"Nespresso" introduces new Vertuo coffee system in large sizes for coffee lovers

Nespresso, the world pioneer of portioned coffee, has today introduced the revolutionary Vertuocoffee system to the Middle East at a touch of a button and with registered trademark half spherical capsules


At Nespresso's 2019 premier evening, inspiration and innovation were brought together in the presence of various media, social media and coffee lovers, and with the participation of a selection of young people, who have made unprecedented successes in various areas of science, technology, lifestyle, health and beauty.


Nespresso ensures interest in the everyday life aspects of the Saudi society, always keen to spread the culture of hospitality in Saudi Arabia and the world. The "Inspiration & Innovation" Initiative has come to highlight the siginificant and vital role played by inspiring youth in achieving the homeland's growth and development and the objectives of Vision 2030 for a vibrant and creative homeland. During the event, they provided an overview of their career, successes and the obstacles in their way, stressing that their goals, open-ended ambition, challenges and determination are the real success.


Mr. Raafat Al-Azzeh, CEO of Al Soukya International Company for Marketing of Coffee Equipment, exclusive agent of Nespresso Saudi Arabia, said: "With the introduction of Vertuo in Saudi Arabia, we are expanding in providing home-made coffee options to coffee lovers who prefer to drink in larger sizes with the same quality that Nespresso is known for. We seek to provide all the solutions required by coffee lovers in the Kingdom with all their different taste and detail. Thus, Vertuo system will meet the needs of coffee lovers in large cups whether in the morning, on the road or in any moment of their day."


The Vertuo system revolutionises the way coffee is made by introducing Centrifusion™,  the unique rotational extraction technology, and a new range of capsule sizes that together allow for different coffee styles from espresso to a large cup.   


At the touch of a button, the intelligent system automatically recognises the coffee capsule  through barcode reading and adjusts extraction parameters to create the perfect full-bodied coffee, finished with a silky and generous crema.


Vertuo also brings three different sized capsules, creating a range of five coffee cup sizes. Each of the 28 Vertuo coffees is carefully blended and roasted to deliver a quality coffee experience, whatever the occasion. The largest size, Alto (414ml) offers a delicate aromatic taste to be enjoyed in a longer cup size, complementing well-balanced body and bouquet of gentle aromas of the Mug size (230mL). The Gran Lungos (150ml) offers the prolonged pleasure of an espresso, with a more subtle aftertaste and the Double Espresso (80 ml) and Espresso blends (40ml) have an intense flavour profile. 5 serving sizes – Alto (414ml), Mug (230ml), Gran Lungo (150ml), Double Espresso (80ml) and Espresso (40ml).
