Nespresso is quality coffee for uncompromising coffee lovers. It is the taste of the finest coffee grown in the best terroirs. At the same time, Nespresso is the ambition of greater sustainability. Our goal is a coffee economy, where challenges are turned into sustainable solutions. This is why we want to make it possible to give every single Nespresso capsule a new life. Nespresso coffees are sealed in aluminum capsules; because aluminum is the best material to protect the 900 aromas in the coffee from light, air and other taste enemies. Aluminum can be recycled endlessly without losing its quality. It is our mission to provide you with the perfect cup of coffee every time. Recycling is only one of many sustainability initiatives.

Aluminium fremstilles af bauxit, et stof der forekommer naturligt i jordbunden. Når aluminium genanvendes, sparer man cirka 95% af den energi, der kræves til produktion af primær aluminium.
