There really is something for all ages at the ‘Soul of Coffee’ photography exhibition, whether it’s learning more about sustainability in the film room inside the Princess of Wales Conservatory, finding out where your cup of coffee originates, enjoying the photographic artwork on display outside the Princess of Wales Conservatory or simply setting up a picnic with loved ones in the backdrop of the stunning exhibition.

Nespresso has partnered with internationally renowned photojournalist and celebrated humanitarian REZA, to create the ‘Soul of Coffee’ exhibition at Kew Gardens. The exhibition is an artistic venture designed to portray and pay tribute to the individuals who produce the highest quality coffee through sustainable methods to commemorate the 10th year anniversary of the Nespresso AAA Sustainability Programme.
The ‘Soul of Coffee’ exhibition will feature at Kew Gardens throughout the duration of the IncrEdibles festival at a specially designed gallery from the 12th July, located outside the Princess of Wales Conservatory. The multi-media experience and exhibition of coffee farming practices and the people and places at the heart of Nespresso coffee production, will be available to all visitors to Kew Gardens.
During a four month journey through Nespresso countries of origin including Colombia, Brazil, Guatemala, Ethiopia and India, REZA witnessed and investigated the AAA Sustainable Quality ™ Program and is hopeful the exhibition captures the inner passion of the dedicated coffee producers: "I hope that this photographic testimony will allow each individual and visitor to Kew Gardens to see the faces of the human beings who contributed to the making of their daily cup of coffee" says REZA.
Nespresso AAA Sustainability Programme
The Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program has been developed in collaboration with the international NGO the Rainforest Alliance. Launched in 2003, the Program is based on the direct relationship with individual farm communities and over 52,000 farmers. The Program seeks to ensure the highest quality and sustainability in the coffee supply chain, while helping to improve the standard of living for farmers and their families. Today 68% of Nespresso green coffee is sourced from AAA Program farms, with a goal to increase this to 80% by the end of 2013.
