THE NEW LINE-UP
IS BOCCA GETTING A NEW LOOK?
Your trusted coffees get new packaging starting July. And the contents? Bocca Coffee the way you know it, both in flavour and quality. Simultaneously, we introduce a new way to categorize our familiar line-up: 7 different ‘Year Round’ coffees, each with its own name, identity and a clearly described flavour profile. The ‘Specials’ are now recognizable by their red packaging line. To answer questions you might have, we put the answers on this FAQ page.
WHY HAVE YOU CHANGED THE PACKAGING?
Because we want to give more insight in the story behind Bocca. With the new design, we emphasize this connection. Furthermore, these bags no longer contain foil but are fully plastic. That means you can sort the packaging from other waste and put it in the plastic recycling bin. Causing less harm to the environment, without compromising the freshness of the beans!
WHAT TYPE OF PLASTIC ARE THE NEW BAGS MADE OF?
The packaging is 100% plastic. This means you can sort the packaging from other waste and put it in the plastic recycling bin. It is composite plastic (number 7), consisting of PET/PET-Alox/PE-WIT (ala-free).
WHAT IS THE STORY BEHIND THE DESIGN AND THE PACKAGING?
The green of the Year Rounds refers to our respect for nature. The red of the Specials refers to the soil in Ethiopia; the birthplace of coffee. The landscape silhouette stands for the ultimate feeling of being on the road: for origin, coffee pioneering, and our customer. Someone who loves traveling the world, exploring, and who will cycle the extra five minutes for the perfect cup of coffee.
WHAT IS THE REASON FOR A NEW CATEGORISATION OF THE COFFEE LINE-UP?
It enables us to form long term commitments to and partnerships with our farmers, so we can guarantee constant delivery of top quality coffees.
WHAT EXACTLY ARE THESE YEAR ROUND COFFEES?
These are 7 coffees that are available throughout the whole year. Each coffee has its own unique flavour profile consisting of three key words, and its own 'perfect roast'. This means it is roasted specifically to fit that bean best. The Year Rounds are named: The Blend, Gusto, Bombita, Easy Rider, Soulmate, Ethiopia and Decaf.
WHAT ARE THE SPECIALS?
These are seasonal single origin coffees. They come from unique lots and are limited in availability. Extra Special! For instance, our Ethiopian Gesha Village, which every year has one of the best cupping profiles in the world!
WHERE CAN I FIND INFORMATION ON THE ORIGIN OF MY COFFEE?
On the back of each package you will find a short description. Besides that, this new website shows the stories and images of our farmers, as well as specific coffee facts for each and every coffee. Each package contains a QR-code, which directly leads to the product page of that specific coffee on our website. Information can also be found on our factsheets, which are available on those product pages as well.
THE PERFECT ROAST
In our new line-up, each coffee has its own perfect roast. This means no difference between filter and espresso, but each coffee is roasted specifically to fit that bean best.
HOW DOES THIS CHANGE AFFECT ME?
Not at all. The coffee familiar to you only gets a new cover, and in some cases a new name.
FROM WHEN ON CAN I SEE THIS NEW LOOK?
It will be available to everyone starting September 2018. You don't have to do anything but wait for your favourite coffee in its new bag to be delivered to your place.
CAN I COME AND TASTE THE COFFEES?
Sure! From end of July 2018, the coffees are available in our bar at Kerkstraat 96, Amsterdam.
