Nescafé is arguably one of the most recognizable soluble powdered coffee brands in the world and was founded as the result of preserving surplus coffee beans in Brazil in the late 1920s.
Its parent company, Nestlé, took to the task, and under their coffee specialist, Max Morgenthaler, they were able to create an instant cup of coffee that was not only simple to make but kept the coffee’s natural flavor.
Nine years in the making and Nescafé was born as an ‘instant’ success.
Nescafé was launched on the 1st of April 1938 in Switzerland, served as a staple amongst soldiers from all over in the Second World War, joined Norgay and Hillary as the first to conquer Everest, and even landed on the moon with Armstrong and co.
And while the brand has never really veered much from its instant offerings, they do have a wide array of different offerings in Classic, Gold, Mixes, Ready-to-Drink, as well as its special, barista-like product called Azera.
To this day, Nescafé continues to be a firm favorite amongst millions of people thanks to its crafting convenience and great taste.
The brand has also introduced the NESCAFÉ Plan which is aimed at growing, making, and enjoying their coffee respectfully in aid of sustainability.
Thanks to clever, celebrity-endorsed marketing campaigns, Nespresso is also a widely recognizable coffee brand produced by Nestlé.
Nespresso is a coffee brand that specializes in producing espresso brewing machines with accompanying coffee capsules or pods, that can be used at home or even in a professional setting.
Just about anybody can be a barista, as it’s an efficient and easy way to produce high-quality espresso, without the normal amount of effort or expensive machinery required.
When inserted into a machine, the capsule gets pierced and processed, with hot water is then forced against a heating element at high pressure meaning that only the quantity for a single serving is warmed, and served straight into a cup.
All Nespresso coffee is roasted, ground, and encapsulated in one in Switzerland and comes in a multitude of different flavors, roasts, and types, meaning that you are forever spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting your brew.
