We want to bring together something that at first glance does not fit together:
Indulgence at the touch of a button and sustainability.
Can organic coffee from capsules be sustainable?
Pleasure with a clear conscience
With Polaris, UniCaps presents a technologically and materially sophisticated coffee capsule that enables filling, long storage and preparation of great-tasting coffee at the highest level. The oxygen barrier of Polaris is comparable to the oxygen barrier of aluminum capsules and ensures the preservation and subsequent development of coffee aromas, as well as the minimum shelf life of conventional capsules made of plastic or aluminum.
Our second generation bio-capsules (PHA-based) enable faster composting than standard bio-plastic capsule solutions (PLA-based). Moreover, unlike PLA, PHA is also degradable in home compost. PHA is an invention of nature and is naturally produced by the bacterium Bacillus Megaterium. Thus, PHA is 100% from nature.
