Our Farmers

We respect farmers by helping them to plant and grow healthier, disease-resistant coffee trees, which produce higher yields and better quality coffee beans.

Bringing coffee to China

Coffee in China

Our pioneering agronomist, Jan De Smet convinced us that coffee could grow in the land of tea. With his know-how and a group of innovative Chinese farmers, we made it happen. Now 15,000 farming families are producing delicious Arabica coffee in the Yunnan province.

  • of Vietnamese farmers are keeping records, improving the management of their farms

  • plantlets have been distributed in Mexico, increasing productivity by 81%

Coffee super trees

Jose, Fernando and Andrea, from our NESCAFÉ R&D Farm in Ecuador, have spent decades developing our coffee super-trees. They naturally resists disease, are less thirsty, and produces super juicy coffee beans too. Nice work amigos!

  • farmers across Central America received over 13.5 million leaf rust tolerant plantlets

  • of coffee farming land is renovated in Brazil with the distribution of 21 million plantlets

  • yield improvement for farmers fully adopting the Good Agricultural Practices in Kenya

More trees
Same space, more trees

More trees

NESCAFÉ produces plantlets that enhance tree density, so that less land space is used. With more trees being able to grow on the same area of land, coffee farmers in Indonesia are able to get 30% better yield and also reduce costs. Win, win.

  • Productivity in Thailand is tripled by adopting grafting practices which reduce costs

  • increased productivity in Ivory Coast, helping farmers improve their living conditions

  • kilograms of coffee per hectare in China — the highest Arabica yields in the world
