The AAA Program

The unique taste of these two Grands Crus comes from the joint effort between Nespresso and exceptional coffee farmers.

NESPRESSO AAA logo A 11 YEAR PARTNERSHIP

The Nespresso AAA Sustainable quality™ Program was launched in 2003 in collaboration with the Rainforest Alliance to help protect the future of the highest quality coffees required by Nespresso for consumers and secure the livelihoods of the farmers that grow them.

At the end of 2013, Nespresso was already sourcing 84% of its coffee from approximately 62,000 AAA farmers.

AAA in Colombia colombian

Since 2006, Nespresso has supported more than 35,000 colombian coffee farmers to improve the sustainability of quality coffee production, providing training and technical assistance with the help of the Federación Nacional de Cafeteros and other partners.

Growing coffee can be a challenging business for smallholder coffee farmers. That's why Nespresso has invested in several projects to bring more small-scale farmers in Colombia into the Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality Program
