|Coffee type||10 pc Nespresso capsules|
We always want you to enjoy drinking our coffee. And we wish to celebrate everyone involved in the journey from the farm to the cup. With our capsules we just manage that. We carefully pick coffee for our capsules from the farmers and we pay them fairly so they can continue to produce such wonderful cofffees. Our coffee capsules are made of lignin (a substance derived from wood bark and a waste product of the paper processing industry) so then you can easily compost them .
What are our capsules made of
Our capsules are made of special bioplastic called Terrablend. The main raw materials used are starch, glucose, vegetable fibers, inorganic filler materials, and biodegradable additives. This makes Terracaps entirely GMO-, gluten-free, and vegan. All monomers present are already listed and known by EFSA (EU) and FDA (USA). The biocapsule material is biodegradable according to DIN EN ISO 14855.
Our capsules were developed specifically for industrial composting. We recommend to dispose of the capsules in the food waste bin. This way, the capsules re-enter the resource cycle.
The coffee comes from 15 producers based in the region of southern Huila. The decaffeination process is carried out in DESCAFECOL factory using Ethyl Acetate derived from sugar cane. The result? Perfect and sweet coffee without caffeine.
It took us few years to find a decaf that would taste good enough in comparison to our standard single origin offering. Using Ethyl Acetate derived from sugar cane in the decaffeination process is quite a new thing that arrived to Europe only last year. What is so interesting about it? In fact, it is the only process that influences the final flavours positively.
Enhanced fruitiness and sweetness
All Colombian coffees must be fully-washed by law in prior to export. Interestingly enough, our La Serraniahas fruity flavours and sweetness mostly associated with dry processed coffees. The reason is the type of solvent (EA from sugar cane dissolved in water) used to extract caffeine from the beans.
How to brew it?
In this section, you would normally read steps how to brew your coffee. With our capsules this problem is solved. The coffee is already ground and ready in the pods, so you dont need to worry about it (if you dont wish so). The steps are pretty simple: put it in, press it, drink it.
Our capsules fit in all Nespresso coffee machines. If you do feel like you want to play around with the recipes please chose Morning machines for that. Morning coffee maker allows you to change temperature, pressure and other variables. We also will share with you how we brew it in the roastery.
