Flavia Beverage Systems

Jump to navigation Jump to search

FLAVIA is a hot beverage system that prepares single servings of coffee, tea, and hot chocolate drinks. The brand is owned by Mars Drinks, a division of Mars, Incorporated, and competes with Keurig's K-Cup system.[citation needed]


FLAVIA claims its patented technology brews drinks in a single serve "Fresh Pack" which means that the pack is the actual brewing chamber.[citation needed] The drink pours directly from the packet into the cup, rather than through a common channel, so that each drink is not tainted by the previously brewed drink. Used packs are collected in a tray that is then emptied periodically when prompted.[citation needed]

The Fresh Packs are foil-sealed, thus protecting the ground coffees and teas from oxygen and moisture. FLAVIA markets several different machines, such as large coin-operated machines and small portable machines designed for home use.[citation needed]
