new nespresso by kitchenaid® machine delivers exceptional coffee

TORONTO (October 1, 2014) – Two iconic brands with a legacy of exacting standards
have partnered to introduce a new espresso maker that coffee lovers are sure to
welcome, both for its performance and aesthetics. Scheduled for availability this fall, the
new Nespresso by KitchenAid® machine is designed to brew premium, portioned
Nespresso Grand Cru coffee capsules appreciated by coffee aficionados around the
“Our new espresso maker delivers the best of both worlds,” notes Dave Elliott, general
manager for KitchenAid small appliances. “It combines the KitchenAid brand’s superior
performance and timeless design with Nespresso’s expertise in sourcing the highest
quality coffees and delivering an exceptional cup of coffee, time and again.”
“Having pioneered the portioned coffee market more than 25 years ago, we value
partners like KitchenAid who incorporate new elements and esthetics into the Nespresso
family, providing unique ways for coffee lovers to experience our coffee,” Jean-Marc
Duvoisin, CEO of Nestlé Nespresso SA. “KitchenAid shares our unwavering commitment
to design and unmatched quality, and we are thrilled to partner with them to offer a
beautiful, iconic system producing the highest quality coffee available.”
A simple loading system features an elegant, manual lever designed for use with
Nespresso capsules. Featuring 22 Grand Cru coffees sourced from the top 1 - 2% of the
world’s finest coffee beans from various regions of the world, these capsules offer the
highest quality beans with distinct flavor profiles. A powerful 19-bar pressure pump
ensures maximum flavor extraction from the coffee and the presence of a rich, delicious
layer of crema, the essential characteristic of a high quality, authentic cup of espresso. A
stainless-steel heating element guarantees precise temperature control, and a removable
1.4 liter water tank is easy to fill with fresh, filtered water and easy to keep clean.
The new Nespresso by KitchenAid machine can be set to brew ristretto, espresso and
lungo coffees. With up to six cup calibrations and an easy-to-read LED indicator, the
machine offers a range of volume and strength options to suit a variety of preferences.
With a fast heat up time of 25 seconds, those with limited time won’t have to wait long for
their preferred coffee to brew. The used capsule container can hold up to 14 Grand Cru
capsules, reducing frequent trips to the trash bin for emptying.
Featuring aluminum and zinc die-cast elements, the new Nespresso by KitchenAid®
machine will be available in Candy Apple Red, Empire Red, and Onyx Black.
Since the introduction of its legendary stand mixer in 1919 and first dishwasher in 1949,
KitchenAid has built on the legacy of these icons to create a complete line of products
designed for cooks. Today, the KitchenAid brand offers virtually every essential for the
well-equipped kitchen with a collection that includes everything from countertop
appliances to cookware, ranges to refrigerators, and whisks to wine cellars. Cook for the
Cure®, the brand's partnership with Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation®, is now in its
12th year and has raised over $3.5 million to help find a cure for breast cancer.
