Nespresso, the global pioneer and reference in premium portioned coffee, is proud to continue its partnership with the Michelin Guide Dubai 2023 as the Official Coffee Partner. Nespresso reinforces its commitment to quality, consistency, and taste innovation as it collaborates with the world’s most prestigious gastronomy guide for the second year in a row.
A highly anticipated culinary event showcasing the best of Dubai’s gastronomy, the Michelin Guide Dubai 2023 took place on Tuesday, May 23rd at the newly opened Atlantis The Royal. Nespresso is excited to continue building on its existing partnership with the Michelin Guide UAE, supporting the discovery and amplification of the local culinary scene.
Since the partnership’s inception at the inaugural edition of the Michelin Guide Dubai award ceremony on June 21st, 2022, followed by the guide’s launch in Abu Dhabi on September 7th, Nespresso has strengthened its collaboration with the Michelin Guide in the UAE, a continuation of Nespresso’s long-standing relationship as Official Coffee Partner in multiple destinations around the world, including Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Korea, Japan, and Thailand.
Both Nespresso and the Michelin Guide share a passion for excellence and a philosophy of delivering truly memorable and enjoyable experiences, insisting on extraordinary craftsmanship throughout. As the Official Coffee Partner for Michelin Dubai 2023, Nespresso will provide a premium coffee experience that complements the high standards of Michelin-rated cuisine, offering attendees a unique coffee experience that elevates the taste and aroma of their culinary journey.
Commenting on the partnership, Francisco Nogueira, Business Executive Officer – Nespresso Middle East and Africa, said: “At Nespresso, we believe that coffee is an integral part of any dining experience – it is typically the last thing customers taste before they leave a restaurant, which means the choice of coffee, how it is served and the memory it creates all contribute to a remarkable fine dining experience.”
“We know chefs are looking for a high-quality coffee experience for their guests and we believe they should be able to find flavor, authenticity, and sustainable credentials in their coffee choices with Nespresso. We are proud to be a part of Michelin Dubai 2023, and we look forward to providing customers with the perfect cup of coffee that reflects the quality of the food they are enjoying,” Mr. Nogueira added.
To mark the special occasion, Nespresso served two new coffees during the Michelin Guide Dubai award ceremony from the brand’s Exclusive Selection line, which will be launching in the UAE in the near future. Sourced from unexplored terroirs from across the world, Nespresso’s Exclusive Selection coffees offer a memorable tasting experience and unique story-telling opportunity, making it the perfect fit for the high expectations in the world of high gastronomy.
Found in the Himalayan foothills of Nepal, Nespresso’s Exclusive Selection NEPAL LAMJUNG is a rare, hand-picked Arabica coffee with a rich, intense and velvety texture. Hand-harvested by a group of approximately 3000 smallholder farmers, Nespresso split roasts this unique blend to bring out the coffee’s full complexity and smooth and robust flavor.
The Exclusive Selection GALAPAGOS is a full-bodied espresso coffee blend, featuring sweet notes of roasted cereal with a subtle hint of bitter cocoa. 1,000 miles from the Ecuadorian coast out in the Pacific Ocean, the Galapagos Islands offer the ideal coffee-growing conditions with volcanic soils and a cooler climate created by wet ocean winds. The result of an unusual growing environment and nurtured by phenomenal biodiversity, the Exclusive Selection GALAPAGOS coffee blend is one of the rarest Arabicas in the world.
In addition to a shared passion for excellence, both Nespresso and the Michelin Guide have a long-standing commitment to sustainability. With a strong awareness of its responsibility to protect the future of coffee and the communities that depend on it, Nespresso prioritizes sustainability in its operations. The company’s AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program is a comprehensive approach to sustainable coffee sourcing and production that has been in place since 2003.
Nespresso plays a key role in reducing residual materials by implementing innovative recycling solutions, encouraging consumers to drop off their used aluminum capsules at Nespresso Boutiques in partnership with the recycling Be’eah Group. Nespresso is dedicated to making a positive difference for farmers, business partners, consumers, and the planet.
A landmark culinary event, featuring some of the world’s most renowned chefs and restaurants, Nespresso is proud to be a part of Michelin’s celebration of gastronomy and to provide attendees with an exceptional coffee experience.
