Pressing & Tasting

  • Picking


    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.

    Storing process creates consistent quality
  • 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!
  • Tasting


    The juice, once pressed, is taste tested by our resident Apple Expert David Smyth here at Boxford Farm

    His palate is finely tuned to the delicacies of our apple varieties, to guarantee that all our juice is of exceptional quality before

    being quickly bottled to lock in that taste of just biting into an apple.

  • Bottling


    We gently pasteurise our juice
    before bottling.

    Each Copella bottle is made on Boxford Farm
    and filled with freshly pressed delicious apple juice. The bottles are then marked with
    our famous green and gold

    labels and shipped off to the shops.
