We respect our planet because we need to protect the landscapes that produce our delicious coffee today, for it to continue doing so tomorrow. We develop new farming techniques to protect and conserve natural resources.
Tin can man of Vietnam
Meet Pham, he’s a coffee expert working for NESCAFÉ in Vietnam who keeps coming up with clever ideas to help farmers use scarce resources sustainably. Pham helped 20,000 Vietnamese farmers measure rainfall and ground moisture with tin cans and plastic bottles. So now, farmers only irrigate crops when they have to. Go Pham!

Helping farmers to reduce water waste to produce higher coffee yields
Widespread irrigation enables higher coffee yields. But that’s a lot of water. NESCAFÉ is training thousands of farmers in Vietnam, to reduce water use by 40%, while maintaining quality and productivity. With more efficient irrigation, there’s more water for everyone else.
