Extraction (from the Latin extraho = I extract) is a method for separating one ingredient from a mixture (e.g. from raw materials or liquids) using a solvent. We all use this method when brewing tea, where water is the solvent.
A mix of roasted cereals and chicory, prepared in accordance with a given recipe, is transferred to extractors, where it undergoes the multi-stage process of hot water leaching. During extraction, the liquid extract gradually becomes richer and cools down The method we use for extraction of our raw materials is called counter-current extraction.
The final extract – which has a specific density, flavour, and other technological parameters – is stored in metal containers with a total capacity of over half a million litres.
Extraction at our company is a completely natural process, supervised by qualified and experienced staff, and supported by an electronic control system.
