Coffee is a uniquely distinctive beverage that is loved by millions all over the world. The popularity has led to establishing places solely dedicated to serving this elixir- like beverage!
Yes, the coffee shops.
Coffee is the productivity fuel for people around the globe, and the growth and sale of coffee increase with each passing day.
Here, we discuss how technology met this beverage and talk about the wholesome integration of the two that lead to the invention of coffee capsules.
WHAT ARE COFFEE CAPSULES?
Coffee capsules have revolutionized the concept of single-serve coffee. They are small cylindrical containers that contain finely ground coffee of the best quality. The portion contained in one individual capsule is enough to make one cup or, as it is commonly said, serve one person. These are generally used to make espresso coffee. Espresso is a dark, intense, and concentrated shot of coffee with taste being the foremost distinction. These coffee capsules work with special machines designed particularly for them. Coffee capsules use aluminum as a seal and are packed tightly, thus ensuring the freshness of ground coffee.
THE DYNAMICS BEHIND COFFEE CAPSULES
The two major names in the coffee capsule market are Nespresso and Lavazza. The silver lining here is that many companies make capsules compatible with these two. The kind of coffee contained in the capsule is entirely your choice. You can choose to get your own ground coffee filled or choose from various combinations of types like Arabica, robusta, select the strength (low, medium, strong) and flavors like dark roasted, full-bodied, or even decaffeinated.
Operating a coffee capsule machine is a child’s play. All you need to do is switch on the machine so that it has access to water, put in your capsule in the capsule compartment, and press a button!
Yes, it is that easy!
Inside this wonder machine, hot steaming water moves through the capsule in less than 25 seconds to give you the highest quality of espresso shot with delectable crema. The crema obtained is dense, with small evolving bubbles and rich walnut color.
CONVENTIONAL BREWING METHODS COMPARED TO COFFEE CAPSULES
Expresso is an Italian word that roughly translates to fast. Making a cup of coffee is no less than creating art. Any minor change of step changes the coffee taste drastically. Instant coffee is the fastest way to make coffee, but it does involve manually arranging all ingredients and getting a coffee that tastes rather diabolical.
Filter coffee is a messy affair and also super slow. You definitely can’t make filter coffee if you’re already getting late, and most probably you will end up at a coffee shop later in the day. Grinding coffee beans to a cup of hot coffee might be the best kind of coffee in terms of flavor, strength, and aroma; however, this job is best left to baristas as it is a tedious one. Thus, switching over to coffee capsules is your best shot!
SUPERIORITY OF COFFEE CAPSULES OVER COFFEE PODS
Coffee capsules and coffee pods are two terms that are generally used interchangeably. However, there is a clear difference between the two. While coffee capsules are contained in small cylindrical containers covered with an airtight seal, coffee pods are filter enclosed coffee portions that are used in the same way as a teabag. The fuss and time required to use a coffee pod make coffee capsules a clear winner.
Coffee capsules, as compared to coffee pods and other brewing methods, rank high in sustainability. Most capsules are compostable. There are metal capsules available that work for 10+ years.
Fascinating. Isn’t it?
Regular coffee drinkers know that there is much more to a cup of coffee than what the eyes perceive. How wonderful is it to prepare a cup of intense dark rich coffee with the perfect blend and crema cup made from the freshest and the finest ground coffee? The cherry on top is that it requires absolutely zero effort and time. If you want to indulge in the finest coffee and start your day on the right note, simultaneously saving time, coffee capsules are your solution!
