November 1, 2021, Vancouver, BC — NEXE Innovations Inc. (“NEXE” or the “Company”), (TSXV: NEXE) (OTC Markets: NEXNF) (Frankfurt: NX5), a leader in plant-based materials manufacturing, is pleased to announce that its coffee pods using its proprietary filter system are available to purchase at nexecoffee.com. The fully-compostable, plant-based pods, are compatible with Keurig® single-serve brewing systems.
The NEXE Pod is made using plant-based materials and is the result of over six years of research and development. Both the NEXE Keurig® and Nespresso® pod formats break down in as few as 35 days in a municipal composting facility, approximately the time it takes for an apple core to decompose.
“After more than 6 years of R&D, we are delivering on our promise to bring to market a fully compostable coffee capsule made for Keurig® brewing systems that utilizes the original Keurig® design. The original Keurig® capsule was engineered to be self-protected, prevent exposure to oxygen and water vapor, maintaining freshness. It was a challenge to meet these requirements while staying true to our mandate to construct a pod from plant-based renewable materials that is fully compostable. We not only met our goals, but we also exceeded them. Our patented design increases coffee extraction, providing a better tasting and bolder cup of coffee, every brew,” said Darren Footz, CEO of NEXE.
Grown in the mountains of Peru, the new blend uses 100% certified organic beans and is roasted to perfection for a rich and balanced flavour, medium acidity, with hints of brown sugar, lime, and an apple finish. The NEXE Coffee selection is available in three different roasts:
o Medium Roast
o Medium-Dark Roast
o Dark Roast
Each new blend is available in packages of 12 or 24 pods.
