Our Plastic Free Nespresso® compatible coffee capsules are 100% biodegradable & fully compostable. They’re packed with specialty grade coffee, which means you’re getting seriously tasty coffee and helping the environment too.
1p per capsule is donated to The Blurt Foundation – helping young people and adults affected by depression in the U.K.
Toffee, strawberry and hazelnut
ESCAPE’s pleasant nuttiness is derived from all three coffees in the blend. Colombia’s peach and Guatemala’s citrus fruit tones actually combine to create a nicely discernible strawberry after-taste. But from the attributes of cocoa, cream, smoke and nuts, the blend is wonderfully toffee flavoured from the very first sip.
You can buy them in packs of 10 or join our Coffee & Kin community and take out a monthly subscription.
Don’t forget that 1p from every capsule you buy is reinvested back into our coffee growing communities through the Coffee & Kin Foundation. We have two main goals – to get you drinking delicious tasting coffee at home and to do good in the world.
Three different coffees were used to produce this delightful coffee pod. If you would like to learn more about each individual coffee, please read on:
Colombia Medellin Excelso
Medellin is located in Antioquia at the foot of the Andes, one of the largest coffee growing areas in Colombia, and is well known for producing some of the finest and most sought-after coffees in the world. This coffee has a rich, nutty flavour with hints of fruit and cocoa and has a wonderfully smooth body, which makes it the perfect coffee for any time of the day, and amazing in a blend.
We chose Excelso beans for our blend. Excelso is a coffee grading term in Colombia. They are slightly smaller than Supremo coffee beans, but in our experience often more flavourful.
Medellin is known as the “City of Eternal Spring”. The region has rich volcanic soil and enjoys a mild and moist climate. These growing conditions produce a truly delicious and exclusive Arabica coffee, which is popular with coffee drinkers worldwide.
Walnut, sweet, peach notes, cocoa, soft cranberry acidity, medium body, well balanced.
The Central American country of Guatemala has been producing coffee since the 1850s. It has always ranked among the best for the high-grade coffee it produces. In our selection of classic coffees for our blends, we just couldn’t do without a good Guatemala. It’s one of the most reliable base coffees for a classic espresso blend.
Guatemala is divided into 8 coffee regions. Ours is from Antigua, and grows at around 1,200 metres above sea level. Apart from location, Guatemala classifies its qualities according to altitude (SHB as the highest value). SHB stands for Strictly Hard Bean. This means the coffee was produced on farms above 1,200m.
With its mild cup profile and creamy body, the flavours include milk chocolate, almonds and a hint
of citrus and stone fruit, this coffee is exceedingly well balanced.
Indiano Arabica Plantation AA
Plantation AA coffee consists of large ripe beans originating from the best plantations of the region. Monsoon climate and especially fertile soil of the area favour the cultivation of this high-quality Arabica. Nestled in the Beranagodu hills in the Western Ghats of India, this coffee has been grown on the Bynemara Estate by the same family since 1870. It is a truly exceptional coffee that has a rich flavour, deep aroma and velvety taste. It is without doubt one of the best Arabica coffees in the whole of India, which is confirmed by the “AA” quality designation.
With a very low acidity, this Indian coffee also has a dominant nutty aroma along with a delicate sweetness. The combination of its body, and a long lasting spicy and slightly smoky sweet aftertaste, allows you to recharge your energy and wellbeing for the entire day. This rich dark coffee also comes with stories of the land and people who have cultivated it for over a century, which is what we love about the specialty coffee industry.
Dominant nutty aroma, low acidity, with a rich delicate cherry sweetness and medium to full body. A long lasting spicy, smoky, sweet aftertaste.
