Nespresso brings two of the world’s rarest coffees to NZ

- 5 August 2021 - 


Nespresso has introduced two new rare coffees to its Reviving Origins range, the organic KAHAWA ya CONGO and CAFECITO de CUBA.

The two coffees join the permanent Reviving Origins range that was introduced to New Zealanders in 2020, featuring AMAHA awe UGANDA, TAMUKA mu ZIMBABWE and ESPERANZA de COLOMBIA.

These are no ordinary coffees; they are made possible by Nespresso’s Reviving Origins program, which revives coffee agriculture and local coffee economies in regions affected by adversities such as conflict, economic hardship and environmental disasters. As these coffees reach the brink of extinction, Nespresso’s Reviving Origins program revitalises the regions through long-term investments and day-to-day work with farmers.

This program brings the five coffees permanently to New Zealand, giving New Zealanders the chance to enjoy exceptional, premium and incredibly rare coffees that have given the global farming communities benefits such as an additional source of income, improved infrastructures, and ongoing training.

Nespresso New Zealand Country Manager Stefan Vermeulen says, “New Zealand is a coffee-loving nation, and once again we join Kiwis in believing the ethicality and sustainability behind a product’s creation is equally as important as the taste. We are proud to extend our Reviving Origins program to support the regions of Congo and Cuba, breathing new life into more local economies around the globe, and more importantly, communities in these regions.”

“Through the Reviving Origins program, Nespresso provides support to struggling coffee farming areas and helps breathe new life into local economies. When coffee has been created with care and purpose, it’s a difference you can taste. The Reviving Origins range gives Kiwis the opportunity to enjoy the world’s rarest coffees while sustaining coffee growing communities.”

The five coffees are available to purchase from now at Nespresso Boutiques, online at
