The golden days of late September in Zurich bring about buzz and excitement as the 14th annual Zurich Film Festival hosts its numerous gala premiers, Hollywood stars and exciting talks. The cosiness of the festival centre brings a unique atmosphere to the city for the entire week.
I find this time of year so inspiring and embrace the intriguing and touching stories the festival brings with a cup of coffee. Nespresso, an official festival partner for many years, launched its new dimension of coffee this September – the Vertuo line. Vertuo is part of the new segment of high quality coffee served in a XXL format. The new size delivers lovers of large cups of coffee (like myself) an exceptional coffee experience.
The Vertuo coffees come in three different sized capsules. The intelligent system of the machine recognizes the barcode of each capsule and knows what size coffee you are planning to enjoy each time you insert a new capsule and press the brew button. This one touch centrifusion technology makes it easy to prepare a short espresso, a gran lungo or a larger mug of alto. I also like the fact that Vertuo brewing process naturally creates a very rich and smooth crema.
