12 Things You Didn't Know About Nespresso Capsules

 

If you're a coffee-lover, then you know that Nespresso is the best way to get your morning or afternoon pick-me-up. You can find these Nespresso pods in many online grocery stores and convenience stores around town. But do you know what's inside those pods? In this blog post, we'll take a look at 12 things about Nespresso capsules that might surprise you!

- Nespresso capsules are not recyclable. Unlike traditional coffee pods, these capsules aren't made of aluminum but plastic. So they can't be recycled with your other plastics and must be thrown away separately in the trash bin instead.

- Nespresso was a fairly new company when it began selling its products in Europe in 1986, but today it is considered an industry leader for coffee makers around the world. In 2010 alone, more than one billion single-serve portions were sold worldwide!

- The very first capsule contained only two ingredients: instant coffee and sugar granules that dissolve quickly after brewing to allow you to drink up right away before any residue settles at the bottom of the cup or mug - something good enough reason to not be wasteful.

- The coffee that Nespresso uses is 100% Arabica beans, grown on sustainable plantations in South America and Africa by local farmers who are given fair trade prices for their products. This has allowed them to grow more crops while also protecting the environment around them - it's truly a win-win!

- There are over 400 different varieties of coffees available from Nespresso with flavors ranging from caramel to hazelnut and so much more. You'll never get bored drinking the same flavor every day because there's no limit as to how many you can try! Just remember: once you take out a capsule after brewing it, don't let your drink sit too long, or else all that crema on top will start to go away.

- Nespresso capsules are made out of aluminum so you can store them in the fridge for up to three months without affecting taste! That means even if you want some coffee for tomorrow, it's always possible since they're airtight and waterproof. Just make sure not to open the capsule until you're ready to brew it though or else all that great aromatherapy is going to disappear into thin air.

- The official term used by Nespresso when brewing their capsules is "pads" instead of "capsules." This has something to do with how flat the individual pods are designed - only .07 inches thick! But don't worry about your machine malfunctioning because these pads work with all Nespresso machines.

- In 2001, the company introduced a recycling program where customers could return their used aluminum capsules to receive ten free coffees as well as an additional five percent off their next order! This led to a total of 20 billion pods recycled since then and counting! That's more than 160 million pounds of trash that were kept out of landfills - it really makes you think twice before throwing away something so useful again.

- If you're worried about wasting electricity by keeping your machine plugged in after brewing coffee, there is no need for concern because these devices only draw power when they are turned on or heating up water for use - once those two tasks have been completed, everything shuts down automatically until the next time you want to use it.

- Nespresso machines are incredibly intuitive with LED screens and buttons that clearly display how much coffee is left inside your machine at all times - there's even a countdown timer on the front of each one so you know exactly when that delicious cup will be ready! It really couldn't get any easier or simpler than this, right?

- Lastly, Nespresso capsules brew within 25 seconds every single time thanks to their high-pressure systems which infuse water through tiny holes in the top part of the pod where coffee grounds have been placed beforehand. This system makes sure no flavor is lost between brewing periods by having nothing but crema come out once it has finished its cycle. You'll never go back to drip coffee again!
