As part of its new World Explorations range, Nespresso has launched Cape Town Envivo Lungo – one of six city-inspired coffees that allow coffee lovers to travel the globe through what’s in their cup.
The Cape Town Envivo Lungo is bold and full of character. “Cape Town Envivo Lungo perfectly reflects South Africa’s coffee tradition. Not only does its taste profile and intensity express the richness of Cape Town, its culture and lifestyle, but it also mirrors its coffee heritage and how South Africans tend to enjoy their coffee – a blend of Arabica and Robusta, enjoyed long and with milk, ” says Yassir Corpataux, Coffee Ambassador Nespresso MEA.
For the eye-catching packaging designs, Nespresso South Africa has collaborated with multidisciplinary afrocentric artist, Baba Tjeko, whose bespoke artwork series will be featured throughout the launch of Nespresso World Explorations. Through his colourful geometric forms, Baba Tjeko tells a story of cultural traditions while highlighting Cape Town and its essence.
