Packaging

Costa Rica capsules by Jumbo come in vividly coloured plastic bags decorated with nice, modern graphic pattern. The streamlined and nicely coloured plastic capsules are capped with aluminium foil. This combination of materials makes them non-biodegradable and difficult to recycle. The description on the packaging promises intense coffee with pleasant acidity. The intensity rating is 6 out of 12.
