India Mahdavi is known to have created some of the world’s most iconic modern spaces including The Gallery at Sketch in London, Jean François Piège in Paris and APT in New York, her work is now synonymous with elegant design imbued with rich colour palettes. She also has gone to design some of Nespresso's packaging of the Variations range along with selected boutique display windows -- so it's about time she came up with her very own capsule collection.
The limited edition festive collection centres on the traditional flavours of Parisian patisseries including macarons, and praline. Treating each creation as though it is a couture piece, Mahdavi’s influence on the Nespresso Variations is evident in the range’s pastel hues and playful designs. With two unique flavoured coffees, this year's limited edition Variations bring the quintessentially French flavours to coffee lovers around the world, transporting them to a Parisian Patisserie.
There are 2 flavoured coffee Variations and one iconic black to try, each with an India Mahdavi designed aluminium capsule. Each of the Variations have been based on the Nespresso Livanto coffee blend which consists of Pure Arabica from Southern and Central America. It is well balanced with a roasted caramelised note providing roundness and balance in the finished coffees:
Nespresso Variations Praline
This flavoured espresso pairs the roundness of Livanto’s base with a delicate roasted hazelnut flavour, enhanced by a touch of caramel sweetness. A harmonious blend reminiscent of a praliné dessert.
