To Nespresso taste, sustainability and quality always go hand in hand. We believe that the best coffee is produced when passion, knowledge and respect for nature and people blend together. Each of our coffee varieties has not only its own exquisite taste and aroma, but also its own origin and story.
We are proud of our close collaboration with coffee farmers in the best coffee countries of the world. We are also immensely proud of our AAA Sustainability Quality Program™.
The Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program works together with farmers to identify the most efficient and natural way of working with the land and addressing both environmental and social aspects. The variables change across different countries, so the program is adapted accordingly.
As an example, agroforestry is today a critical area in many geographical regions. Since 2014 we planted more than 5.2 million trees in countries including Guatemala, Brazil, Colombia, Ethiopia, Kenya and Indonesia.
In addition to participating in the Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program many farmers strive to reach the Rainforest Alliance certification.
The combination of AAA- program and Rainforest Alliance certification benefits the farmers by investing in community infrastructures, paying premiums for superior coffee, and encouraging best agricultural practices. It also provides farmer training, financing, and technical assistance to continuously improve quality, sustainability, and productivity.
Have you tried Nespresso´s Single Origins yet? Origins are a range of single origin coffees brought from local coffee producers in different parts of the world; India, Peru, Guatemala, Brazil and Congo.
They capture the soul of the region, the craftsmanship of the farmers and Nespresso´s philosophy around sustainability. The distinctive and unique aromas of these coffees are linked to the countries of origin, as well as to the specific ways of cultivating, harvesting and processing coffee, carefully done by local farming communities. All of Nespresso´s Single Origins are sourced in a sustainable way from The AAA program.
In each cup you get a sublime reminiscence of the specific terroir where the beans were grown and the close care they got from the farmers.
Nespresso’s first Reviving Origin in the Nespresso Professional family. Reviving Origins is a long-term program to bring back great coffees from origins that are affected by social or environmental issues.
Peru is a wonderful, versatile and floral coffee, with a fruity aroma, that grows high up into the slopes of the Andes, in the region of Huabal in North-East Peru. Perfect to enjoy both as an Espresso and as a Lungo.
Peru Organic and Congo Organic are certified organic, meaning that it is produced by methods complying with the standards of organic farming. While standards vary worldwide, organic farming broadly features practices that cycle resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity.
