REVIVING ORIGINS

Reviving lost lands in the Democratic Republic of Congo

The fertile volcanic soils along Lake Kivu shores in Eastern Congo are ideal Arabica terroir and after years of conflict and political instability left estates abandoned, we’re working closely with farmers to revitalise the sector. For the second edition of KAHAWA ya CONGO, we’ve collaborated with OpenSC to digitally trace every bag of coffee from the 1,185 smallholder farms of the AMKA Cooperative in South Kivu.

KAHAWA YA CONGO: EARTH'S AWAKENING

The rain-rich volcanic soils along the Kivu lakeshores of Eastern Congo are ideal Arabica terroir. Years of continued conflict and political instability leave many plantations abandoned and smallholder farmers tapping only a small fraction of Congo's potential for specialty coffee.

NESPRESSO's REVIVING ORIGINS program joins together with the South Kivu farmers and partners to support coffee communities in raising Congo coffee to its full stature. REVIVING ORIGINS Congo is still a scarce treasure to behold. But each year, we’ll bring you more of this smooth organic coffee with its mild fruity note and alluring sweet cereal and nutty aromas.

Care is what goes into every cup of Nespresso coffee.

Because care is relentless effort, today we come together as coffee artists and coffee lovers to launch a movement devoted to coffee as a catalyst for positive change – and to show that when care comes first, everything is possible.

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

What is the transparency solution on KAHAWA ya CONGO?

With the second edition of KAHAWA ya CONGO, launching in January 2022, Nespresso is offering consumers the chance to follow their coffee's journey back to the farm and to verify that farmers received the AAA premium. Every step the coffee takes from farms to the consumer is tracked digitally and securely, providing full transparency.

Each sleeve of coffee from the AMKA Cooperative involved in the program will carry a QR code, allowing consumers to trace the steps the coffee has taken from the farmers in DRC.

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.
