Nespresso expands coffee purchases in post-conflict Colombia
Wednesday, November 29, 2017
Nestle Nespresso said on Tuesday it plans a substantial increase in the amount of coffee it buys from one of the regions hardest hit by Colombia’s long-running guerrilla war, as it sources more beans from southern Caqueta province.
Colombia is the world’s biggest producer of mild arabica beans, some of the highest quality coffee. In 2016, Nespresso bought its first coffee from Caqueta - and launched it this year as a limited edition called “Aurora de la Paz,” which translates as “Dawn of Peace.”
