The Nespresso Coffee Origins

How we make coffee

Coffee is harvested and processed in countries of origin, which means it is pulped, fermented, washed, dried, etc,… there. It is the seed of the coffee cherry (called “green bean”) that we transport to roasting facilities in Switzerland. Once here, it is blended and roasted to perfection. As a final step, it is ground and encapsulated. Let’s dig into each step.

Nespresso Coffee Origins and Types

Depending on blend composition and terroir, every Nespresso coffee has its own taste.


An array of Arabica coffees and Robusta coffees.


Coffee tastes different based on altitude, soil composition, plant variety, temperature, climate and many other factors.

In our AAA Sustainable Quality Program, we’re learning together with our farmers how to improve their farms. At the end of the day, it’s the farmers who best understand their coffee trees.
