Celebrate the Joy of Gathering and the Art of the Everyday with Nespresso

The architects of taste and pleasure come together for a holiday season collection of coffees, confections, and more

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 and confections 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 in flavor, 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, discover, and delight in surprises: from the visceral pleasures of tasting a new coffee or pastry to the combined laughter between friends, fuller stories are written with the Nespresso Pierre Hermé coffees and confections that bring the art of the haute pâtisserie into the every day, 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 flavors. 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 are 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 flavors while rejoicing in the ease of use, all in the comfort of one’s own home.

The collaboration consists of delightful coffees, confections, and gifting with Nespresso rounding out the festive season’s offerings by adding limited-edition coffee machines and accessories to bring Nespresso quality into all areas of one’s day.

Leading with a black single-origin coffee from Colombia, the Infiniment Espresso, is sourced from the new supplying region of Tolima, where farmers mostly use natural methods and prioritize low-impact agriculture, benefiting the land and its inhabitants. The Arabica beans in the Infiniment Double Espresso bloom with vibrant red fruit and smooth cereal notes, expressing an impressive depth of flavor and an elegant mouthfeel.

The espresso offerings also include two flavored coffees: the Infiniment Gourmand Saveur Noisette, crafted from delicately sweet South American Arabica beans, begins with the unmistakable aroma of roasted hazelnuts flavor 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 flavor of raspberries. Both of these inspire a premium pastry experience by declaring the same complex flavors one associate with Pierre Hermé’s elevated pastries.

The Café Noble Scented Candle was imagined in collaboration with master French perfumer Olivia Giacobetti and Pierre Hermé for a longer-lasting immersion into the festive spirit. The soft, cozy scent is inspired by the Colombian tradition of adding panela, a golden-brown raw sugar that is as sweet as honey to coffee for an indulgent confection. With all of the complexities and nuances of coffee, the candle boasts notes of cinnamon, vanilla, spice, and a robust Arabica bean, and is housed in a reusable porcelain vessel.

Rounding out the festive collection are this season’s Advent Calendar, 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 afterward.

Outside of the co-created collection, Nespresso is also offering a limited-edition CitiZ machine in Magic Blue which can be used to create the Nespresso Pierre Hermé signature coffee recipes. Crowning the collection is the Nomad Travel Mug in a Raspberry color, giving the ability to take the flavors from the artistry of haute pastry anywhere, anytime.

Nespresso’s sophistication meets its match in Pierre Hermé, the architect of taste, with coffee as the connector—a multisensory gourmand treat to delight everyone’s palate and weave connections among generations.

The enchantment of indulgence, the gift of conviviality: the Nespresso Pierre Hermé collection is available for a limited time in Nespresso Power Plant Mall, Podium Mall, Robinsons Magnolia, Greenbelt 5, One Bonifacio High Street Mall, SM Aura, Shangri-La Plaza, Trinoma Mall, Alabang Town Center, SM Mall of Asia, Ayala Center Cebu, and at
