After 20 years of dedicated research, Nespresso has launched N°20, a new and bespoke coffee.
With a dream to create the ultimate cup of coffee, Nespresso began identifying the finest Arabicas from its collection. After experimental plantings in Colombia, Nicaragua and Indonesia, N°20 was eventually found to thrive best in the soil of the Cauca and Caldas regions of Colombia. There, the coffee was grown by just 59 farmers who collectively planted and cared for one million coffee trees of this new and unique Arabica variety.
The result is a coffee that boasts an exquisite taste profile, featuring enticing orange blossom aromas and fresh citrus notes. N°20 is Q certified by the Coffee Quality Institute, an independent non-profit organisation that designates high standards of quality in the coffee industry.
In keeping with Nespresso’s commitment to making coffee a force for good, the 59 farmers are part of the brand’s AAA Program and were consequently paid a premium as a reward for their investment in sustainable high quality.
Guillaume Le Cunff, Nespresso CEO, said: “N°20 is the embodiment of Nespresso’s values: an obsession with perfection and a determination to innovate. Twenty years of dedication has resulted in an exquisite taste unlike anything that coffee lovers have tried before. I’m thrilled to be able to share this labour of love with people – its quality is a true testament to what decades of passion can produce!”
N°20 is a seasonal coffee, meaning you can enjoy its elegant and aromatic profile for a limited amount of time each year. Nespresso recommends you experience the subtle flavours of this blend as an espresso. It has been launched in the coffee cup-shaped Original capsules and will be available in the domeshaped Vertuo capsules next year. ✤
