Our roadmap for sustainable growth

Our success is built on 3 Key Growth Drivers:

  • Creating the highest quality Grand Cru coffees for our consumers and Club Members

Our perfectly portioned Grand Cru coffees are selected from the top 1-2% of the world’s green coffee production. Our experts specially roast and blend these coffees to create the widest selection of Grand Cru varieties to suit every taste. Our passion for perfection is truly reflected in our unsurpassed coffee quality.

  • Creating long-lasting consumer relationships

One of the most valuable aspects of the Nespresso brand is the relationship that we have with our consumers and Club Members. Every day we cultivate direct and personal relationships with millions of passionate consumers, allowing us to continually anticipate expectations and evolve to meet them.

  • Creating sustainable business growth

Nespresso takes a long-term, holistic approach to sustainability. We are committed to ensure sustainability across all operations, from coffee sourcing to capsule recycling, setting clear targets and seeking to create shared value for the business and for society. Our Ecolaboration™program provides a framework for partnerships and innovation to drive on-going, sustainable development. For us, Ecolaboration™ is our way of doing business.

These will continue to be the Key Growth Drivers of our business moving forward, as we compete in the dynamic and growing portioned coffee category.

The Nespresso Sustainability Program

Nestlé Nespresso SA works directly with over 70,000 farmers in 12 countries through its AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program to embed sustainability practices on farms and the surrounding landscapes. 

Launched in 2003 in collaboration with The Rainforest Alliance, the program helps to improve the yield and quality of harvests, ensuring a sustainable supply of high quality coffee and improving livelihoods of farmers and their communities.

Nespresso is known for purchasing some of the world’s finest coffees. 

Great products always start with the best ingredients. We know that the highest quality coffee - with the aromatic specificity we need to create our Grand Cru blends - is not produced by chance. Which is why we are so lucky to be working closely with some 70,000 coffee farmers, many of whom have been members of our AAA Sustainable Quality Program for more than 10 years. And it’s only thanks to these farmers (of approximately 25 million globally) that we are able to meet the high quality standards we set for ourselves.

    I have been working at Nespresso USA full-time (More than a year)


    I've been a team lead manager at a boutique in a mall for about a year and a half now. It's challenging to learn all of the policies and procedures and technology but I always feel supported, encouraged and recognized by management (all the way up to corporate) whenever I have questions or need help. Sometimes there is a delay or no current answer but I always feel validated in asking for help. Someone is always willing to help when needed. I would describe the culture as "We're all in this together, so let's help each other."

    Nespresso boutiques feel like a still very new branch in America and as such there is a lot of opportunity to be a part of creating new and improving existing policies and procedures. I definitely feel heard here and have already seen many improvements. It's clear they have good intentions and care about each employee's experience.

    Advancement opportuniy is encouraged through self-driven personal development planning with your direct manager and is a priority. However, the exact advancement process is currently unclear and confusing. This year, I see that they are working on developing a clearer path. Succession planning is definitely a priority here.

    The bonus structure and raises are generous, timely and consistent. No complaints there.

    The benefits are many and as such can be overwhelming to navigate through and take advantage of but once you understand them all, it's more benefits in more areas of life than I've ever experienced or even heard of! I feel like every time I turn around, they're giving us something! Here are a few of my favorites:
    Free machines & coffee
    401K matching
    HSA contribution and investment opportunities
    FSA account
    Inexpensive and really good family medical/vision/dental
    14 weeks paid maternity leave
    Tuition reimbursement

    I fully intend to stay with this company as long as possible, hopefully to retirement!


    Still figuring some things out but with good intentions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the little guys, we appreciate it! Thanks for all the benefits!
