1, What is coffee capsule?
Although the capsule is a drink, it has a name like medicine. But the name does vividly reflect the characteristics of coffee capsules, which, like medicinal capsules, contain powdery substances in their gelatinous packaging. The advantage of coffee capsule is that because the texture of the capsule wall is relatively hard and the prototype is well maintained at high temperature, high-pressure water vapor can be injected into the capsule, so that the coffee can completely separate out the rich espresso with crema (coffee fat) under the effect of pressure, which can better ensure the mellow coffee. The brands that produce coffee capsules mainly include Nespresso of Nestle, Keurig of Green Mountain, Oro of Italy (ovo, Lavazza, monodor, ecaffe of Gaggia and allcream of Hanpai, etc
2, What is the market prospect of coffee capsule?
According to JOYGOAL :
In the past few years, the world's coffee industry has maintained a growth rate of 5% - 7%, but the growth rate of instant coffee has stagnated, mainly from the ground coffee, including the demand from the upgrading of instant coffee and milk tea products. With the consumption upgrading, for these mainstream coffee consumers, more and more attention is paid to the quality of coffee, but most of them can only go to the coffee shop to drink instant coffee, which does cause a lot of inconvenience for young people with fast pace of life. Therefore, the emergence of coffee capsule just caters to this demand, and it will certainly rush to eat some consumers of its type of coffee products, especially those who pursue cost performance or convenience. Therefore, the future market of coffee capsule is still very considerable.

Large capacity, 4000-20000 coffee capsules can be produced per hour.
It has a high potential of customization and can design various functions according to specific requirements.
But at the same time, the floor space will be larger.
Stable performance, can produce 2000-3000 coffee capsules per hour
It can be used for small space, fixed functions and standardized functions.
At the same time, the occupied space is relatively small and the transportation is convenient. Generally applicable to small and medium-sized manufacturers.
