    Copella is made at Boxford Farm, Suffolk, from handpicked apples.

    Our suppliers' apple pickers select and choose each apple carefully by hand. The apples are delicately selected for their size, shape, colour and maturity. Apples picked at the optimum time ensure that Copella is made from the


    tastiest and sweetest apples. Oursuppliers' experts know each delicious apple variety by heart and only allow a perfect picking for each blend.


    Handpicked at the peak of their ripeness!

    Storing

    Once the apples have been picked, they are placed gently in crates by variety and date and held in chilled storage until they are pressed.

    In general, later harvest apples store better than early harvest apples, so apples picked October - early November will store well

    and sustain the supply of Copella through the following seasons.
    We select apples by variety to create the blend of apple varieties in our press that makes Copella taste so great.

    Pressing

    Before pressing, the apples are thoroughly washed.

    The quality control team carefully grades the fruit to ensure only the best apples are used.
    Any bruised or damaged fruit are removed.
    The apples are then gently pressed to create
    the famous delicious apple

    juice Copella is known for. The juice is then taste tested by our expert apple juice taster to guarantee excellence of flavour, then quickly bottled.


    Only the best apples are pressed!
