The new Nespresso Stavanger store has arrived and Nespresso was kind enough to offer me a peek inside the new store during their grand opening party on April 11.
While the boutique opens officially today, last night’s party was a pre-opening viewing of the new store and included a live jazz ensemble, the Nespresso Stavanger ladies, a DJ, catered food from Spiseriet and of course a coffee tasting of the two 2013 limited edition flavors – Trieste and Napoli.
The new store is built within an old wooden building and as such, is the first and only of its kind in the world. Nespresso store salespersons go through a rigorous training program which includes learning about the nuances of coffee beans grown in different conditions all over the world and about the 400+ notes found in a single cuppa (a cup of coffee) as well as other facts about coffee culture across the globe.
The full line of Nespresso capsules and several machine models are sold in the new store along with accessories such as espresso cups, cup sets and capsule organizers. Also, for all of you (fellow) environmentalists out there – this Nespresso store has a recycling station for your used capsules.
