Coffee Capsule Introduction: must know!
An Intensive Farming Cup of coffee is enjoyable, of course, but the reality is often harsh:
Getting up in the morning in order to sleep a few minutes more, going out to work is like going to war, even go to the convenience store to buy a coffee time.
It’s a good thing we have capsule machines. You put a capsule in, push a button and you get a decent cup of coffee… which, I have to admit, is super-fast and super-convenient. And, rather than a mixture of Creamer, emulsifiers, and ground coffee (yes, I’m talking about instant coffee), at least a cup of coffee comes out of the capsule.
Blue Goose, the capsule coffee maker in all kinds of advertisements, is a symbol of fashion and taste: both the capsule and the machine are designed to cost a lot more than a fully automatic coffee machine It tastes just like real coffee…
So it quickly took over executive offices, snazzy homes and, in many cases, quickly determine whether a high-star hotel “really have class”, the key is to see the room is placed in the instant or capsule machine Ah!
So, what is the capsule machine, with the capsule machine, Is it really possible to get a decent cup of coffee as good as the one they make at the coffee shop?
Then follow my leads
How did the coffee capsule maker come into being?
Capsule coffee was invented in 1976 by Nestle, the world’s largest food company.
What? This was way ahead of its time back in 1976?
It is said that Eric Favre, the inventor of the capsule machine, happened upon an unusual cup of Espresso at a Roman cafe, where the owner of the coffee shop repeatedly flipped the handle because he thought the machine was broken That allowed a lot of compressed gas to enter the cup… which led to the development of the capsule coffee.
Coffee capsule, is the ground coffee powder sealed in a small capsule, Use the high pressure and Extremely Strong Water Vapor to extract the espresso
The idea, at the 1970s, was ahead of its time, but NESTLÉ’s ill-conceived marketing (commercial coffee) kept it in obscurity for decades, until recently NESTLÉ’s change of strategy to focus on the non-professional level of the household market, then slowly opened the situation.
You know the rest of the story. Nespresso, with one machine in hand, there are no limits… while other coffee giants, such as Lavazza, Illy, Mars, and Green Mountain, seeing the benefits, are starting to develop their own systems for capsule coffee.
It’s worth noting, however, that the relationship between different brands of capsule machines, like Apple and Android, Canon and Nikon, buy an iPhone, not an Android phone, and buy a Canon SLR I’m not going to buy a Nikon head for fun…
Yeah, what I said was,
If you buy this machine, you have to use his capsule. One Turnip, one pit, although they’re all capsules, they’re not compatible
The following table can help you quickly sum up all the common capsule machines on the market.
|Nestle||Nespresso||High Market share, good looks, can only brew coffee drinks. Recently AFPAK has helped some enterprises produce tea, milk powder and so on|
|Nestle||Dolce Gusto||Can Brew Cold Drinks, tea, soluble powders and coffee outside of the drink|
|Green Mountain||K-cup/K-shot||Open Platform, so that many companies can produce their own brand of coffee capsules|
|Illy||Illy||Very particular about the details of the capsule|
|Lavazza||Espresso Point,Blue/a modo mio||Multiple systems are incompatible|
How does a capsule become coffee?
Capsules are made from ground coffee, sealed in aluminum/plastic capsules, and filled with nontoxic inert gases (such as nitrogen) to extend shelf life and re-sterilized.
Blimey, that sounds like potato chips! No wonder they last up to a year.
Traditional Italian machine working principle, say to use pressure to extract the very high concentration of coffee. Capsule Machine, in fact, is no exception.
In fact, looking at so many models, the functions are more or less the same, there is roughly the following component composition:
BOOSTER PUMP: Produces 9 to 12 atmospheres of pressure to quickly extract the flavor of Coffee
Heating Element: Most of the capsule machine to reduce the size, using the Thermo-block to heat hot water, the temperature may have 4 to 5 degrees of Floating Space
Electronic Control Board: Control Water Volume, control temperature
Brew Area: Evenly Inject Hot water into the capsule, after extraction, there is room to store the used capsule
Milk Foam: This function of the capsule machine, usually more expensive, the machine will be slightly larger. The resulting foam is not too dense, and the temperature of the milk cannot be controlled
The capsules are hard and retain their original shape at high temperatures. The principle of the capsule machine is that high pressure and high-temperature steam is injected into the capsule, so that coffee under pressure, extraction with Crema, strong concentrated coffee, to a greater extent, to retain the flavor of coffee and aromatic alcohol.
Why do we drink coffee capsule ?
Get a good cup of coffee, there are four factors: water temperature, water, coffee grinding fine powder, coffee powder degree of freshness. Let’s not talk about people…
The birth of the capsule coffee, a one-time solution to the above problem. One-button service, BOOT super fast, heating speed super fast, but also not bad to drink!
So is there any other reason besides convenience?
Capsule coffee is probably one of the most quality-consistent coffees. In product design, the capsule set a good temperature of water, water output, the capsule itself to comply with the production of water, standardization.
In addition to coffee, many capsule machines can also drink tea and other beverages is a Lazy Gospel.
And… It looks great. LOOK AT THE TIDE! It doesn’t take up a lot of space, so it’s nice not to have it around the house.
Finally, the price is right. Although the capsule cost a lot of money (about a dollar a capsule), the price of the capsule machine itself or much cheaper than the automatic coffee machine.
So, is there a downside to capsule coffeemakers?
1 | NOT FRESH ENOUGH
Although many capsule coffee factories use “fresh” as their selling point, that depends on who you’re competing with… Compared to beans, ground coffee is certainly not as fresh as FRESHLY GROUND COFFEE.
Once ground into a powder, the oxidation rate will be very fast, even if sealed, the residual oxygen will have very serious oxidation, resulting in bad taste. There are, of course, several ways to slow down the rate of oxidation: By flushing with nitrogen(This is all AFPAK’s machines standard function), or by adding a deoxidizer.
Big factories, like Illy and Nespresso, are made in “all-nitrogen” packaging, so they can slow the flavor down a bit. Nespresso does this very well, because each capsule is “sealed” in a single capsule, so each capsule is in a low-oxygen state with a slower rate of decay; Illy fills a can with nitrogen, so once the CAN is opened, the unused capsule will start to oxidize That’s why illy’s capsules have to be used quickly… ….
And k-cup, because it doesn’t have patent protection (it’s an open platform and wants other brands to use its capsule system), so there are a lot of different OEM factories that produce capsules of different standards… Imagine that It’s a hell of a difference (But AFPAK guarantee that all Coffee packed by AFPAK’S k-cup filling sealing machine is of the highest quality).
2 | The flip side of Standardization
You can use the capsule machine without thinking, To minimize the impact of human factors, its water temperature, water is constant, there will be no adjustment for different capsules…
Plus, it doesn’t make beautiful foam!
Drink Latte, Cappuccino, and other milk coffee, to have beautiful thin foam, is technical work. But no matter what brand of capsule machine, basically can not make dense foam! But for the sake of convenience, bear with me.
3 | One turnip one pit, capsule machine is incompatible with each other
Except for the k-cup Capsule System, all capsule systems are the closed-loop business model. In other words, if you buy this machine, you will be forced to use the capsule made by this manufacturer unless you change the machine!
And one more thing, and this is the most important thing, because of the compatibility of the various systems, resulting in the choice of the capsule itself is limited, the flavor of the breadth and richness will be weaker.
Buying a capsule machine is just the beginning
Capsules are the easy-to-burn, money-grubbing follow-up products
So, whether can buy the capsule that tastes pretty good, is the most important thing!
