A journey through the sensesNespresso has transformed espresso drinking into an epicurean pleasure, a true moment of indulgence. In its ongoing quest for perfection, Nespresso constantly develops new accessories to further enhance the coffee tasting experience. Riedel – a 300-year old family company known for its varietal-specific crystal glassware – was the first in history to recognize that wine taste is shaped by the form of the glass, and has since become the brand of choice for educated consumers, globally. Together, Nespresso & Riedel have crafted 2 exclusive Espresso tasting glasses, magnifying the elusive aromas and complexity of the Espresso Grands Crus, transforming tasting into a moment of absolute perfection.
As with wine, the character of a coffee is shaped by its terroir, the bean variety and the care and expertise applied to its processing. But the expression of this nature is channeled by the vessel it is served in. Shape becomes a tool for conveying a Grand Cru’s perfume to the connoisseur’s senses.
Carve out the time in your day for the ritual of harmony, where beauty and taste together create a moment of poetry. The ritual of coffee invites you to first see, then smell and lastly taste your coffee. The crystal glass’ transparency fulfills your eyes; the aromas are directed onto your palate to satiate your nose and your ears awaken to the resonance of this lasting, quality material.
The perfect tasting glass is a masterpiece of proportion, guiding the liquid onto your palate at just the right angle for all the varied flavor components to express in full elegance. Taking the symmetry and proportioning of both, Nespresso and Riedel invite you to elevate your coffee tasting experience, for uncompromising moments of indulgence.
