Growing: The coffee plants begin their journey in a nursery where they are cared for until the are ready to be planted into the coffee farms, where they will grow coffee cherries over many years.
Harvesting: Once coffee cherries are ripe, they are harvested by experienced farmers, and processed to develop the sensory characteristics of the coffee beans coming from them.
Roasting: The coffee beans with the required sensory profile are then roasted to develop the NESCAFÉ flavour, intensity and aroma.
Grinding: The perfectly roasted coffee beans are then ground into a coarse powder.
Extraction: The coarse coffee powder is then put through an extraction process to extract the flavour, aroma and colour from the coffee.
Drying: This step removes as much water as possible from the brew, in order for it to develop into a fine powder.
Filling: Once all the steps to prepare the coffee for packaging are done, the coffee powder is filled into our jars.
Is NESCAFÉ made from coffee only?
The short answer? YES! NESCAFÉ uses only approved quality Arabica and Robusta beans to create our signature bold flavours, and easily dissolved coffee granules. Take a journey with us from the moment the coffee beans are grown, to the moment you take them home, and see for yourself - 100% coffee, from the coffee plant to your coffee cup.
What is pure soluble coffee made of?
Turning fresh, green coffee beans into NESCAFÉ pure soluble coffee granules is a long, but rewarding process. From start to finish, the only ingredient we use is 100% pure coffee, adding nothing else but water. Yes, that's correct - NESCAFÉ is made from coffee only. We carefully select and blend two main types of coffee bean - Arabica beans, and Robusta beans. Arabica beans - grown in Latin America, East Africa and Asia - are longer, and make a sweeter, more delicate cup of coffee. Robusta beans, which come from the Canephora coffee tree, are shorter and round, and provide a stronger, heavier, more bitter-tasting coffee. Robusta beans are grown in more humid places - mainly South East Asia and West Africa. We also use a close relative of the Canephora plant - called Conillon - grown in Brazilian coffee farms.
