The Positive Cup
WE BELIEVE THAT EACH CUP OF NESPRESSO COFFEE SHOULD DELIVER AN EXTRAORDINARY EXPERIENCE FOR ANYONE INVOLVED
CAN NESPRESSO BE THE SUSTAINABLE CHOICE?
Independent experts have carried out a Life Cycle Assessment to investigate the environmental impact of portioned coffee in relation to other brewing methods. Surprisingly, the study shows that portioned coffee can have an equally small or even smaller environmental impact. This is because precision brewing systems such as Nespresso ensure that the exact amount of coffee, water and energy is used to brew a single cup. Other brewing methods can often lead to an overdose of coffee, brewing more than necessary or unnecessarily prolonged heating of the coffee pot.
