The Perfect Marriage: KitchenAid and Nespresso
Not all coffee lovers are created equal. Just stand in line at a cafe and you will hear a dazzling variety of custom coffee orders. Like Sally in the classic film When Harry Met Sally, you just want it the way you want it. We get it.
Single-serving coffee pod brewers let coffee lovers make a cup of their favorite beverage at home, without having to wait in that line. But again, not all such brewers are created equal. KitchenAid® and Nespresso, two iconic brands with a legacy of exacting standards, have joined forces to bring you a home-brewing, custom-coffee experience like no other, combining performance and aesthetics in one beautiful package.
“Our new espresso maker delivers the best of both worlds,” notes Dave Elliott, general manager for KitchenAid® small appliances. “It combines the KitchenAid® brand’s superior performance and timeless design with Nespresso’s expertise in sourcing the highest quality coffees and delivering an exceptional cup of coffee, time and again.”
The Nespresso by KitchenAid® machine has a simple loading system featuring an elegant, manual lever designed for use with Nespresso Grand Cru capsules. A powerful 19-bar pressure pump ensures maximum flavor extraction from the coffee and the presence of a rich, delicious layer of crema, the essential characteristic of a high-quality, authentic cup of espresso. The machine can be set to brew ristretto, espresso and lungo coffees. Sourced from the world’s finest coffees, the Nespresso capsules (there are 22 to choose from) offer the highest quality beans with distinct flavor profiles.
Add gorgeous, sturdy KitchenAid® design to the mix, and what’s not to love? Featuring aluminum and zinc die-cast elements, the new Nespresso by KitchenAid® machine comes in Candy Apple Red, Empire Red, and Onyx Black. It is available at Home Outfitters, Hudson’s Bay, Independent Gourmets and Nespresso Boutiques across Canada.
