Brazilian coffee meets Swiss science. That’s how NESCAFÉ was born. It all started in 1930, when the Brazilian government asked the NESTLÉ company to create “coffee cubes”. The Brazilians’ goal was to use their large coffee surplus.
Eight years of research resulted in a coffee that could be made by simply adding water but which retained the coffee's natural flavours.
Soluble coffee was introduced to the world on April 1, 1938. The new product was named NESCAFÉ – a combination of NESTLÉ and café.
During World War II, it became the staple beverage of the US armed forces and, from then on, its popularity really took off. NESCAFÉ has become the favourite coffee of many generations all over the world.
