If Cape Town was a coffee, what would it taste like? With the new Nespresso World Explorations range, you have the opportunity to enjoy Cape Town in a cup.
In a special tribute to South Africa, the world leader in portioned coffee has quite literally encapsulated the essence of the Mother City in its Cape Town Envivo Lungo.
Cape Town features alongside five other cities in the collection. Coffee lovers can travel the globe from the comfort of their home, experiencing in-cup worldly tastes.
Inspired by the diversity of local coffee cultures, Nespresso set out to discover worldwide coffee preferences and rituals. The result is World Explorations, a range of Lungo coffees that captures the sensations, the soul, and the coffee tastes of some of the world’s most admired cities, which you can enjoy from home at the touch of a button. The capsules in the range are made using 80% recycled aluminium um as part of Nespresso’s ongoing efforts and commitment to its sustainability and circularity objectives.
Just like the city it’s named after, the Cape Town Envivo Lungo is bold and full of character. “Cape Town Envivo Lungo perfectly reflects South Africa’s coffee tradition. The taste profile expresses the richness of Cape Town. Embodying its culture and lifestyle, mirroring its coffee heritage. Expressing how South Africans tend to enjoy their coffee – a blend of Arabica and Robusta, enjoyed long and with milk,” says Yassir Corpataux, Coffee Ambassador Nespresso MEA.
In the spirit of local flavour, Nespresso South Africa has collaborated with multidisciplinary Afrocentric artist Baba Tjeko.
The Nespresso World Explorations launch will feature his bespoke artwork series. Baba Tjeko tells a story of cultural traditions through his colourful geometric forms while highlighting Cape Town and its essence.
Beyond Cape Town, the range celebrates traditional worldwide coffee moments, inviting consumers on a journey that will enhance their tastes and enrich their coffee knowledge. From the Viennese coffee house culture to Argentina’s Merienda coffee break, take your senses on a trip around the world without leaving home.
