Your perfect cup of Nespresso: precision in preparation
Nespresso has always been a leader in portioned coffee and the same is true of the environmental credentials of our machines. The benefit of a portioned coffee system is that it reduces waste by optimising the amount of coffee and water required to make the perfect coffee.
The LCA study conducted by Quantis found that depending on how our Club Members use their machine, a Nespresso coffee can have a lower impact than a conventionally made coffee. To find out more, read our interview with Yves Loerincik, CEO Quantis, here.
We have brought together a network of experts focused on designing ever more innovative, high-performing and greener machines for our Club Members. The network, which consists of a Nespresso R&D team, machine manufacturers, engineers and designers, aims to continually improving the energy consumption, carbon emissions and recyclability of each range of Nespresso machines. In the future, this network will also explore the use of recycled materials in our machines and even the development of a closed-loop system, in which all the materials used to produce the machines can be recycled into new products.
Since 2009, all new Nespresso machine ranges have all been equipped with an energy-saving mode, and from 2011, all our machines will have an automatic power-off function, as pioneered by today’s Pixie models. Pixie, our newest machine, automatically switches off after nine minutes of inactivity, consuming 40% less energy than previous models.
