 and  announced Tuesday their collaboration to offer travelers gourmet coffee from the Nespresso by B/E Aerospace machine that was designed to brew on airplanes.

Travelers in Virgin Australia’s newly refurbished business class cabin on board the Airbus A 330 fleet will benefit from the machines, which are engineered for high-altitude brewing.

Flow time, volume and temperature are maximized under the new technology and the machines are capable of creating quality milk foam just like their on-land counterparts.

The machines have been tested in high altitude chambers, according to a press release, which says the results deliver fine coffee at 30,000 feet.
