Coffee lovers in Singapore will be delighted to hear that Nespresso has just opened a new boutique — the third in the country since its setting-up in 2008 — at Raffles City Shopping Center. A new addition to the 450 boutiques spread worldwide, its Raffles City venue, opened November 2 and showcased the brand’s products, from machines to capsules. A recycling point has also been created that allows clients to drop off their used capsules.
To celebrate this opening, Nespresso will offer a new coffee recipe called Cococrema throughout the month of November. Created by Michael Callahan, an award-winning mixologist and founding bartender of 28 HongKong Street (named Best cocktail bar in Asia at Asia’s 50 Best Bars awards this year), the drink is a clever mix of condensed milk, sugar, coconut cream and honey making it “recognizably Singapore yet distinctly Nespresso.”
Concomitantly, Nestle’s premium coffee brand announced a significant reduction of the price of its 24 permanent Grand Cru coffees in Singapore, bringing them closer to prices in other markets. The new pricing applies in stores, online and on the Nespresso mobile app.
“The Nespresso promise has always been to deliver the ultimate coffee experience with the highest quality coffee that can be enjoyed every day conveniently” said Country Manager Matthieu Pougin. “As we continue to grow in Singapore and most recently with the opening of our new boutique at Raffles City, we are also happy to announce this new price to enable more coffee lovers and Club Members to fully benefit from our exclusive Club services in Singapore.”
