As you may know we didnt like Nespresso capsules very much in the past. We didnt like the waste and its impact on the environment (estimated 13000 pieces of capsules are used every minute in the whole world), insufficinet technology and above all - the limited coffee selection for capsules available (Nespresso owned the patent). When the patent expired the whole market with capsules completely changed and started booming. The specialty coffee roasteries started taking over this now free market. Together with that a few new companies started focusing on renewable and eco materials for producing capsules. The capsule machine producers started innovating their machines in order to get more extracted and richer coffees. From this perspective there was no reason for us not to put our coffees into capsules and offer them to our customers. To the customers who are looking for a simple and fast way of making their espresso at home.
How to get the best out of capsules?
No matter what is your capsule machine, always take care of the water first. It doesnt really matter what is your prefered method of making coffee beverage. 90% of an espresso and 98% of filter coffee is water! Water affects the final taste of your cup of coffee more than you would think. It is very important to use water with the best ratio of hardness, alkalinity and pH. Ideally, the hardness of water (Ca+Mg) should be somewhere aorund 50-180ppm, pH 6.5-7.5, alklanity 30-75ppm. You hardly can get these figures from the tap water. That is why we recommend to use bottled water for brewing coffee. We have got the best results so far with the brands Dobrá Voda and Aqua Bella.
What do you expect from an espresso determines how much of water you want to use for brewing one capsule (5.4g). We recommend 1 capsule/5.4g for 25ml of water. This recipe gives you balanced cup of coffee when it comes to acidity and sweetness.
What are the capsules actually made of?
Our capsules are made of bioplasstic material called Terrablend. The majority of this material is made of renewable sources, like lignin. Lignin is a complex oxygen-containing organic polymer that, with cellulose, forms the main constituent of wood. It is second to cellulose as the most abundant organic material on Earth. We use it for strengthening our capsules. Other parts are glucose and starch. Our capsules are 100% compostable in industrial composting plants (following a regulation EU EN-13432 ). A perfect solution is to recycle paper in your recycling bin and throw your capsules in biowaste /food waste. We do not recommend much to compost your capsules in your home compost as the process would take a very long time.
