Eva Caprille

Nespresso’s Commercial Manager for Australia, Eva Caprile talks to HM’s James Wells about the company’s plans for the accommodation sector.

What’s Nespresso’s strategy in the hotel accommodation or on-premise sector?
Nespresso’s commercial solutions are designed to meet the requirements of some of the world’s foremost hotels and restaurants. Nespresso is focused on providing the highest quality in cup experience for guests whether at a conference, breakfast, in-room or when dining in the establishment’s restaurant or bar.
Nespresso has agreements with international luxury chains such as Hilton Worldwide, Shangri-La, The Park Hyatt and Sofitel and with local boutiques and world-class resorts such as QT Hotels and Qualia.

Tell us about the use for Ristretto Intenso in this sector or the on premise sector.
The new Ristretto Intenso gives hotel and restaurants the option to serve a full-bodied Grand Cru, with an intensity of 12. This new Grand Cru, a permanent addition to the range, will be especially relevant for all occasions guests are looking for a more intense coffee – i.e. breakfast, during conference or post meal.
The Nespresso Professional coffee range now comprises nine different Grands Crus across four families of Ristretto, Lungo, Espresso and Decaffeinated coffees, catering to every taste and preference.

Do you have any messages for the owners or operators from Nespresso to the hotel accommodation or on-premise sector?
It is the quest of the world’s leading hotel chains to provide the perfect hotel experience to every individual. Getting this experience right day in and out is no small feat, with consistency being one of the greatest challenges. Exceeding every aspect of the guest’s expectations is a daily challenge in achieving perfection of service. Small aspects of a hotel stay, like the coffee consumed, can be the detail that guests remember.
Nespresso can take the challenge of at least one aspect of a presitgious hotel’s perfect service. With Nespresso the coffee experiences are guaranteed to be of the highest quality, the machines are designed to be problem-free and most importantly to deliver truly incredible coffee.

What are the best machines Nespresso recommends in the hotel accommodation or on-premise sector?

Nespresso professional machines are specifically designed for intensive, high volume usage and are adaptable to all space and venue configurations for quick and simple preparation of the highest quality coffees.
