The holiday season has officially begun and that means it is time to scour high and low for that perfect set of gifts for your loved ones (and even to reward yourselves)!
And if you are a coffee lover like us, then Nespresso has just launched Casa Nespresso (the coffeemaker's very own "house of gifting") with an array of delightful new assortments to satisfy your needs including limited edition coffee range, an advent calendar and accessories – each created to bring joy and merriment to your daily lives.
In the spirit of the gifting season, we bring you six exciting Nespresso products to add to your shopping list (plus a special recipe video for you to add flavour to your festive meals).
THE NESPRESSO LIMITED EDITION VARIATIONS ITALIA COFFEE
Paying homage to its Italian heritage, Nespresso introduces three new limited edition coffee flavours with Casa Nespresso – Variations Italia Amaretti Flavour, Variations Italia Torta di Nocciole Flavour and Il Caffè – where each is inspired by traditional Italian flavours of regional sweet treats, including hazelnut cake and amaretti.
Within this limited range, there are two flavoured options. First is the Variations Italia Amaretti that has almond and vanilla notes is inspired by Amaretti, a traditional Italian biscuit known for an unmistakable bittersweet taste.
For the Variations Italia Torta di Nocciole Flavour, it highlights a cereal taste with notes of toasted hazelnut and vanilla. As for the non-flavoured coffee flavour, Il Café, it takes you to the heart of the Italian espresso experience with Vietnamese and Indonesian washed robustas paired with a hit of flavourful Colombian Arabica.
If you are looking for a generous gift, there is also the Festive Exclusive Selection 5-Sleeve Pack that makes a great addition for an experiential gift for the giftee to discover his/her favourite Nespresso flavour.
