We are proud of the espresso that made our reputation.
The quest for better coffee inspired the first Caffè Nero in 1997 and sustaining that ambition and excellence remains at the heart of everything we do. No cutting corners, stay focused on excellence and treat people with kindness.
That is why we have grown: one coffee, one customer and one store at a time.
Even though we now have over 1000 coffee houses around the world, we continue to reinvest and work hard to improve. The pursuit of excellence, determination and resilience that got us started, is still present in everything we do today.
Our resident Coffee Master knows there are no shortcuts to sourcing great coffee. A born explorer and expert in soil and crops, he has devoted his life to seeking out the most progressive coffee farmers across Latin America, East Africa, and Southeast Asia.
Those who truly understand the relationship between bean and environment. We work alongside the Rainforest Alliance to encourage long-term sustainability and are in constant conversation with growers, doing whatever we can to guarantee quality and consistency. Building these relationships takes time and lots of effort, but we think its worth it.
The beans we select are grown at high altitudes, in rich soil, and picked by hand at exactly the right time in their harvest cycle. They are simply better quality beans and able to complement our meticulous roasting methods.
