Coffee connoisseurs in need of a boost this Monday need look no further than the new Cafe Nespresso, which opened its doors today on Cheapside in the City of London.
At the first UK cafe pilot, following a successful trial last year in Vienna, fans can be treated to non-alcoholic coffee mocktails including rose cappucino, a macaroon latte, an iced macchiato or a mojito coffee, as well as an array of gourmet coffee recipes.
Nespresso Maestros will provide expert advice to customers on their coffee options, the origin of their blend and even the perfect food accompaniment.
"London has a thriving coffee culture but Cafe Nespresso is a unique premium cafe experience," Francisco Nogueira, managing director of Nespresso UK & Ireland, said.
"The UK is fast becoming a nation of coffee experts and as we grab our morning latte we want to know it it personalised to our taste. Cafe Nespresso will offer 11 distinct blends of coffee, which we source from among the top two per cent of quality coffee grown worldwide.
"Our maestros will guide customers to find their perfect drink from a large array of recipes and combinations, creating an entertaining experience for all."
The cafe, located at 100 Cheapside, is part of a joint venture with premium food caterer DO&CO.
