nitrogen flushed coffee capsules

Coffee is a delicate product. In order to prevent the oxidation of the coffee in portion packs, nitrogen gas is used during dosing until the capsules are sealed and the oxygen is removed.

Pretty simple. And it’s a practice widely used across various industries but is most recognized for keeping packaged food from going rancid. Think of chip bags, most of which use nitrogen both to preserve and protect food from damage during shipping and storage. 

Nitrogen is odorless, colorless, tasteless, non-irritating, and completely food-safe. It does not impact the taste of your coffee beans beyond the fact that it will keep your coffee tasting fresher for longer.
