Café culture is booming. As the world’s most popular drink, two billion cups of coffee are consumed every day – and tea is a very close second.

But in recent years, consumer habits have changed. People are no longer choosing to drink freeze-dried granules; they’re opting for fresh, high-quality coffee from ground beans.

Teabags have been freely available for a long time. And now, Nonwovenn has developed a range of superior bags for brewing single-serve fresh coffee drinks. They are not only a commercial reality but an attractive alternative to traditional brewing methods.
