I am a Nespresso fan, and I tested its wide range of OriginalLine and VertuoLine machines. Similarly, I bought, tested, and reviewed many Nespresso capsules. I found Nespresso brewing systems inexpensive; they made my life easy and took away my habit of visiting coffee shops. Recently, I tried a Nespresso Amaha Awe Uganda capsule. It is a vibrant pod with good intensity and a full body, a coffee from the heart of Africa. It works well with milk, syrups, sauces, etc., allowing you to brew your favorite hot/iced coffee recipes at home. Let’s explore more facts about this capsule.

Nespresso Amaha Awe Uganda Coffee Pods Taste Test
My Amaha Awe Uganda had a black color. I brewed it as an espresso with my Nespresso Gran Lattissima coffee maker. My shot was dark and had a pleasant sandalwood aroma. When I took my first sip, I found it too strong, making my eyes watery. The subtle tart and floral notes hit my palate, while sandalwood notes were dominant. It was a strong shot, giving me a drying effect.
Next, I frothed the milk and brewed Uganda lungo shot over it. I took a sip and still found sandalwood notes. The punchy bitter notes touched the tip of my tongue. However, it was a balanced cup. If you love dark roasts, these pods will satisfy you.

Amaha Awe Uganda Nespresso Capsules Features — An In-Depth Insight
Here are the attributes that make Amaha Awe Uganda pod different from other Nespresso capsules. These features will help you decide when to brew this intense coffee blend, whether it will satisfy your taste buds and many more things. Let’s scroll down.
Origin — Ugandan Arabica Beans
Nespresso Amaha Awe Uganda blends Ugandan Arabica beans from the Rwenzori Mountains. This mountain is called the mountains of the moon, stretching 120 km along Western Uganda. The snow-capped and glacier peaks offer steady water sources to complement the rainfall. The abundant rainfall nourishes the fertile soils.
High above the 1200m mark grows a rare or almost forgotten coffee. Its unique terroir is complemented by the shade and nutrients provided by banana trees, creating a true Arabica dreamland. The isolation and neglect years were clear in the cup.
Roasting Level — 4 out of 5
In this Nespresso coffee blend, the beans are split-roasted. The first split is roasted darker to enhance complexity, body, and balance with the wild notes that come from the natural (dry) process. The second split is roasted more lightly to explore the tropical fruit character while preserving the general intensity and round mouthfeel.
Aroma — Sandalwood
As soon as I brewed the Amaha Awe Uganda capsule, the pleasant sandalwood aroma soothed my mind. This scent was unique from other Nespresso pods.

Its flavor profile made it different from all other Nespresso capsules.

What Is Nespresso Reviving Origins Program?
Reviving Origins is a long-term program in which Nespresso partners with farmers to restore coffee regions. For centuries, the fertile soils of Uganda’s Rwenzori mountains made for exceptional coffee farming and had ideal Arabic conditions. But it is dying due to a lack of appropriate farming practices.
Nespresso partners started the Reviving Origins program in 2018 and joined with over 2,000 smallholder farmers to increase the quality and yield of their coffee. They worked together, developed good farming practices (agricultural practices), harvested great coffee, transformed smallholder’s coffee culture, and improved livelihoods.
