* The World Bank estimated in a report about 10 years ago that 10-20% of the worldwide coffee crop be considered gourmet coffee, a category defined by the industry. Since Nespresso has very strict taste criteria, a sourcing approach based on terroir specificities and a quality management process more stringent than for the gourmet coffee category, we estimate that within this particular gourmet coffee category, only another 10-20% of the coffee matches our taste and quality requirements. This is why we estimate that only 1-2% of the worldwide coffee crop matches our requirements.
