Our range of coffee pods are made by Rombouts & Malongo who are Europe’s most exclusive roasting house, founded in Antwerpen, Belgium, in 1896. Malongo is its sister company in Nice, France. The company is still family-owned and is proud of its traditions and its passion for coffee. We use only the best Arabica beans in our coffee. The plantations that are high up in the mountains often have really good conditions for a better flavor and quality. We handpick only ripe berries for the sake of the flavor. If we need to add some extra strength, we use premium grade Robusta beans. Our coffee is finally slowly roasted for 20 minutes in a low temperature around 230 C to bring out all the aromas. We offer pods that are suitable for a small espresso, 4-10 cl, and pods suitable for a large espresso, 10-14 cl. The quantity of ready coffee you get from one pod depends on how the coffee is ground. The pods are sold in boxes of 12 pods or in big packs with 192 pods.
Rombouts & Malongo was the first coffee roasting house to cooperate with Fairtrade as early as 1992 and has since then been the leading roasting house of Fairtrade coffee in Europe. They had a unique commitment to Fairtrade farming right from the start and currently have a personal relationship with each cooperative, which they visit and inspect each year. Normal cooperatives just buy beans. Since 2007, Rombouts & Malongo has sponsored the Malongo Foundation with an aim to support projects in healthcare, to protect children and to address other social issues with local Fairtrade organizations. They annually support projects at different Fairtrade cooperatives in ecological cultivation and local transportation systems.

16 BARS PRESSURE
Xpress’Oh works with 16 bars pressure for an optimal extraction, which gets the most out of the coffee flavors in each pod and will give you the best result in your cup. The specific outlet of the patented brewing unit of this espresso machine also generates a great crema on your coffee.
QUALITY MEETS FUNCTIONALITY
Besides making a perfect espresso with great crema, the Xpress’Oh also excels in functionality. As such it is equipped with a sensor to prevent water leakage when lifting the water tank. To top it off, this espresso machine is finished with an ergonomic handle to assure ease of use.
The Xpress’Oh does not need a limescale water filter, but it requires a cleaning process to be performed twice a year in order to remove any limescale that might be trapped inside the system. Failure to run the cleaning process might cause the machine to stop functioning.
