Kuala Lumpur, 7 November 2022 – Nespresso and world-renowned pastry chef and chocolatier Pierre Hermé are thrilled to join forces and announce a capsule collection to kick off the festive season. The exclusive coffees are a celebration of refined tastes and indulgence, representing the best of the best across gustatory pleasures.
The limited-edition collaboration builds upon Pierre Hermé’s extensive background as an expert of flavour, putting forth a collection that deepens the indulgence of the palate by relishing in the shared joy that we experience with friends and family. Herein lies an invitation to gather, to discover and delight in unexpected surprises: from the visceral pleasures of tasting a new coffee to the combined laughter between friends, fuller stories are written with the Nespresso | Pierre Hermé coffees that bring the art of the haute pâtisserie into the everyday, enriching both in equal measure.
From the creator of the Haute Pâtisserie, Pierre Hermé’s pastries are at the apex of avant-garde design, skilled technique and refined flavours. Decades of experience beginning with an apprenticeship at age 14 for Gaston Lenôtre, widely considered the father of modern pastry, led to Pierre Hermé being crowned the prestigious title of World’s Best Pastry Chef in 2016. With namesake boutiques and cafés all over the globe, Pierre Hermé’s creativity and sophistication in gastronomy is unparalleled. His unmistakably modern imagination pairs with technique to craft the ultimate coffee for the most discerning of palates – epicures will delight in the complex flavours while rejoicing in the ease of use, all in the comfort of one’s own home.
The collaboration consists of delightful coffees and gifting with Nespresso rounding out the festive season’s offerings by adding accessories to bring Nespresso quality into all areas of one’s day.
The offerings begin with the Infiniment Espresso, a black single origin coffee from Colombia sourced from the new supplying region of Tolima, where farmers mostly use natural methods and prioritise low-impact agriculture. The Arabica beans bloom with vibrant red fruit and smooth cereal notes, expressing an impressive depth of flavour and an elegant mouthfeel, representing an ode to the art of those who play with taste.
The espresso offerings also include two flavoured coffees: the Infiniment Gourmand Saveur Noisette and Infiniment Fruité Saveur Framboise. Crafted from delicately sweet South American Arabica beans, the Infiniment Gourmand Saveur Noisette begins with the unmistakable aroma of roasted hazelnuts flavour followed by sweet top notes of almond biscotti and delicate vanilla. The refreshingly smooth Infiniment Fruité Saveur Framboise articulates a smooth cereal aroma pairing beautifully with the alluring flavour of raspberries. Both of these inspire a premium pastry experience by declaring the same complex flavours one associates with Pierre Hermé’s elevated pastries.
Celebrating indulgence and gourmandise, Nespresso took inspiration from Pierre Hermé’s world and curated several coffee recipes that maximise the delicious aroma of the limited-edition coffees, namely Espresso Macchiato Lime & Basil Facon Crème Brûlée, Roasted Hazelnut Latte Macchiato, and Raspberry & Rose Mocktail. The recipes can be found at https://www.nespresso.com/my/
Rounding out the festive collection is this season’s Advent Calendars, containing 24 coffees and a surprise gift for the last day. The giftable advent calendars contain the three co-created Nespresso | Pierre Hermé coffees as well as favorites from the Nespresso permanent range, offering a different coffee behind each door for a delightful surprise on the path to the festive season, all presented in an exquisite box designed to be reused afterwards.
Crowning the collection is the Nomad Travel Mug in a Raspberry color, giving the ability to take the flavours from the artistry of haute pastry anywhere, anytime. With just a simple touch of a button on our coffee machines – be it the Nespresso Atelier or the Nespresso Essenza Mini – coffee drinkers can enjoy a perfect, heartwarming moment with Nespresso coffees this year-end holiday.
Celebrating Heartwarming Holiday with Sophisticated Jingle
