FLAVIA is a hot beverage system that prepares single servings of coffee, tea, and hot chocolate drinks. The brand is owned by Mars Drinks, a division of Mars, Incorporated, and competes with Keurig's K-Cup system. FLAVIA launched its first brewer in 1984.
FLAVIA claims its patented technology brews drinks in a single serve "Fresh Pack" which means that the pack is the actual brewing chamber. Then the drink pours directly from the packet into the cup rather than through a common channel so that each drink is not tainted by the previously brewed drink. Used packs are collected in a tray that is then emptied periodically when prompted.
The Fresh Packs are foil-sealed, thus protecting the ground coffees and teas from oxygen and moisture. FLAVIA markets several different machines, such as large coin-operated machines and small portable machines designed for home use.
