Discover 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 skillful coffee farmers devote their expertise to the unusual process of giling basah. This process consists in removing the coffee cherry flesh and parchment while the beans inside are still wet, letting it breathe and dry more easily. Over the next 3 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 aging 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.
Discover Master Origin Costa Rica with Washed Arabica Soaked in Hot Spring Waters 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.
Discover Master Origin Ethiopia with Dry Processed Arabica
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 famers longer than anyone else.
Coffee lovers can expect to sip on heady florals with a gentle hint of musk.
Discover the Limited Edition Master Origins accessories
To celebrate the launch of Master Origin Aged Sumatra, a set of two Limited Edition Reveal Espresso Intense glasses will be available in special gift boxes. Developed in collaboration with the master glassmakers at Riedel, the carefully proportioned tasting glass allows the coffee to express its woody and spicy character.
Additionally, Nespresso launches Limited Edition Origin Collection cups with a new glossy pink-colored interior matching the Master Origin Colombia capsule. The Limited Edition range will be available in the espresso and lungo formats and will arrive in craft packaging as a testament to its authenticity, sustainability and craftsmanship.
Have a final moment of sweet indulgence, why not try Nespresso’s Limited Edition Ruby Cocoa Chocolate. Created in collaboration with Barry Callebaut, this Ruby Cocoa chocolate is offering a delicious “raw” Ruby Cocoa experience, with a fresh berry fruitiness and luscious smoothness to taste.
For those with a soft spot for all things caramel, Nespresso is also pleased to extend its permanent chocolate range to include bestseller Milk Chocolate with Salted Caramel Pieces that was initially launched as a Limited Edition range in 2014.
