Nescafé unveils new coffee blends

Nestlé has announced from the Nescafé Gold Blend Roastery Collection, the launch of its barista-style soluble coffees that harness the company’s unique expertise in roasting technology to deliver new taste profiles.

The newly introduced blend was produced in close partnership with the company’s coffee business, Zone EMENA and the UK market ,where the new range is now on sale – experts at Nestlé’s coffee research and development centre in Orbe, Switzerland developed innovative approaches to roasting for this range, plus recipes and packaging – all within an eight-month timescale from idea to launch.

Processed under the relentless efforts and expertise of different roasting profiles for the Arabica and Robusta beans used in the two new blends, experimenting with roasting levels and roasting times. ‘The Light Roast’ has a smoother, more delicate taste, with notes of caramelized honey and toasted biscuit, while ‘The Dark Roast’ is bold and intense, with notes of dark chocolate and roasted nut.

The coffee beans are grown and produced in a sustainable way that benefits coffee farmers and the environment and is packaged in aluminium tins that are 100% recyclable and plastic-free – to support Nestlé’s 2025 packaging commitment

Damien Tissot, Head of Nestlé Product Technology Center Beverage in Orbe, said: “Nescafé Gold Blend Roastery Collection delivers amazing new taste profiles, due to an innovative roasting process that allows us to emphasize the natural taste of the different beans and use them in our blends, fitting the current trend towards speciality coffee. The plastic-free packaging is another proof of our commitment to delivering sustainable innovation for all Nestlé coffee brands.”

Don Howat, Global Category Leader for Nescafé, said: “This is a great concept based on really strong consumer insight. The range was developed in record time and we’re excited to be launching in the UK, then quickly rolling out to other markets. Fantastic teamwork!”

Two additional soluble coffee innovations have also been  launched in the UK. Nescafé Azera Craft Coffee, the UK’s first craft coffee in instant format, and Nescafé Azera My Way Latte, the market’s first instant latte that can be prepared using a choice of milk or plant-based milk alternatives.
