The Caffè di Artisan Story, Origins & Artisanal Food-Tech Liquid Single Shot Coffee Pods
What is Caffè di Artisan?
Caffè di Artisan is a luxury coffee company born out of rebellion, formed by a group of global coffee lovers, fed up with commoditised, machine-produced, inadequately flavoured, burnt and bitter coffee. Caffè di Artisan represents the final frontier in the world of coffee drinking: fine coffee that is artisanally and freshly produced but through cutting edge Food Tech, is packaged and delivered directly to you in convenient liquid single shot pods. Just open the pod, pour out the divine and freshly extracted Single Origin coffee shot into a glass or a mug, add hot water or hot/cold foamed milk (using our free frother that comes with your first order), and you have an Americano, Espresso, Latté, Cappuccino or Frappé that nobody on this planet can match. That's our promise.
What are Caffè di Artisan single serve liquid coffee pods?
Caffè di Artisan pods contain luxury liquid coffee that is artisanally and slowly extracted from freshly roasted and ground coffee beans, using our unique micro-filtery process that marries artisanal processes with cutting edge Food Tech, utilising Laws of Thermodynamics. Our fine coffee is then packaged and delivered directly to you in convenient liquid single shot pods. What's more, our liquid coffee pods use no preservatives at all... just pure, exquisite coffee.
No need to use machines to make your coffee anymore - we have taken the machines out of the equation!
So Why is Caffè di Artisan the Best Coffee in the World
Why is Caffè di Artisan's coffee superior to machine-produced coffee?
Espresso coffee is prepared by passing super hot and super high-pressure water through coffee grounds. This, however, essentially kills the soul of the coffee grounds. Imagine what happens when you pass scalding hot water, at high pressure, through the delicate coffee grounds: the powder gets burnt and the high pressure ends up over-extracting the coffee from the grounds, resulting in coffee that is bitter. Great coffee is strong, zesty, flavourful, however it doesn't have to be bitter - but that's what espresso makers have convinced us to believe because they can only produce over-extracted and bitter coffee, whose subtle notes have been strangled by the violence of the high-heat and high-pressure extraction process.
Can you produce great wine by violently squeezing the grapes to get instant wine?
Obviously not. You simply can't hasten greatness. Great drinks take time to reach perfection. At Caffè di Artisan, we roast and grind the coffee beans fresh for every single pod! No coffee maker in the world can do that. The grounds are then lovingly, gently and slowly extracted via our unique micro-filtery process where we artisanally squeeze out the last usable drop of coffee elixir to produce divine single-shot liquid coffee - packing in all its natural notes, oils and sweetness.
We don't let machines do this because there are still some things that human beings do better. It's simple - you just have to pour the liquid luxury coffee from Caffè di Artisan's single shot pod into a cup and froth it, then froth hot milk, and pour it into the cup to mix with the coffee. You will find that Caffè di Artisan's coffee is strong, zesty, has great attitude, but is never bitter.
How is Caffè di Artisan's coffee different from instant coffee?
Instant coffee is just a mix of wood husk and the cheapest and lowest quality Robusta coffee seed powder, made by an extremely harsh extraction process that destroys almost all the flavours and fragrances inherent in the coffee. The solution is then artificially infused with coffee aroma and either freeze-dried or spray-dried, creating crystals or a powdery substance that you know as instant coffee.
At Caffè di Artisan, the entire process, right from the selection of the water that goes into our coffee, the beans, the roasting, the grinding, and finally the distillation of divine single-shot liquid coffee through our micro-filtery, is artisanal. We select only the finest Arabica coffee seeds for curated acidity and flavour, which are then roasted to our specifications by our master coffee roasters, ensuring that most of the flavour and fragrance of the coffee beans is gently extracted to give you the taste of real coffee.
Hey Guys, No More Machines! Why Coffee Machines are going to become dinosaurs, The trouble with espresso machines, The Germs in The Coffee Machines, and more...
Do I need to buy an expensive machine, like the Nespresso or Keurig machines, to make Caffè di Artisan coffee?
Not at all! That's the essential beauty of Caffè di Artisan's liquid single shot pods: they are freshly extracted and packaged for you. All you need to do is to pour the liquid shot into a cup, froth it, add hot foamed milk (if desired) using the same free Frother that comes to you with your first order, and voila! Within 60 seconds or less, you now have arguably the best lattes, cappuccinos or macchiatos in the world!
The Trouble with Coffee Machines
Recent studies by the University of Valencia conducted on Nespresso machines showed alarming levels of germs (including E.coli) in the machines (click here). The same was confirmed by another study by the University of Chicago. Coffee machines also attract algae, mold and even cockroaches and have actually been called 'the germiest place in the house'.
In addition, all coffee machines require extensive cleaning, descaling, troubleshooting and replacement, not to mention counter space.
The other thing you may want to know; all coffee machines degrade over time. Why? Because coffee oils keep coating, layer upon layer, the internal pipes of a coffee machine. As we all know, oils become rancid. And this rancid oil residue then keeps getting mixed with every shot of coffee produced (since the coffee is very hot, the oils melt and mix with the fresh shot being made). That's why the coffee made by machines starts deteriorating in taste over time. What's worse, this coffee plus rancid oil mix gives you acidity and gastric irritation. So if you thought that coffee gave you gastric problems, the trouble lay not in the coffee, but in the machine used to make it.
Why do we need to go through all these hassles to get what is one of the real pleasures in life - A Great Cup of Coffee?
Environment, Community, Sourcing, Health
Are Caffè di Artisan's liquid coffee pods environmentally friendly?
Yes! We use 100% fully recyclable, food grade, BPA-free, polypropylene pods, customised to our requirements.
Are Caffè di Artisan's coffee beans fair trade and ethically sourced?
Yes, some of our beans are Certified Fair Trade.
Where does Caffè di Artisan source its coffee beans from?
Caffè di Artisan uses a premium blend of Arabica coffee beans from Single Estates in the world's most renowned coffee-producing regions.
Are Caffè di Artisan's coffees Single Origins?
Yes! Coffee beans get most of their distinguishing characteristics from the coffee-growing regions where they are cultivated due to differences in soil, climate and elevation. But most coffees are a blend of beans from different growing regions around the world and the best beans are usually mixed with other varieties to lower the overall expense. Caffè di Artisan provides distinctive single-origin coffees, each with a flavour unique to its origin and a taste of its own, exemplifying the best qualities of its plantation, terrain, region and flavours that are unique to the exact place where the coffee beans are grown.
What preservatives does Caffè di Artisan use?
None whatsoever! What you get is pure, liquid coffee elixir.
Coffee does not agree with me...it causes acidity and gastric irritation. Can Caffè di Artisan's products do something about it?
So if you think that coffee gives you gastric problems, the trouble lies not in the coffee, but in the machine used to make it.
The reason: all coffee machines degrade over time. Why? Because coffee oils keep coating, layer upon layer, the internal pipes of a coffee machine. As we all know, oils become rancid. And this rancid oil residue then keeps getting mixed with every shot of coffee produced (since the coffee is very hot, the oils melt and mix with the fresh shot being made). That's why the coffee made by machines starts deteriorating in taste over time. What's worse, this coffee plus rancid oil mix gives you acidity and gastric irritation.
Of course, coffee machines can cause problems that are even worse. Recent studies by the University of Valencia conducted on Nespresso machines showed alarming levels of germs (including E.coli) in the machines (click here). The same was confirmed by another study by the University of Chicago. Coffee machines also attract algae, mold and even cockroaches and have actually been called 'the germiest place in the house'.
All these problems will be behind you with the pure, liquid, luxury coffee from Caffè di Artisan.
