Swiss police say they have seized 500kg of cocaine from a shipment of coffee that was sent to a Nespresso factory.

Workers at the plant in Romont alerted the authorities after finding white powder in sacks of coffee beans.

Police later found more of the drug in five shipping containers. An initial investigation suggested the shipment had come from Brazil.

A Nespresso statement said production of coffee capsules at the plant had not been contaminated by the drug.

"We want to reassure consumers that all our products are safe to consume," the coffee company said.

Has to be more to it than what this is on face value. 500Kgs doesn't get missed shipped by mistake.

Good haul by the police here for sure, but you can bet Nespresso will want to shut this story down ASAP, not exactly good for the brand is it!

I guess considering where the beans are coming from this probably happens more often than we would have thought
