K-Cup has won the hearts of Americans by its convenience. However, many coffee drinkers have started looking for the single-serve or Keurig-compatible capsules that contain more freshly roasted coffee. If you stand in the long isle of K-Cups in a grocery store, you’ll see shoppers turn the boxes around trying to find the “filling” or manufacturing date of the cups, according to a release from United Home Technologies manufacturers of the iFill, in Vancouver, Wash.
If history is a sign, the new trend of single serve coffee will surely be freshness. Signs like “Roasted & Filled this Month” or even “Roast of the Week” may appear in the single serve coffee isles of grocery stores sooner than we all expected, predicts the company.
iFill machines are designed to enable specialty coffee roasters to “roast, fill and deliver” single-serve cups the same day and to lead this new trend. The iFill is a mid-capacity fill and pack machine that can produce 3,600 K-Cups per hour. It runs on 110v and does not require an air compressor.
“It is the most affordable single serve packing machine in the industry. You can build a $1 million business (2.5 million-cup capacity) with an investment of $10K,” according to the company. The machine runs from 800 to 9,000 cups per hour and can produce 7.5 million capsules a years. Learn more : www.ifillcup.com
