REVIVING ORIGINS

COURAGE TO REESTABLISH UGANDA`S HERITAGE

For centuries, the altitude and fertile soils of Uganda’s Rwenzori mountains offered exceptional coffee potential. But the coffee quality failed to fulfil the promise of its terroir - farmland wasn’t looked after and traditions were fading.

NESPRESSO's REVIVING ORIGINS program started in Rwenzori mountains in 2018. Training sessions were run with local farmers on agriculture practices to increase their coffee quality and yield, and lead to improved livelihoods. We proudly introduce finest quality REVIVING ORIGINS Uganda with wild fruity character that carries both hard-to-find sandalwood notes and elegant florals.

Available for Vertuo and Original.

CAFÉ DE CUBA: RESTORING AN OLD GLORY

During the 19th and early 20th centuries, Cuba was one of the world’s leading coffee producers. The island’s mild tropical climate and fertile soils are ideal Arabica terroir for small family farms. Its golden age lasted until the revolution when production rapidly declined, but over the past 60 years Cuba’s vibrant coffee culture never faded.

NESPRESSO's REVIVING ORIGINS program trains Cuban Farmers on the sustainable production of high-quality coffee to allow them to pave solid paths into the future. Since 2016 we have worked at creating long term partnerships with the farmers, and our REVIVING ORIGINS Cuba echoes with the passionate rhythms of authentic Cuban culture. A dark roasted, intense character boasts delightful smoky notes of wood and tobacco leaves.

Available for Vertuo and Original.

REVIVING LANDS IN THE ISLAND OF PUERTO RICO

In the 18th century, Puerto Rican coffee was sold around Europe, and even served in royal courts, but throughout its history, coffee production has been heavily impacted by hurricanes. San Felipe in 1928 devastated most of the crops, and Hurricane Maria in 2017 left the Puerto Rican coffee sector flattened.

NESPRESSO's REVIVING ORIGINS program joins farmers to replant their land and reclaim their future. With our partners, we aim to train the farmers to restore the crop of the “coffee of royalty”. REVIVING ORIGINS Cafecito de Puerto Rico is an intense and creamy double espresso with dark cocoa notes, pepper and brown spice.

Available for Vertuo only.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is the "Made with Care" Platform about?

Care has been part of Nespresso's DNA since the very beginning - embedded throughout our value chain and making the difference to every farmer and community we work with, as well as to every cup of Nespresso coffee.

Care is fundamental to our business, but it's not something you can see. Given how deeply customers care about people and the planet, our “Made with Care” campaign is designed to illustrate how their favorite coffees come into being and the care instilled in every drop.

Now more than ever, recent social movements and the global pandemic have highlighted the need to protect the most vulnerable and preserve the planet's precious resources. Nespresso is committed to being part of the solution and it is the brand's fundamental belief that crafting quality coffee can be both an art and a catalyst for positive change, if care is instilled in every detail. Deep human care is therefore invested in every step of the value chain at Nespresso. Through our new brand communications platform, “Made with Care” we aim to bring this belief to life.

Which coffee ranges belong to "Made with Care"

"Made with Care" will feature three of Nespresso's prestigious coffee ranges, which have been inspired by the coffee farmers we work with and the rare coffees they produce:

Master Origins – coffees showcasing the craftmanship of local farmers who use traditional harvesting methods to achieve highly distinctive taste profiles.

Reviving Origins – a program which revives endangered coffees and farming communities in regions blighted by conflicts, economic hardship or environmental disaster.

Special Reserve - a limited collection of precious coffees sourced from the most exclusive and unexpected of places with unique profiles

How does the partnership between Nespresso and OpenSC work?

OpenSC created an innovative new platform. We are working with them as a third-party to fulfil our sustainability goals – to capture, verify, and store data from regions where we source coffee for Nespresso, and invite consumers to trace its origins.

Are you communicating how much farmers are paid?

No, OpenSC is not sharing the amount farmers were paid, because we consider that to be sensitive personal information that needs to be protected. Rather, OpenSC verifies that the farmers were paid the AAA premium. We also only share the farmers’ first names and the result of the automated payment verification.

The platform, created by OpenSC, uses technology that also automatically verifies that every farmer receives the right premium payment for the high-quality, organic coffee they produce, directly via mobile money or cash.

This greater level of transparency also delivers operational efficiencies to local supply chain participants. It improves the robustness and reliability of manual, paper-based documentation.
