3 things to consider when buying coffee for your recyclable coffee capsule

You've made the switch to recyclable coffee capsules (we're so glad you've become part of the recyclable coffee capsule revolution!) and now you're ready to head down to your local roastery or supermarket to find some high quality and freshly ground beans to brew in your capsule.

You know that the taste of your coffee is only as good as the coffee you put in your capsule, but you are not quite sure where to start when it comes to buying coffee for recyclable coffee capsules.

Do not despair! Let us help you navigate the different bean varieties, roasts, blends and degrees of paint.

We have put together our 3 simple tips so you can get your hands on some amazing beans to brew at home!

1. Choose the right degree of paint

Choosing the right degree of grinding for your reusable coffee capsule ensures that you can extract the perfect amount of flavor from your coffee.

A well-extracted cup of coffee should be balanced in taste.

When you mix water and coffee, a lot of (magical) things happen - different flavors are extracted at different speeds.

During extraction, the water is actively dissolved with the taste of the coffee - sharper, sour and fruity tastes are extracted first, followed by the deep, complex ones.

Towards the end of brewing, the bitter and heavier flavors are extracted.

An ideal extraction contains a delicious balance of clarity between flavors.

If your coffee is too sour, this may indicate that it is under-extracted, which means that the taste of the beans has not been fully utilized.

An over-extracted cup of coffee, on the other hand, can be too bitter.

Therefore, it is important to choose the right degree of paint as it ensures that the water flows through the capsule at the correct rate and extracts the very best components from your coffee beans.

Degree of grinding also affects how recyclable coffee capsules extract coffee - if your coffee is ground too finely, the hot water cannot get through (it essentially blocks the water flow inside the coffee).

Too coarsely ground, the water will just run through the coffee and result in a watered cup of coffee.

In general, a finely ground coffee works best. This causes the water to work a little harder to get through the coffee, creating a powerful and full-bodied espresso.

Coffee grinder settings vary greatly from grinder to grinder, so it may take some time and experimentation to find the ideal coffee grinder setting for your reusable coffee.

Start by painting a little coarser than you normally would and adjust until you find the perfect taste.

Also remember that coffee beans are always best when freshly ground.

We therefore recommend that you only grind as many beans as you need for your coffee - that way you always get the best taste out of your coffee beans.

Many roasteries have their own grinder, so if you are in doubt about how coarsely your coffee should be ground, it always pays to ask the roaster.

Most of them are more than willing to give you a few tips and guides!

When you buy coffee from us, we always have freshly ground beans in stock, so you are guaranteed the best taste.

2. Select the correct roast / blend Disposable capsules may contain flavor enhancers (such as dehydrated powders or concentrates) to give the illusion of a "stronger" coffee.

Whereas fresh coffee can give a more genuine and natural coffee taste.

The taste of coffee is affected by roast / blend - which is a combination of different bean varieties and roasts.

It is therefore important that you choose a coffee that suits your taste.

Here's an overview of the most common roasts / blends:

- Light roast:

A light roast has a shorter extraction time and less caramelization of sugary substances

A light roast coffee therefore has a more sour taste with less deep and complex notes.

- Medium Roast:

A medium roast is the most common type of roast, as it provides a coffee with the perfect balance of acidity and depth.

A medium roast has a shorter extraction time than a dark roast, but longer than a light roast.

- Dark roast:

A dark roast has a long extraction time, which makes the coffee beans caramelize more.

Therefore, a dark roast coffee has a deep and heavy taste.

A dark roast can seem too overwhelming to some, as it can often have a bitter taste.

It is therefore important that you choose the coffee that best suits your taste.

A light roast is often good for morning coffee, as it has a more energizing effect.

A medium roast coffee is the perfect choice for afternoon coffee, as it provides the optimal balance between acidity and depth.

And a dark roast is good for evening coffee, as it often has a calming and relaxing effect.

Most roasters have their own blend, so if you are in doubt about which type of roast / blend best suits your taste, it can always pay to ask the roaster.

Most of them are more than willing to give you a few tips and guided beans in stock so you are guaranteed the best taste.

Also remember that coffee beans are always best when freshly ground.

When you buy coffee from us, we always have freshly roasted coffee!

3. Oil / moisture

The roasting has a significant effect on the character of the coffee, and can at the same time influence how the coffee is when it is brewed in recyclable coffee capsules.

Too dry roasting can give a coffee that is too sour and does not have the optimal taste.

On the other hand, a too wet roast will give a coffee that may have a spongy or musty taste.

It is therefore important that you buy coffee from a roastery that is in control of their processes.

When you buy coffee from us, you can be sure to get a coffee of the highest quality.

We hope this has given you a little more insight into how to find the perfect coffee beans for your recyclable coffee capsule.

And always remember to store your freshly ground coffee in an airtight bag to ensure that they are not exposed to oxygen or become dull.
