Coffee is among the world’s most popular beverages. However, even small problems during its production process can greatly impact its taste. That’s because once the bean is roasted and ground, it starts to age and its freshness starts to decline. That is why nitrogen for coffee production is so important. As an inert gas, nitrogen plays a central role in the coffee packaging process. And when you make Pneumatech your nitrogen generation partner, you can make sure that your coffee always retains its optimal taste.
Nitrogen expels the oxygen and moisture that can make coffee go stale. To maintain the flavor of the coffee and extend its lifetime, its packaging is inerted with nitrogen. This includes all forms of final coffee products, including roasted beans, ground coffee, coffee pods, and bulk bags. Some roasteries also use nitrogen in the coffee roasting itself and for storage degassing.
Because it is indispensable for roasteries, nitrogen for coffee production has to meet specific requirements:
Many coffee roasteries still purchase their industrial gases – even though producing your nitrogen on-site offers more advantages. Here are just four:
