When we think of how green coffee (raw beans) is transported, those wonderful, boldly printed jute sacks immediately come to mind. Often, they are adorned with a strong and colourful motif: they make sought-after decorations for trendy coffee shops, or re-emerge in the guise of upcycled shopping bags and similar products. But the jute sack is not just attractive to behold. It plays an indispensable role in the coffee trade.

News and interesting facts about K-fee
Be it a cappuccino, a latte macchiato or café au lait – in Germany, two-thirds of coffee drinkers prefer the popular hot drink brewed from beans with added milk. But why do coffee and milk actually complement each other so well, and what makes the perfect froth?
Ripe and bright red – this is what the coffee cherry looks like when it is picked from the bush. But before the coffee can be shipped as a raw bean in the well-known jute sacks, it has to undergo several processing stages. The reason is simple: a freshly picked coffee cherry contains around 60 percent water so therefore it does not have a long shelf life and is not suitable for transportation.
At K-fee it’s all about the perfect taste. And a consistent coffee taste requires regular care of your capsule machine. Sounds expensive? No worries! It is completely simple and quick to do. Ensure perfect hygiene even in the smallest corners of your machine with our tips.
