Nestlé Nespresso SA has for long been the pioneer and reference for highest-quality portioned coffee. This year, in conjunction with renowned interior designer India Mahdavi, Nespresso has launched a Parisian Gourmandise inspired Limited Edition festive collection, featuring a range of coffees, that add a touch of European glamour to the holiday season. Mahdavi’s influence on the collection is seen in the range’s pastel hues and playful designs as though each creation was treated as a couture piece.
“I sought to bring an oneiric dimension to Nespresso’s world in which these new capsules appear as imaginary delights, floating like sweet clouds in the sky. These voluptuous forms, reminiscent of childhood, suggest a fantasized “gourmandise”. Nespresso speaks to the senses – celebrating taste under all its aspects, ranging from sight to touch via smell, with subtly sweet aromas. I wanted to add a hint of reverie. Offering delight capsules for the eyes to relish and to then fly away in each and everyone’s imagination.” – Interior designer India Mahdavi
The collection is fit for the most discerning of coffee aficionados since it includes unique flavoured coffees in addition to a non-flavoured version. There are two flavoured coffee variations and one iconic black to try, each with an India Mahdavi designed aluminium capsule.
Each of the variations have been based on the Nespresso Livanto coffee blend which consists of Pure Arabica from Southern and Central America. It is well balanced with a roasted caramelized note providing roundness and balance in the finished coffees:
Nespresso Variations Macaron – a harmonious combination of Livanto’s cereal notes and a subtle and sweet almond flavour, emblematic of the macaron pastry.
Nespresso Variations Praline – This flavoured espresso pairs the roundness of Livanto’s base with a delicate roasted hazelnut flavour, enhanced by a touch of caramel sweetness. A harmonious blend reminiscent of a praliné dessert.
Nespresso Paris Black – A very aromatic blend of Arabicas, emboldened by Robusta. It displays notes of cereal and nuts in a syrupy texture, combined with spicy and woody tones.
Perfect for gifting, these limited-edition variations are sure to transport coffee lovers to a Parisian Patisserie through their unique flavours.
