100% Biodegradable bag
Plastic was invented more than 100 years and it’s harmful for humans, animals and plants because of its toxic pollutants. Plastic does not easily break down; we are talking about hundreds or even thousands of years.
As a company, we are striving towards more sustainability, looking at it as a never-ending journey. In our sustainability commitment, we are considering packaging as a key area of improvement.
High Quality Coffee Beans
It all starts with high quality coffee beans.
For that reason, we are working closely together with the best coffee farmers in Lam Dong Province, who understand and follow our strict requirements regarding fertilizer management, harvesting techniques, ripeness of coffee cherries and drying processes.
We monitor these processes carefully as it strongly influences the flavor potential of our coffee products.
Different Way of Drying for
the best Flavors
There are different ways to process and dry coffee beans.
Belvico’s honey processed and natural greenhouse dried coffee has created a new set of premium flavours, attracting consumers who are looking for authentic, new coffee aromas
Perfect Coffee Every Time
Roasting Technology is crucial for consistent quality.
Therefore, we have invested in the latest, fully automatic roasting technology from Europe, which enables us to create our own, unique roasting profiles
Food Safety in coffee needs more attention.
We prioritize the health of our clients at Belvico and invested in coffee testing in a Foreign Food Lab for each new crop of coffee. See one of our lab results via here. Furthermore, we are setting up HACCP certification, expected to be in place by mid-2021 – which monitors and controls food safety standards in coffee.
It was quite a challenge to establish a solid cooperation between the Coffee Farmers and our Coffee Company. Systematically changing Coffee Farming management was tough, even for the son of a Coffee Farmer. (Link to ous story)
Our Roastery simply needed higher quality coffee beans to consistently offer authentic and unique coffee flavors to our clients. To do so, we had to get deeply involved in the coffee farming itself.
THE FOUR FLAVOUR PROFILES OF COFFEE
Depending on the coffee variety, processing techniques, drying methods and roasting profiles, our different types of coffee are categorized into four flavor profiles.
