We can’t start a day without a cup of coffee and one of the easiest and most convenient ways to perk up the morning is with Nespresso.
It’s a complete coffee shop experience that you can have at home: they have a wide range of coffee varieties, with a diverse selection of flavor and aroma profiles and intensities. Simply pop a capsule in one of their machines and you’re good to go. You can even jazz up your drink with recipes you can find on the Nespresso website. For us, we’re happy adding it to oat milk for a creamy drink with enough kick to help us meet deadlines.
One of the things we love about the Nespresso experience is that we can go to one of their boutiques to see all the coffee variants and ask questions and for recommendations. Nespresso recently opened its newest store at One Bonifacio High Street mall and it’s an immersive and beautiful space.
A new immersive boutique awaits
The first thing you notice when you enter the new Nespresso boutique is that it’s a beautiful space. There’s a wall featuring seagrass, which has a long and diverse history of use in the Philippines. It is commonly used as compost, upholstery, insulation, and even provides food and habitat for various marine animals.
The boutique’s seagrass wall art is proudly made by ‘Rolyolikha at iba pa Handicrafts’ – a social enterprise that creates a sustainable, feasible, and viable livelihood for communities. Their beautiful creations are made from sustainable materials and ethical practices. There’s also a greenery wall that symbolizes the local coffee plantations where the beans are sustainably sourced.
Another cool design feature is the window-to-farm feature that gives a virtual view of coffee farms. This aims to bring customers closer to the natural origin of the coffee.
The star of the show
Of course, the highlight of a visit to a Nespresso boutique is its coffee. The Atelier table is where the coffee specialist takes you through all of Nespresso’s offerings. They can answer all Nespresso-related questions, explain the specifics of the brand’s selections, and provide recommendations to help you find the perfect coffee that suits your unique palate.
While you’re there, you can also upgrade your coffee nook and shop for accessories like cups, glasses, capsule dispensers, spoons, and more. You can build your own coffee shop at home!
Sustainable steps towards a brighter tomorrow
What makes drinking Nespresso satisfying is that the brand is committed to sustainable business practices. Its boutiques accept used Nespresso aluminum capsules, which are later repurposed into common household items. There is a recycling corner at the Nespresso boutique in BGC so you can drop off your used capsules when you buy more.
A new element that Nespresso fans look forward to at the new boutique is the AAA dashboard, a new feature that creatively shows the company’s sustainability program all over the world.
Immerse yourself in a world of good coffee, art, culture, and sustainability when you visit Nespresso One Bonifacio High Street Boutique. It’s located at the Lower Ground, One Bonifacio High Street Mall, and is open from 11 AM to 9 PM.
