How should I dispose your coffee capsules once used?
Our coffee capsules are made with biodegradable, food grade BPA free plastic. This means that once you've enjoyed your coffee, you can simply place the empty capsules in your general waste for it to degrade at an accelerated rate in landfill. You'll be happy to note that our coffee capsules fully degrade in 730 days - the same amount of time for an orange peel to decompose! Find out more about our biodegradable capsules here.
How is your instant Decaf coffee decaffeinated?
Our famous instant coffee is decaffeinated using the Swiss Water Method, which simply uses water & carbon dioxide. This method is the most organic & natural way to decaffeinate beans, as no chemicals are used to strip the caffeine. Using this method allows the beans' natural flavours & aromas to be retained for your maximum enjoyment.
How much caffeine is left over in the decaf?
Due to the lack of harsh chemical use, there will be a slight trace of caffeine in our decaffeinated instant coffee but we can safely guarantee that it is 99.7% caffeine free. To work out how much is in a particular serving, multiply 0.03 by the serving size. For example, in a 150mg serving, there will be approximately 4.5mg of caffeine - that's even less than chocolate!
How is your instant coffee made?
The short answer is that our instant coffee range is freeze-dried, which is a completely natural and chemical-free process. What's freeze-drying, you ask? It's a process that involves grinding the coffee beans then dissolving them in water to concentrate the coffee solution. The coffee extract is then frozen and ground to granule size. These granules are then dried at a low temperature, which is gradually increased in a vacuum system to leave us with our instant coffee!
How are your coffees processed?
All República's coffee products are the loving results of sourcing beans that are grown, roasted & packaged using only organically certified methods. We ourselves are certified by ACO (Australian Certified Organic) guaranteeing that all our products are certified 100% organic.
For the roasting process the raw green coffee beans are fed into the roaster and heated to high temperatures for a set period of time to perfection resulting in blends that highlight the natural qualities of the chosen beans.
How should I store my coffee?
The best place to store our beans is in an air-tight container, away from direct sunlight. It's also best to avoid putting the beans or ground coffee in the fridge as the coffee will absorb the smells of other foods. We recommend that all beans & ground coffee products are consumed within 4 weeks from opening the bag to maintain freshness for your personal enjoyment.
