St Remio, an Australian coffee brand, has launched its first sustainably sourced organic product range, which fits in the Aldi Expressi coffee machine.
St Remio’s own patented technology the Bio-Organic pod is compatible with the Aldi Expressi machine, giving consumers choice outside the Expressi range. The new range is the only system available on the market which can be used with the Aldi machine.
Having originally founded the coffee brand to empower female farmers in Rwanda, the launch of its new organic capsules aims to capture sustainable-conscience consumers.
“We have definitely seen a consumer shift to organic products, and we have seen an increased demand both at a local and an international level for organic coffee,” St Remio co-founder Trent Knox said.
“St Remio outsold Lavazza A Modo Mio, Nescafe Dolce Gusto and Espressotoria in units in quarter one at Coles this year. It’s a big achievement for a young brand, further showing how we are resonating with the consumer.”
St Remio has been successful in 2021 across its full product range, with online sales reaching 104 per cent along the east coast of Australia over the past three months.
Born in Rwanda and raised in Melbourne, by purchasing St Remio capsules consumers help fund development projects and support coffee-growing communities in the African nation, via education and infrastructure. It empowers coffee growers with the business skills to sell their product for a fair price and earn more money for their families.
St Remio is continuing to support the female farmers of Cocagi in West Rwanda this year by purchasing four more hectares of land and 8,000 coffee and other seedlings, to diversify the farming community’s income. The brand also invests in training to improve farming techniques that combat climate change and work in cohesion with the environment.
“We are excited to see our St Remio Bio-Organic range on the shelves of Coles supermarkets around Australia,” St Remio co-founder Julia Tink said.
“Each time a customer purchases St Remio, it allows us to do more and be more for communities like Cocagi in Rwanda, and it’s rewarding for our customers to know that their choice is having a positive impact on the lives of others.
The company now has a unique opportunity to reach Expressi consumers and for them to be part of a positive movement.
“With our affordable range accessible in over 850 Coles stores, we believe St Remio offers consumers a credible alternative,” Tink said.
St Remio’s new Bio–Organic Expressi and Caffitaly compatible coffee pods are available in three blends, Aromatic (intensity 9), Espresso (intensity 12) and Robust (intensity 14), and retail at $3.75 for a pack of 10.
St Remio offers a wide range of top-quality, sustainably sourced beans and espresso pods that suit a variety of coffee machines.
“A great cup of coffee is one thing, but a great cup of coffee with real purpose is another. With St Remio, it’s your coffee, full circle,” Knox said.
