Product Information

  • What is the shelf life of the Nespresso capsules?

    Our capsules are hermetically sealed for optimal conservation of coffee aromas. Two dates are indicated on each sleeve: the production date and the date of consumption. We ensure the freshness consumption up to 12 months after the date of production. The best before date is however not the expiration date as the coffee is not a perishable product. This date is recommended for obtaining the best results in a cup.

  • How can I order professional capsules?

    To order professional capsules please click here or contact Nespresso Club on toll free number.

  • Why are the Limited Editions no longer available?

    We are pleased to know that you have been seduced by our Limited Editions. These exclusive flavours are, however, now sold-out. Again and again we come across unique coffee flavours in our search for perfection and unique taste experiences. We can only offer these creations for limited period as the raw materials are only available in small quantities. We thank you for your kind understanding.

    You can already looking forward to further Limited Editions. These will be launched respectively in spring and autumn. We will create Variations this year as well – you will be well surprised.

  • Why do you call your coffee varieties "Grand Crus"?

    Like in the wine industry, a “Grand Cru” stands out from a “mainstream” coffee by its uncompromising perfection pushed to the extreme at every stage of its development: selection of exclusive green coffee varieties, ideal soil, controlled growing conditions and thorough post harvest treatments, best in class farming practices, hand-picking and drastic sorting, discriminatory tasting and severe quality controls.

    From this exclusive raw material, like in the wine industry, our experts create “Grand Crus” blends of various varieties and origins (like the “Bordeaux” wines) or select and sublimate a single origin deeply rooted to its soil (like the “Burgundy” wines). Just like the winemaker with precious grapes, our master blender and roaster then put all their expertise and knowledge in the design of creative blending and specific roasting profiles, to finally offer unique coffees of the highest possible quality.

  • What does “Pure Origin” or “Single Origin” coffee mean?

    A pure origin or single origin coffee is made of coffees coming from the same country of origin. At Nespresso, each “pure origin” is exclusively and genuinely composed (100%) of coffees coming from a single country of origin and even limited regions that offer unique profiles. We perform rigorous sampling and testing to ensure that we have only 100% pure origins.

  • What is so special about the highest quality coffee that Nespresso uses?

    Nespresso coffee experts look for only the finest beans with a particular taste and specific aromatic characteristics, to create the Nespresso Grand Cru blends. Each coffee is evaluated through tasting to ensure that the coffee meets the Nespresso quality standards and matches the exact aroma profiles.

    Nespresso is committed to offering its consumers only the finest gourmet coffees. Only the top 1% to 2% of the world’s green coffee crop meets Nespresso specific taste and aroma profiles. Throughout the year, Nespresso green coffee experts and their green coffee supply partners ensure these highest quality standards by actively seeking out such coffees cultivated in farming communities in the world premium coffee-producing areas. These are often remote regions, where a combination of altitude, climate and rich soil produce the distinctive flavors, aromas and complex character that make up Nespresso Grand Crus.

  • Are Nespresso capsules just filled with pure coffee?

    The 24 Nespresso Grand Cru capsules contain only pure coffee, sourced from the finest 1-2% of the world’s coffee production. That’s why no additives of any kind are used or needed. The quality and consistency of our coffee in the cup and its exquisite crema are the result of the highest quality coffee, the way we manage the quality during the whole production process and the unique Nespresso system – the interaction of the original Nespresso aluminum capsule and the genuine Nespresso machine.

  • Where are the coffees used in the capsules sourced from?

    The coffees used by Nespresso are sourced primarily from nine countries: Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Mexico, Nicaragua, Kenya, Ethiopia and India.

  • Where are the coffee capsules produced?

    All the coffee capsules are produced in Switzerland, in the Nespresso Production Centres of Orbe and Avenches. The coffee capsules are then shipped worldwide from the Avenches site.
