Posted by Media Release Agency on 4th November 2020

This month, Nespresso Australiaopens its Casa Nespresso: Our House of Gifting doors to reveal a new range of festive coffees and accessories.

Available in boutiques and online, with the accessories and advent calendar following later this month, Nespresso has gift-giving for coffee lovers neatly wrapped.

Counting down has never been so rewarding, with the new, beautifully designed Coffee Advent Calendar made to be displayed on kitchen countertops and including 23 different coffees and a surprise accessory. Available in luxurious cobalt blue and gold, each door on the calendar opens to reveal a perfectly placed Original Line Nespresso coffee, including the limited-edition Festive Variations Italia range, and single origin coffees. 

“Italy is renowned for its coffee culture; the very culture that inspired Nespresso’s creation many years ago,” comments Jean-Marc Dragoli, Business Executive Officer, Nespresso Oceania. “Now, with over 30 years’ of experience celebrating quality coffee from around the world, we are excited to hero our inspiring country’s Festive Variations Italia range in Australia, just in time for celebrating the festive season.”

Inspired by the charming traditions of Italy, Festive Variations Italia is sure to surprise and delight taste buds with four limited-edition blends to mark the merry season. Amaretti, honouring the Italian almond biscuit; Il Caffe, an ode to a classic, strong Italian espresso; Pecan Biscotti, a nutty, velvety blend, celebrating the Italian biscuit and Torta di Nocciole, a festive feast with its nuances of toasted hazelnuts, alongside vanilla notes.

Paying further homage to Italy’s celebrated style and culture, Nespresso have partnered with renowned Italian design brand, Alessi, to create the perfect gift for coffee lovers. The result is a beautifully appointed centrepiece bowl, created for showcasing coffee capsules and featuring an exclusive granulated finish, reinterpreting an ancient Italian goldsmithing technique.
