Kabioca celebrates its one year anniversary,

Cattherine GUAY

One year ago, we at Kabioca received the first boxes of our finalized packaging and could finally enjoy the intense and complex taste of our work for the first time. With these boxes, we set up for our first exhibition in Paris and that’s how we started the growing success of our sales with the full Kabioca range.

This was the first milestone in our project. “The most effective way to manage change is to create it” – are the words of Peter Drucker which illustrate the spirit of our project.

The change came from our desire to enjoy a practical, organic and premium coffee without having to concede on environmental impact. With this in mind, we set off on our passionate quest for a great coffee but also a natural and sustainable capsule that offered the perfect performance, guaranteeing the perfect coffee break. Since that day we have shared hundreds of coffees with friends, partners, co-workers , customers – to arrive one year ago to our finalized product range for Kabioca. Enjoy the moment, live the future.

Since then, we have delivered more than 500 000 capsules throughout the world. That is as many moments shared and enjoyed around the world. Through this product we have also helped save more than half a ton of pure aluminium.

We would like to thank all our early adopters, our friends and customers for their help and support. It is also the opportunity for us to reflect on the hard work and cooperation we have received from our partners as well as other integral actors in the Kabioca team. Antoine and Norbert that have been at the forefront of presenting the products. Christina, Christine, Saran, Sharzad and Pascale have all helped in developing this product and making it come to life and ready for the years to come.

Now we are here with you, to continue this collective adventure in our pursuit to fuel a positive future …with excellent coffee

Kabioca, enjoy the moment, live the future

"The cafe on the terrace"

Brigitte LECLECH

Did you know that there are more than 300 000 cafes and restaurants in France? Almost 15 000 of which are in inner Paris?

For almost two and a half months, it was forbidden for bars, cafes and restaurants to welcome and serve their customers. This period thus marked an imposed break in the French love story with the terrace café.

But since 1ere June, everyone can relight this flame.

After the provisional cycle paths, in Paris from 1ere June - the creation / extension of coffee terraces is in place. It was the solution proposed in particular to allow cafetiers and restaurateurs to compensate for the loss of space related to health instructions and to reassure customers.

Building on its success, and in order to support the activity of this professional category, the town hall of Paris even allowed the extension of this measure until September 30.

So - "Little coffee on the terrace? "

And why is Kabioca talking to you about outdoor cafes?

Because at Kabioca, we love coffee, whether it's at home, at the counter or in the office. We love this quick moment shared in town, or the long hours spent watching people go alone or in a group

We love these moments of conviviality shared with friends and even with strangers. It's less a matter of taste - Russian roulette than the bar cafe can be! - just a question of sharing.

So we are happy to see our friends the restaurateurs reopen their doors and have access to these terraces and we wish them a lot of courage for the recovery and give them our full support!

You can always go home, afterwards, and enjoy a Kabioca espresso - extract in the rules of the art, the result of our work of selection of origins and a perfect mastery of roasting. A good and organic coffee. And finally, because this period highlighted our environmental impact - you will know that the Kabioca capsule, 100% natural and bio-based 4 stars is biodegradable and compostable.

Kabioca, live the moment, let's live the future.


The coffee break - The impact of COVID 19 on this practice

Cattherine GUAY

According to an IFOP study conducted for Nespresso Business Solutions, three-quarters of workers drink at least one coffee during their working day and almost one in two (47%) starts their working day with a cup of coffee.

At a time when deconfinement is gradually starting, offices are reopening and adapting to the "next day" Like video-aperitifs, employees everywhere have set up video-cafes. In their personal and professional lives, everyone adapts.

In addition to the fundamental changes that will take place in society, at Kabioca we ask the question of how to combine conviviality and distancing. During confinement we tasted our coffees at home, some pushing the experience to share it with a neighbor on the landing or balcony.

Now that it's back to work, what about the coffee break? Will it be a vestige of the past? A tradition from days gone by?

We hope not. And we are campaigning for the return of this practice and here is why:

First of all, we must remember the general instructions, as indicated in the website of the government, several reflexes are to be adopted to protect you:

  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Cough and sneeze into the elbow or a handkerchief
  • Use a single-use tissue
  • Greet from a distance, without contact
  • Respect a distance of one meter from your neighbor

By taking these precautions, and by scrupulously respecting them, you limit the risks in business and you can always share a coffee with colleagues, a moment of conviviality and precious exchange.

The capsules have a format perfectly suited to these practices. They minimize handling around the machine and between people. In addition, they avoid cross-contamination with a capsule pre-dosed in a protective atmosphere.

AWith Kabioca, you are ready for this new generation coffee break.

And it's worth it:

The coffee break is much more than a moment of conviviality, it is a privileged moment of exchange that allows so many things. It is a vector of social ties, breaking down barriers between teams and hierarchy. Some even say that the coffee break can be a truce and ease tensions. Like what coffee does not irritate that much!

It is a moment when dialogue is facilitated, certainly a meter away now - but it is an informal moment when consensus is more easily obtained.

Finally, it is an opportunity to exchange ideas, experiences, anecdotes and know-how - all more or less professional. This open-mindedness which animates the employees during this break makes it a real booster of creativity.

Like what, Kabioca is perhaps the coffee break today. Same but a little different. Always as practical, our capsule protects exceptional coffee from organic farming. Its 100% natural capsule is made up of more than 95% of renewable materials and energy. Finally, it is biodegradable and compostable - allowing this new coffee break to be a real step towards better environmental balance.
