COFFEE THE NESPRESSO WAY The boutique in Bluewater is the first Nespresso boutique worldwide to trial a new personalised customer experience. Their Coffee Specialists are equipped with a tablet which allows them to take orders on the go, with no need for customers to queue. If you’re unsure where to start, their Coffee Specialists will talk you through their full range of machines and accessories, then you can try their Grands Crus at the dedicated Tasting Bar. They’ll ask you about your tastes and preferences to find your perfect coffee option.

When we go to sleep our sense of smell goes to sleep too, and only turns on again just before we wake up – which is why for many people the smell of coffee in the morning is such a powerful experience.
