COFFEE PADS – Innovation in the world of the single-dose coffee

The two year project, based on Industrial Research and Experimental Development, is founded under the Calabria regional operational program (POR). It is focused on the valorization of the environmental sustainability and on the circular economy perspective within the processes of coffee production.
A new concept of coffee pod and single – dose coffee capsule

Lead Partner: Caffe Aiello

Scientific- technical partnership: CUEIM, Università della Calabria

 
Annuity
2018 - 2019
 
Goals

“Coffee Pads” aims at the designing and at the prototyping of two new products to place on the monoportion coffee market. These innovative products do not require the use of plastic package and alluminium since they are 100% realized with bio- based, renewable and compostable materials, obtained from the scarps of the Calabrian agro-industrial production chain:

1) a pod that can be used both for mocha and for the pods espresso coffee machines
2) a capsule that can be used in the capsule coffee machines

 
Subdivision

The project is developed in several phases, each of which is characterized by specific goals.

 
Research Output

The development of project activities includes the following outputs:

1. Prototype zero of a new ecosustainable pod;
2. Prototype zero of a new eco-sustainable capsule;
3. Technology and production process for the realization of the new eco sustainable pod;
4. Technology and production process for the realization of the new eco sustainable capsule.
