Australian coffee roastery AllPress has created its first espresso capsule inspired from its Espresso Blend as an accessible option for people to have at home. 

The Espresso Blend has been ground ‘super-finely’ and reformulated to highlight its sweet caramel flavour. To recreate the original flavour of the café coffee, the grounds have been roasted at high temperatures to amplify the solubility of the coffee. 

AllPress head roaster Zach Dowse said: “Most pods met our expectations when it came to flavour so we took the time to challenge the status quo and worked on creating a product that we felt stood up to the expectations of Allpress coffee consumers.” 

Customer feedback and research commissioned by AllPress found that 65 per cent of café drinkers also drank coffee at home, with one in three using a capsule or pod machine. 

“After rounds of trying, testing and perfecting, we reached a point where we were able to achieve the iconic Allpress Espresso Blend flavour, adjusted uniquely as a capsule,” said Dowse. 

The AllPress capsule is available in a 10 pack for RRP: $12.00. 

AllPress has been in the coffee industry for more than three decades and was recently acquired by Asahi Beverages in April.
