Move Over George Clooney: Makho Ndlovu Partners Nespresso for "REVIVING ORIGINS" Campaign for Coffee Made In Honde Valley

Nespresso’s REVIVING ORIGINS program has been working with local farmers in Eastern Zimbabwe to provide training and resources they need to improve the quality and yield of their coffee crops. This collaboration has been instrumental in restoring the spirit of the local coffee community and reviving a flowery espresso, once nearly lost for good.

To celebrate the return of Tamuka mu Zimbabwe, an Arabica coffee that bursts with complex fruitiness and zesty bright acidity, Nespresso partnered Makho Ndlovu to highlight how the company is making a difference in Zimbabwe restoring lands which have undergone political unrest, economic instability, and environmental disaster. She talks about her love of Zimbabwe and encourages others to share what they love about the country.


Zimbabwean coffee was once highly regarded for its quality, a prince among African coffees. In the late 1980s, Zimbabwean coffee farmers produced over 15,000 tones of coffee a year, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, placing it firmly among the top global coffee producers.

The Swiss coffee company has invested in 450 local smallholdings in partnership with the non-profit TechnoServe, bringing in seven agronomists to help train farmers in sustainable farming and skills such as coffee processing and tree management.
