A few weeks ago, I was invited to the launch of Nespresso U, their latest machine innovation. The idea of Nespresso U, is all about you and your personal taste. Incorporating with this concept, the event had 4 hosts including, Chef Alessandro Pavoni, Photographer Justin Ridler, Mixologist Mike Enright and Designer Darren Palmer. We entered each of the host's different zones to enjoy a custom experience designed around our own individual tastes and desires. First I started at the bar, trying a selection of the extensive list of cocktails, then I went to design with props, a kitchen top around the Nespresso U. After that, I went and tasted some interesting risotto with an array of spices, then a picture with Justin Ridler who just walked off the film-set of The Great Gatsby. It was great to have these experiences, enabling guests to embrace the whole lifestyle of the brand.
The Nespresso U being priced just at $299 it makes it an affordable investment if you are a coffee drinker (like me)! It only takes about 25 seconds to start up and automatically turns off if in active after a while, making it fast, efficient and energy saving.
There was also a competition for the best kitchen table top design and I was also lucky enough to be chosen as the winner, winning a Nespresso U! I can't wait to use it. Thanks!
