Coffee Products

Spray Dried Coffee

A “powdered” form of soluble coffee, spray dried coffee is created in three manufacturing stages: extraction, concentration, and drying.

  • Spray Dried Decaffeinated
  • Spray Dried Aromatized

Freeze Dried Coffee

Freeze dried coffee is a high-quality crystallized form of soluble coffee created through cold processing. As with the spray dried and agglomerated varieties, freeze dried coffee requires three main manufacturing stages: extraction, concentration, and drying.

LMZ Freeze Dried Products

  • Freeze Dried Regular
  • Freeze Dried Dark Roast
  • Freeze Dried Decaffeinated
  • Freeze Concentrated

Agglomerated Coffee

Agglomerated coffee is essentially a dried powder that readily dissolves in water. To bind the spray dried particles into an agglomerated cluster, a steam belt or steam curtain process is employed.

The resulting agglomerated coffee provides ready solubility and attractive appearance.

Extracts and Oils — Hot and Cold Brew

The popularity of coffee extracts, concentrates, and oils has soared over the last decade. These liquid coffees have proven indispensable in the creation of many coffee-based beverages, as well as the enhancement of flavor and aroma in a variety of foods and beverages.

Once concentrated to the desired brix level (percentage of solids), liquid extracts are available in refrigerated and shelf-stable versions.

For the creation of coffee oil, coffee beans are hydraulically squeezed until they produce an aromatic, flavorful and highly concentrated coffee oil.
