Nescafé and Google team up for VR coffee farm

Want to watch your beans grow in Brazil?

Nescafé has partnered with Google to show consumers what life is like on a coffee farm using a 360-degree immersive app.

The app, on Android and Apple, gives smartphone users a panoramic inside view of the way the brand harvests coffee cherries on farms in Brazil.

Using tech based on Google Cardboard, people can tilt in any direction. It is designed to make people feel they are standing in the coffee field themselves and can also be viewed in YouTube. 

The experience has been designed to highlight that Nescafé employs 250 experts in coffee farming and has farms in 10 countries. It also offers education and training in sustainable farming, it said.
