Nespresso Cafe Gourmand

What is Cafe Gourmand?

What is a
Café Gourmand?

Originating in France, a Café Gourmand is where
the sweet notes of mignardises (bite-size confections)
are paired with the aromatic flavour profiles of
Nespresso’s coffees to create edible harmony,
finishing the meal in a sweet, but light manor.

Nespresso &
Café Gourmand Winner?

With training on coffee pairings, we work with the school’s next
generation of top professional pastry students introducing
them to a Café Gourmand using Nespresso’s coffee.
The Competition itself is a platform to challenge and
explore unique pairings that elevate that crema-filled
experience within the café.

How is Cafe Gourmand?

What is Cafe Gourmand?

One Competition.
One Crescendo.

Nespresso pairs with the best culinary schools in Canada,
Institut de Tourisme et d’Hôtellerie du Québec, Montréal
and George Brown College, Toronto. In each school,
8 participants will compete for a scholarship and $10,000
in prizes, while only 1 of each school will make it to the finals.
Café Gourmand is evaluated by a panel of Chefs for the
chance at having their creation on the dessert menu of
Nespresso’s fine dining partners.
