Origin
FOREST BLACK is a blend of coffees all grown under the leafy canopy of trees. The shade shelters the coffee trees from the direct sun and creates a cooler environment in which the fruit can mature more slowly. That slower ripening of the coffee cherry protects the aromas that later develop during roasting and brewing. These shade-grown coffees—hailing from origins respected for this approach—often deliver on flavours that’ll also remind you of the forest. A complex split-roast blend of Arabicas from Colombia, Peru, Guatemala and India bring exotic woody notes, and aromas of peppery spices that dance through these coffees once roasted and brewed.

To celebrate all that flavour, Nespresso is stepping in to help protect 10 million trees from being cut down in the Amazon rainforest. Johanna Ortiz—Colombian designer and active supporter in the fight against climate change—brings the heart and soul of this passion to protect trees and nature to life in her vibrant and beautiful design of our Festive 2021 capsules.
Roasting
This blend is roasted using the split-roast technique (50/50). The first split is slightly lighter and longer than the second, which balances it out with a darker roast. The result is a balanced, medium-dark blend.
Aromatic Profile
Woody, peppery spice, and sweet cereal notes abound; a delicate acidity shimmering through as subtly as sunlight filtering through canopy leaves.
