Nothing brightens our mornings more than a cup of coffee, and to kick off the festive season, we’ve got Nespresso teaming up with world-renowned pastry chef and chocolatier Pierre Hermé for a special capsule collection. Inspired by Paris, this is an indulgent series of rich notes from the selection of coffee roasts.
The collection will feature the following coffee blends in the Original and Vertuo ranges:
- Infiniment Double Espresso (from $1 per capsule): Arabica beans with vibrant red fruit and smooth cereal notes for an impressive depth of flavour and elegant mouthfeel
- Infiniment Gourmand Saveur Noisette (from $1 per capsule): Crafted from sweet South American Arabica beans featuring the aroma of roasted hazelnuts and sweet top notes of almond biscotti and vanilla
- Infiniment Fruité Saveur Framboise (from $1 per capsule): Features the tartness of the raspberry flavour juxtaposed with the smooth cereal notes from its Latin American and African Arabicas
To complement the coffees, there are festive gift ideas too, such as The Café Noble Scented Candle ($65), imagined in collaboration with Pierre Hermé and master French perfumer Olivia Giacobetti, and housed in a reusable porcelain vessel while emitting notes of cinnamon, vanilla, spice and a robust Arabica bean when lighted.
This season also sees Original ($50) and Vertuo ($60) Advent Calendars, containing 24 coffees and a surprise gift for the last day. These feature the three co-created Nespresso and Pierre Hermé coffees, as well as favourites from the Nespresso permanent range, offering you a different coffee surprise behind each door in an exquisite box designed to be reused afterwards.
Besides the co-created collection, Nespresso offers up other gift options that include limited-edition coffee machines such as the Vertuo Next (from $338) machine in shiny Silver which will launch on 11 November, the Nomad Travel Mug ($30) in a Raspberry colour and the exclusive RecyClay espresso cup made from recycled materials (only available at Nespresso’s ION boutique).
