Nespresso Master Origins – Ethiopia (2021 Review)

If you are looking for coffee that brings excellent flavors into your home, then the Ethiopian Nespresso is a great choice. The Ethiopian Nespresso comes in a black box with orange detailing that gives it a touch of luxury, class, and sophistication. The packaging also features graphics of workers.

The Ethiopian Nespresso capsules are orange in color, and there are 10 in each box. The box is easy to open, which is good. You can close it after use and store it in your cabinets easily. Each container of 10 capsules costs $4.10 and makes 1.35oz of espresso and 3.70 oz of lungo. The company uses aluminum packaging because it is highly recyclable, meaning it is good for the environment.

Coffee Origins

The coffee used in the Ethiopian Nespresso is sourced in the East African country of Ethiopia. Farmers in Ethiopia use traditional growing methods and sundry the Arabica coffee beans. Farmers use hand-turning to ensure that the coffee dries evenly, which gives it its natural flavor. An interesting fact to remember as you consider this coffee is that Ethiopia is considered the birthplace of coffee.
