-recycle items) are collected by a company called TerraCycle who recycle them to create new products such as plastic baby bibs, notebook covers and park benches. Alternatively, the pods can go in your general waste.
