Open This One First With Nespresso


The holidays are here! Time to feast with our friends, and treat them to a surprise. Hosts work so hard to entertain and plan the perfect dinner party – an early morning trip to the farmer’s market to grab the best produce, developing the menu, setting a beautiful table, and making sure guests have delicious hors d’oeuvres and beverages to enjoy when they arrive. And don’t forget dessert. You know dessert is the best part of a holiday feast, especially with a warm, rich cup of coffee to complement the evening.

For parties like this, I make sure to bring a gift for the host as a thank you for all their hard work. This holiday season, I’m giving the Nespresso VertuoLine Evoluo. It’s a special nod to all the care the host puts into making it a great gathering, and I make sure the host opens my gift first so everyone can enjoy Nespresso’s high quality coffee. It’s perfect for that moment when the host needs a little distraction-free pick-me-up to put the finishing touches on the meal! In addition, The Nespresso capsules couldn’t be easier, with a great recycling program to minimize waste in the kitchen and worldwide. Used capsules can be returned to a Nespresso Boutique or select kitchen retailers. Or, order a UPS prepaid bag and ship the capsules back to them. They separate the aluminum from the coffee grounds, and melt the aluminum to make new products. The coffee is then composted and distributed to landscapers and garden centers. I also love that Nespresso’s global coffee program maintains sustainability standards, creating a community of shared values from bean to cup. So let the coffee flow freely and enjoy time spent with your friends. Delicious coffee for a discerning palate and feel-good global business practices? You might get an extra slice of cake for that one.

The Nespresso VertuoLine array of coffees has something for everyone at the table, from Holiday Limited Edition flavors like Gingerbread, Pumpkin and Banana Bread to other coffee roasts. I love indulging in the Holiday Limited Edition flavors, especially here in California where flavors and old favorites signal the holiday season more than the weather does. It puts me in the mood to get that last-minute shopping done, especially when it’s as easy as visiting or their mobile app while I sip! Nespresso Boutiques in Northern and Southern California are also a great option for scooping up that perfect gift for your hard-working hosts and loved ones. They’ll appreciate your thoughtfulness and the gift of great coffee.
