Production of Private Label compatible coffee capsules
Coffee capsules have become a global trend. Although a relatively recent phenomenon, it’s a highly prolific sector: every year around 10 billion capsules are sold worldwide, a volume that tries to cope with rising demand. In a situation like this, the only way to stand out from the competition is to produce a truly premium quality product: Coind’s top quality raw products and high-level production processes combine to make it a sector leader.
The Group produces and markets capsules on various fronts:
- For private label distributors, visit this website for information: Private Label Coffee Capsules

- Own brands Meseta and Carracci only, on Amazon and through e-commerce on CapsuleHouse, in various formats (capsules, pods, coffee beans and ground coffee).
Types of private label compatible capsules
In producing private label coffee capsules, Coind deals mostly with capsules compatible with the most popular formats:
- Nespresso*, self-protected or not
- Nescafé Dolce Gusto*
- Lavazza A Modo Mio*
- Lavazza Blue*
- Lavazza Espresso Point*
- Espresso Tuo
Sensitivity towards environmental sustainability themes has inspired the Group to develop a compostable capsule format. Among other advantages, this meets the growing global desire for environmental sustainability: unlike the most common capsules, which contain plastic and aluminium, these can safely be disposed as wet or organic waste without having to eliminate the coffee grounds.
Capsule filling and packaging process
The meticulous care that culminates in the encapsulation process starts with the selection of the raw coffee beans in the producing countries, chosen from the best Arabica and Robusta varieties.
Distributors can decide the proportions of each ingredient to be included in their own blend, depending on taste preferences.
The selected blend is then roasted and ground and finally inserted in the small single-dose plastic, aluminium or compostable capsules. Once the ground blend has been inserted, the capsules are sealed in a protective atmosphere, in order to preserve their quality over time. The capsules maintain the coffee’s full flavour for two years after processing.
Next comes the packaging phase, where the private label company chooses the graphics and formats it desires. Coind offers various personalisable packaging formats: with capsules individually packaged in a cardboard box or case, or loose inside a bag.
Coffee in capsules: Coind’s proprietary system
Private label production is certainly an important activity for the Group, but alongside this the company’s experience has allowed it to develop one proprietary system for capsule coffee: EspressoTuo.
EspressoTuo is a line of capsules specially designed to work with certain espresso coffee machines, producing a full-bodied and creamy home-brewed espresso. 7 grams of coffee per capsule, that release all their aroma from every cup of coffee they produce.
The exclusive EspressoTuo capsule format facilitates the separation of its various components, making separate waste sorting much easier. For foreign markets, EspressoTuo capsules are available in the Meseta brand.
In Italy, EspressoTuo is distributed by the Coop Supermarket chain which, through its Fior Fiore premium brand, has an exclusive on selling this capsule line.
