ALUCOAT gives colour to coffee

For coffee lovers, one of the most pleasurable things in life is to be able to enjoy a delicious coffee first thing in the morning, to enjoy it after a meal with friends or family or during an important meeting or appointment.

There is a great variety of flavours and textures that travel around the world and that, depending on each area, give it a unique taste. In order to preserve ground coffee in optimum conditions and guarantee that when you drink it is “freshly ground”, it is necessary for it to be in an aluminium container, as this is the material that best preserves food and does not interfere with its flavour.

That is why ALUCOAT works to offer a premium, high quality product to one of the most demanding segments of the market. ALUCOATs lacquered aluminium for coffee capsules provides a total protection barrier, preserving 100% of its properties and maintaining its freshness until its final consumption. In addition, the use of an aluminium alloy specifically designed for this use, together with the wide range of customisable colours offered by the company, allows its customers to create innovative designs and enables them to produce coffee capsules with their own personality, helping them to differentiate themselves from their competitors.

Moreover, the aluminium capsules are infinitely and 100% recyclable, which helps to reduce the carbon footprint, global emissions and favour the circular economy (SDG 13), making it the perfect packaging that protects an exclusive product and cares about the environment and a sustainable future.
