Coffee lovers around the world are set to experience coffee craftsmanship from far-flung corners of the globe with the latest additions to the Nespresso Master Origins range. Complementing the existing blends in Nespresso’s Master Origins range, four new single-origin blends have launched today including a limited edition coffee on the Original system – Master Origin Aged Sumatra.
The blend will also be available as a limited-edition coffee, along with new permanent single-origin blends from Ethiopia, and Costa Rica.
Inspired by the skills of some of the finest artisans, the Master Origins range gives coffee enthusiasts the chance to experience legendary tastes that would otherwise elude consumers.
Harnessing the local skills and knowledge from local coffee farmers in these regions, Nespresso Master Origins coffees are produced with meticulous care to deliver coffee excellence in each cup of Nespresso coffee. The distinctive aromatics of these coffees are not only linked to the countries of origin, but also to the specific ways of processing coffee by local farming communities. Each coffee sourced has allowed for Nespresso to work in partnership with local coffee farmers to produce these distinctive coffees to enjoy in the comfort of your own home.
Limited Edition Master Origin Aged Sumatra Wet-Hulled Aged Arabica – available for both Original and Vertuo systems.
As one of the first places in the world known for growing coffee on a large scale, Sumatra in Indonesia is renowned for the quality coffee beans it produces that offer a unique combination of body, depth and flavour.
High up around Gayo Mountain, in the Aceh province of the island of Sumatra, groups of skilful coffee farmers devote their expertise to the unusual process of giling basah. This process consists of removing the coffee cherry flesh and parchment while the beans inside are still wet, letting it breathe and dry more easily. Over the next three years, the stored beans are left to moisten and dry with nature’s rhythms. These craftspeople take great care to continuously re-bag the coffee beans to ensure even ageing. The coupling of Indonesia’s giling basah method with the meticulous ageing over several years develops a distinctive coffee profile.
Coffee lovers can expect a spicy, woody profile with a velvety feel. Complex notes of cocoa and sweet caramel are also present throughout.
Master Origin Costa Rica with Washed Arabica Soaked in Hot Spring Waters is available for Vertuo systems.
In the depths of Costa Rica, coffee farmers come together in a central mill to soak their coffee beans in hot spring waters. The pulped coffee beans then rest into a fermentation tank where the water cools and thoroughly washes the beans, creating a balanced and clean taste.
Coffee connoisseurs can expect a malty sweet cereal character of this craftsmen’s coffee.
Master Origin Ethiopia with Dry Processed Arabica is now available for Vertuo systems.
Coffee farmers in Western Ethiopia excel in using the ‘dry method’ of coffee processing. Coffee cherries are carefully picked and spread on top of suspended beds under the intense tropical sun. The cherries are then hand-turned continually for up to four weeks to ensure the produce is dried evenly, creating a rich, unique taste that can only be found in this region. This method has been used by Ethiopian farmers longer than anyone else.
Coffee lovers can expect to sip on heady florals with a gentle hint of musk. The Nespresso Master Origins range is available online and at Nespresso boutiques from September 3, 2020, at https://ae.buynespresso.com
