The instant grain coffee has been produced from the start with much dedication by a small Swiss company with a long tradition. Careful roasting of the individual ingredients as well as gentle extraction result in a particularly mild, complex flavour. A sophisticated spray drying process produces a delicate crema, which brings that genuine coffee house feeling to your own home.
Prior to roasting, the chicory roots, acorns and figs are chopped and dried; the grain is malted for 1-3 days. During the malting process, the grain, rye and barley, is soaked until it germinates. Next, all constituent parts are gently roasted individually. Here, the experience of the roaster plays a decisive role: the roasting process should neither be too long nor too short. Each individual ingredient is roasted for the appropriate time required to achieve a harmonious composition.
The roasted ingredients are then coarsely ground and extraction can begin: this involves the ingredients being very gently flooded with hot water according to the countercurrent principle. A sort of grain coffee is prepared which is subsequently thickened.
The resulting brown coffee concentrate, with 25 % dry matter, is sprayed as a fine mist in a tall spraying tower. The liquid content of the droplets is extracted as they fall through a current of hot air. What arrives at the bottom is dried instant coffee powder.
This time-consuming production process, including the final spray-drying step, is responsible for the delicate crema ? similar to a freshly brewed pure coffee ? which the grain coffee gets when water is added. No auxiliary agents are used.
