About the COFFEE...
~ Coffee history
Many colourful legends surround the origins of coffee cultivation. Some believe that coffee as we know it was first discovered in the 3rd century, when an Ethiopian goatherd called Kaldi noticed his herd behaving like young kids after eating some stimulating red coffee berries! The goat keeper shared his discovery with the abbot of a nearby monastery, who decided to test the power of the berry himself.
He poured boiling water onto the berries he had collected and made a drink which he found helped him to stay awake during long hours of prayer. While many other legends deal with the origins of coffee, its actual discovery remains a mystery – which is hardly surprising, given that coffee’s known history dates back thousands of years.
Legends aside, we know for a fact that the first commercial cultivation was reported in Arabia in the 15th century. For a long time, trade in the precious commodity was jealously guarded, with Arab farmers making every effort to stop other countries acquiring their precious beans.
Over time, however, seed-beans and plant cuttings found their way to Aden, Egypt, Syria and Turkey, where coffee became known as the ‘wine of Araby.’
In the 18th century, missionaries, traders and colonists took coffee to Central and South America. The natural environment proved ideal for cultivating coffee, and coffee growing spread rapidly. By the late 1800s coffee had become one of the world’s major export crops, especially in developing countries.
Today, coffee is one of the world’s largest trading commodities – second only to oil. It is worth more than $12 billion dollars in trade every year, mainly between developing countries, where it is grown, and industrialized countries, where it is consumed.
The price of coffee remains highly volatile. Being an agricultural commodity, coffee suffers from sharp variations in supply as a result of changes in environmental conditions. Most of the world’s coffee crop is produced in Southern and Central America, Asia and Africa.
Coffee is the 2nd most consumed beverage worldwide after water. The United States is the biggest importer of coffee, taking around a sixth of the world’s yearly crop. However, the nation that consumes the most per capita is Finland, with the average Finn drinking around 1400 cups each year!
The modern world is full of coffee moments… We wake up with coffee, we refresh ourselves with coffee and coffee keeps us going during the day. Coffee can be a break, a chance to relax and reflect, or to share a moment together.
The rich taste of your favourite coffee is reflected in its rich history. The beginnings of NESCAFÉ can be traced all the way back to 1930, when the Brazilian government first approached Nestlé. Our coffee specialist, Max Morgenthaler, and his team set out to find a way of producing a quality cup of coffee that could be made simply by adding water, yet would retain the coffee’s natural flavour. After seven long years of research in our Swiss laboratories, they found the answer.
The new product was named NESCAFÉ – a combination of the Nes-root of Nestlé and the word café. NESCAFÉ was first introduced in Switzerland, on April 1st, 1938. For the first half of the next decade, however, World War II hindered its success in Europe. NESCAFÉ was soon exported to France, Great Britain and the USA. American forces played a key role in re-launching NESCAFÉ in Europe by virtue of the fact that it was included in their food rations. Its popularity grew rapidly through the rest of the decade. By the 1950s, coffee had become the beverage of choice for teenagers, who were flocking to coffee-houses to hear the new rock ’n’ roll music. In 1965 NESCAFÉ continued to bring you the world's best cup of coffee by introducing freeze-dried soluble coffee with the launch of Gold Blend. A few years later we invented a new technology to capture more aroma and flavour from every single coffee bean. In 1994 the 'full aroma' process was invented to make the unique quality and character of NESCAFÉ even better.
Today, our NESCAFÉ coffees are available to suit all tastes and in a wide range of packaging. NESCAFÉ now produces many different types ... which one is your favourite?

Enjoy your NESCAFÉ Café latte!
Preparation Time: 2 minutes
2 tsp NESCAFÉ Classic
2 tsp sugar
Pour 10-15ml of water in the shaker (preferably not chilled, but chilled will still do)
Add two tea-spoonfuls of NESCAFÉ Classic and one tea-spoonful of sugar, or more if desired.
Shake strongly until all the water becomes foam. Potential use of an electric hand mixer, instead of a shaker, will make a more nice, shiny and creamy foam.
Pour into a glass of 250ml, add 3-4 ice cubes and chilled water to fill the glass for black NESCAFÉ Frappé. For white NESCAFÉ Frappé, add 20-30ml chilled milk. Ideal serving temperature is 10 degrees Celsius.
Enjoy your NESCAFÉ Frappé!
The quantity of water in step 1 plays an important role in creating qualitative foam. A very small quantity will not produce enough foam while a large quantity will produce soapy foam.
If you desire different dosages of coffee and/or sugar, the exact quantity of water in step 1 should vary accordingly.
Milk should always be put after stirring otherwise the foam loses all its stability.
