Reviving lost coffee origins one cup at a time

Through our REVIVING ORIGINS program, we work hand-in-hand with local farmers to ensure every cup of coffee is produced with care.

With the support of coffee-loving businesses just like yours, we’re restoring coffee production in regions that have been almost lost due to conflict, natural disasters or climate change.

Through the REVIVING ORIGINS program, Nespresso joins together with farmers and partners to bring back coffee production in regions under threat through sustainable farming practices that improve quality, increase the volume of crop year after year, and revive farmers’ livelihoods. Our goal is to bring back forgotten coffee industries, support the futures of the farmers who craft the coffee, and to bring your teams and guests an exceptional range of coffee blends.

For local farmer Turanyi Kabasura, life has changed since learning the new techniques for managing his coffee plants and securing a price premium for his coffee. “In my whole life, no one has ever given me such a bonus,” he says. Like many community members positively impacted by these endeavours, Kabasura has been able to reinvest his earnings into new income sources. “I see my remaining days being better than those in the past, because I am going to work, assured of receiving regular pay and a bonus each time after the coffee sale,” he explains. Your team and guests can now enjoy the great taste of barista-quality coffee, knowing they’re making a real difference for farmers just like Kabasura.

But care doesn’t just stop at the coffee. Care is a commitment to boosting the wellbeing and safety of the local community. It’s helping to re-build a once vibrant and flourishing culture, reviving it with a newfound sense of pride. It’s building community resilience through greater access to clean water and primary healthcare. It’s increasing training through our AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program and encouraging equal opportunities for women.

The work that we do with our partners not only aims to restore the coffee economy and also supports local communities to gain access to clean water and healthcare in a region that’s faced great adversity.

By instilling care in everything we do, every sip of our seasonal REVIVING ORIGINS program coffee blends harvests hope for local coffee communities. So your team or guests can feel proud knowing that their coffee is creating a lasting impact.
