The ultimate gift guide for coffee lovers

We all know someone who can only function with coffee. When it comes to the daily dose of java, caffeine-lovers fall on a spectrum: From the serious coffee connoisseur who scours the world for different beans, to those who want a quick quality fix and others who see coffee as an art form.

One thing remains the same for all of them: Coffee is essential in their everyday lives. As the festive season looms ahead and the scramble for gifts enters full swing, we’ve teamed up with Nespresso this year to showcase some of the best gifts for the coffee lover in your life, no matter which type.

For those who want a simple fix

The Inissia machine is the perfect gift for coffee-addicts who don’t have the luxury of countertop space. The design has been streamlined for maximum efficiency without sacrificing coffee quality. In just 25 seconds, the Inissia will heat the water to the perfect temperature so that you can make a cup of coffee from any of the 28 Nespresso blends.

Nespresso is offering 15% off the Inissia machine this festive season, 11 Nov 2019 to 2 Jan 2020.

For those who require a little extra something

Espresso, Lungo or Americano? If your loved one’s answer is all of the above, the new Essenza Plus might be the perfect present. This nifty number comes bearing coffee in four different cup sizes, plus hot water for tea. What’s more, the Essenza Plus can be paired with the Nespresso app for repurchases and delivery when capsules are running low and the hustle leaves no time for anything else.

For all the latte lovers

Coffee purists may say the only way to have your cuppa is to have it black, but we beg to differ. Milk in your coffee is a great way to bring out the flavours of the beans while creating a rich and creamy drink for everyone to enjoy. The Lattissima One machine comes with a one-touch fresh milk system that creates your mid-day Cappuccino or Latte Macchiato, on top of the usual Espresso and Lungo. Its design is clean, compact and convenient and will froth milk directly into the cup without any of the hassle.

For your favourite in-house barista

This year, Nespresso’s inspiration comes from Nordic indulgences and the creation of heartwarming moments with loved ones at home. These new limited-edition flavours are perfect for a little bit of extra indulgence during the festive season. From delightful fruity flavours to smooth biscuity aromas, round up the season of joy with a warm cuppa in hand to celebrate the end of another great year.

To get a taste of Kvæfjordkake, or what Norwegian locals call “the world’s best cake”, try the new Variations Nordic Almond Cake Flavoured coffee. It begins with biscuity aromas with hints of almond that slowly transits to notes of fragrant vanilla custard cream and a sprinkle of subtle meringue sweetness.

Variations Nordic Cloudberry Flavoured

For those unfamiliar with the cloudberry, it is an amber fruit grown across the Arctic Tundra in particularly cold climates. The delicately tart fruit has inspired the Variations Nordic Cloudberry Flavoured coffee. Start with a whiff of floral sweetness and taste the candied fruitiness that balances the hints of acidity.

Nordic Black

The Nordic Black is an aromatic blend of African and South American Arabica beans, rich in luxurious fruity notes with a medium intensity. The light-bodied cup of joe tastes beautiful served black but is equally amazing when paired with milk.

This festive season, Nespresso is having an exclusive festive special with machine offers of up to 20% from 11 Nov 2019 to 2 Jan 2020 so that your favourite coffee-addicts never go without their favourite brew.

The machines and indulgent festive flavours are available online and at all Nespresso boutiques (ION Orchard, Vivocity, Raffles City, Takashimaya, Tampines Mall (Pop-Up) and Marina Bay Sands (Pop-Up). Hop on to their Instagram page to discover their festive collection.
