NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., June 19, 2014 – Luxury coffee brand Nespresso is set to open a retail location at Fashion Island this fall.
This will be Orange County’s first standalone Nespresso Boutique, as part of the brand’s continued growth and success.
“Nespresso has become a global brand and household name when it comes to its gourmet single-serve coffee and we couldn’t be more excited to bring their first O.C. retail shop here to Fashion Island,” said Stacie Ellis, senior director of marketing for Irvine Company Retail Properties.
The 1,900-square-foot boutique will serve as a way for customers to experience and explore Nespresso and shoppers will be able to try the high-quality Grand Cru coffees from Nespresso’s OriginalLine and VertuoLine systems. Nespresso machines, Grand Cru coffee capsules and accessories will also be available for purchase.
For over 25 years, Nespresso has redefined the way millions of people enjoy their espresso coffee and has grown into one of the most recognized brands in the world of coffee. Nespresso’s success is built on the highest quality Grand Cru coffees sourced from 1 to 2% of the world’s top coffee beans, smart and innovative machines and personalized customer service.
Nespresso will be located in the Eastside building, adjacent to Macy’s. For more information, visit www.nespresso.com or shopfashionisland.com
