Delight in limited-edition bespoke festive gifts from Nespresso designed by acclaimed designer Johanna Ortiz
With the festive season upon us, Nespresso presents an enchanting, limited-edition holiday collection, perfect for unique gifts for all coffee aficionados. The full festive collection can be found in boutiques accross the UAE and online from the 9th of November until the 30th of December.
Inspired by the beauty and depth of Nature’s forests, Nespresso’s ‘Gifts of the Forest’ collection encapsulates the brand’s devotion to the precious environment coffee is grown in. The collection features a range of limited-edition coffees for both the Original and Vertuo systems, along with Festive infused accessories, making for delightful and inspiring gifts for family and friends. From forest fruits to luscious canopies of trees, this year’s Festive coffee range includes two flavored coffees and one black coffee.
Coffee lovers can also gift this Festive season knowing Nespresso is giving back to the forest, as the brand goes beyond its agroforestry commitments, by helping to protect 10 million trees in the Amazon.
This holiday season, Nespresso has partnered up with Colombian fashion designer Johanna Ortiz to design the most magical packaging for a range of limited-edition gifts. The designs draw inspiration from the bold yet nostalgic scenes of the forests, further reinforcing the brand’s themes of nature and sustainability.
Johanna Ortiz says “For me, design and nature go hand in hand which is why this collaboration resonated personally. Colombian coffee also has a truly special place in my heart and as an active supporter in the fight against climate change, knowing that Nespresso is going beyond its agroforestry commitments by supporting the protection of 10 million trees in the Amazon, it was another huge reason why this collaboration made perfect sense. When designing the collection, I took the idea of capturing the beauty of the forest throughout every piece, by incorporating rich forest canopies and dark earthy tones within my designs. It’s been an amazing process and partnership which I have deeply enjoyed.”
Explore and wander through Nespresso’s Forest Variations coffees
Make the most of the season and indulge in three variations of coffee each highlighting a distinct flavour that seamlessly blends the foliage with the festive season. Nespresso presents the exotic Forest Black coffee. Made for the Nespresso Original and Vertuo Next, Forest Black’s arabicas from Colombia and beyond grow in the sheltering shade of a canopy of trees that protect the flavours hidden in each bean. Experience this coffee’s alluring spice and cereal notes amidst exotic woody aromas that celebrate the magic and timelessness of the forest. Perfectly packaged in an earthy green casing, the Forest Black flavour is a tribute to the treasures the earth has to offer and its astounding tastes.
Also made to be used along with the Nespresso Original and Vertuo Next machines, the Forest Fruit coffee is presented in a floral festive red box. Forest Fruit Flavour celebrates a delightful explosion of colour with a coffee whose flavour recalls the forest floor – teeming with bushes dappled with ripe berries, ready for the picking. This festive flavoured coffee brings those same juicy berry aromas in a smooth cereal-noted base blend of Latin American and African Arabicas.
Forest Almond Flavour is the forager’s delight of the season. With the sweet, nutty flavour tucked into this espresso’s South American Arabicas, get ready to uncover almond notes marked by vanilla and a light fruitiness in this coffees’ smooth cereal character.
