The coffee roasting company Cofi Loco offers coffee beans in a reusable glass bottle via its own online store. From the beginning of December 2020, the reusable bottles will also be available in over 150 Edeka stores in North Rhine-Westphalia.
The message is the bottle: According to this motto, the coffee roasting company Cofi Loco is now offering freshly roasted coffee beans in reusable glass bottles. The “Cofi Bottle” can currently be purchased through the Cofi Loco online store and is then shipped with DHL GoGreen. From the beginning of December, the reusable bottles will also be available in over 150 Edeka stores in North Rhine-Westphalia.
Patented “aroma lid”
According to the company, the unique selling point of the “Cofi Bottle” is the patented “aroma lid”, in whose development the team invested several months. Directly after roasting, the coffee is filled into the bottles and sealed. The bean continues to mature in the bottle, because the design allows the excess pressure to escape very gently through a perforated filter in the lid. This ensures that the full aroma remains in the bottle. The coffee should then be stored in the refrigerator. “The cold and the darkness preserve the aroma,” emphasizes company founder Uwe Prommer.
The entrepreneur from Siegburg founded the gastronomy brand Poco Loco several years ago and has been independent since 2015 with the coffee roasting company Cofi Loco. The manufactory roasts and refines according to its own specifications using traditional methods and uses only certified organic beans. “We thought for a long time about how best to package the coffee using the zero waste approach,” reports Prommer. “Eventually, the idea of the Cofi Bottle was born, an environmentally friendly and aroma-friendly deposit system for coffee packaging.”
