Rare coffees and where to get one

Nespresso has introduced two rare coffees, exclusive to a handful of Australia’s leading chefs and restaurants – and only three places in Sydney.

The two new coffees, which can be found at Sydney’s Tetsuya’s, Ormeggio at the Spit and No.1 Bent Street, come from very different but equally remote origins. The Kilimanjaro Peaberry is grown on the steep and fertile slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, while Népal Lamjung is cultivated in small plantations located in the Himalayan foothills of Nepal, home to one of the world’s rarest beans.

Each coffee has a unique flavour profile. Kilimanjaro Peaberry is the lighter of the two, possessing a full bodied and incredibly fruity character, with notes of exotic fruits. In contrast, Nepal Lamjung is a rich, intense coffee with a soft, velvety texture and notes of fresh toast.

Nespresso has a long history of working with some of the world’s leading chefs, and this latest launch is another step in enhancing the coffee experience they deliver to their guests and maintaining its consistency.

“Coffee is typically the last thing guests will taste before they leave a restaurant and so it lingers in their memory. For us, choosing the right coffee is as important as choosing the right wine,” said chef Tetsuya Wakuda.
