Be your Own Barista – Celebrating Saudi Year of Coffee with Nespresso

Who doesn’t love Coffee, especially if you can craft your favorite pairings right in the comfort of your home? 


More than 30 years ago, the Nespresso narrative began with a straightforward concept: make it possible for anybody to brew the ideal cup of espresso coffee, just like a trained barista. Since its founding in 1986, Nespresso has reinvented, revolutionized, and influenced how millions of people enjoy their coffee with their line of machines that deliver ease and convenience without compromising taste and flavor. 

With a redesigned brewing technology, Vertuo Next takes the Nespresso coffee experience one step further. The machine can read the barcode embedded in each capsule thanks to centrifugation technology. It then spins up to retrieve the cup’s hidden contents.

Some of Saudi Arabia’s long-standing customs strongly revolve around coffee. It is considered a significant part of Saudi culture, closely linked to the Saudi values of hospitality, music, and poetry.

The importance of coffee in the story of the nation has not gone unnoticed, with 2022 being designated as the “Year of Saudi Coffee” in recognition of the importance of this national cultural icon. Some historians believe coffee was already introduced to the Arabian peninsula circa 675 AD by Ethiopian travelers, who used to chew the coffee cherries as they traveled through the region. The word “coffee” originates from its Arabic word, qahwah.
