There’s nothing quite like that first sip of coffee when you wake up in the morning, and there’s no denying that the much-needed caffeine hit is one of our favourite ways to start the day. But beyond the brew itself, the key to the perfect cup of coffee is in the experience – and from intense aromas to rich flavours, it’s an immersive ritual loved by millions around the world.
Of course, not just any kind of coffee will do, and connoisseurs know that the blend you choose can make or break the entire experience. It doesn’t get much better than Italian coffee, and luxurious Neopolitan brand Kimbo, created by the quality-focused Rubino brothers, is the perfect pick. From its coffee plantations to its factories, right down to the technology used to bring its decadent blends to life, Kimbo pays close attention to the finest of details throughout. The roasting process is handled meticulously, by a highly-trained team who understand exactly what it takes to create the best coffee in the world – and just one sip of your first cup of Kimbo is enough to have you hooked.
Offering up a range of ground coffees, coffee beans, compostable coffee capsules and pods, the brand caters to every kind of coffee drinker, but one thing remains the same across all of its different formulations, and that is its impeccable taste.
The newest addition to the Kimbo line is its Macinato Fresco pods in a renewed bar formula, which is designed to make each cup of coffee creamier and more intense than before, made from a decadent dark roast that promises an intense and alluring taste. The perfect choice for coffee connoisseurs who are eager to recreate that barista-style brew from the comfort of their own homes.
Always attentive to the evolution of trends in the sector, Kimbo’s renewal of its original Macinato Fresco formula aims to remain faithful to its traditional taste – something that has won it a cult following over the years – whilst adding even more character to every cup. An icon of Kimbo’s roasting talent, the blend is a favourite amongst Neapolitans, and the new, creamier bar formula pod brings out all of the aromatic and organoleptic qualities for an elevated drinking experience all-round.
The new pods are also designed with sustainability in mind, and are both organic and fully compostable. The product boxes themselves, meanwhile, are made from recyclable paper, while the inner sachet is disposable in plastic – ensuring that each and every element of the product has been considered with the environment at their heart.
Thanks to Kimbo’s evident commitment to sustainability, the brand’s Macinato Fresco pods have already been recognised by TUV Austria with the prestigious OK Compost certification, which guarantees that a product meets the stringent requirements of the UNI EN 13432 standard after undergoing thorough laboratory analysis.
TUV Austria is internationally renowned for its assessments of product quality and safety, as well as of factors like energy consumption and overall environmental impact, and the Macinato Fresco pods display the OK Compost mark with pride.
The new bar coffee pods aren’t the only recent launch to be making waves from Kimbo of late, as this summer it brought an innovative coffee-flavoured beverage to the market. Kimbo Sparkling Coffee is a unique and rejuvenating soft drink designed to serve as an alternative to the traditional hot cup of coffee, and although it’s certainly unusual, it has received an excellent reception from customers so far. Designed to be enjoyed directly from the can, or served over ice and lemon, it can also be used as the base for a refreshing yet uplifting cocktail. Sparkling espresso martini, anyone?
The product was first unveiled back in August, in the evocative and breath-takingly beautiful settings of Sardinia and the island of Capri, during the prestigious Premio Faraglioni event, of which Kimbo was main sponsor. Kimbo Sparkling Coffee has been available in large-scale retail stores since September.
It’s perhaps its commitment to innovation and disruption of the coffee industry that ensures this unique Neapolitan coffee brand always stands out from the crowd, and alongside its impeccable Italian blends and intense aromas and tastes, it’s almost impossible not to fall in love with it. If you try one new coffee in 2022, then make it Kimbo, because it certainly won’t disappoint even the most particular of coffee connoisseurs, and it might just become your new favourite.
