Do fresh roasted capsules make a difference ?
For maximum enjoyment it's critical to use fresh roasted coffee and this is also true for your choice of Nespresso-compatible coffee capsules.
We have extensive experience in creating single-serve, portion-control coffee developed over 13 years and this is our latest generation Nespresso compatible coffee capsule product - it's also our very best.
There are less just a handful (count them on 1 hand) of coffee capsule plants in Australia - so with more thousands of capsule sellers making claims their products are high quality and fresh, the truth is very few of them roast coffee and none of them own or operate capsule processing plants.
So how do other capsule retailers control quality ?
They can't and it gets worse - they are all forced to buy their capsules made up in bulk by a 3rd part contract converter to save money, so it's often 3 - 6 months old which translates into a stale product.
Capsule sellers have been getting away with flogging stale products for too long.
We are one of the few fully vertically integrated capsule providers in Australia - importing specialty grade and fully certified raw coffees, roasting in our world-class facility, carefully controlling the critical degassing in specialized chambers, advanced grinding mills and our customized capsule plant producing the highest soluable coffee capsules.
We create a fresher capsule, with higher flavors and amazing aromas.
Working only with high-grade 100% arabica coffee, it's carefully processed into an advanced co-polymer capsule base providing equivalent oxygen barrier protection to aluminium.
Most of the environmentally friendly bio capsules available for sale fail to adequately retain the essential volatile coupounds in fresh roasted and ground coffee. That means the all the things we love about fresh roasted coffee have escaped the bio capsule.
That's right, when fresh roasted coffee is ground there is less than 15 minutes before approx. 70% of the essential volatile compounds in the coffee are lost through oxydization.
Bio capsules promise great benefits at disposal, but the fact is today they still don't provide effective barrier protection which means the coffee is going stale the moment it's produced. It's also a reason why Nespresso genuine capsules are made of aluminium because it's crucial to preserve the volatile compounds of fresh roasted coffee.
100% Arabica because that's what makes the best capsule
Customers tell us our capsules are superior to anything else on the market.
Our capsules taste sweet - not bitter, never bland or harsh and it's all due to our prevailing strategy of using only 100% arabica - compared to the rest of the market that sadly believe burning dark roasted robusta is the only answer to creating sufficient "bite" in a capsule.
The robusta used by other capsule sellers is in fact grown at low altitude with huge amounts of chemicals - absolutely drowning in pesticides and fertilizers.
Robusta is a key element used in almost all coffee capsules and pods along with energy drinks and instant coffee.
Fine quality arabica coffees only grow at high altitude, where the air is thin, cool and pests are literally non-existent.
We don't like robusta, never have and doubt we ever will.
Robusta tastes like wood, rubber and tar and we simply just don't need robusta because we know how to select the right quality arabicas and more importantly we know how to roast it for optimal flavour, sweetness and balance.
Why drink capsules filled with robusta and dangerous chemicals ?
We have used all our best arabica coffees and significant resources into perfecting a balanced capsule experience - we are limited by the grammage of the dose in the Nespresso specification - so we can't put in more ground coffee because that will result in a brew failure.
To make it work requires coffee that is heavily engineered for this special purpose.
We are highly confident our fresh roasted capsules will produce a quality extraction from your Nespresso* compatible capsule machine and offer a degree of versatility across both black and milk-based brews.
Customers tell us you can actually drink our capsule coffee black - it's incredibly sweet and we see customers returning often for more capsules.
For those of you who can't add milk or don't like milk in their coffee, we have the solution for you.

The coffee for these capsules is roasted in small batches and converted in side our capsule plant to ensure freshness - nothing is sent off-site for processing like all the other coffee companies.
Nespresso-compatible "classic" capsules
Our coffee capsules are suitable for Nespresso classic type capsule machines.
The justfreshroasted.com.au coffee capsules are NOT suitable for MAP, Lavazza, Aldi, Caffitaly, Dulce Gusto or the large proprietary Nespresso commercial/automatic systems typically installed in hospitality or beverage outlets.
Our justfreshroasted capsules are roasted right here in Melbourne, Australia by us in our Tier 1 roasting facility, the coffee is stored in special degassing chambers to reach the ideal levels before converted within our own in-house capsule plant.
We control every stage of the product development locally - nothing is out-sourced.
Our overall approach to providing you with exceptional freshness compared to the majority of imported coffee capsules currently sold in the Australian market is what sets us apart.
Capsules are an easy to use, pre-packed serving of coffee that ensures consistent flavour, aroma and strength with a minimum of mess.
Capsule solutions are perfect for the home or business environment were a quality cup of coffee can be created easily and effectively without the skill or maintenance required from traditional espresso equipment.
Shipping and Packaging of coffee capsules
Our capsules are precision manufactured and packaged into an advanced co-polymer capsule base.
We have the industry's best performing capsule base with an OTR rating of 0.0004 cm3/day/capsule giving an effective shelf life of greater than 12 months before reaching 2% O2 level. This performance is on average 10 times better than bio capsules.
Our capsules have equivalent oxygen barrier protection to aluminium, yet the materials used in the construction of the co-polymer capsule base require less than 30% of the carbon footprint compared to aluminum.
Each bag contains 15x 100% arabica coffee capsules and ships in a plain carton for protection.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION YOU MUST READ BEFORE PURCHASING - COMPATABILITY WITH YOUR CAPSULE MACHINE
The term capsule and pod are largely overused words in the coffee industry and people often confuse and interchange when asking or talking about capsules and pods.
It's easy to be confused as capsule and pod machine manufacturers can be often be vague or deceptive when marketing their equipment.
The use of broad terms like support for capsules or pods without stating which standard applies is terribly lazy by equipment makers and it makes the job of sourcing consumables more difficult for customers.
Please be sure you know your own machine model and what type of consumables it uses.
We are a capsule manufacturer producing products to suit Nespresso compatible machines that use the "classic" capsule such as Inissia, Essenza Mini, U, Lattissima One and Touch and Pro, Expert, Prodigio, Citiz, Pixie, Old Essenza, Kitchen Aid and Creatista systems.
If you own a MAP, Philips Senseo, Aldi, Lavazza Blue, Illy, Caffitaly or Dulce Gusto equipment - those machine definitely will not work with our Nespresso compatible coffee capsules and you are advised to contact your equipment seller for details on where to source consumables.
Our capsule base is certified internationally by HANSECONTROL.
Nespresso commercial automatic capsule machines will NOT work with our justfreshroasted Nespresso compatible coffee capsules.
These commercial Nespresso machines utilize a proprietary system - so unfortunately for the time beaing it'a lock-in arrangement whereby you must purchase consumables directly from Nespresso.
Before you purchase a box of our Nespresso compatible coffee capsules, please check your owners manual or if you are in any doubt, please confirm with your machine manufacturer or supplier as to the compatibility of coffee capsules.
We do not sell capsule or pod equipment, therefore we are not able to inform you on whether your machine suits our capsules.
As you can appreciate, we are not in a position to test or validate our capsules on the every increasing range of equipment that is sold in Australia or other parts of the world.
We can assure you 100% that our coffee capsules are made to the precise standard and that grind and dose testing has been expertly measured and adjusted during the capsule conversion process.
NOTE: We have found there are significant differences in operating performance amongst the various branded Nespresso capsule machines.
Even the same model machines from De Longhi and Breville (which are actually made by De Longhi under license anyway) can run at different temperatures and slightly different extraction times.
Temperature is the most important aspect in running a capsule machine and the differences observed have totally astounded us during side-by-side comparisons of same model equipment - some worked well, others not so.
We cannot be held responsible for any damage to your equipment.
Nespresso U machine customers please note:-
Customers owning the Nespresso U machines are advised to get a full extraction you will need to use the largest extraction setting and stop the pour once you have enough coffee.
Due to the design of the U machines, water can leak into the waste tray for the first few seconds until it builds up enough pressure. This is a machine design issue, not a capsule issue.
The other Nespresso machines are fine (except the commercial and automatic loading version) to just use normal extraction settings.
NOTE: the colour of the capsule base may change from time to time based upon our production inventory and availability of the materials from Europe as the capsule base is made outside of Australia.
For the purposes of illustration, we have shown the black capsule base in our images, but there could be orange, green, blue, red or white capsules. This does not impact the performance of the capsule or the coffee packed inside.
* Nespresso is a trademark owned by Societe Des Products Nestle SA and is used in our documents, articles and listings in a descriptive capacity only. We are not affiliated with, supported or endorsed by Nespresso (Societe Des Products Nestle SA). Our intent is to define a purpose that our coffee capsules are compatible with and operate successfully in capsule machines that use certain licensed Nespresso technology.
Nespresso capsules have just 5g of ground coffee and it's not possible to increase the dosage without causing brew failures.
So, with just 5g of coffee we are trying to achieve flavors that consumers are accustomed in cafes using on average 20g, or more than 400% more coffee.
You can see now why the engineering behind capsules is somewhat restrictive and challenging - it's not possible to increase the dosage and we don't want to use harsh, bitter coffees that have terrible "bite".
With more than 13 years of single-serve portion control experience, we fully understand the dynamics of flavour versus sweetness. Coffee is not about terrible taste, it should be rewarding and memorable.
There are only a small number of coffee capsule plants in Australia - we are one of them. This gives us incredible flexibility not only with quality but also freshness as all our competitors are contract converters that are only concerned about volume and cost, not quality.
This full vertical integration is what sets us apart from every other capsule seller in Australia and enables us to manage the freshness in an entirely different manner, ensuring you receive the best possible capsule experience available.
