NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® Raises the Bar on Coffee Just in Time for the Holiday Season

Iconic Nestlé Brand Opens Pop-Up Cafes in Los Angeles to Unveil a New Coffee Experience and Product Line Designed to Elevate Your Morning

GLENDALE, CA--(Marketwired - November 15, 2016) - Inspired by evolving consumer preferences, NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® -- the award winning single serve coffee and espresso machine -- announced today new 12oz premium coffees and two new machines while kicking-off a traveling roadshow of pop-up cafes designed to bring a new kind of coffee experience to Los Angeles. The mall tour begins at the Beverly Center and will then travel to Los Cerritos Center in December. Additionally, the brand has re-launched an e-commerce website with an innovative, modern design. The site features new coffee flavors and machines that help elevate the everyday coffee experience.

Starting this week, visitors to the pop-up cafes will have an opportunity to enjoy a multi-sensorial coffee experience. Attendees will enjoy a full size cup of coffee by selecting from four new creative blends sourced from top coffee producing regions, receive a hands-on demonstration of the new machines and uncover their coffee personality by taking an exclusive BuzzFeed Quiz. A virtual reality experience that highlights the NESCAFÉ coffee story -- from responsibly sourced beans to a precise brewing process -- will also be present.

"For more than ten years, the NESCAFÉ Dolce Gusto brand has been growing steadily in Europe and Latin America markets and now we are excited to expand our U.S. presence by bringing an exclusive experience to Los Angeles shoppers this holiday season," says Berta Cruz Corominas, Marketing Director, NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto®. "As a brand that is committed to our consumers and elevating their coffee experience, the pop-up cafes are a natural way for us to share firsthand the expertise and history of NESCAFÉ coffee and showcase how easy it is for coffee drinkers to enjoy their ideal cup of coffee every morning."

Making its debut at the cafes this November and December, the Genio 2 and Esperta 2 machines are equipped with 15 bars of professional pressure that extract the most flavor, aroma and body from the coffee to deliver a high quality cup every time in less than one minute. With more than 20 hot and cold varieties -- from traditional coffee to bold espressos and frothy Cappuccinos -- machines allow users to create an ideal cup of coffee their way by controlling the size, strength and intensity.

Tour locations and dates this year include:

  • November 18 -- December 4: Beverly Center
  • December 9 -- 27: Los Cerritos Center
