I am so thrilled to be writing this post as I am happy to announce that I am in partnership* with Nespresso to bring you all the details of Liverpool’s latest boutique!
Last week I had the utmost pleasure to be one of the first people in Liverpool to have a sneak peek of the sparkling new boutique concept Nespresso has launched, located at Peter’s Lane in the heart of Liverpool One. It was a real treat to speak to the insiders who brought with them a lot of knowledge – they really educated me on the brand history and values as well as happily explaining each and every detail that you might never have known. For example, did you know that the boutique’s decor has been created using sustainably-designed materials which includes the beautiful table tops made of (get this) used coffee grounds from Nespresso’s very own factory in Switzerland? And the wood has been 100% sourced from Nespresso’s reforestation programs on coffee farms. How lovely is that! I even got to taste some of the most delicious culinary delights from The Arts School, some of which were infused with Nespresso coffee. There was nothing but positive vibes from everyone in the event and the strong, genuine enthusiasm for the brand was infectious.
The boutique is truly something else, described as ‘an immersive coffee experience allowing for deeper learning and coffee exploration’. There is a lovely warm feeling that you get when you do step into the room and a clearly well thought out path for you to see the newest machines and products on offer, as well as the delightful pops of green from the plants and you know how bloggers feel about plants – yep extra brownie points right there. If you do happen to wander down Peter’s Lane I am sure the window display and the luxe feel of the boutique will draw you in.
One of my favourite features of this boutique is their Atelier table, I loved the relaxed feel of this part of the boutique and how it makes you at ease as well – almost as if you were in a friend’s really luxe kitchen in Switzerland. During the event, we had a coffee masterclass given to us by their Coffee Specialist, we all got to sample and learn more about the new limited edition flavours from the ‘Explorations 2’ range; one being the ‘Ethiopia Yirgacheffe’ & the other ‘Columbia Aguadas’, we were taught how to heighten the different coffee notes and to see if we can pick out the aromas. Now normally I am a latte with extra milk kind of gal when it comes to coffee preference, but thanks to this Coffee Masterclass I have found a new love for what an excellent, high quality cup of coffee (with no milk ladies and gentlemen) should taste like. My favourite was the ‘Columbia Aguadas’ – the sweet notes and candied fruity taste was pretty spectacular. Of course, they also do splendid coffee with milk too!
If you would like to experience this yourself make sure to pop in to the new boutique where you too can not only deepen your coffee knowledge but also enjoy a premium Nespresso coffee. Whether you are a coffee connoisseur or just enjoy a good cuppa in the morning make sure you visit the boutique!
How do you like your coffee? With milk or without?
