Nespresso Master Origin – Ethiopia

Ethiopia by Nespresso

Ethiopia by Nespresso is single-origin coffee from the Master Origin collection. Its aroma is smooth and superbly balanced, combining sweet and fresh berries with dark chocolate. The taste is mellow, skilfully bringing together fresh acidity of passion fruit and sweet lime with the sweetness of caramel and dark cocoa bitterness.

The master-origin series Ethiopia has a very pleasant, smooth and superbly balanced aroma, which offers a concert of sweet and fruity notes. Aromas of ripe cherries in velvety hot chocolate, irresistible blueberries, fresh strawberries or buttery shortbreads with lemon zest, vanilla and cinnamon, we found it all. There’s always a light, acidic touch that balances the sweetness.


The taste is mellow, fresh and again excellently balanced. It combines the sweet acidity of passion fruit with rich dark chocolate and sweet lime with caramel. The fresh acidity is always mellowed by sweetness while dark cocoa supplies enriching bitterness.


The extraction process is flawless and resulting crema is rich and tall.
