Daniel Clifford and Nespresso launch Michelin-starred coffee experience

Daniel Clifford and Nespresso launch Michelin-starred coffee experience

Nespresso has teamed up with chef Daniel Clifford to create a coffee experience that offers diners at two-Michelin-starred Midsummer House the same theatre at the end of a meal as they have had throughout it.

"We put all this effort into the canapés, amuses-bouches and wine service, and do everything we physically can to give customers an experience," said Clifford. "Then we get to the coffee, the very last thing people will remember, we make nice petits fours, and it's just, ‘would you like a cappuccino, latte or espresso?'."

The 18-month project, in which Clifford visited a Nespresso coffee plantation in Colombia, resulted in the creation of the YourNespressoYourTaste multi-sensory experience.

"We've managed to create something we're very proud of," said Clifford. "Coffee from Colombia to Nepal to Brazil tastes different. We've tried to give it the respect it deserves."

Nespresso is in discussions with at least three other Michelin-starred restaurants about offering YourNespressoYourTaste from this summer.

"We are proud to have created an experience which is not only a delight for the senses, but also an authentically personalised moment for each coffee consumer," said Guillaume Chesneau, managing director, Nespresso UK and Ireland.
