Moving Beans 1 Year Anniversary - Going Green

Moving Beans 1 Year Anniversary - Going Green

March 14, 2018

To celebrate our one-year anniversary, we are launching a new and exciting coffee portfolio. All of our Nespresso™-compatible coffee capsules are now fully biodegradable and compostable.

Over the past year, we have seen the growing impact of aluminium and plastic coffee capsules onto the environment, not least because of our own growing sales; so we have decided to take an active stance and research into sustainable coffee capsules.

This turned out to be really complex because – whilst biodegradable plastic is available –solutions were not able to seal the coffee hermetically which led to coffee going stale. With our scientific background, we thus went on a quest and discovered the best materials to ensure your coffee stays fresh, whilst also producing zero waste.

Our sustainable coffee capsules now deliver the best flavours from the finest coffee beans in the world with no environmental impact. We hope that you enjoy, and certainly stay in touch with us!

What is all the fuss about the water?
What is all the fuss about the water?

October 15, 2020

Water 💧 is the quiet and elusive partner of coffee. You need it to make coffee and it can change the flavour of it depending on the subtle differences in water composition. Recently, there has been a resurrection of research around the water composition and the quality of coffee. 👩🏽‍🔬 A key notion to take on board is that good tasting water does not necessarily mean good tasting coffee. For example, the bicarbonate content that makes a branded bottled water very smooth water to drink is basically responsible for removing acidity and sweetness in coffee.
