Pure enjoyment, without caffeine: Naturata lupin coffee makes for soothing moments to savour. The harmonious blend of lupins, rye and chicory develops its strong, full-bodied aroma and a delicate crema when you add hot water. Since lupin coffee is caffeine-free and very easily digestible, it can be enjoyed without hesitation at any time of the day. Incidentally, the lupin is a valuable crop in organic agriculture since it feeds nutrients to the soil.
Due to the special manufacturing process used, the instant coffee is gluten-free. First, the individual ingredients are partially malted, roasted, coarsely ground and blended. Next, the roasted and crushed ingredients are brewed to produce a concentrated coffee extract. The powder including the proteins prolamin and glutelin which together constitute gluten and are responsible for intolerance is insoluble and remains in the filter. At this point, the grain coffee is therefore already gluten-free. In the next step, the liquid extract is instantised, in other words it is transformed into a fine powder by spray drying and then packaged. To ensure that no gluten, or even traces of it, is contained in its range of instant coffees, Naturata carries out regular analyses. The gluten content is consistently found to be below the limit of detection.

Naturata lupin coffee has always been produced at a family-run artisanal business in the Emmental valley in Switzerland.
First, the raw materials are individually roasted. Only then can each ingredient develop its taste to the full. Roasting temperatures vary between 150 and 200 °C. Finding the ideal roasting time, i.e. to avoid burning the lupins, is down to the roaster's years of experience.
Next, the coarsely chopped, roasted constituent parts are blended according to the tried-and-tested recipe. Then extraction can begin: the ingredients are very gently flooded with hot water according to the counter-current principle to produce the coffee extract. This raw mass, 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 spray-drying process gives the coffee its delicate crema. No auxiliary agents are used.
Tips for preparation
Put 1-2 teaspoons (approx. 2.5 g) in each cup and pour on 200 ml of (hot) water. Give it a stir - ready!
Naturata lupin coffee can be enjoyed not only as a hot drink or as iced coffee. It also adds a sophisticated touch to desserts and a host of other dishes.
