High-quality coffee from certified farms

The Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality program stands out for its unique approach to ensuring the extremely high quality of the green coffee beans required to create Nespresso coffee, while preserving the environment and improving the quality of life of coffee growers.

Recyclable and durable packaging

When Nespresso introduced its first capsules in the 1980s, it tested many materials to be used for the packaging. Aluminium came out on top, as the only material capable of preserving the full flavour of the coffee while protecting it from light, oxygen and humidity. Nespresso capsules do not need any kind of wrapping to protect the taste and aroma of the coffee.

Local production

Three roasting centres with 2,300 employees are part of the reason why Switzerland is now a country that exports more coffee than cheese and chocolate. Roasting, blending and packaging: all Nespresso capsules are exclusively produced in Switzerland.
