The Nespresso launch at the newly opened Emporium Melbourne was a delectable soiree. Salted caramel espresso martinis and champagne flutes greeted us on arrival, as did incredible canapés from renowned French-born Sydney based chef, Guillaume Brahimi. Delicate smoked salmon with caviar, seared Wagyu beef slices with horseradish, surprisingly delicious duck foie gras parfait sandwiched between ginger bread and tender seared scallops with sterling caviar were served to impressed guests.
This sleek new Nespresso boutique has the largest Coffee Room in Australia (otherwise known as Mecca for lovers of coffee), which allows for ample coffee sampling with 11 featured machines. With an extensive range of 22 Grand Cru coffees on offer, it looks like Melbourne’s caffeine aficionados will accept the challenge to explore, try and buy from the new Nespresso pod range.
X Factor winner and self-titled coffee lover, Dami Im performed an exclusive preview of her brand new track, whilst looking gorgeous in a sparkling blush chiffon gown, whilst DJ Lauren Mac played some sweet tunes for the jovial guests in front of a wall of colourful coffee pods.
It was a fabulous evening with gorgeous delicacies, great company and espressos a-plenty! What more could you ask for on an Autumn’s night in Melbourne?
