A Festive Espresso Bar? Count Me I’m In!

Though the streets of Italy can only be enjoyed via a screen right now, Nespresso is bringing the Italian Christmas spirit to the streets of Auckland.

This holiday season, Nespresso invites coffee-lovers to share an Italian Christmas moment at Caffè Nespresso – a Pop-Up Espresso Car that will offer a taste of Nespresso’s festive Variations Italia coffees, to celebrate the season of togetherness and special moments with loved ones.

But, get in quick, this is very much a ‘pop-up’ and won’t be up for long. From today until the 22nd, Christmas shoppers and coffee enthusiasts can visit Caffè Nespresso at Westfield Newmarket between 10 am to 3 pm to enjoy a taste of Italy with a complimentary festive coffee and sweet treat, before discovering the selection of must-have Nespresso gifting accessories at the Nespresso Boutique. With instore purchase, visitors can also toss a coin into the pop-up Nespresso Trevi Fountain for the chance to win prizes including Nespresso machines, coffee and accessories.

Patrons will have a choice of three festive coffees that are inspired by Italian festivities and flavours, forming Nespresso’s Variations Italiana range available this Christmas.

Choose between Variations Italia Torta di Nocciole, inspired by the traditional Italian hazelnut cake, Variations Italia Amaretti, channelling its namesake biscuit, and II Caffe, a classic black espresso.

Supporting Nespresso’s tribute to Italy this Christmas, popular permanent coffees, Ispirazione Venezia and Ispirazione Napoli, further transport coffee-lovers to Italian festivities.

Whether you’re writing your own wish list or surprising your nearest and dearest, Nespresso’s latest range and selection of must-have accessories is set to make the gifting season simple, with an option to suit every gifter and recipient ready to discover when visiting Caffè Nespresso.

Designed to bring loved ones together over special moments, Nespresso is launching its Variations Italia Limited Edition coffee range to pay homage to Nespresso’s Italian heritage and true Italian hospitality.

Discover this year’s festive range below:

Variations Italia Amaretti Flavour | Intensity: 6

Amaretti are traditional Italian biscuits made using ground almonds, egg whites and sugar, giving them their unmistakable bittersweet taste. Coffee lovers can expect almond and vanilla notes layered with South American Arabica’s lingering cereal character, giving this flavoured coffee a zesty fruit note.

Variations Italia Torta di Nocciole Flavour | Intensity: 6

Variations Italia Torta Di Nocciole Flavour coffee fills out the South American Arabicas’ lasting cereal taste with notes of toasted hazelnut and vanilla. Like coffee and cake, this espresso is a warm and welcoming treat to celebrate the moment together.

II Caffè | Intensity: 13

II Caffe takes you right to the heart of the classic Italian espresso experience. Vietnamese and Indonesian Washed Robustas graced with a little Colombian Arabica hit that punchy combination of smooth, velvety taste and roasty, cereal aromas.

Nespresso Lume Collection

Designed by Milanese designer Federica Biasi, the new Lume Collection is a refreshing twist on the traditional white porcelain coffee cup set. Its timeless, organic shape aims to bring a sense of cosiness and warmth, creating a true moment of coffee indulgence.

The word Lume is Italian for light, which is what Federica Biasi aims to portray through this collection. The delicate design and white matte finish creates a touch of luxury making it a perfect gift for any coffee lover.

Alessi X Nespresso

This year, Nespresso is proud to have partnered with iconic Italian design brand Alessi, co-creating a limited edition centrepiece for entertaining and sharing meaningful moments with loved ones.
