’Tis the season to spoil — and there’s no better way to spoil a coffee lover than with one of the sleek and smart coffee machines in the recently launched Nespresso Vertuo Next range.

Like Nespresso’s pioneering Original Line coffee machines, the Vertuo Next range works with convenient coffee capsules; there are more than 30 different blends and single origins to choose from.

What sets this next generation of electronic baristas apart is that these capsules come in five different cup sizes: espresso (40ml), double espresso (80ml), gran lungo (150ml), mug (230ml) and carafe (535ml).

Best of all, you can brew your favourite drink at the touch of a single button. Courtesy of Centrifusion technology, the Vertuo Next automatically works out which size capsule you’ve popped in and will add the right amount of water accordingly.

If the coffee lover in your life is lucky enough to already have a Vertuo Next, spoil them with Nespresso accessories such as a stylish travel mug or capsule dispenser.

And, if they have a Nespresso Original, treat them to the trio of capsules in the new limited edition Gifts of the Forest collection:

  • Forest Black is a blend of shade-grown coffees from Colombia and beyond; this spicy espresso features exotic woody notes.
  • Juicy berry aromas run through Forest Fruit Flavour, a flavoured espresso with a base blend of South American Arabicas. It’s perfect for cappuccino fans, as frothed milk enhances its sweet pastry notes.
  • Starring a blend of South American Arabicas, Forest Almond Flavour is a floured espresso brimming with almond aromas, sweet nuttiness, vanilla and a light fruitiness.

With gorgeous packaging created by Columbian fashion designer Johanna Ortiz, the Gifts of the Forest collection was inspired by the brand’s strong commitment to sustainability. In addition to its agroforestry projects, Nespresso has partnered with Conservation International this festive season to protect 10-million trees.

The three models in the Vertuo Next range — the Vertuo Next, Vertuo Next Premium and Vertuo Next Deluxe — are available on za.buynespresso.com and in Nespresso boutiques nationwide along with the limited edition Gifts of the Forest collection.
