Nespresso launches Reviving Origins range to help restore coffee production in regions where it is under threat

The Reviving Origins program is Nespresso’s long-term approach to revitalizing coffee agriculture and coffee economies through supporting sustainable production in regions impacted by adversities such as conflict, economic hardship, and environmental disasters. Since its launch in 2019, the Reviving Origins program has made some of the world’s finest and most exclusive coffees from areas of Zimbabwe, Uganda, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, available as seasonal blends to Nespresso coffee drinkers.

An exquisite taste experience

From one of the world’s most fragile farming regions, the KAHAWA ya CONGO coffee (“Hope of Congo”) is a smooth and fruity seasonal blend, grown on the rain-rich volcanic soils of Lake Kivu in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) where the once-thriving coffee farming community has been devastated by decades of political and economic instability.

The rain-rich volcanic soils along the Kivu lakeshores of Eastern Congo are ideal for growing specialty Arabicas. The KAHAWA ya CONGO coffee is split roast, meaning that a small portion of the beans gets a darker roast to bring out the full intensity and body of the coffee. In cup, the smooth and balanced Arabica reveals alluring sweet cereal and nutty aromas, reflecting its ideal terroir origin. With milk, meanwhile, these aromas are transformed into a light, sweet and creamy cup full of biscuity notes, a hint of walnut, and a silky texture.

Flourishing variety

Alongside KAHAWA ya CONGO, Nespresso is introducing three other seasonal Reviving Origins coffees for 2021, helping bring long-term economic stability to farmers, as well as showcasing their craftsmanship to the world: AMAHA awe UGANDA, a single origin coffee with medium acidity and body, grown in the Rwenzori Mountains of Uganda; TAMUKA mu ZIMBABWE, a flowery espresso from the famous Honde Valley in the Zimbabwean Eastern highlands; and ESPERANZA de COLOMBIA, a rich and balanced Arabica espresso, with fruity notes and fine acidity, from the Colombian regions of El Rosario and Caquetá.

The first Cuban blend

Arriving in local stores towards the end of September 2021 is CAFECITO de CUBA, the first Cuban blend under the Reviving Origins program. Produced from 100% pure Cuban Arabica, it is an intense roasted coffee that echoes the passionate rhythms of authentic Cuban culture and boasts powerful and delightfully smoky notes of wood and tobacco leaves. The coffee is sourced from the Eastern part of the island, where coffee production has declined in recent decades due to economic and political instability. With its fertile soil and ideal climate conditions, Cuba offers an excellent coffee growing environment. 

The Reviving Origins coffee range will be available for a limited time only in Nespresso’s boutiques, pop-up stores, and online at www.nespresso.ph.
