More than ever - we need to think about tomorrow today. Our passion for coffee goes so far that we are convinced that economical use of valuable coffee is just as indispensable as dealing with waste disposal. Serious sustainability, is what we want to stand for. With Cupfresh, we have designed a capsule that combines both. Our Bio Cupfresh capsule is industrially compostable** and offers a biodegradable solution. At the same time, the capsules are well-dosed, aroma-proof and opaque, so that a freshness aroma can be guaranteed. Our capsules not only protect the environment but also the consumer, because they are aluminum-free.
We use only organic raw materials in the production. These raw materials are produced from various materials in a special process and consist, for example, of corn, starch, cellulose, wood fiber, sugar, polylactic acids and/or natural fibers. Our Cupfresh capsules have been classified as sustainable because they are aluminum-free.
Cupfresh BIO is a 100% organic quality brand of Functional Food Grono Schweiz GmbH, with the production site in Grono, in the Italian part of Switzerland.
Quality starts with the selection of the growing areas. A symbiosis of supplier, roasting process, time and use of high quality technologies make Cupfresh organic products a special experience. Only selected coffee beans free from harmful substances are used for coffee production. The fresh, Italian roasting as well as the special double grinding process makes the Barista - quality in the cup possible. With the help of a special high-pressure process, the coffee lands in the capsules in a well-dosed manner.
It is not the bean alone that determines the taste of a coffee. It is also the roasting process in combination with the precious commodity "time", which is responsible for a balanced flavor. Therefore, our coffee beans are gently roasted at 220 degrees for at least 20-25 minutes. The exact timing is decided by the roaster, because patience is required here. This process allows the bean to break down unhealthy acids. The process also helps to "get" unwanted bitter substances out of the coffee, which many a coffee drinker may have experienced. This is the secret why our coffee has its special softness and this incredible variety of flavors.
Already noticed? Once coffee is opened, it loses aroma and flavor. That is, even if you brew the coffee fresh, it is already old. With our Cupfresh organic capsules, we can truly guarantee freshness. After roasting, the coffee beans are stored with sufficient time to cool. Here one also says "outgassing" to it, before they are ground in a special process and portioned immediately afterwards. The Cupfresh organic fresh capsule is deoxygenated, the coffee is poured in and neutron gas is added. A fine special paper from Japan is used to seal the capsule. We call this process "autoprotection", which means an airtight, biodegradable seal thus ensures fresh enjoyment.
We all have a duty to our earth to use finite but also infinite resources responsibly. To this end, as a supplier or producer, we adhere to a code of conduct that not only deals sustainably with resources, but also with people. We have a code of conduct and work with suppliers who respect human rights, take seriously the prohibition of child labor, the presence of occupational safety measures and the conduct of ethically correct business activities are important.
We have a certificate for our industrially compostable** "CUPFRESH" CAPSULE. This means that we use bioplastic materials in production that enable industrial compostability**. They are certified accordingly according to EN13432 and EN14995 standards by TÜV Austria, the leading European certification authority. Among other things, this awards the recognized "OK compost" logo, which we have also received. The certification naturally also includes all additives, printing inks and other components.
