THE UNIQUENESS OF NESPRESSO: Inside each Nespresso capsule you'll find the finest coffees in the world
Although it was not until 1986 that the first Nespresso machine was sold, research to make perfect espresso at home began in 1975.
Researchers at the Nestlé Product Technology Centre in Orbe, Switzerland, developed a new concept of coffee capsules combined with an extraction system that allowed the right combination of air, water and fresh roast and ground coffee to create the classic espresso, complete with the light crema that sits on top. The first capsules had thick, aluminium walls with a built-in coffee filter. To develop an efficient seal that could support the high water pressure needed for a top quality espresso took R&D three years to develop.
Today’s capsules have thin aluminium walls and the filter is built into the machine, meaning less waste. Take a look at Nespresso today
