Nespresso’s new festive range will have you tasting unforgettable coffee this holiday season

Every year, Nespresso delights us with a new collection of coffee capsules, designed especially to mark the holidays. And this year, the brand’s highly-anticipated Festive Collection comprises six exclusive coffees that promise to ignite our senses and keep us perfectly satiated over the Christmas period.

The heroes of this year’s collection include six new limited-edition coffee blends for Vertuo and Original, each one offering a unique take on the flavours that are so reminiscent of this time. The Caramel & Almond, for instance, embraces Nespresso’s smooth blend of Latin America and African Arabicas to offer notes of vanilla biscuit and malty cereal, wrapped up in a warning caramel flavour, while the Seasonal Delight Spices is a soulful coffee (inspired by mulled wine) where delightfully spicy notes meet festive citrus, designed to warm with every sip. The Festive Black coffee is a woody and spicy number, where a blend of Arabicas from Honduras, Uganda and beyond create an aromatic experience of roasted wood, sweet spices and ripe, jammy fruits.

To make the most of this exceptional collection, you can’t get much better than Nespresso’s innovative Vertuo Creatista machine in stainless steel. Made for brewing barista-style coffee at home, this machine harnesses unique barcode technology to scan each Nespresso capsule and adjust the extraction settings to make the perfect Vertuo coffee every time. Whether you take your coffee short and black, long and black, cold, milky, frothy or anything in between, the Vertuo Creatista will deliver a professional-level coffee with consistency, also boasting an automatic steam wand that creates perfectly textured milk.
