Freshpack explained

Developed by MARS drinks the innovative freshpack system was designed with one aim in mind, to keep the ingredients as fresh upon delivery as the day they were encapsulated within the pack.

  • Each freshpack contains ingredients and a filter. When the predetermined quantity of hot water is passed through the freshpack nozzle it mixes with the ingredients and brews the perfect cup of coffee or tea.
  • Because the volume of coffee, tea or hot chocolate that is inside the freshpack is measured and remains constant a consistently great tasting drink can be guaranteed.
  • The Alterra coffee range is split into two categories:
    • Origin (coffee beans are procured from a single source - ie. Ethiopia, Sumatra, Colombia)
    • Blend (two or more coffees are bleneded together to create a great tasting flavour)

The FLAVIA barista, FLAVIA C500 and FLAVIA C400 all exclusively use the freshpack system and have proven to be the office favourite thanks to their consistency, freshness, ease-of use, reliability and the great range of coffee, tea and hot chocolate available from the range.
