Who owns Percol coffee?

Brand Percol coffee is the creation of Brian Chapman who is also the director of Food Brands Group. He created the brand in 1987.

A brief history of Percol

Percol was the first coffee brand to achieve Fairtrade certification in 2003 and also the first coffee brand to use single origin and single estate bean. This then led to more awareness about the provenance and characteristics of other coffees. By 2007 the company was worth ten million pounds.

Percol coffee

Percol coffee was the first ground coffee brand to be Fairtrade certified, and it is from organic and single-origin beans. It is plastic-free and packed in recyclable material. Percol coffee comes in jars that are slim and practical. Each time you open the jar, you release an aroma that every coffee lover craves in the morning.

Is Percol Coffee Organic

All Percol's grounds and beans are organic, bar the Delicious Decaf. In addition, the entire iced coffee range is organic, as well as our rich roast instant coffee and coffee bags.

Is the Percol coffee packaging really compostable or biodegradable?

The first thing you’ll see on the Percol coffee packaging is the plastic-free logo.

Why plastic-free packaging?

Plastic packaging is wasteful and impacts the earth's ecosystem and causes harm to humans, animals, and plants through toxic pollutants. It takes several years for plastic to fully break down so the effects are long term. Buying items with plastic-free packaging is the best way to save the earth's ecosystem and Brand Percol is helping lead in that direction.

What’s the difference between biodegradable and compostable?

These two terms are used interchangeable to describe different processes that curb consumer waste. Compostable products are biodegradable but not all biodegradable items are compostable. An obvious difference between the two terms is that biodegradable items can break down into few elements, while compostable items leave humus behind, which is a single organic material.

All biodegradable items are disintegrated into natural elements (such as carbon dioxide) with the help of other biological processes. Products that are said to be biodegradable must turn into organic matter, they take several months to break down but that’s better when compared to synthetic products that take nearly forever to decompose. Biodegradable products are good for the environment.

Where can people buy Percol coffee?

If you do your shopping online you can find a stock of Percol coffee on amazon and other online stores. You can buy the Americano 10 bags pack at the price of £3.49

Why are Percol coffee bags a big thing right now?

If you live your life on the go then you need the convenience that comes with making the strong best cup of coffee without the fuss. With easy to make directions, plastic-free bags at an affordable price these are ones to consider.

Are Percol coffee bags worth spending money on?

These coffee bags take away all the fuss of making coffee from loose grounds. They contain coffee that’s been ground down from whole coffee beans and added straight to the bag without adding or removing anything from them. This lets you enjoy the strong cup of coffee you desire without putting much work into it.

What's good about Percol coffee bags?

Every bag is specially packed to lock in the flavour, rich taste, and aroma so every customer can taste strength and convenience in a cup. And to get the best experience the directions are easy; just add the coffee bag to the mug, fill with freshly boiled water, stir, leave to brew for 3-4 minutes, squeeze your bag with a spoon and taste the richness.
