The trials and experiments lasted many years until the first great success, the production of the first instant coffee. It was in 1938 when the Nestle researchers presented in Switzerland the discovery loved by millions of people across the world.

Today, NESCAFE, so well known to us, accompanies us with its excellent taste throughout our day.

The production procedure consists of a two stages:


  • Strict selection of green coffee beans and mixing in various varieties, like Arabica and Robusta.
  • The roasting of green coffee brings out all its aromatic and taste capacities and then it is ground.
  • It is then filtered in large coffee makers with warm water, in order to create a very concentrated coffee.


At this stage the coffee is separated from the water by two methods:

  • Spray drying of the coffee, which is Nestle's invention. (This is how Classic and Select are manufactured).
  • Freeze drying. This method is the perfection of the first that Nestle achieved in 1964 (This is how Gold Blend is manufactured).

It was the result of extensive research and hard efforts that changed the scene for the Greek coffee category for ever.
