Coffee production and capsule packing
Coffee’s journey, from the plant to its grinding
The story of the production of compatible capsules begins with coffee beans. To successfully carry out its private label projects, Coind draws on its skills in selecting and in roasting the finest qualities of Arabica and Robusta beans, thus creating unique blends, ranging from the most intense to the most delicate, and storing them inside the capsules. This blending of various different kinds of coffee bean produces various kinds of taste tones and moods, where every blend is composed in order to achieve specific final flavours. If the intention is to create a smoothly harmonic taste with a hint of bitterness, then Arabic beans will predominate, while if the desire is to produce a bolder and more full-bodied intensity, then certain kinds of Robusta will be selected to dominate the proportions of the blend.
The distinction between this two tastes is the key to everything. Knowing how to determine and achieve subtle flavour-shifts in coffee blends is the key to offering a top quality product to the final consumer.
Once the desired blend of coffee beans has been defined, the next vital step consists of roasting them, which endows the beans with the classic intense brown colour we all associate with coffee. The roasting is a delicate phase, where the coffee must be treated with great care, in order not to compromise the successive grinding process which produces the fine ground coffee that is then inserted inside the capsules. The ground coffee blend is meticulously controlled by a laser granulometer, a specially designed instrument that verifies whether the granulated coffee has the right degree of fineness to enable all its flavours to be extracted from the capsule by the hot water from the coffee machine.
Capsule coffee production, and personalised packaging
And so we reach the actual moment of encapsulation. The blend selected by the client is inserted in small single-dose containers in plastic, aluminium or compostable bioplastic, and then sealed in a protective atmosphere through the use of inert, odourless and tasteless gases such as nitrogen. This enables the coffee to keep its aroma unaltered and its perfume intact for a very long time, usually up to 2 years from processing. Aroma and perfume are only released at the moment the coffee finally enters the cup, thus guaranteeing a creamy espresso, as assertive and strong as bar-served coffee, but in the comfort of one’s own home.
Once the encapsulation is completed, the next step involves suitable packaging. Coind can create personalised packaging for any customer who wishes to produce private-label compatible coffee capsules suitable for use with the major systems on the market, so that the impact of each brand is not only due to the coffee blend, but also to the product’s image.
The capsules can be individually packaged in cardboard or cases. Another viable solution is the bag of loose capsules, ready to be distributed directly through major supermarket chains.
Coind always offers the certainty of a top quality product whose perfect condition is constantly reliable over time, as constant as the amazingly velvety and persistent cream entering the cup.
