A freshly brewed cup of coffee envelops a room and—quite literally— awakens the senses. Here's how to give it a sumptuous holiday spin.
With its unmistakably moreish and comforting aroma, a freshly brewed cup of coffee envelops a room and—quite literally— awakens the senses. Also, up there in the olfactory hall of fame: freshly baked pastries and melting chocolate. So, this holiday season, it seems only fitting that Nespresso has partnered with world-renowned pastry chef and chocolatier Pierre Hermé to craft an exclusive Festive Collection.
Infusing our southern hemisphere festivities with a touch of Parisian je ne sais quoi, the bespoke Festive Collection features indulgent limited edition coffees, elevated accessories and Vertuo machines.
There’s just something about the ritual of coffee that invites a moment of pause and shared indulgence with friends and family. In the inimitable Festive Collection, Pierre Hermé draws on his extensive patisserie know-how and appreciation for the art of coffee, to capture and celebrate those moments of connection.
The collection includes three Vertuo coffees—Infiniment Double Espresso, Infiniment Fruité and Infiniment Gourmand—that channel notes from fresh raspberry to roasted hazelnut and almond biscotti. Wrapped in gold speckle motifs, the capsules make for a decidedly stylish stocking stuffer. As for the accessories, coffee aficionados are treated to a selection of beautiful, limited-edition gifts and accessories including the now famous Nespresso Advent Calendar (Original and Vertuo) and the Café Noble scented candle. Rounding out the festive offering is the Vertuo Next Machines, in a new sleek silver or titan finish.
Sharing the same uncompromising attention to detail, dedication to quality, and most importantly taste, the Nespresso Pierre Hermé Festive Collection 2022 promises to delight even the most discerning of coffee lovers in your life.
Bringing the collection to life, Nespresso NZ’s Coffee Ambassador Jaime Conger has crafted indulgent coffee recipes inspired by the co-created range.
