SANTENA, Italy, May 19, 2018Caffè Vergnano is proud to announce that their Èspresso1882 compostable capsules have received the 2018 Food and Beverage Awards (FABI) from the National Restaurant Association® for innovative and sustainable technology.

Èspresso1882 compostable capsules combine Caffè Vergnano's Italian know-how in roasting and blending coffee with a perfect green solution and compatibility with Nespresso machines. The box and wrapper have been developed to adapt to eco-sustainable recycling standards, providing an excellent espresso without guilt.

The Èspresso1882 compostable range is much more than a new product: it is the result of careful research following Caffè Vergnano's commitment to the eco-sustainability and a concrete answer to the amount of waste deriving from the growing consumption of portioned coffee.

Caffè Vergnano will be exhibiting at the National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show®, May 19-22 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Visitors will have the opportunity to discover and taste the authentic Espresso Italiano inside Caffe Vergnano US supplier Atalanta's booth (#2409)
