A crop of hope
Nespresso’s premier edition of Suluja ti South Sudan in single-serve coffee capsules was produced in such small quantities that only the loyal Nespresso Club members of France were afforded an opportunity to buy the first lot. Now the coffee is again available.
South Sudan is one of the few regions in the world where coffee grows wild and this highly refined Grand Cru selection showcases the distinct flavor characteristics of its untamed heritage. This South Sudan coffee is a fully washed robusta with a bold, silky texture and intense aromas of dried cereals with a subtle woody note.
Quantities are increasing thanks to collaboration between Nespresso and TechnoServe, a non-profit that supports six farmer cooperatives. Farm-level nurseries are raising trees for the future and three new wet mills will soon begin operations joining six already in operation and increasing capacity to provide sufficient quantities for export.
