For our capsules we use the same compositions as our blends of beans/ground coffee but we modify the degree of roasting in order to further enhance the aromatic profile given that the capsule machines work at different temperatures and pressures compared to professional espresso machines.
Relive the origin
Coffee was introduced to India in the late 17th century. The story goes that an Indian pilgrim to Mecca, known as Baba Budan, smuggled seven beans to India from Yemen in 1670 (it was illegal at the time to take coffee seeds out of the Arabian Peninsula) and planted them in the Chandragiri Hills of Karnataka . The Dutch (who occupied much of India throughout the 17th century) helped spread coffee cultivation across the country, but it was with the arrival of British colonialism in the mid-19th century that commercial coffee cultivation reached its peak. development. Arabica plants were initially widespread, but rust infestations of coffee leaves led many farms to replace them with Robusta plants or Arabica / Liberica hybrids.
