The art of espresso by Nespresso
More than 20 years ago, Nespresso developed and patented a system for mastering the preparation of espresso, from the selection of the finest green coffee beans through to the moment of tasting. The optimum espresso is a complex alchemy between coffee of exceptional quality and freshness, and water at high pressure. It is these elements which give the coffee body and intensity, and reveal all the subtleties of the aroma. Coffee, machine and the club are the inseparable components of the exclusive Nespresso experience, which allows you to prepare espresso, cup after cup, time after time, in the comfort of your own home.
All Nespresso machines are equipped with a patented extraction system that guarantees up to 19 bar pressure.
Each element - water pressure, temperature and extraction duration - has been calculated with great precision. This ensures the aromas from each Grand Cru coffee are expressed, giving the coffee body and creating an exceptionally thick and smooth crema.
The Krups Citiz and Milk Titanium allows automatic and programmable water sizing for espresso and long black coffee, and has an energy saving mode. The fitted Aerocinno can be used for both hot and cold coffee, perfect for cappuccino and latte. Its retro-modern design in titanium makes it a stylish addition to any kitchen.
The hermetically-sealed aluminium capsules provide the optimum conditions to preserve and prevent oxidation of the 900 extremely volatile and sensitive aromas found in freshly-ground coffee. Simple in appearance, the capsule is the subject of continual technical improvement to optimise the machine’s extraction of the coffee.
Nespresso offers numerous Grand Cru coffee varieties, some of the finest in the world. Products of Nespresso Coffee Experts’ experience and inspiration, they come from diverse origins and offer a variety of aromas.
To achieve quality espresso, Nespresso Coffee Experts travel the world searching for only the finest green coffee beans, which offer the most exciting aromatic profiles. Nespresso then creates a blend from each of the varieties of beans, and develops a specific roasting and grinding profile.
