Caring for Communities

Driving quality while contributing to building resilient communities and environments.

Our Dedication to Continuous Improvement

Behind each cup of Nespresso coffee is a story of dedication to sustainable quality. The Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality Program was designed to ensure that our beans have been produced with the greatest care for both the environment and the coffee farming communities who produce them.

This also includes our Reviving Origins program, designed to revive coffee production in regions that have endured difficult times due to social unrest, conflict or natural disasters.
