RESPONSIBLE SOURCING

None of this would be possible without the 100,000 coffee growers who, day after day, take care of your coffee.

IT’S ALL ABOUT
THE KNOW-HOW

A CAREFUL SELECTION

So that we continue to provide you with the perfect coffee, we rely on the expertise of the producers and our agronomists – starting with the selection of the best coffee beans. Nespresso experts travel the world in search of the best regions, but it's the farmers who patiently watch over the coffee plants who really make the difference.

"With Nespresso, we've learned to focus on quality rather than quantity."

Humberto G. Sanchez, coffee grower, Colombia

CONSISTENT QUALITY

Once the beans are in Switzerland, Nespresso's experts compose the blends, bringing out the aromatic character of each origin and ensuring that the same aromatic profile is maintained, cup after cup. The roasting process reveals the unique taste of your coffee – for you to enjoy.

NESPRESSO AAA SUSTAINABLE QUALITY™ PROGRAM

SUSTAINABILITY – A LONG-TERM COMMITMENT

In 2003, Nespresso launched the Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program with the NGO Rainforest Alliance to offer exceptional coffee that can be traced back to the coffee farms, while also protecting the environment and improving the well-being of coffee farmers. The AAA Program is based on the criteria of the Sustainable Agriculture Network (SAN) – internationally recognised independent environmental and social principles – and on a long-standing direct relationship with coffee growers.

The AAA Program has a positive impact on coffee farmers and their communities, helping them to implement sustainable farming practices and guaranteeing them multiple benefits, including an above-market price, training and personalised support from more than 450 dedicated agronomists, as well as easy access to the Rainforest Alliance certification.


PERFECT TRACEABILITY

The AAA Program also benefits you the consumer, because the coffee is purchased directly from selected producers. So Nespresso knows your coffee, where it comes from and what it will taste like in your cup.

To ensure the sustainability of your coffee, Nespresso also works with many institutional partners and NGOs.

  • - By end of 2021, all of our home capsules will be made using 80% recycled aluminium, with the ambition to go even further.

WHERE CAN I RETURN MY USED CAPSULES FOR RECYCLING & WHY SHOULD I?

You can return used capsules with another order, handed over to the courier, only important to remember that recycling collections do need to be selected when placing your order.  If it is convenient, the capsules can also be returned by bringing them to the Nespresso boutiques in shopping malls in G9 or in Panorama, Vilnius. 


Responsibility means recyclability

Delivering premium coffee, cup after cup, comes with accountability. To you, naturally and also to the world we live in. This is why Nespresso is committed to doing business responsibly, looking for ways to make a difference wherever we can.
Nespresso has a highly responsible sustainability and capsule recycling policy and an advanced recycling system that offers a wide range of options to make it easy and convenient for customers to recycle used capsules.
