Nespresso, the worldwide pioneer in premium coffee, elevates the coffee-drinking experience even further, enticing your five senses with five new global coffee sensations in its newest Master Origin Collection.

Sourced from around the globe, the Master Origin range uses the purest beans and the finest coffee crafts from known coffee capitals such as Ethiopia, Indonesia, Colombia, Nicaragua, and Indonesia.

Each of the Master Origin coffees boasts a unique journey of discovery-  from the forested mountains of Sumatra through to the highland vales of Nicaragua. Within each selected region, Nespresso experts formed a partnership with the local farming community and embarked on a mission to test innovative and demanding farming practices, all with the goal of crafting incredible new coffee aromas and tastes.

In Ethiopia, coffee beans carry such a light and bright flavour thanks to its unique gathering and roasting technique. The beans are meticulous raked every hour by hand to ensure even drying. In Colombia, the typical harvest time of coffee is pushed to the limit – with each coffee cherry left to ripen on the tree until it turns the right shade of deep purple. Over in Sumatra, Indonesia, farmers use a traditional local wet-hulling method, while in Nicaragua, the ‘black honey’ method is used, which involves leaving the coffee bean to dry in its natural fruit layer, allowing it to soak up the natural sugars. The coffee sourced in India, on the hand, is “monsooned,” which is an age-old technique wherein the beans swell up with moisture, revealing a unique new flavour. 

“Processing techniques play a hugely important role in the final coffee profile.  With the Master Origin coffees, we used a mix of traditional, new and adapted methods to produce five distinct and original coffees. We want our consumers to discover a new world of greater depth and flavour.” says Patrick Pesengco, Managing Director, Novateur Coffee Concepts Inc.

Here’s how you can bring out and enjoy the different flavour profiles of each origin bean.
