So, it’s Valentine’s Day, and you have no idea what to do. Just as every year. Dan Ariely has summed this up so nicely for Big Data, but it equally holds for the day of love: “Valentine’s Day is like teenage sex: everyone talks about it, nobody really knows how to do it, everyone thinks everyone else is doing it, so everyone claims they are doing it.”
We are here to help, of course. Let’s remember, it is the day to celebrate love. So, let's talk love, shall we?
To start with, you love your coffee! No matter what you say, we all know your first morning coffee is above anything else. It is that rich flavour on a dry morning tongue, it is that intense smell of fumes coming from your cup, it is the caffeine pumping life slowly back into you. And, above all, it is that private moment you have with your cup of coffee and yourself.
Next, and equally important, you love your partner. No matter the quirks and subtleties, you adore your partner for who she/he is. You remember that you have shared some wonderful moments, and that you had good times but also amazing times. And your partner deserves a little thank you, a little present.
Last but not least, you love your planet. You live on it, you live from it, you breathe her air and eat her food. But you see her degrading and feel powerless as no matter what drastic measure you take to a more sustainable lifestyle, you understand it is a drop in the ocean. But, hey, every small step counts. Every step!
Now, let us come to the point: we are one of the very few on our planet right now who can cater for all your three loves. Our planet-friendly Nespresso-compatible capsules do not contain any plastic/aluminum, i.e. are fully compostable, and they contain premium coffee. And here our offer to you to help you through this important day: Our Valentine’s Day Super-Sales allow you to get coffee you love to the partner you love to preserve the planet you love. Can we suggest you add a little note saying:“I cannot espresso how much I love you!”

There are two Coffea (coffee) species that make up nearly all the coffee grown for consumer consumption; these are Coffea Robusta and Coffea Arabica. We have discussed the latter in our last blog, so let's focus on the Robusta coffee bean today.
You probably will have seen on coffee packs everywhere the phrase "100% Arabica", and wondered what it means or stands for. This is mainly intended as a sign of quality which is used as a selling point and means exactly what it says: that 100% of the coffee in the package is made from Arabica coffee beans.
Originally published at the end of March 2020 in published in the journal Frontiers in Microbiology, a new strain of bacteria has been identified which is able to withstand harsh conditions, such as high temperatures or acidic environments, and is able to “eat” plastic. Yes, you read that correctly. This new strain of bacteria is able to feed on toxic plastic and, rather unusually, uses it as food to power the entire process.
